The Suzuki Kizashi is an upcoming mid-size car from Suzuki. It will be the late successor to the GM Daewoo built Suzuki Verona. Production will start in early 2010 in Sagara, Japan, with North American production to likely be assembled at CAMI Automotive in Ingersoll, Ontario, Canada, just like most other North American mid-size sedans. Reports suggest that the car will be built on a front engine front/all wheel drive platform developed by Suzuki. Its engine options will be a 2.5 litre 4-cylinder and a 3.6 litre V6. The price range will range from $21,000 to $28,000. This car is much needed to compete with cars such as the Chevy Malibu, Toyota Camry, and Hyundai Sonata. It might be called Kizashi or sold under a different name. A crossover variant will also replace the Suzuki XL-7. As of January 2009, the Kizashi is on hold and possibly canceled. Suzuki has not confirmed nor either denied the cancellation of the car. On Tuesday January 6th, 2008, Suzuki announced that the Kizashi was not delayed and that the news it was delayed was just a rumor. Suzuki also said the Kizashi will make its debut at the 2009 New York International Auto Show.
