Suzuki Auto Show Coverage

Suzuki is the automotive division of Suzuki Motor Corporation based in Hamamatsu, Japan. Michio Suzuki founded the company in 1909 producing weaving looms, then explored producing a passenger car in 1937 before the onset of World War II. After the war, Suzuki began developing motorcycles and eventually cars with the introduction of the 1955 Suzulight. The company entered the US market in 1985 with the Samurai and produced vehicles for other manufacturers under contract like the Chevrolet Sprint, a rebadged version of the Suzuki Cultus. American Suzuki Motor Corporation filed for bankruptcy protection in 2012 and announced it would no longer sell new vehicles in the US. Its Canadian operations folded a short time later.

    For their home turf show, Japanese automakers often bring out the best and quirkiest.

Suzuki continues the trend this year with a full slate of world premieres of unusual designs wrapped around some eco-friendly powertrains. The ...

    Report: Suzuki ducking out of Los Angeles, Detroit auto shows
    1319747520

    We're gearing up for the next auto show season, with the Los Angeles showcase taking place in just a few weeks. Suzuki – an automaker that hasn't been doing so hot lately – will reportedly be absent from this year's festivities in Los Angeles, and will not be seen at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit come January.

    Frankfurt: 2012 Suzuki Swift Sport sure looks like fun... for someone else
    1316040060

    Despite the on-again, off-again rumors about its potential voyage to the United States, the Suzuki Swift still remains a tasty piece of forbidden fruit. A shame, too, especially since this new Sport version sounds like it'd be quite the enjoyable steer. The Swift Sport was first previewed by the S-Concept that debuted back in Geneva, but now packs 134 ...

    Official: Suzuki to launch sprightlier Swift Sport in Frankfurt
    1315918800

    It's compact, sporty, has a manual transmission... and we don't expect it to arrive Stateside anytime soon. We're talking about the all-new Suzuki Swift Sport, which is set to make its official debut at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show. The compact hot hatch is a tuned version of the standard Swift, with power rated at 134 horses and torque at 118 ...

    Official: Suzuki previews new Swift Sport ahead of Frankfurt debut

    Hot-hatch enthusiasts take note: the Suzuki Swift Sport is back. Having updated the Swift range last year, Suzuki unveiled the rather tantalizing S-Concept in Geneva a few months back. What you see here may not be quite as extreme as the show car, but carries the salient points to the showroom. And if the previous-generation Swift Sport was anything to ...

    New York 2011: Suzuki makes a Kizashi Turbo, calls it the Apex concept
    1303422060

    Suzuki has often flirted with the idea of strapping a turbocharger to the Kizashi, and it's once again putting it at the front of our minds with this, the Apex concept, here at the 2011 New York Auto Show. The Kizashi Apex uses a Garrett turbocharger, air-to-liquid intercooler and a recalibrated ECU to produce an estimated 275 to 300 horsepower, mated ...

    New York 2011: Suzuki Kizashi EcoCharge Concept shows us what we wish existed
    1303405320

    For a car that doesn't exist – yet – the Suzuki Kizashi hybrid certainly rears its head an awful lot. The rumor had been that Suzuki wanted to release the car in 2011, but this plan was apparently canceled last year. Earlier this year, we heard that Suzuki might dip into the Volkswagen parts bin for both diesel and hybrid powertrains (VW owns ...

    Suzuki Kizashi EcoCharge and Apex concepts bow in New York [w/video]

    Suzuki is building a car that we wish more people knew about – the Kizashi. The automaker's mid-size sedan was featured in Suzuki's first-ever Super Bowl ad, a modified version set a Bonneville speed record and the stock car traveled a grueling trail from Tokyo to Los Angeles. Now, Suzuki has prepared two new concept versions, showing us what might ...

    Suzuki bringing two Kizashi concepts to New York Auto Show

    Suzuki is hoping to jumpstart its slow-selling Kizashi with two concepts that will debut at the New York International Auto Show. Suzuki says that the cars will each feature a different "advanced propulsion system," though they aren't dropping many hints as to what that may mean. Whatever it is, Suzuki's New York show display will be advanced ...

    Geneva 2011: Suzuki Swift S-Concept puts its money where its name is

    The Suzuki Swift is a genuinely good car, standing as something of an exception in Suzuki's lineup until recent additions like the SX4 and Kizashi came along. But calling it "swift" might be a bit of wishful thinking, if not a huge exaggeration. Enter the Swift S-Concept, which Suzuki has just presented at the Geneva Motor Show. Few details have been ...

The chugging chaise appears in its new "Kizashi Kicks" advertising campaign, a television spot comparing the Kizashi sedan to an Audi A4 2.0T and the well-worn sofa. We'll let Suzuki tell you about it, before we deliver the technical insight: This 1970s-era sofa commissioned ...

    New York 2010: 2011 Suzuki Kizashi Sport lands on show floor, V6 and hybrid not happening

    "You'll turn blue in the face if you're holding your breath waiting for a V6 Kizashi." That was the word from a Suzuki spokesman at last night's insider preview of the 2011 Suzuki Kizashi Sport. It makes sense since Suzuki and General Motors have parted ways and that V6 was expected to come from GM. While we had been hoping a V6 would be part of the ...

    SEMA 2009: Custom Suzuki Kizashi models impress, upset

    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 ...
