SAFETY | 8 out of 10

Expert Quotes:

'Good,' frontal impact; 'good,' side impact; 'good,' rear impact; 'acceptable,' roof strength
IIHS

Not yet rated
NHTSA




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.

Conclusion

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

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.
