For The Suzuki Kizashi is a generously equipped family saloon that gets four-wheel drive and a CVT automatic gearbox as standard. You’re unlikely to see another one.

Against The only engine on offer is a comparatively dirty and inefficient petrol, so running costs will be high. The ride is firm, and the Kizashi falls well short of the class leaders in terms of refinement and interior space.

Suzuki Kizashi Saloon
11 5stars

Unless you consider four-wheel drive a must, there are many rivals that are far better to drive and live with than the Suzuki Kizashi. If you need a 4x4 family car, then a Skoda Superb is a far better bet and will cost less to run, even if it’ll cost a bit more to buy.

Buyer's notes

Target Price team says:

It won’t take you long to spec your Suzuki Kizashi because Suzuki is offering just one version – a 2.4-litre petrol that comes with four-wheel drive and a continuously variable automatic transmission that you can override using steering wheel-mounted paddles.

The only thing you have to decide is which of the four colours you want and whether or not to add the optional touch-screen sat-nav system.

The Kizashi is covered by a three-year, 60,000-mile warranty and a 12-year anti-perforation warranty. Unfortunately, the servicing intervals are tiny by the standards of modern cars, at just 9000 miles.
