Suzuki Kizashi 2011 launched in the UAE
Al Rostamani Trading Company, the sole distributor of Suzuki in the UAE has quietly launched their sporty midsize sedan, the new Kizashi, as a 2012 model in its showrooms. The much-hyped Suzuki Kizashi had been launched in Oman almost a year back and 6 months ago in Saudi Arabia.
The Kizashi, is powered by a 176 hp 2.4-litre unit with 230 Nm of torque, attached to a CVT transmission that can be controlled via steering-mounted paddle shifters.
There is only one model on sale, currently called the Kizashi Sport, that the dealer claims to be fully loaded. Performance features include an all-wheel-drive system, sports-tuned suspension, lower ride height, ABS brakes with electronic brake distribution, an “intelligent” electronic stability control with traction control.
The exterior is fitted with alloy wheels, HID headlights, fog lamps and additional chrome fittings. Interior includes leather power seats, sunroof, remote keyless entry, power windows, door locks and mirrors, cruise control, trip computer, automatic climate control and a premium sound system CD stereo system.
The car is priced at a premium rate of Dhs 103,000, and is available with only 3 colours at the moment. Cheaper models aren’t expected in the immediate future, so the Kizashi will definitely remain a rare sight.
