Suzuki confirms the Kizashi for the UK

Updated: 


Suzuki has confirmed it will bring its Kizashi saloon to the UK.

The Ford Mondeo sized saloon will come in limited numbers though, with just 500 to be imported from Japan, and it will only offer the one engine.

That unit will be a 178bhp 2.4-litre petrol engine, which will emit a sixeable 191g/km CO2. It will also offer four-wheel drive and a CVT automatic gearbox as standard. There will be no diesel engine on offer though, normally a key requirement in this competitive sector.

It will come in just the one specification level, Sport, and will be priced from £24,000.This will aim it squarely at top-spec Mondeos and four-wheel drive Vauxhall Insignias.

Standard kit on offer will include electric powered and heated leather seats, cruise control, Bluetooth, and 18-inch alloy wheels.
