Suzuki has unveiled a high performance concept version of its stunning new Kizashi sedan.

Suzuki Australian General Manager Tony Devers today pulled back the covers on the high powered Concept Kizashi Turbo.

Suzuki Concept Kizashi Turbo boasts a force-fed power boost, lifting peak power from 131 to 179 kW, and torque from 230 Newton-metres to 330.

“Customers have been asking about a turbocharged version of this car since the original Concept Kizashi was unveiled at Frankfurt more than three years ago,” said Devers.

“The race-bred Kizashi chassis was always designed to handle more power and we are excited about the potential for a high performance version. We worked closely with our good friends from Road Race Motorsports in the US to produce a concept car with the potential to attack the medium car performance market.”

With its upgraded engine, Concept Kizashi Turbo is nearly 40 per cent more powerful than its naturally aspirated 'sibling'.

Kizashi’s high handling levels are assisted in the Turbo Concept by a lower ride height, uprated brakes and a front strut brace for increased rigidity.

The performance potential is clear from the aggressive lines, accentuated by a new rear deck spoiler and 19-inch alloy wheels wrapped in 40-series low profile sports rubber.

Devers said Suzuki wanted to gauge reaction to a high performance Kizashi.
