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.

What's new for 2012?

For 2012, Suzuki has introduced only minor changes to the Kizashi. In SE trim, a leather seat package is available, as is a Crimson Red Metallic exterior color.

Model Review

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.

Safety Ratings help

What do the Safety Ratings mean?

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) performs independent crash testing of new vehicles and then assigns them a score based on their performance. The overall crash test rating is based on how a vehicle performs in the following tests:

Driver Crash Grade:

Measures the chance of a serious injury to a crash test dummy that is placed in a driver's seat and driven into a fixed barrier at 35 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less chance of injury.

Passenger Crash Grade:

Similar to the driver crash grade, only now the focus is on the passenger.

Rollover Resistance:

Simulates an emergency lane change to measure the likelihood of a vehicle rolling over. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less risk of rollover.

Side Impact Crash Test - Front:

Focuses on the front side of a vehicle. It simulates crashes that can occur in intersections by striking a 3,015-pound weight against the side of a vehicle at 38.5 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 5 percent or less chance of injury.

Side Impact Crash Test - Rear:

Similar to the front side impact test only now the focus is on the rear passenger.
