SAFETY | 8 out of 10

Expert Quotes:

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

Not yet rated
NHTSA




Federal crash-test scores still haven't been given to the Kizashi, but reasonably strong IIHS crash-test scores and an especially strong list of standard safety features probably make the 2012 Kizashi one of the better picks among compact sedans.

In Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) testing, the Kizashi has earned top 'good' ratings in all but its roof-strength test ('acceptable').

Eight airbags are standard, including rear side bags, which still aren't common in this class. And in Kizashi models with AWD, the stability control system enables stronger steering boost for quick countersteering, and it can momentarily send more power to the rear wheels and help counter a skid, whether or not AWD is currently engaged.

Conclusion

The 2012 Suzuki Kizashi offers standard rear side bags, and quite strong safety ratings.

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.
