2012 Kizashi Overview

The Suzuki Kizashi line of sporty sedans compete well against the Honda Accord, Toyota Camry, Ford Fusion, Nissan Altima, and Mazda 6.Kizashi ranked tops in the 2012 J.D.Power & Associates APEAL study.It was judged Best Sedan in AutoPacific's Vehicle Satisfaction Awards.And we liked it, as well.

All-wheel drive is available, giving the Kizashi good all-weather capability.Called i-AWD, it's a sophisticated system that can be turned on and off so that you can use front-wheel drive on dry pavement for better fuel efficiency.

All Suzuki Kizashi models come with a sporty 2.4-liter aluminum four-cylinder with variable valve timing that makes 185 or 180 horsepower, depending on whether it's mated to the 6-speed manual transmission or Continuously Variable Transaxle.The CVT operates automatically or can be shifted through six steps using paddles on the steering wheel.

Fuel economy is an EPA-rated 23/31 mpg City/Highway when equipped with front-wheel drive and the CVT, or 23/30 mpg with all-wheel drive.

The balance between ride quality and handling is excellent.The MacPherson strut front and multi-link rear suspensions deliver good handling for hard driving, including on a race track, and a nicely damped ride over rough roads.Much of the credit for this balance goes to the rigid chassis.The brakes we found to be pitch perfect, also.

Kizashi looks elegant and sporty, with lovely lines that look a bit like Audi and Lexus.No overachieving swoops or flares, no gratuitous chrome trying to grab your attention.The Kizashi GTS and Kizashi SLS feature special Sport bodywork, including a more muscular front fascia and lower grille, side sill extensions, spoiler on the trunk lid, and 18-inch alloy wheels.The crossed mesh grille is titanium colored.

Interior materials are high quality, especially the sport seats that come standard.The layout of the controls and instruments is clean.These cars come well equipped, including climate control vents for the rear seat.Sport models get special steering wheels, and the SLS Sport gets contrasting stitching on its leather seats.

Kizashi comes with no less than eight airbags.Advanced stability control using the ABS comes standard.Suzuki says the Kizashi has surpassed the federal government's 2014 standards for side pole impact and offset front collision.
