The Suzuki Kizashi offers more standard equipment than its competitors at a slightly lower price. The engineering is excellent, with a solid engine, an exceptionally rigid chassis, tuned suspension offering a compliant ride and great cornering, and precise brakes.

Well-built, fun, good-looking, comfortable, and rare! The next time you’re in the market for a midsize sedan, make the sad little Kizashi smile by giving it a closer look. Drive one and it’ll most likely make you smile as well.

The Kizashi is the best car yet to come to the United States wearing a Suzuki badge. The exterior is round and solid in homage to European small-car design.

If all a car had to do to succeed in the market was be a good car, the Kizashi would be in excellent shape. For what it is, the Kizashi is priced reasonably well, though Suzuki might be wise to lower the price as an incentive for buyers.
