Suzuki Kizashi

Suzuki Kizashi
 
It is said to be a D-segment sedan (Toyota Camry), but size wise it's in the middle of a C-segment sedan (Toyota Altis) and a D-segment sedan. With a length of 4650mm, width of 1820mm and a wheelbase of 2700mm, the Kizashi tucked itself between an Altis and a Camry in terms of size. I never understand why Suzuki want to build a car oddly sized.

Although the CBU Kizashi comes with two trim levels, SDLX and Sport, both trims get the same powerplant. A 2.4litre, four-cylinder engine with 176bhp and 230Nm of torque at 4,000 rpm, mated to a 6-speed CVT. 0-100km/h in 8.8seconds! Both trims receive generous amount of kits such as ESP, 6 airbags, hill start assist, auto dimming rear view mirror, auto cruise control, leather seats, push-start button with keyless entry, headlamps washer, auto levelling HID etc.

The weird bump of the bootlid doesn't stop the Kizashi from looking butt-tiful...


While the SDLX wears 17-inch alloys, the Sport wears 18-inch alloys. The Sport variant (the white car above) has extras like sport suspension which lowers the ground clearance by 10mm, chrome finishing around the exterior and sportier finishing on the gear knob and white stitching on the seats. The SDLX costs RM147,888 while the Sport costs RM158,188 OTR with insurance.
Very cosy cabin!


I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw the Kizashi in One Utama Shopping Centre on the very day it was launched to the public! Frankly I have to say the cabin surprised me with its plushiness and quality. Everything felt solid and on par with D-segment leaders, kudos to Suzuki.
