Expert Quotes:

The Kizashi actually turns heads, and that's rare in the midsize sedan class
Cars.com

Aside from the name, the Kizashi has “anonymous” written all over it.
Car and Driver

None of the elements are particularly bad looking, but they aren't boat-floating either.
Autoblog

subtly aggressive styling and attractive interior design
Popular Mechanics

The wheels and rocker panels spruce up the rather sedate base car, and the black interior really does cast a slight attitude.
AutoWeek

The Suzuki Kizashi has been around for several years, and while we wouldn't call its look or its styling particularly fresh, it's handsome and nicely detailed--albeit a little conservative on the outside.

At about 183 inches long, the 2013 Kizashi is more than a foot shorter than most mid-size sedans, yet it remains on the upper edge of what might be considered a compact. That leaves it pretty much in line with the Chevrolet Cruze or VW Jetta. Up next to those models, the Kizashi strikes some great proportions and is a handsome, if restrained sedan. With its traditional sedan profile with a dressed-up look and sportier stance, the Kizashi predictably has subtle character lines that follow from the grille and headlights, through the hood, to the beltline; and smooth, uncreased flanks are contoured just enough to avoid being called slab-sided.

The Kizashi Sport trim brings a lowered suspension and flashy alloy wheels, giving the Kizashi a more hunkered-down performance look particularly from the back.

Compared to most other value-conscious four-cylinder compact or mid-size sedans, the Kizashi stands out for incorporating a little more sports-car swoopiness and excitement into the instrument panel and interior trim. It would be a stretch to call it a cockpit-style layout, but the design's deeply hooded gauges and full-length console bring a sportier feel, while the two-tier instrument panel design (with central vents built into the upper tier) and just the right amount of chrome leave it feeling somewhat upscale inside. That's further accented by quality materials plus stylish, well-bolstered sport seats done in ventilated leather or a sturdy coarse cloth.

 

Conclusion

The 2013 Suzuki Kizashi has a look that's sporty, yet at the same time conservative, elegant, and finely detailed.

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.
