Thumbs up Kizashi 3 concept with V6 AWD unveiled - close to production model

Guys, just saw the Kizashi 3 Concept, unveiled in New York, today. It now seems more realistic (close to production model) than the initial concepts. Must say, it looks drooling.. Hope it comes to India too!

Four-wheel drive with Advanced i-AWD system
Wheels: 21-inch, nine-spoke, aluminum, 255/30ZR21 9.5J

Stunning, in a fatboy Suzuki way. Though I wish the nose wasn't so bulbous in the profile view. Looks like a 300C emulator. Nevertheless, stunning.

Looks cool. I can see the SX4 styling cues in it. Only a more stylish version. Look closely and you will see. Only thing is they have chopped off half the rear light and the front lights are more sleek and discreet.

Amazing nonetheless.

Its definitely fabulous. I just hope they dont source their engines from GM as they do in their SUV's. Unfortunately the car will toned down on its way to production ofcourse and it'll loose most of what we see here.
:(

^ the internet has no press only days

I find that Suzuki is just beginning to take the mid/full size market seriously, but even then, their product line to be very disjointed. Huge gaps between the compact mainstay and the outsourced mid sizers.

Looks neat!!! The first time you look at the back it gives you slight impression of an Audi.The front grille should have been better. Anyways great work from Suzuki. Im sure MSIL will be itching to bring this by 2010.

lol, you know this is funny, just this evening I was driving down the highway and saw a Suzuki economy car driving down the road and thought to myself, "what are they thinking", and "I can't believe they are still alive making cars that look like that".

However, this new car is truly a stunner, I really like it.

Somehow the side profile reminds me of the Chrysler 300C.
