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.
