Yaris offers good ride quality and decent value

I like the honesty of the Yaris package. Hard to ignore Suzuki’s standard spec, though

While the upsized engine in the Yaris is welcome, the Baleno is hard to beat on value

Further confirmation of Suzuki’s rise

    The Baleno is an outright winner here. The sad thing about Suzuki is that they do not realise the extent to which the interior quality of a car can influence buyers. So, while the Baleno is a value product, you will not see many of them on the road, which is a pity really.

    Surprising how fast Suzuki is rising, if they continue they will easily be one of the biggest manufacturers of cars…. i believe that they are very reliable, however suzuki needs to focus a little on interior quality. I would like better leather seats for example. The jimny is simply stunning. I would like a height adjustable seat and adjustable stearing rack though to get the perfect position. Lastly suzuki needs a halo sports car in their line. Would love them to add a two or even 1 seater superbike engined lightweight sportscar to their line.
