The Suzuki Kizashi is a small sports sedan that offers more standard equipment than its competitors, including safety features, at a slightly lower price. The S and SE models offer much, and for more money there are Sport models, plus optional all-wheel-drive. The engineering is excellent, with a solid four-cylinder engine, transmission choices including a high-tech CVT with paddle shifters, an exceptionally rigid chassis, tuned suspension offering a compliant ride and great cornering, and precise brakes.
For 2011, the Kizashi Sport lineup is expanded by GTS and Sport SLS models. Both feature special sporty 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.
