2010 Suzuki Kizashi GTS: Sweating the Details

Sometimes you'll have a car that's basically very competent -- good performance, smooth ride, respectable handling. And then the manufacturer drops the ball on some of the small things (no telescoping wheel, maybe excessive road noise). Not so with the Kizashi. At first blush I was impressed by this Suzook's refined, willing engine and well-balanced chassis. Then I noticed a few of the small touches that make a difference in everyday driving.

Take the sun visors extenders; not all cars have them and most that do don't stretch out nearly as much as these ones. They worked great when the sun would've otherwise zapped me by sneaking in that space between the standard visors. And there is the trunk lid that is lined (unlike say, an Accord LX's) and has a pull-down handle which makes it easier and cleaner (no need to touch the outer lid) to close.
