EXTERIOR

I have to confess to being a little reluctant to drive this car to a first date. Not that I really care what a stranger thinks about the car I drive, but I'm more concerned with how the car I drive makes me feel. Decidedly, while driving to a first date, I want to feel confident and sexy. I wouldn't think that driving a Suzuki would make me feel that way, but after a few more dates with the same fellow, he confessed that I looked extra adorable in the Kizashi. Can I keep it a little longer? I think a color other than "did-we-forget-to-paint-the-metal?" silver would also make a big impact on the aesthetic appeal.

Climbing in and out of the Kizashi for my little ones was a breeze thanks to its low step-in height. The trunk release, however, was a pain to figure out. There's a release button of the key fob, but it was touchy and didn't seem to work all the time. There's also a release button on the lower left side of the instrument panel, but that took me more than a week to find. This is a perfect example as to why you should actually read your car's owner's manual when you buy it. There's tons of trunk space in the Kizashi — enough room to hold three sets of golf clubs for our first golf lesson of the season.

The Kizashi has a 180-horsepower, 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine. With an EPA-estimated 23/30 mpg city/highway, we got quite a few trips to and from the golf course on just one tank of regular gas.
