2011 Suzuki Kizashi Safety

8.0
On Safety
The Kizashi hasn't yet been tested by the federal government, but the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has put it through its battery of tests. Overall, the Kizashi gets mostly top 'good' ratings—in all but roof strength, where it achieves 'acceptable.'

All the usual—and expected, for a sporty model—safety equipment comes standard in the 2011 Kizashi. Anti-lock brakes and electronic stability control are included across the model line, and the entire Kizashi model line comes with a class-leading eight airbags, including front side airbags, side curtain bags, and rear side bags.

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.

In most respects, the 2011 Suzuki Kizashi offers top-notch safety.
