Hollywood and Tom Clancy aren’t the exclusive owners of sequels — Suzuki, for one, brought the second of two Kizashi concepts to the Tokyo Motor Show.

The first Kizashi, shown earlier in the year at Frankfurt, was an exotic concept said to be an influence on the new Suzuki large sedan on the drawing boards at the Japanese automaker. The second version will be a crossover sport wagon drawn from the same styling themes — themes which convey “the dynamism of a top athlete,” Suzuki says in a breathless, brief press release.

“Conceived for energetic people in activities ranging from business to leisure, the Concept Kizashi 2 has an emotionally appealing shape that reflects a dual focus on status and vitality in a way that generates excitement about its performance and heightens the pleasure of ownership,” they add.

 

The powertrain for the concept will be a 3.6-liter V-6 mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. It's the biggest engine ever used by the Japanese small car and motorcycle maker. The company says that it’s working on a hybrid version, perhaps to divert attention from its stand theme of “small cars for a big future.”
