The Kizashi is the first mid-size Suzuki automobile sold in the Australian market. Kizashi was launched in India on 2 February 2011. Kizashi is a Japanese word which means 'something great is coming', 'omen', 'sign', or 'warning', so it is possible Suzuki means to suggest to other automobile manufacturers that its Kizashi is an example of Suzuki's future products. The Kizashi aspires to be Suzuki's flagship sedan and currently exceeds Japanese government regulations concerning exterior dimensions and engine displacement for cars classified as 'compact'. Standard equipment includes front-wheel drive (FWD) and a 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine developing 185 hp (138 kW) and 170 lbft (230 Nm) of torque.
