the real story here is how much car you get if you're willing to forgo stuff like power seats and backup sensors
Popular Mechanics


The base-level version of the 2013 Suzuki Kizashi, at less than $20,000 including destination, is quite a value, as it includes features like keyless entry, dual-zone climate control, push-button start, sport seats, and steering-wheel audio controls--all things that aren't usually found in the least-expensive model, let alone as standard equipment. 

The Kizashi remains offered in S, SE, GTS Sport, and SLS Sport models, and from the S you move up to an equipment set that, read from a list, looks like it should belong to something with a luxury badge. The SE adds a power memory driver seat, cruise control, 17-inch alloys, and upgraded trim, while the GTS gets a 425-watt Rockford Fosgate sound system, fog lamps, a moonroof, and 18-inch wheels. And at the top of the line, the SLS includes leather upholstery, heated front seats, rain-sensor wipers, rear parking sensors, heated mirrors, an auto-dimming mirror, and a garage-door opener.

If you opt for either the GTS Sport or the SLS Sport, you get a lowered suspension that rides 10 mm lower (but not really any harsher) than the base setup. These models also include a flashier, lightweight wheel design, a trunk spoiler, body sill extensions, a more aggressive front fascia, and a bolder, 'aero' look. Sport models also get snug, leather-trimmed sport seats with contrast stitching, in a different design with more side bolstering.

For 2013, the optional navigation system is now part of a fully embedded infotainment unit that includes a backup camera, real-time traffic, Bluetooth streaming audio, and integrated voice commands.

 

Conclusion

The 2013 Suzuki wraps in a lot of features for the money--especially at the base level.

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.
