The 2010 Suzuki Kazashi has arrived in Nevada for some hot-weather testing. Our latest look at Suzuki's new midsize sedan has generated some new details--including our first looks at the Kizashi's engine and interior.
Likely to take design cues from handsome Suzuki's Kizashi 3 concept car show at the 2008 New York Auto Show, the production Kizashi sedan is expected to take Suzuki further upmarket. Competing directly with the Accord, Camry, and Altima (one of each was on hand with Suzuki's test team), the Kizashi is expected offer a 3.6-liter DOHC V-6, and a 2.5-liter four-cylinder. The V-6 could generate as much as 300 horsepower, while the four is expected to exceed 150 hp. Optional all-wheel drive is also likely--as is a more consumer-friendly name than the concept-car moniker.
The Kizashi is expected to reach production in three body styles: as a sedan, a sport wagon, and a crossover.--KGP Photography
