Suzuki's collective lineup never lit the automotive sales world on fire, but there's no reason the Kizashi couldn't have. First impressions are important and the Kizashi's clean taut lines are a fair representation of the quality you'll find throughout the rest of the sedan that falls somewhere between compact and midsize. Buttons and dials have a sturdy feel more commonly found in German competitors and ergonomically everything in the cabin makes sense. Options are plentiful with everything from touch-screen navigation and Bluetooth to rear sonar parking and a 10-way power adjustable driver's seat. Even the base trim comes standard with push button ignition, 8 standard airbags and dual-zone climate control. To scoot all this equipment around the Kizashi calls on the 180 horsepower coming from its 2.4-liter Inline-4 when mated with a CVT, or 185 with a six-speed manual. The 2.4 is the only engine on tap, but the CVT can send power to the front wheels, or all four wheels on the top three trim levels. Though it's not exactly a rocket, nice weighty steering and well-tuned suspension make for a blast on twisty roads and paddle shifters for the CVT re-inject some of the fun those transmissions notoriously take away. All this and a Top Safety Pick+ wasn't enough to save the Kizashi and it's kin from a bankruptcy preventing Suzuki from selling cars in the U.S. See more... See Less

Pros Cons
I like the transmission smoothness Gas mileage - but still decent
Ability to go from fwd to awd Cut gear box makes car sluggish
Dual zone temperature control - my husband's always hot and i'm always cold. Very poor power - needs turbo
Memory seats - it's much easier to just push a button Quality of mats & carpet - cheap!
Comfort: space and instrumentations. the car really performed. Driver's seat could be more comfortable - form fitting
Driver's seat is extremely comfortable - good on long trips Audio system - display does not fit all info on scroll
Engine responsiveness at high speeds Poor acceleration from a stop in automatic transmission mode
Lack of road noise, and smoothness while at highway speeds Engine performance: fuel economy & power
Handling, especially in the bad weather Front is too low on road - it scrapes at times
Styling: both exterior & interior Plastic grille & light covers around fog lights
