LAVERTON, AUSTRALIA – May 21, 2010: Suzuki’s all new sports sedan, the Kizashi, continues to rack up the accolades with top honours in AutoPacific’s 14th annual Vehicle Satisfaction Awards in the United States.

Based on responses from over 42,000 new vehicle owners, the Kizashi registered the highest in overall satisfaction for all new purchased or leased vehicles sold. Its final score was 99 points above the industry average to place first not only in its segment but highest overall amongst all 2010 model year vehicles.

The AutoPacific award is an industry benchmark in measuring vehicle owner satisfaction. To perform well, vehicles must score high in 48 separate categories across the ownership experience.

“This is tremendous feedback from satisfied owners. The Kizashi continues the long Suzuki tradition of offering the highest levels of value and customer satisfaction,” said Suzuki Australia general manager Tony Devers.

“With its combination of stunning design, outstanding performance and high levels of safety, we are extremely confident of seeing similar levels of satisfaction here in Australia.

Devers said the Kizashi represents not only Suzuki’s first foray into the mid-sized car segment but also a car that is set to redefine the Suzuki brand globally.

“With a starting price of just $27,990 plus on roads, the Kizashi offers a new choice in value, quality and performance.”
