Vehicle Overview

The five-seat Kizashi is Suzuki's entry in the competitive midsize sedan market. Although it is small on the outside at 183 inches long, the Kizashi competes against midsize sedans like the Honda Accord and Nissan Altima. The available all-wheel-drive Kizashi aims to take on premium compacts like the Audi A4 and Mercedes-Benz C300. Its name means "something great is coming" in Japanese. Front- and all-wheel-drive versions are available.

New for 2012
A new Leather Seat Package for SE trim levels includes power-operated leather front seats with seat heaters. Manual-transmission Sport GTS models no longer have a moonroof or a power driver's seat, which Suzuki says is intended to lower the car's center of gravity in addition to its price.

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 trunk lid rising up in a curve to form a solid-spoiler look. The Sport versions have a more muscular look at the front and add a rear spoiler. Exterior features include:

  • Standard 16-inch wheels
  • Available 18-inch wheels
  • Standard projector-beam headlights
  • Rain-sensing wipers and rear parking sensors (Sport SLS)
  • Available power moonroof

Interior
The Kizashi features a standard tilt/telescoping steering wheel, keyless entry with push-button start, dual-zone automatic climate control and available USB audio connectivity. Interior features include:

  • Available navigation system with backup camera
  • Available Rockford Fosgate CD stereo
  • Cloth seats standard; leather optional
  • Available Bluetooth connectivity

Under the Hood
The Kizashi is powered by a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine, which teams with a six-speed manual or a continuously variable automatic transmission. All-wheel-drive models come only with the CVT. Mechanical features include:

  • 180-horsepower, 2.4-liter four-cylinder (185 hp with manual transmission)
  • Front- or all-wheel drive
  • Fully independent suspension
  • Available lowered sport suspension

Safety
Standard safety features include:

  • Antilock brakes
  • Electronic stability system
  • Side-impact airbags for both rows of seats
  • Side curtain airbags for both rows of seats
