Expert Quotes:

Styling is conservative by the uninhibited standards of Suzuki’s three Kizashi concepts, but it’s far from wallflower.

reminds us a lot of the current VW Jetta, and there's nothing wrong with that

looks like an angrier VW Jetta

The 2010 Kizashi is the all-new flagship of Suzuki's U.S. lineup, and while it's based on several very daring concept-car designs of the same name, the production Kizashi has ended up quite conservative.

MotorWeek says that the 2010 Suzuki Kizashi "certainly looks great," and sees "design elements from all three of its conceptual namesakes." Car and Driver agrees, remarkng, "Styling is conservative by the uninhibited standards of Suzuki’s three Kizashi concepts, but it’s far from wallflower." Popular Mechanics likes it, commenting, "With an exterior design blending Japanese and European flavors, the Kizashi stands out in a largely bland crowd."

Several sources see similarities to other vehicles up close, in the details, with the Volkswagen Jetta coming up more than once. "In a market crowded by vehicles dull in appearance, it at least looks like an angrier VW Jetta in red," says Jalopnik, while MotorWeek asserts, "The split-level grille and twin lower intakes reminds us a lot of the current VW Jetta, and there's nothing wrong with that.

The 2010 Suzuki Kizashi feels upscale and stylish inside—and far from the Spartan interiors of some other four-cylinder mid-size sedans. MotorWeek calls the interior "airy and upscale," notes the soft-touch dash, and says that its "sharply-drawn lines are intended to mimic the precision of a Samurai's blade." Popular Mechanics deems the interior appearance "richer and more tasteful than what one usually finds in the midsize category."

Conclusion

The 2010 Suzuki Kizashi doesn't break the mold in any way, but its interior feels especially upscale and stylish.

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.
