Benefits of Driving a 2010 Suzuki Kizashi Sedan
The 2010 Suzuki Kizashi is an all-new mid-sized sedan that takes direct aim at the market-dominating Honda Accord, Toyota Camry, Volkswagen Jetta and Nissan Altima. It's well suited for those looking for performance in a family sedan and it's a complete departure from Suzuki's past, featuring both European-inspired handling and design. With prices starting at $19,734 for the base S model, it's an affordable and capable alternative that Suzuki hopes will change the company's worldwide market share, starting in the U.S.
What's new for 2010?
The Suzuki Kizashi is all-new for 2010 and represents a fundamental shift from Suzuki's past appliance-like lineup. It's significantly different throughout with a European-styled interior and inspired handling characteristics and standard features include front-wheel-drive, disc brakes and front and side curtain airbags. A 2.4L inline four is the only engine option, mated to either a 6-speed manual or CVT automatic. All-wheel-drive is optional.
- Numerous standard features, excellent overall handling, available all-wheel drive, good value for the dollar.
The all-new Suzuki Kizashi comes in four trim levels: S, SE, GTS and SLS. All are fitted with a 2.4L inline four that features twin balance shafts and variable intake valve timing, producing 185 horsepower and 170 pound-feet of torque. With the exception of the SE, all are available with either a 6-speed manual transmission or a CVT automatic. Suzuki expects the SE to be its top seller and it's only available with the CVT. An available all-wheel-drive system features a clutch-pack-type center differential that can be run in 2-wheel-drive mode to help save fuel and is only offered with the CVT.
