Notable features on this new midsize sedan include standard all-wheel drive and a standard six-speed manual transmission to go along with the all-new four-cylinder engine. A continuously variable transmission will be optional and Suzuki also announced plans to release a hybrid version of the Kizashi.
In terms of size, the Kizashi is slightly smaller than a Hyundai Sonata. A wheelbase of 106.3 inches means the Kizashi is about 3 inches short of a Toyota Camry. The Suzuki is also slightly shorter in overall length, but nearly as wide as most of the sedans in the class.
Interior features will include a standard keyless ignition, Bluetooth connectivity and an optional 425 Rockford Fosgate audio system. Sales are expected to begin late this year.
