The Kizashi is a sound and capable car. It has a snug cabin and tight rear seat. The ride is taut and controlled but a little stiff. Handling is capable and secure but not particularly sporty. The front seats are well shaped and comfortable. Fuel economy is pretty good, but acceleration is rather leisurely, and the CVT makes the 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine work hard and noisily to keep up the pace. Features such as keyless ignition and seat-position memory are rare at this price. All-wheel drive is available.
