The new Suzuki Kizashi will go on sale in January; only 500 will be made available with prices starting at £21,995.
The Kizashi is powered by a 2.4 litre four cylinder engine with switchable two and four wheel drive and a CVT transmission featuring a six speed manual mode operated via steering wheel switches or the gearlever. The car returns 34mpg and co2 emissions are approximately 191g/km.
The name Kizashi means 'A sign of great things to come' in Japanese and is intended to move the brand upmarket while maintaining its traditional emphasis on content and value. Suzuki claims "strong yet refined" performance. The company has already sold 23,000 examples worldwide, and is bringing the Kizashi to the UK as the new flagship of its range.
