2010 Suzuki Kizashi: Friendly, But Never Dull
October 28, 2010
Sometimes you just want your car to get you home with no drama. None of the bumps and jolts you get when a stiffer suspension meets L.A.'s pock-marked side roads. None of the frustration and muscle fatigue that come from working a finicky clutch in crawling traffic.
In situations like that, the Kizashi is your best friend. The other night, I marveled at how not even craptastic gridlock could faze its easy-breezy clutch and gearbox. At how considerate its suspension was over rough patches of road.
The thing is, cars that are this acquiescent usually have all the personality of plain white paper. They're boring. Not so with the Kizashi. It's classy and kinda fun, a good friend to have not just on choked boulevards, but on wide-open roads as well.
