Suzuki Kizashi (12-13)

Summary

5 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
Like to stand out from the crowd and dont need a badge to do it!

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
Love the look and the spec. As my neighbour said 'it looks the part'.

Would you buy this car again and why?
As long as I didnt need the economy of a diesel, then yes I would!

What are you likely to buy next?
As work may take me further afield I may need a diesel next and sadly there isnt a Diesel Kizashi. Possibly new Leon or V40.

Buying experience

5 out of 5

Type of dealer you bought from?
Didn't buy from a dealer

Did you buy this car new?
Used

What price did you pay?
£13,999

When did you buy the car?
September 2013

Did you get a good deal and why?
Vehicle was 8months old with 1,700miles on the clock and only £14k. Massive reduction on brand new Kizashi which is over £20k.

Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
Stood out from the crowd when surrounded by BMW's and a lot of car for the money. Great spec and great to drive.

What was the dealer like?
Bought from car supermarket. They struggled over 3weeks to get a new key coded which took 20mins at my local Suzuki. As with all car supermarkets there is pro's and con's but at the time they couldnt be beaten on price.

Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
On the motorway drives like a motorway cruiser. Little effort needed on the hills of the M62. Round town its actually very nimble for a big car. Great grip and composure on corners and plenty of grunt that will satisfy most drivers. Laid back drive using the CVT auto and a sporty beast using the paddle shifts.

What's it like to park?
Pretty easy for a biggish car. Large wing mirrors make seeing down the flanks easy but with a high bootline it makes seeing whats right behind you a bit trickier but the parking sensors help you out there.

Living with it

5 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
Nothing yet. Really good build quality.

What's most practical about your car?
Good size boot and huge wing mirrors, great visibility in them when reversing.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Paddle Shifts. Cars a completely different beast when in 'manual' mode. Quick gear changes meaning no loss in power. If I could have a second favourite then the 4WD would be up there!
