Although Suzuki offered larger vehicles made by Daewoo in the past, the Kizashi is their first mid-size car designed and built in house. Marketed as a mid-size, the Kizashi is on the smaller side of the segment with dimensions closer to the Honda Civic than the Toyota Camry. A 180-bhp, 2.4l four-cylinder engine is standard on all models. Most models are equipped with a CVT, but a six-speed manual is available. One item that sets the Kizashi apart is the availability of all-wheel-drive. Most of the sales leaders only offer front-wheel-drive. Pricing ranges from $19,000 for the base S model to $28,000 for a fully equipped SLS model.
