Delta Tech Engineering Suzuki Kizashi - Click above image for high-res gallery

We totally dig the new 2010 Suzuki Kizashi. It's a bold step forward for Suzuki and (hopefully) a harbinger of great things to come, which also happens to be what "Kizashi" means. However, the looks are a little, well... not outstanding. Not that it's particularly bad-looking (it ain't), but what if it were a little more... special? SEMA to the rescue!

We've got a trio of modded Kizashis for you to peruse down in the gallery, but how about some background info up front? First up is Delta Tech Engineering's car which might be our favorite. Delta Tech specializes in lighting and every light on the car is either LED or HID. Even though big mouth-look grilles are on the way out fashion-wise, we like the snout on this guy. We also like the fact that it has a cold air intake, custom exhaust and Koni coilovers.

While we just said that the Delta Tech Engineering might be our favorite Kizashi, the Road Race Motorsports Platinum Edition Kizashi pushes all the right buttons with an even more aggressive body kit. It also features a custom air intake, engine management system and data logger. You also get 13-inch slotted rotors up front (though "only" 10-inches out back). Custom springs, sway bars and chassis stiffeners round the package out.

[UPDATE: We wrongly identified Westside's Kizashi as Import Tuner's car. A total mistake on our (my) part. Sorry 'bout that.]

Lastly, we've got Westside's custom Kizashi – a car we just can't wrap our heads around. From the Frankenstein's Monster neck-bolts as exhaust tips to the bizarre two-tone paint job to the Jianghuai GIGANTIC grill, we're totally, 100% not in love. And that's that.

      I think they did a good job of toning down the styling enough to make this ride appealing to mass audiences, while still making it appealing to the fringes among us who like the oddball looking cars. As long as it looks just a little bit edgy and performs well, especially with AWD, it should sell really well.

      Me, I'm waiting for an AWD wagon version, unless Subaru decides to grace the US with a porky Legacy GT wagon for 2010 or 2011.

      yea that 3rd one is... out there...? first 2 are really nice! and the evo 8-9 hood vent looks pretty decent on the 2nd one!

      That last car... is it just me, or were they trying to rip off the Veyron with the paint scheme, somehow?
        • 5 Years Ago
        My thoughts exactly - it looks like they are trying to copy the Galibier, even with the front 'mesh' grille, but have failed miserably. The first car looks great though.

        Suddenly it all makes sense...

        ...for a given value of "sense", that is.

      Does the second one have a turbo...i think i see a turbo timer not sure, either way im liking this car more and more

      Too bad anyone that buys a suzuki is probably just going to throw a big bench on the trunk and some ugly ass chrome wheels on it and call it a racecar. Oh well. At least these look nice.

        I don't really believe everyone who has Suzuki or will purchase this model will make it into a shopping cart. It can look really nice if done tastefully. FiveAxis styling would look pretty awesome. Take out the (S) badge from grill, StopTech's, Coils, Light weight titanium exhaust, intake, (decent) set of wheels - ( i.e. 57 Motorsports - Volk RE30 - SSR F-RS), Recaro's and call it a day.

      The car looks like many other cars out together.

      I'm usually not into Suzuki (except the Suzuki Swift which sadly they don't make it over here) cars but I must admit they look pretty good, especially the 2 silver ones.

      I thought you said there would be 4 versions of this car? Where is the 4th from Westside Auto Group, or was it Import Tuners? Your previous post has us confused at to which Kizashi is which.

      That maroon one with the gold wheels is awful. Terrible.

      This car is getting a lot of performance enthusiast attention for a relatively sedate family sedan...looks good on Suzuki! In a world where the new 3 series is likely to be the size of a '98-01 740i (everything is getting enormous), I find I'm really liking the proportions of this sedan.
