Putting an end to the rumors regarding the launch of a new luxury car, Maruti Suzuki India, launched its much awaited luxury sedan "Maruti Suzuki Kizashi" yesterday. The new Maruti Kizashi marks Maruti's debut into the upper end of the market. Since the last 1.5 years, there had been rumors regarding Kizashi, but Maruti officially announced the launch only recently.
The new Maruti Kizashi is powered by 2.4litre petrol engine which delivers it a maximum power of 178PS. The new Maruti Kizashi comes in two variants - Automatic Transmission priced at Rs.17.5-lakh and Six-Speed Manual Transmission at Rs.16.5-lakh.
Maruti Suzuki has positioned Kizashi as a sports sedan and will be available from next month onwards. The Kizashi is equipped with unique safety and luxury features and will be manufactured at Suzuki Motor Corporation's Sagara plant in Japan and imported to India as a completely built-up unit (CBU).
Maruti claims a mileage of 12.53km/l in the automatic model and 12.45km/l in manual model. Kizashi can be booked at the Maruti-Suzuki Showrooms with an initial deposit of Rs.50,000/-
Maruti had launched Kizashi in Japan in 2009 and later in United States. In Maruti Suzuki India's MEO(Managing Executive Officer) Mayank Pareek, "Kizashi is not about volumes... this sedan will further expand our portfolio in the market. Though such luxury car segment now occupies just 2.8 percentage of the Indian car market, in future we see this going up fast. This launch is in preparation for the future."
