    Rare JATCO CVT7 equipped Suzuki Kizashi spotted.

    I was obsessed with this AWD performance sedan in my 20s. Suzuki's last good product sold in the states, along with the Vitara.Name:  20220608_085608.jpg

    The Kizashi was available with a 6 speed manual also. It does use the same CVT the Mirage uses and the Kizashi is at the upper HP limit for the CVT7 JF011E. Either Suzuki used a much better transmission cooler than Mitsubishi to handle the horsepower or these didn't last a ultra long time due to the stress and heat.

    I test drove one with the 6 speed back in the day. Drove great and was a great value for the $$ but at the time was worried about Suzuki's long term commitment to the USA so I passed.

    i ddnt know that this car is special its quite common here its rare but not that rare, maybe im just not a fan of suzuki, but i like their new swift i like the wide body styling, just put a wider mags on it and it will surely outshines the mirage.
