Benefits of Driving a 2012 Suzuki Kizashi Sedan
The mid-sized 2012 Suzuki Kizashi 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 good direction for Suzuki, featuring both European-inspired handling and design. Suzuki offers a 100,000-mile/7-year powertrain limited warranty. Base prices range from the S front-wheel drive at $18,999 to the truly impressive SLS Sport at only $28,948, with a vast array of luxury features included.

The Suzuki Kizashi comes in four trim levels: S, SE, GTS Sport and SLS Sport. All are fitted with a 2.4L 4-cylinder engine 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 continuously variable transmission (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.
