Suzuki is looking to get back into the U.S. auto market in a big way and to do so it launched the Kizashi mid-size car last year to compete with hallmarks like the Toyota Corolla and Honda Accord. Initially offered with only a 4-cylinder, Suzuki doesn’t want anyone walking away from its dealerships wanting for power and so the automaker is expected to deliver a more powerful V6 model. A Suzuki rep told the folks at LeftLaneNews that Suzuki has, “more exciting Kizashi product news to share” in New York, leading to the obvious conclusion of the V6 model’s debut.
When the 4-cylinder was launched, Suzuki also showed off a V6 prototype car, which featured a 3.6-liter V6 making 260-hp. The prototype also included a more aggressive bodykit, which we expect will be a part of the high-end V6 model’s package.
We quite liked the 4-cylinder model when we reviewed it last year, which offered a more dynamic driving experience than most mid-size sedans, making us eager to see how the V6 delivers.
We’ll be on hand to bring you live coverage of the New York Auto Show starting March 31st.
