    EDUCATIA.INFO's editors have driven the new Suzuki Kizashi on a variety of roads and even on the racetrack, and they have.

    The Suzuki Kizashi ranking is based on its score within the Affordable Midsize Cars category. Currently the Suzuki Kizashi has a.

    It executes none of the concept cars style. Say, when driving one of the curvier sections of the Pennsylvania turnpike, where the Jersey barrier comes uncomfortably close to the side of the car. To me, the platform looks like the Mitsu Lancer slightly epanded. I requested a Kizashi, and this is what Suzuki provided.

    Suzuki Kizashi - Wikipedia

    The dominant Japanese car companies remain uncomfortable with their nationality, doing their best to seem somehow American lest they provoke a political backlash. Some of the details are nicely done, such as the Lexus-like exhaust outlets. And the proportions are athletically tight.

    I suppose we should be thankful that the new corporate front end introduced with the XL7 went no further than the XL7. But anonymous soap bars are so mids, and something about this car should say Suzuki aside from the oversized S on the grille. The interior is no more Japanese than the exterior. But, for a car priced in the mids, the Kizashi has an exceedingly well-appointed interior. Door pulls are the first thing you touch inside a car, and you grab them every time you get in.

    Yet these are rarely fully upholstered, even in premium brand luxury sedans. Well, the Kizashi has them, along with luxuriously upholstered upper door panels. Everything that could possibly be backlit is backlit, down to the hood release and shift paddles. A third oversight, and easily the most annoying: I avoided using both on the highway to avoid the green lights. Especially nice to see at this price: Some bits missed in their absence: Yes, my well-ventilated kids complained when they could not read at night.

    The firm front buckets fit the bill, with side bolsters that for once actually provide even better lateral support than their appearance suggests they will. Size-wise, the Kizashi falls between a compact and a midsize. This translates to a rear seat that is just large enough for the average adult. Those six-feet and up will wish for a true midsize. With the six-speed manual and front-wheel-drive it might serve fairly well. With the four-wheel-drive and the CVT it mandates, not even close.

    GM uses active noise cancellation to make a similarly-sized four sound refined in the new Equinox. The Kizashi needs some of that. As is, the 2. Acceleration from zero to 20 is downright sluggish. At that point the engine hits its stride and pulls strongly well, as strongly as it can until the CVT decides to reel it in. Or at least trying to. To prevent this, make frequent use of the shift paddles to hold the transmission in one of six predefined ratios.

    The CVT clearly wants to maximize fuel economy. Well, in moderate suburban driving the trip computer reported My horsepower V8 Lexus with , miles approaches 20 on the same routes.

    On the highway the Kizashi struggled to crack 26 even with the 4WD turned off. The in-between size and low-profile 18s on the two top trim levels should pay dividends here. Say, when driving one of the curvier sections of the Pennsylvania turnpike, where the Jersey barrier comes uncomfortably close to the side of the car.

    At speed the front end becomes a touch floaty, the steering cuts back on communication, and bumps do some of the steering. The ride similarly lacks that final bit of polish, failing to absorb the occasional impact and at times turning jittery, especially for those in the back seat.

    So, technically speaking, it has a four-wheel-drive system. The only clear benefit: But with 4WD engaged the handling is actually less predictable and thus less safe, with a tendency to oversteer not otherwise present.
