As far as hatchbacks go, the Suzuki Reno might not seem to have a lot to offer on the surface. For one thing, it more than bears a superficial resemblance to a lot of vehicles in the same class. What does set it apart from its competitors is the fact that Suzuki focused on one thing that the others ignored: value. That's what the Reno is all about: providing all the comfort and spacious interior of a hatchback, at a price that most anyone can afford. Sure, the specs won't exactly wow you over, but it did what it had toget you from point A to B with ease.
On the surface, the Suzuki Reno is a good-looking, if inelegant, ride. It does all things right in terms of looks with the smooth elegant lines, the standard but effective front face, and the curves in all the right places. Under the hood, the most powerful engine you can get onto it is a 2.0-L gasoline engine with a modest 121 horsepower output. Driving it around the city or the suburbs felt rightit was substantial enoughbut you couldn't count on it for long drives down the highway. Still, that isn't the point of the Reno to begin with! If you're looking for a decent city car that will fit a tight budget, then the Reno is perfect.
With a lot of Suzuki Reno parts out in the marketand a compatibility with some standard replacementsthe Reno goes beyond just the value you got when you bought it to begin with. You get additional savings from the fact that its parts were easy to replace with high-quality components from a whole lot of reliable brands in the aftermarket industry. You could replace the shafts in your engine as easily as you could replace the struts on your suspension. It is that great flexibility and ease of maintenance that makes the Suzuki Reno a worthwhile investment.
