2010 Suzuki Kizashi Sedan is released
Kizashi Sedan is the newest creation from Suzuki. This premium sport sedan is targeted to people, who want luxury car at normal price.
Kizashi is equipped with a 2.4-liter DOHC in-line four-cylinder engine delivering 185hp and 230Nm of torque. Usually the power is transmitted to the road through ordinary 6-speed manual gearbox, but there is an option for Kizashi to come out with automatic Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT).
Suzuki Kizashi is offered with next genaration i-AWD system combined with advanced electronic stability control system. All this guarantees perfect behaviour on every road and weather conditions.
Usually, the Asian cars aren't much safe, but Kizashi already meets 2014 crash standards. The car includes standard eight airbags, Electronic Stability Program (ESP), an anti-lock braking system with electronic brake-force distribution and a tire pressure monitoring system.
Kizashi is offered with three trim levels - S, SE and GTS.
S is the base version, which includes standard push button start, sport front seats, steering wheel audio controls, automatic dual-zone climate control with passenger rear vents, stability control, 8 airbags and integrated-chromed dual exhaust tips.
The next level is SE, which adds standard CVT transmission, 215/55-17 tires mounted on alloy wheels, a 10-way power driver seat with 3-position memory, cruise control and a leather-wrapped steering wheel, shift lever and parking brake lever to the S trim level.
The highest is GTS includes your choice of 6-speed manual or CVT transmissions with paddle shifters, a number of other extras: 235/45-18 tires on alloy wheels, one-touch moonroof, fog lights, a 425 watt Rockford Fosgate® audio system and integrated Bluetooth® hands-free calling and audio streaming. Kizashi's top-tier spec, the SLS, adds leather appointments to the interior, three-stage heated front seats, a four-way power passenger seat, Home Link®4 universal garage door opener, windshield wiper rain sensor and rear parking sensors. In addition, those focusing on where they've been will enjoy exterior heated mirrors and an automatic day-night mirror, while those focusing on where they're going benefit from automatic on/off headlamps.
Suzuki Kizashi's price starts just below $20,000 , which is perfect value for a premium sedan. A well equipped car with dual climate control, push-button start, a USB port, 17-inch alloy wheels, eight airbags and even AWD is around $22,000 to $24,000.
