The Suzuki Forenza is a more stylish sedan and wagon compared to some of its siblings like the Suzuki Aerio and Baleno. It was built by Daewoo, a Korean automaker then rebadged as the Forenza for the American market. It penetrated the mainstream market and saw worldwide success since its unveiling in 2002. The Forenza is mostly targeted for value-oriented car buyers who are more interested in convenience than power. Its overall performance is below average compared to other competitors. It also has an average fuel economy despite being a budget-friendly vehicle. However, it offers some competitive features including a European-inspired design and a roomy interior.
The interior feels luxurious with lots of metallic trims and comfortable legroom. It maintains Suzuki’s sporty dashboard which features an analog instrument panel. There are several storage options including front and rear cupholders, door panels, centerbox, glovebox, and seat sleeves. Additionally, there’s ample boot space which can be expanded by folding the rear seats. A sunroof and ABS come as options for all grades to rival pricier sedans in the market. Other standard features include full power accessories, steering-wheel audio controls, front-seat side airbags, four-wheel disc brakes, air-conditioning, and a CD/MP3 stereo.
