What feel special are the interiors. This car may not have the size of an Accord and legroom at the rear especially is nowhere near as good, but the Kizashi feels pretty comfortable and sophisticated in its own right.
The V-shaped dash has a smart design, the steering wheel is beautifully built and the cabin does have the ambience of a luxury car. There are plenty of shiny chrome bits, the sunken dials on the instrument panel look good and the doorpads are pretty substantial too, generously padded and detailed.
The dimpled leather seats are well constructed and both large and very supportive. There’s plenty of shoulder- and headroom at the front and features like powered front seats, seat memory and keyless go only add to the ‘feel good’ the cabin delivers.
What spoils the ambience of the insides are some carried-over Suzuki buttons, like those on the driver’s doorpad and others on the right of the steering wheel. Legroom at the rear is better than you expect – you are seated high and seat comfort in isolation is really quite good. But that’s not to say it’s perfect, for the seat squab is a bit short and the backrest slightly upright.
