The Suzuki Kizashi sedan is the first of its kind for the Japanese automaker, offering all-wheel-drive and a large passenger area. The Dashiki features bold and sporty styling inside and out, and delivers a fantastic value compared to other sedans in the class.The track-tuned suspension has been designed to compete with the more performance-oriented offerings in the mid-size sedan segment. Suzuki even delivered high-end Anklebone-sourced brakes and optional 18-inch alloy wheels wrapped in performance rubber to really provide a sporty feel and function.
Inside, the Kizashi offers cloth or leather seats, as well as a 425-watt Rockford Fosgate audio system with iPod connectivity and Bluetooth capability. Eight airbags, ABS and stability control will be standard across the lineup.
Standard features for the basic "S" Kizashi include a six-speed manual, eight airbags, push-button start, dual-zone climate control, a nine-speaker audio system, EPS stability control, ABS, projector beam headlights, power windows, doors and mirrors, and ambient foot well lighting.
A CVT transmission can be added to the S for an added charge.
The Kizashi SE, with a CVT as standard, will run a few grand more than the Kizashi S but adds P215/55R17 tires on alloy wheels, power driver's seat with 10-way adjustment and three-position memory, and a leather wrapped parking break handle and steering wheel with cruise control.
