Suzuki Kizashi concept news — Three-piece suit - 2008

Read more on:

Why have just one concept previewing your
next production car when you could have… three?

This is the Kizashi 3, a concept aiming to
get us all excited about Suzuki’s new flagship sedan, set to arrive in 2010.

Why 3? Because we’ve already seen Kizashi
1 and 2,
revealed in Frankfurt and Tokyo last year respectively.

As the numbers stack up, the Kizashi seems
to be slowly honing in on production readiness - the evil, beaky front end has
morphed into a fractionally more subtle nose. But it’s still far stronger than
anything we’ve seen from Suzuki before.

Measuring 465cm from nose to tail, the
Kizashi is shorter than a BMW 5-Series but significantly longer than a
3-Series. A genuine five-seater, it features a 3.6-litre V6 powering all four

Suzuki says that the Kizashi’s styling
reflects a ‘dynamic athlete in motion’, and demonstrates a ‘strong, honed
physique’, while the press spiel is littered with references to ‘physical
strength from intense, daily training’ and the like.

Expect Kizashi 4 (because with a whole two
years until we see the production car, there’s time for plenty more concepts,
surely) to come with protein shake holder and built-in sweatbands. Mmm.
