Suzuki launches 4×4 variants of its new 2011 Swift and Kizashi sedan. The 2011 Swift is offered exclusively with a 94-horsepower 1.2-liter gasoline engine linked to a 5-speed manual gearbox. Suzuki said it returns a fuel economy of 6.7 lt/100km urban, 4.9 lt/100km highway and 5.5 lt/100km combined.
The five-door Swift 4×4 is priced in Germany at €14,490 ($21,000) with standard features including air conditioning and an MP3-capable CD radio.
The Kizashi 4×4 sedan features Suzuki’s intelligent all-wheel drive system (i-AWD), which allows the driver to manually switch the car from front- to all-wheel drive with the push of a button, with power coming from a 178HP-strong 2.4-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine linked to a automatic transmission.
The Kizashi 4×4 averages 11.3 lt/100km in the city, 6.6 lt/100km on highway and 8.3 lt/100km on the combined cycle.
Prices start from €29,900 ($41,000). The standard equipment package features a two-zone automatic climate control, Xenon headlights, ten-way power adjustable and heated driver’s seat with memory function, and more.
