Chicago premiere for the luxurious sedan Suzuki Kizashi
With the all-new 2010 Suzuki Kizashi (pronounced "Kee-Zah-Shee") leading the charge, American Suzuki Motor Corp. (ASMC) arrives at the 2010 Chicago Auto Show prepared to amaze show goers with its multitalented lineup of performance- and value-packed cars and trucks. The media-acclaimed Kizashi, which arrived in dealer showrooms last December, delivers a premium package and experience without the premium price tag, and provides a unique blend of dynamic performance attributes and features more typical of the near-luxury sport sedan segment.
All four trim levels of the 2010 Kizashi will be on display at the Suzuki exhibit (NH5 – North Hall), from the well-equipped entry-level Kizashi S, priced between $18,999 for FWD and $21,749 for AWD, to the luxuriously appointed SLS model ranging from $24,399 for FWD M/T to $26,749 for AWD Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT). Prices do not include the $735 destination and handling charge.
In addition, Suzuki will showcase the all-new 2010 Suzuki SX4 SportBack. Sharing its profile with the all-wheel-drive SX4 Crossover, the SX4 SportBack offers an all-new 2.0-liter engine delivering 150 horsepower with its standard six-speed manual transmission. For those with a preference for action with less interaction, a performance-tuned CVT (with paddle shifters) is optional. Suzuki's new hot hatch also features an aero package, revised rear spoiler, lower ride package (15mm when compared to the SX4 Crossover), all-new instrument cluster and integrated navigation system.
Beyond its versatile lineup of production vehicles, Suzuki will showcase a Road Race Motorsports Kizashi with Road Race's signature handling and performance mods and an Equator concept truck with off-road upgrades provided by ICON Vehicle Dynamics and the Corona Cartel. Both project builds debuted at the 2009 SEMA Show in Las Vegas.
