Suzuki Kizashi / Reviews / 2010 Suzuki Kizashi review 2

An all-new model, the 2010 Suzuki Kizashi (ke-ZAH-shee) is a midsize car the manufacturer characterizes as a sport sedan. Four years have passed since Suzuki discontinued its previous midsize sedan, the Verona, which simply didn't compete in a class crowded with many models — some of which boast decades-long histories and excellent reputations, like the Honda Accord and Toyota Camry. With the resurgence of Chevrolet's Malibu and Ford's Fusion, the climate is now more cutthroat than ever, but the Kizashi stands a chance thanks to a low entry price, impressive interior quality and affordable, efficient all-wheel drive.

The Kizashi comes in four trim levels — S, SE, GTS and SLS — ranging from $18,999 for a manual with front-wheel drive to $26,749 for a loaded near-luxury model with automatic and all-wheel drive. Our test Kizashi GTS automatic with all-wheel drive was $25,709, including floormats and a destination charge.
