The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

8.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
Suzuki might be off the radar for some shoppers, but the 2013 Kizashi offers a lot of sophistication and value for the money. The 2013 Kia Optima adds generous dashes of style and sophistication to what's otherwise a sensible, frugal, and spacious mid-size sedan.
