2011 Suzuki Kizashi Named a Consumers Digest Best Buy

BREA, Calif.  (Profitable.com)  Highly-acclaimed for its sporty yet comfortable handling, near-luxury exterior and interior design without the premium price point and backed by America’s #1 Warranty, the 2011 Suzuki Kizashi was named a Consumers Digest Best Buy, adding to the sport sedan’s impressive collection of accolades since its introduction last year.

2011 Suzuki Kizashi Named a Consumers Digest Best BuyThe Best Buy designation, which is based on behind-the-wheel assessment, comfort, ergonomics, styling and amenities, safety ratings, warranty, ownership costs and price, reflects Consumers Digest’s view of which 2011 vehicles offer exceptional value for the money.

More than 250 total 2011 models were reviewed in 12 categories before the 2011 Consumers Digest Best Buys were announced on Nov. 1. The Kizashi, which was described as a “home run” and a “family car for the sports-car addict,” was named a Consumers Digest Best Buy in the “Family Cars” category.

“We are extremely pleased with the recognition of the 2011 Kizashi as a Consumers Digest,” said Koichi Suzuki, executive vice president of American Suzuki Automotive Operations. “This acknowledgment from Consumers Digest shines a spotlight on the Kizashi as a safe, reliable and affordable vehicle for U.S. consumers seeking a stylish alternative to the ordinary family sedan.”  

The Kizashi, Suzuki’s first available all-wheel-drive sport sedan, delivers a unique blend of dynamic performance attributes, premium design aesthetics and craftsmanship yet to be experienced in the high-volume midsize category. The Kizashi redefines the traditional performance sedan and moves the Suzuki brand upscale without abandoning Suzuki’s traditional emphasis on content and value. Furthermore, its active and energetic identity, a core component of the Suzuki brand DNA, is augmented by the vehicle’s overall mission to provide strong yet refined street performance.
