The new mid size 4-door sedan, the 2012 Suzuki Kizashi is bold, sporty and stylish. From the inside out, this vehicle delivers one of the best value in the sedan category of its class.  And as it means in Japanese "something great is coming" you will discover it shortly after you slide into the driver seat and start the engine and drive. As a matter of fact, the more I drove the Kizaski the more I liked it.

Powered by 2.4 litter DOHC-J engine,  230 torque, and All Wheel Drive (AWD) system with a driver mode that allow you to save gas, these features make this sedan very appealing. This vehicle offers a great ride and performance in a very upscale European style sport sedan.

Some of the features in the Kizashi include a six-speed manual, or performance tuned CVT with steering wheel paddle shifters, push-button start, dual-zone climate control, a nine-speaker audio system, power windows, doors and mirrors, and ambient foot-well lighting.  These features will make you "fall in love " with this  gem, who is will be wining some awards as the previous 2010  and 2011models won for "Vehicle Satisfaction Awards" and "Best Buy."

With some of the best accident-safety features in the industry such as Electronic brake-force distribution (EBD), an Anti-lock Brake System (ABS), and an advanced electronic stability control program (ESP),  and eight standard airbags, including rear seat side airbags and ample use of ultra-high-strength steel throughout the vehicle to help protect passengers, making the Kizashi very desirable with these wide range of safety features.

The sporty and luxurious cabin has many advanced features  with enough headroom and legroom inside. A tilted leather steering wheel equipped with cruise control, and a stylist dashboard with AC vents, the latest audio system to include 7 speakers, instrument panel, CD/MP3 player, integrated bluetooth with audio streaming, wireless mobile phone integration, and USB/iPod input port, making this sedan to be on the desirable list for media features.

The driver's seat is 10 adjustable positions with the memory capacity for three positions, and it is electronically powered assuring the driver comfortable ride. The front seats are very spacious due to longer wheelbase, but the back seats are not as spacious as the ones upfront.

So with technology-packed features, sporty stylish look, and affordable price that starts at about $18,000, you are looking at the best sedan on the market, and you will not find anything better then the Suzuki Kizashi which is most likely the best model for you.
