Suzuki Reno

The Reno makes the most of its five-door layout. It functions like a four-door sedan when passenger capacity is key, then turns into a cargo hauler when the 60/40 split-folding rear seatbacks are folded down. The big rear hatch swings up, and with the rear seats folded it’s easy to accommodate long, wide or bulky items in the 45.4 cubic feet cargo area.

Interior space is generous, as expected from a car with a relatively long, 102.4-inch wheelbase and wide stance. The driver’s seat has height- and lumbar-support adjustments, along with an adjustable headrest – all calculated to suit a wide variety of body types. For 2006, there also is a standard tilt steering wheel and new seat fabric to further enhance comfort.

The smooth-running 2.0-liter, four-cylinder, 16-valve DOHC engine produces 127 horsepower at 5,600 rpm and 131 lb.-ft. of torque at 4,000 rpm.

The Reno provides its driver and passengers with multiple safety technologies such as advanced dual-stage front airbag supplemental restraint system (SRS), advanced weight-sensing front passenger airbag SRS and driver and front passenger seat-mounted side-impact airbags SRS. Additionally, the driver and front passenger seats feature three-point safety belts with pretensioners and height-adjustable shoulder belts; the back seat also has three-point seatbelts and headrests for all three passengers. A Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH) child seat system and child-safety rear door locks are standard for added safety. Finally, front and rear crumple zones, along with guard beams in the side doors, help control the impact energy and protect the occupants in a crash.
