Suzuki Kizashi Concept

Suzuki KizashiWhen Suzuki showed us their new Kizashi concept last month at the Frankfurt Auto Show we were all in awe at the look of the vehicle. For a moment we didn’t care about how much it packed in the engine and what features it may or may not have. The design of the vehicle was enough to catch our attention and pull us in.

Than we snapped out of it and were able to get our hands on all the information that was available, which wasn’t easy. Unfortunately getting our hands on any technical information is all but impossible, but we were able to discover what Suzuki’s plans are for the vehicle.

Kizashi is a Japanese word meaning “prelude” or “foretaste”. The name symbolizes the change within Suzuki. The Concept Kizashi represents Suzuki`s passion for challenges (this is a major aspect of Suzuki`s corporate culture), its future direction, and the competitive strengths that are unique to Suzuki.

To fulfill this mission, the design theme for the Concept Kizashi is “a dynamic athlete in motion”. This is because its D-segment ideals are summed up by the attributes of a great athlete: dedication to sporting challenges, physical strength that comes from hard daily training, a honed physique with no superfluous weight, and the presence and dignity of a champion.

The Japanese automaker refers to the concept as a “crossover sport wagon.” It remains unclear if the Kizashi will be produced or if it is simply an indication of a future Suzuki design language. We’re hoping that Suzuki will move ahead with the design so we can get behind the wheel!
