Pak Suzuki has launched the Kizashi in Pakistan with prices starting at 50 lakh Pakistani Rupee (INR 30.72 lakhs).
The Kizashi was launched in the Indian market in February 2011. The specifications of the Pakistani model are identical to the Kizashi that was sold in India. The sedan is no longer listed on Maruti-Suzuki’s website, and stands discontinued.
Power comes from a 2.4-liter four-cylinder petrol engine paired to a 6-speed manual transmission or a CVT automatic unit. The engine develops 178 PS at 6,500 rpm and 230 Nm of torque at 4,000 rpm.
Features come in the form of keyless entry with push button start, automatic wipers, alloy wheels, parking sensors, a multifunction steering wheel, climate control, power adjustable seat, leather upholstery, ESP and paddle-shifters on the CVT variant.
The Kizashi (a Japanese word for ‘Sign of good things to come’) was never a successful product for Maruti in India. Owing to brand perception (Maruti is perceived as a budget brand), sales of the Kizashi were soon undertaken only upon request. Dealers who had existing stocks of the sedan, reportedly offered interesting discounts on the car (media reports say that some dealers offered a Maruti hatchback free along with purchase of a Kizashi).
Suzuki has not planned a successor for the Kizashi, which one regional managing director described was a ‘very unlucky car’ for the brand.
