2010 Kizashi Overview

2010 Suzuki Kizashi Sport – Click above for high-res image gallery Miami isn't exactly a driver's town. It's a tangle of perfectly perpendicular secondary streets demarcated by lengthy stoplights and the occasional drawbridge or toll booth. Perched on the very tip of Florida, it's one of the last places we would voluntarily spend time behind the wheel, but despite the bumper-to-bumper traffic, hair-raising lane changes and lawless nature of the traffic patterns, high-end metal is the norm down here. We're fighting for our right to merge against a Bentley Continental GT, Ferrari F430 and a murdered-out Nissan GT-R as we make our way toward South Beach, contemplating the implications of dinging a car worth more than our mortgage when it dawns on us: The high rollers around us should make way – we're driving one of the most unique cars in the country. Suzuki was kind enough to hand us the keys to one of the only Kizashi Sport models in existence. In fact, this is the same prototype that took center stage at the New York Auto Show, and while the suits in Japan have demanded that this Sport eventually meet with the Great Crusher in the Sky, the company's PR team have managed to keep the sedan from meeting its untimely fate long enough for us to do battle with traffic. %Gallery-93190% Photos by Zach Bowman / Copyright ©2009 Weblogs, Inc.

The premise is simple: Build a European-quality driver with Japanese reliability. If you haven't read what we think about the base Kizashi, we suggest you brush up by checking out our latest review. When we drove the car last December, we made it clear that while the exterior was pretty good looking, we wished the production version had borrowed a little more heavily from the concepts Suzuki showed off way back when. The Kizashi Sport answers our longing as best as the production car can thanks to a slew of new aesthetic additions inside and out. First, we have to say that the car you're looking at is a pre-production model, so the end result may vary. However, Suzuki assures us that when the Kizashi Sport goes on sale in July, it will be the spitting image of our prototype tester. That means the front fascia will still boast the same attractive faux canards below the fog lights (Suzuki calls them jowls) and the side skirts will be aggressively flanged to match.
