New Suzuki Kizashi in Malaysia!

The Suzuki Kizashi, looking very much alike the Toyota Mark X from the rear has finally been launched in Malaysia! Competing against the VW Passat, Peugeot 508, Kia K5 and Ford Mondeo, this car has a tough competition ahead. Despite being smaller than its competitors, the Suzuki Kizashi offers a very proportionate body; the front fender and tyre distance reminds me of an european car like BMW. This pose is quite sporty. 
Looks quite good! (IMHO)
Priced at 147,888 for the SDLX trim, it comes with 6 airbags, traction control, ESP, leather seats, 10 way electric memory seats, auto cruise, keyless entry and push start, ABS, EBD, BA and Hill Assist, auto folding side mirrors, auto leveling HID lights, auto dimming rear view mirror, and 17 inch alloy rims.Quite well featured don't you think? 

The sport variant is priced at RM158,188 and comes with 18 inch rims, sport suspension, different front bumper, and chrome exterior trim. The interior is also complemented by a sporty leather gear knob and silver stitch highlights.

Rear reminds me of a Toyota Mark X

Conclusion? Overall the car looks quite promising, performs quite well and should be anyone's list that is looking for a sporty sedan. 0-100 in 8.8 seconds isn't too shabby at all!
