About Suzuki Kizashi

*Important Note: Please be aware that Suzuki has filed for bankruptcy protection and is shutting down its car business in the U.S.

The 2013 Kizashi is modern and distinctive, and it is the top offering in a model lineup that is otherwise rather lean and aging. Introduced as a 2010 model, the Kizashi was meant to rejuvenate Suzuki's U.S. auto division. With Suzuki's recent bankruptcy filing and its decision to stop sell cars in America, that rejuvenation turned out to be a dream. Nevertheless, the Kizashi represents a genuine bright spot for the automaker. Available in front-wheel drive (FWD) or all-wheel drive (AWD), the 5-passenger Kizashi has a budget-friendly price and offers solid handling, power and fuel economy in a package that looks good on the inside and great on the outside.

2013 Suzuki Kizashi

The 2013 Suzuki Kizashi gets a new optional navigation and infotainment system, and the included equipment and driveline choices on the four trim levels are shuffled to rationalize the number of combinations on offer.

The 2012 Kizashi carries over mostly unchanged from 2011, in which the Sport version, that included lighter alloy wheels and aerodynamic modifications, became available with the GTS and SLS upper trim levels. The base S continues as is, while leather seating is now an option for the mid-level SE version.

2011 Suzuki Kizashi

The big news is the addition of a Sport derivative to the Kizashi's GTS and SLS lineup. Notably, all Kizashis are sporty, but the Sport enhances the package with unique - and lighter - alloy wheels, revised handling and aero mods that are extremely well integrated. Inside, the sport buckets - at least in leather-clad SLS form - receive contrasting stitching on seats, shift boot and parking brake.

Suzuki partnered with Daewoo for its previous mid-size offering, the lackluster and ultimately unsuccessful Verona. This time around Suzuki handled the engineering and design work itself. The result is the 2010 Kizashi, a car that may transform the way consumers look at Suzuki-badged automobiles.

"For the money this car has it all! Has a great eye appeal, exterior and interior. This car handles amazing, hugs the road like it was made for it. Solid feel behind the wheel and very quiet on the inside while going down the road with a smooth ride. Very comforatable ride for those long road trips. To me your pretty much getting an audi, subaru, cadillac car built into Suzuki at a better price! Cant beat that. only cons I can point out is its a little slower on the take off but witht the cvt transmission you really have to watch it because your goin 60mph without even knowing it and how quiet the ride is. The other is the MPG, getting the same as most v6's but with the AWD its worth it. Great car!!"

"why pay more i have owned a number of luxury cars. the 2011 suzuki kizashi is by far the best that i have owned to date. The quality is over the top. The value is over over the top. Not the fastest car in the world but fast eanough. The awd system is the same as the porsche panamerica and i love it. the sound system, rockford fosgate could not be better, this car is under 30k and feels like a car priced twice as much. Great looking car to boot. Get one. ours a silver gts awd. love it. about 30 mpg."
