Suzuki Kizashi reaches a dead end

Suzuki Motor Corporation is an important Japanese company that is active in many fields that require motoring. The automobile world wouldn’t be the same without Suzuki, as the firm always tries to do its best to please clients. Despite this, the company declares itself defeated by the lack of success that their Kizashi model had. The officials admit that there won’t certainly be a successor in the future.

The Suzuki Kizashi was designed to mix European styling with Japanese quality. And we could say it is a pretty looking sedan. However, the Japanese officials placed the failure of the vehicle on bad timing. The car was introduced on the market just exactly before the global financial crisis born in the U.S.A. There were some discussions on the topic back then, but still, Suzuki decided to risk. And in this case, risk didn’t turn out to be a winning card.

The Suzuki Kizashi is powered by a 2.4-liter DOHC inline four-cylinder engine which had an output that was more potent than many competitive best-sellers at that time. Power is transmitted via a standard six-speed manual or an optional continuously variable transmission (CVT) that was designed to deliver outstanding fuel efficiency. The company was planning to introduce a hybrid model and a wagon variant. All plans were dropped after the line was drawn and minus has been noticed in the brand’s bank account. Probably the biggest problem of Kizashi was its price. In Australia it began at 29,990 AUD.
