SEE LOCAL CLASSIFIEDS

Although the 2010 Suzuki Kizashi hasn't yet been crash-tested, it comes with a class-leading eight airbags, including front side airbags, side curtain bags, and rear side bags. Anti-lock brakes and electronic stability control are also standard across the model line. In Kizashi models with AWD, the stability control system can momentarily send more power to the rear wheels and help counter a skid, whether or not AWD is currently engaged. The stability control system also enables stronger steering boost in these situations for quick countersteering.

Suzuki typically offers few if any options on its U.S. vehicles, instead including a strong list of standard features, and the 2010 Suzuki Kizashi takes that to a new level. It's offered in four different trims. The base S includes a surprisingly high level of standard-feature content, such as push-button start, sport seats, dual-zone climate control, and steering-wheel audio controls. Next up is the SE, which adds a power memory driver seat, cruise control, 17-inch alloys, and upgraded trim. A 425-watt Rockford Fosgate sound system, Bluetooth hands-free calling, Bluetooth audio streaming, fog lamps, a moonroof, and 18-inch wheels are all part of the GTS, while the top-of-the-line SLS includes leather upholstery, heated front seats, rain-sensor wipers, rear parking sensors, heated mirrors, an auto-dimming mirror, and a garage-door opener. Later in the model year, an in-dash nav system will be optional.

The 2010 Kizashi is made by Suzuki in Japan and is covered by a seven-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty, with three years or 36,000 miles for the vehicle warranty and roadside assistance.

Other Choices:

  • Ford Fusion
  • Mazda Mazda6
  • Nissan Altima
  • Subaru Legacy
  • Kia Forte

The Bottom Line:

If you can get past the Suzuki badge itself, you'll be pleasantly surprised. The 2010 Suzuki Kizashi is sophisticated, well designed, and a lot more fun to drive than most other four-cylinder mid-size sedans.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
