Features of the Kizashi

Bold and sporty styling

•Contours that include taut shoulder lines running from the headlamps to the rear combination lamps express power befitting a car of the Kizashi`s class.
•The rear deck is contoured for both aerodynamics and aesthetics.
Refined interior design

•Features including an exquisitely designed centre console and satin-finish chrome-plated details convey both sportiness and craftsmanship in the cabin.

High performance

•The J24B 2.4-litre engine delivers maximum output of 138kW (188PS) and maximum torque of 230N•m (23.5kg•m). A variable intake system and dual mufflers contribute to superior intake and exhaust efficiency.
•Where four-wheel drive is specified, it`s delivered by an intelligent all-wheel drive (i-AWD) system that realizes smooth off-the-line acceleration and great cornering performance. Plus, a synergetic vehicle dynamics control system acts on the i-AWD system and electric power steering system to suppress body movements and keep the car stable. (Where two-wheel drive is specified, the synergetic vehicle dynamics control system acts only on the power-steering system.)

Outstanding quietness

•Sound-absorbing and -insulating measures throughout the body promote quietness while allowing the body to be optimally light.
•High-capacity dual exhaust silencers suppress unpleasant low-frequency booming noise and realize a pleasant exhaust note.
