It's true. We Brits are prone to a bit of a parochial view. We overstate our own importance in the world and we tend to react badly when we're reminded of our true status. Such a reminder occasionally comes in the form of cars that do very well for their manufacturers in other markets but are clearly not aimed at the UK's very specific set of requirements. Such an example was the Suzuki Kizashi all-wheel drive saloon. Here's what to look for when searching for a used example.
What Car? magazine, usually a reliable arbiter of a vehicle's talent, rated the Suzuki Kizashi as a one-star (out of five) vehicle. That's a harsh appraisal. Yes, the efficiency measures are some way off the class best, or even the average, but that fact is reflected in the asking price of a used example. Were running costs not such an issue, the Kizashi could more than hold its own. It makes a lot of sense for those who want something that works and works well in all weathers and which isn't going to cover intergalactic mileages. It's hard to know exactly who the typical British Kizashi buyer might be, but sometimes the most interesting people buy the most overlooked cars.
