2010 Suzuki Kizashi: Refined
June 09, 2010
I recently spent some time in the 2010 Audi A5 2.0T in preparation for an Edmunds test drive that I'll be writing on the car. Immediately after the A5 left, I was placed in our long-term Kizashi for the night.
I was expecting the Kizashi to feel like a huge step down after the A5; after all, one's a premium European coupe and the other's an affordably priced family hauler. Instead, I was struck by how refined the Kizashi is; it really does hold its own, even in comparison to a car like the Audi. Its ride is pleasant and well-balanced, and the feel of the switchgear in its cabin is comparable to that experienced in entry-level luxury models. Its cabin looks polished and elegant, as does its sheet metal. The Suzy is fast becoming one of my favorites in the midsize family sedan segment.
