Suzuki Offering $250 to Test Drive Kizashi
Suzuki is actually paying drivers to buy another automaker's car.
Now it's not as crazy as it sounds. Suzuki will give $250 to anyone who test-drives a Kizashi and then buys a competing sedan (Honda Accord, Nissan Altima, Chevrolet Malibu, Mazda6, Ford Fusion or Toyota Camry) within three days.
The reason for all this confidence is that the Kizashi came in third among those models in a recent competition, and was widely praised by all the editors on hand, as well as the real-world family that participated.
The $250 deal runs through July 31.
Suzuki also offers a similar incentive ($100) for shoppers who buy an Audi A4 or Acura TSX after test-driving the Kizashi.
What does Suzuki offer those who happen to buy a Kizashi?
0% financing for 48 months until Aug. 2, plus a $290 prepaid gas card (until Aug. 31.)
