2011 SUZUKI KIZASHI EARNS HIGHEST SATISFACTION RATING IN J.D. POWER STUDYKizashi awarded top spot among 2011 midsize cars in J.D. Power and Associates' annual APEAL StudySM
Since its North American debut, the Suzuki Kizashi midsize sports sedan has earned significant praise from automotive media and consumers alike. With the release of J.D. Power and Associates' 2011 Automotive Performance Execution and Layout (APEAL) Study, that praise has been validated once again wîth the 2011 Suzuki Kizashi registering the highest total overall score among all new purchased or leased midsize cars sold in the Únited States. The Kizashi outperformed 13 other midsize competitors to earn the top award in the category, including earning the top spot in more than half of the individual category ratings. The median buyer profile also averaged 10 years younger and wîth higher income than the midsize §egmènt average. This recognition follows other consumer satisfaction awards including the announcement earlier this summer that the Kizashi topped AutoPacific's annual Vehicle Satisfaction Awards (VSA) for the second consecutive year.
'This is another great accomplishment for Suzuki, the combination of the J.D. Power and Associates' APEAL Award and the recent AutoPacific Vehicle Satisfaction Award affirms that Suzuki is bringing passion back into the midsize sedan category,' said Steve Younan, director of product planning and marketing, American Suzuki. 'We are proud of the Kizashi and this recognition from our owners is a strong testament to the hard work that our engineers, designers, and planners have put into this exciting vehicle.'
With sales up more than 55% this year, the Kizashi is Suzuki's most significant entry to date in the competitive midsize sedan §egmènt. With its Autobahn-tuned suspension, unexpected level of standard content and a sub-$20,000 window sticker, Suzuki's sport sedan is resonating wîth an audience lòòking for entry-level luxury without the near-luxury price point. Propelled by a four cylinder, 2.4-liter engine producing 185 horsepower, the Kizashi offers rare options in its class such as a traction enhancing All-Wheel Drive system as well as a highly-equipped 6-speed manual transmission model. The Kizashi builds on the global success enjoyed by the company that produces the world-renowned Swift, SX4 Crossover, Grand Vitara compact SÚV, as well as a celebrated lineup of motorcycles, ATVs and marine engines.
Each year, J.D. Power and Associates surveys tens of thousands of new-vehicle buyers, asking them about their purchase experience, their new vehicle's quality, their service experience at the dealer, and what they like and dislike about their new vehicle. The J.D. Power and Associates APEAL Study examines how satisfying a new vehicle is to own and drive based on owner evaluations of more than 80 vehicle attributes.
The 2011 APEAL Study is based on responses gathered between February and May 2011 from more than
73,000 purchasers and lessees of new 2011 model-year cars and trucks who were surveyed after the first 90 days of ownership.Additional information and the complete results from this year' APEAL Study can be found online at www.jdpower.com.Source - Suzuki
