wonder if it will hit our shores ;)

the review looks pretty impressive... and with 6MT too! seems the reviewer is bashing the other makes on that report....



The Kizashi drives better than basically everything in its class. Camry, Accord, Altima, Jetta, Malibu, Mazda6, Legacy – you name it. How? Well, unlike all of those cars that were engineered in focus groups, the Kizashi was tested on both Germany's Nürburgring and California's own Willow Springs.


Under the hood is a 2.4-liter DOHC inline-four that stumps up 185 horsepower and 170 pound-feet of torque – though if you opt for the CVT transmission you only get 180 hp – yet another reason to row your own. Belying the power rating is the motor's readiness to rev. Redline is indicated at 6,500 RPM and fuel cutoff happens at about 6,750, but getting up into those lofty revs takes no time whatsoever. The motor just roars when you clobber the pedal. Compared to other four-cylinder engines in its class, the Kizashi's motor is straight-up stout. In a Nissan Altima you get 175 hp (though 180 lb-ft of torque). A Toyota Camry gives you 169 hp and 167 lb-ft of torque, though you can get a version of its 2.5-liter inline-four with 179 hp and 171 lb-ft of twist. Base Honda Accord? 177 horses and 161 torques. And just for giggles, Sebring? 177 hp and 166 lb-ft. Now, of course, all of those (larger) cars are available with a more powerful V6, and right now, the Kizashi isn't. And to that we say good.

hmm. Edmunds insideline gave 8.3seconds for the 6MT for the 2.4 version.

Hope they bring in the CVT too.

It is meant to compete in a category that the old Mazda 6 and Subaru Legacy once was - somewhere between the Honda Civic and the Camry.

Hope it suceeds, just like the old Mazda 6. thumbsup.gif

Will there be a 2.0 version available?

SX4 is SX4... Kizashi is Kizashi...the size of Kizashi is like Hyundai Sonata Taxis or Toyota Camry....


Not here yet.... maybe next year will be out in Japan, bu not sure if CM will bring in this 2.5 liter....unless got 2.0 version which I feel may not be powerful enough.
