The Suzuki Kizashi range has been updated with the new specifications, equipment and prices headlining the changes.
Now all sharing the flagship Kizashi Sport AWD’s sports body kit, 10mm lower suspension and ‘Sport’ moniker, the three-variant line-up has a new entry-level price point.
Thanks to the new pricing structure, the 131kW/230Nm 2.4-litre four-cylinder Sport Touring now starts at $29,990 driveaway when teamed to a six-speed manual transmission.
Priced $1500 above the car's previous $28,490 list price, the Kizashi Sport Touring now includes Bluetooth connectivity, fog lights and 18-inch alloy wheels.
The Kizashi Sport Touring equipped with the optional automatic continuously variable transmission (CVT) costs $32,490 before on-roads, making it $2000 dearer than before.
The $37,990 Sport Prestige is up $1000 and is now offered exclusively with a CVT, following the deletion of the previously available manual alternative.
The model carries over its heated and power leather seats, front and rear parking sensors, dusk-sensing headlights, rain-sensing wipers, satellite navigation, reversing camera and sunroof.
The range-topping Kizashi Sport AWD, which features the same 2.4-litre engine but partnered to a CVT and all-wheel drive, remains priced at $39,990. It again distinguishes itself with a sports leather steering wheel and unique silver stitched leather seats.
Safety across the range also remains unchanged and includes seven airbags, traction control and anti-lock brakes with electronic brake force distribution.
The revised Suzuki Kizashi Sport range, based on the original model that's been on sale in Australia since 2010, will be in dealerships from September.
