Consumer Guide




EPA fuel economy ratings range from 20 to 23 mpg in the city and 29 to 31 mpg on the highway. That's not very impressive, and these numbers fall short of those in a number of four-cylinder mid-size sedans.

In a Kizashi with the six-speed manual, TheCarConnection.com observed 27 miles per gallon over more than 150 miles of varied driving, much of it quite spirited. We saw 23 mpg in a mix of driving, in both a manual-transmission Kizashi Sport and a CVT- and all-wheel-drive-equipped Kizashi S.

The fuel economy figures (especially those official EPA estimates) are lower than expected, especially considering that the Kizashi isn't geared particularly low, and it has a lower curb weight than virtually all mid-size sedans.

Conclusion: The 2011 Suzuki Kizashi is a little disappointing here, with lower fuel-economy figures than a number of larger 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.
