The Kizashi is a nice balance of sport and practicality. It has an intuitive and fast brake system, nice sturdy construction, push to start, and sleek look in/out. The acceleration could be more powerful. I live in a city full of hills and sometimes the car just doesn't fly through them, but the ride is solid. Low interior noise, comfortable seating both in front and back, and good gas mileage. Ipod dock is a little poor and would of preferred an aux jack for easy mp3 access. I love the dash and beautiful red back lighting on the stereo. This car doesn't read high end luxury, but its a strong contender to beat Honda Accord and VW Passat.
The dash has a very pleasant layout and the car has some smart touches like leather steering wheel and memory foam seats. Ipod deck is nice, but it won't pair with my Droid X which is disappointing, but you if you have the bluetooth connectivity in your model then you wont have a problem.
Needs a little more power in stop and go traffic. The ride tends to be rougher going up steep hills and accelerating in heavy traffic. Aux jack for the stereo. The ability to unlock all doors when pushing driver side door lock.
