American Suzuki Offers "Free Gas for Summer" To Boost Sales
The 2011 Kizashi Sport, shown in New York International a month ago, is offered on Kizashi GTS and SLS trim levels and goes on sale in the United States this August. Pricing will be announced closer to the vehicle's arrival in dealer showrooms. Features include a more muscular front fascia with chrome accents and lower grille, body side sill extensions, lower body side molding with chrome accents, a trunk mounted spoiler, custom light weight 18-inch alloy wheels and a 10mm lower ride height.
American Suzuki sales in March were a dismal 2,246, a 72 percent tumble from March 2009 and year-to-date sales through March are 5,661, a 63 percent drop from 2009. We'll find out Monday how the month of April treated Suzuki sales in the U.S. and we'll see how the just-announced free gas for summer promotion and the Sport version of the Kizashi will help move metal.
