2009 LA Auto Show - Suzuki Ready to Shine

BREA, Calif. November 30, 2009; After a four-month virtual introduction of the 2010 Suzuki Kizashi (pronounced �Kee-Zah-Shee�) to consumers on the Web, American Suzuki Motor Corp. offers Southern California automotive prospects their first in-person look at its all-new sport sedan during the 2009 Los Angeles Auto Show. Arriving in dealer showrooms this December, the all-new Kizashi 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 in the South Hall Suzuki exhibit (S-202), from the well-equipped entry-level Kizashi S priced between $18,999 for FWD and $21,749for AWD, to the luxuriously appointed SLS model ranging from $24,399 for FWD M/T to $26,749 for AWD Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) All prices are net of a $735 destination and handling charge.

Also making its North American auto show debut is the 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.

Suzuki also will present its entire 2010 lineup, including the rugged Grand Vitara compact SUV, award-winning Equator pickup truck and functional SX4 family of vehicles. For two-wheel fanatics and marine enthusiasts, a collection of Suzuki motorcycles, ATVs and outboard motors also will be on display.

In addition, Suzuki will showcase a Road Race Motorsports Kizashi with Road Race�s signature handling and performance mods; a �rotisserie� display showcasing the Kizashi�s underbody performance hardware; a body-in-white Kizashi display showing the vehicle�s world-class construction; and an Equator concept truck, with off-road upgrades provided by ICON Vehicle Dynamics and the Corona Cartel. Both Road Race�s Kizashi and ICON�s Equator recently debuted at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas. During public days, Suzuki also will allow consumers to experience its surf-inspired Makai convertible, offering showgoers the opportunity to take a complimentary picture in the beach-themed SX4 Sport concept vehicle.

Beyond Suzuki�s main display area, the Los Angeles Convention Center�s Kentia Hall will provide the backdrop for a concept Kizashi showcase. The wares of Suzuki audio partner Rockford Fosgate, Westside Auto Group, Delta Tech Industries and Import Tuner magazine all constitute a more personalized take on the Kizashi�s design successes. The custom Kizashis will be on display for the duration of the Los Angeles Auto Show.
