Suzuki is said to be unveiling the Kizashi 3 at next week's New York Auto Show, so we thought we'd refresh our memories about the Manga-styled Kizashi 1 and 2 concepts we saw at the Frankfurt Motor Show and Tokyo Motor Show. There's still no information about what powertrain (we've heard talk of a V8) or platform any car derived from the Kizashi concepts would ride upon, but we like where Suzuki's going with the idea. We expect that the Kizashi 3 may be nearly production-feasible, from what Suzuki has to say. Does this mean there's a sports sedan in the offing for Suzuki? Possibly. Or not. For a taste of what it might be like to see one of these cars actually out in the wild, we've turned up some videos of the concepts riding around in a digital world, posted after the jump.

      so Kizashi is the sedan/4dorr hatch version and Kizashi 2 is the CUV?

      If produced, that front end treatment would make it stand out quite well.
      Unless parked to the upcoming refresh of the Aveo hatch that is.

      I would take it over an x6 anyday.

      Maybe it's me or the poor quality video but quite a few scenes in the 2nd video of it running around look like CGI..

        Both videos are entirely CG

      I like #1, #2, not so much.

      Nice, but the Kizashi 2 lacks originality. It would only really stand out if released as-is since every other manufacturer tones down their concepts for production (save the few production-ready "concepts")
