TCC’s Bottom Line
If you're looking for a sophisticated, well-equipped sporty sedan that's a lot of car for the money, you should definitely check out the 2012 Suzuki Kizashi. With the 2012 Focus, Ford shows that small cars don't have to feel so banal, with charismatic compacts that are more satisfying to drive, more luxurious, and better-equipped.
