The tested model of Suzuki Kizashi was introduced in Australia during 2010. This 5-star rating applies to Kizashi models with seven airbags and front seat belt reminders. Not all 2010 year models have these features.
Dual front airbags, driver knee airbag, side airbags and head-protecting side curtains are standard equipment from 2011. Antilock brakes (ABS), electronic brake distribution (EBD) and electronic stability control (ESC) are also standard. Intelligent seat belt reminders are fitted to both front seats. Pretensioners are fitted to the front seat belts to reduce slack in the event of a crash. A three point seat belt is fitted to the centre rear seat.
