Suzuki makes cars? Who knew? Truly, that is the first thought that came to mind when Kristin told me (and invited me to take her place) about the #SuzukiMomFest event. When I think about Suzuki I usually think about one of their ATV’s or motorcycles. I wasn’t even aware that Suzuki Auto made cars… I thought it they made all these all the time.
But my visit to the GORGEOUS St. Charles, IL changed my perception of Suzuki. Did I mention how gorgeous St. Charles is? We stayed at Hotel Baker along the Fox River. It was seriously straight out of a movie beautiful there. I 100% understand why Family Circle named St. Charles the #1 city for families… I wonder if I can get Brian to move? Probably not move. I am far to lazy to move… You have to pack up stuff you know. So we at least have to go back and visit. Especially in fall… Tree lined streets full of falling leaves? Pure magic. I almost expected to see a unicorn frolicking in the tree tops.
We were lucky enough to test drive some of the Suzuki Auto vehicle lineup while in Illinois. Taking a long scenic drive is the perfect way to really get the feel of a vehicle. And while I drove in the Grand Vitara and SX4 I decided they weren’t what I was looking for in an SUV. I like them huge with a 3rd row seat and cargo space to spare. While they both had ample leg room and storage capacity they weren’t my cup of tea. But I know so many people like the smaller “sportier” SUV’s… So they may fit the bill for you. But as far as cars go I like them cute, fun, sporty, and fully loaded. That is probably why I liked the Suzuki Kizashi so much. (We are even looking at it for our upcoming purchase of a new commuter car. Before my trip that wouldn’t have even crossed my mind)
Leslie and I
And nothing says fun and fully loaded like two ladies and a sunroof. It’s the little things that make all the difference. The Kizashi was jam packed with all the little things I really want/need in a vehicle. Bluetooth, memory seats, leather, 8 standard airbags, and so much more…. Like the most amazing keyless entry system. With the Kizashi’s key fob you can stick the keys in your purse and literally forget about them. As long as you are very close to the vehicle there is a button on the car to unlock the doors, start the car, and open the trunk. It’s like my messy purses dream.
Of course the Kizashi had the MOST important feature for any busy Mom. A place to put our ice cold Diet Coke. It’s how I stay sane on countless hours of carpool and road-trips.
And don’t worry. There is plenty of room for all the junk in your trunk… Or all the goodies you got during a scavenger hunt at Target.
And Suzuki wants YOU to win all the junk in my trunk. Well not my trunk… but the Kizashi’s. And trust me you want to win all the Junk In the Trunk… because it’s not junk at all. Up for grabs is over $96 in goodies for the Mom/family on the run including:
Size 2 diapers
Car seat activity mirror
It’s easy to enter just leave a comment below telling me what your favorite feature in a car is. That’s all. Easy huh?
