The Kizashi is a sound and capable car that is among the smaller family sedans, and as a result it has a snug cabin and tight rear seat. A 2.4-liter four-cylinder is standard and comes with a six-speed manual transmission, while a CVT is optional. All-wheel drive is available, and features a switch to deactivate it. Electronic stability control is standard.

BMW for the price of a Toyota. by Happy Camper in Texas. on 03/09/2012. Trim: 2012 Suzuki Kizashi Sport SLS FWD [Discontinued], Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: This car is a joy to drive. The handling and feel are amazing. I've never had a car that I enjoyed driving so much. Loaded with technology. Complete strangers come up to me and say "Nice loking car!". It has a nice quality sound when you open and close the doors. The seats are comfortable with great lumbar support. This is important to me because I have a bad back. The sound attenuation package does a good job minimizing road noise. Mine has the Kenwood/Garmin navigation system. The stereo sound systed is killer. Uses 87 octane gasoline and gets great mileage.
Cons: The gas door does not lock. I would like to have seen an internal release. The Garmin did not have the latest update installed. I had to go to Garmin and buy the latest map update. I gave it a 9 on performance. Would like to see a smidge more horsepower but it wasn't a deal breaker. With high gas prices, this is probably a good thing. There is no problem passing and entering freeway ramps.
Overall review: Suzuki has done an outstanding job with the Kizashi. My wife and I love this car and I expect to see them more and more on the road.
