Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), also known as "sticker" price, is a recommended selling price that automakers give a new car that is above the invoice price paid by the dealer. It is a price that does not include any options that can be added to a particular car style. When shown as a range, the prices are starting MSRPs, without options, for multiple styles for that model.
This price range reflects for-sale prices on Cars.com for this particular make, model and year.
Best Bets get above-average mpg, class-average or better reliability, class-average or better crash-test ratings, and our recommendation.
These city and highway gas mileage estimates are for the model's standard trim configurations. Where there are optional features, packages or equipment that result in higher gas mileage, those fuel-economy estimates are not included here.

The Kizashi is Suzuki's entry in the competitive midsize sedan market. Although it is small on the outside at about 183 inches long, Suzuki pits the Kizashi against midsize sedans like the Honda Accord and Nissan Altima. Its name means "something great is coming" in Japanese. Front- and all-wheel-drive versions are available.
New for 2011 Suzuki has added the Sport trim to the GTS and SLS models. It features more aggressive exterior touches, including a chrome-accented front fascia, side sill extensions, a trunk spoiler and 18-inch alloy wheels. Sport models also have a lower ride height. A rearview camera is a new feature included with the optional navigation system.
Exterior The Kizashi's grille looks similar to other Suzuki products, and its overall front-end design is not as daring as the concept Kizashi that appeared at auto shows. The rear is where things really get interesting, with the entire trunklid rising up in a curve to form a solid-spoiler look. The new Sport version lends a more muscular look at the front and adds a rear spoiler. Exterior features include:
Standard 16-inch wheels
Available 18-inch wheels
Standard projector-beam headlights
Rain-sensing wipers and sonar rear parking sensors (SLS Sport)
Power glass sunroof (Sport GTS, SLS)
Interior The Kizashi features a standard tilt/telescoping steering wheel, keyless entry with push-button start, dual-zone automatic climate control and USB connectivity. Interior features include:
Available navigation system and rearview camera
Optional 425-watt Rockford Fosgate audio system
Optional leather seats
Optional hands-free Bluetooth connectivity
Under the Hood Only a 2.4-liter four-cylinder is available, and it's teamed with a six-speed manual or a continuously variable automatic transmission with paddle shifters. All-wheel-drive models come only with the CVT. Mechanical features include:
180-horsepower, 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine (185 hp with manual transmission)
