So my parents are in the market for a new car and have asked me for my advice. They're looking for a sedan that's luxurious-feeling with all the bells and whistles but affordable. They asked me about the Altima, the Buick Regal and the Accord. And I felt like I was letting them in on a secret when I told them about the Hyundai Sonata. But after driving our 2010 Suzuki Kizashi all this weekend, I'd wholeheartedly recommend it to them, too.
It's comfortable, sounds refined, shifts smoothly, has nice quality interior, comes with the amenities they like and is affordable. Plus, a majority of the editors here love it.
I even spec'd out the one my folks should get: the 2010 Suzuki Kizashi SLS with the "Navigation with Rear Vision Camera" option. There's even an $1,000 rebate! The total price would be $25,613.
