Although the 2010 Suzuki Kizashi hadn't yet been crash-tested at the time of writing, the safety outlook for this all-new sedan is very promising.
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. Anti-lock brakes and electronic stability control are standard across the model line as well. The entire Kizashi model line comes with a class-leading eight airbags, including front side airbags, side curtain bags, and rear side bags.
MotorTrend offers that the Kizashi "meets the newly mandatory Euro NCAP pole side-impact test" because it's a global model, while Popular Mechanics says that the Kizashi is "engineered to meet upcoming 2014 crash standards." That reviewer also points to the optional rear sonar parking aid and backup camera.
