2010 Suzuki Kizashi Long-Term Road Test

2010 Suzuki Kizashi GTS - A Great Long Driver

March 26, 2010


To get more distance off the tee I bought a long-shafted driver which I usually need to take out of my golf bag and put in diagonally to fit in a car trunk. Not the 2010 Suzuki Kizashi GTS, which not only swallowed the whole bag but the wide opening made it easy to slide it in place.

The clubs were along for the 75-mile drive to San Diego for a golf tournament. I was looking forward to seeing what the car felt like on the open road and found it to be very stable at high speeds. The cabin is well insulated both for noise and vibration. And on the freeway, the visibility for lane changing is excellent.

I was hoping to crack 30 mpg on the open road. The fuel economy gauge was reading 30 mpg but when I filled up and did it the old fashioned way, I got only 28.2 mpg over about 190 miles of driving.
