Go Zooming With The 2010 Suzuki SX4 Sportback

When the Suzuki SX4 appeared on the marketplace a couple of years ago, I was smitten. Here was a petite hatch with all-wheel drive that behaved like it was bigger and more expensive than it was. I drove one (with manual transmission and no cruise control) from the Los Angeles area to Las Vegas...Read More»

Driven: 2010 Suzuki Kizashi

For daily-driving needs, the 2010 Suzuki Kizashi feels right-sized in many ways.
