Although well known for its inexpensive four-wheel-drive models, Suzuki is less renowned for its conventional cars. The Swift supermini has sold steadily but is now showing its age, the bigger Baleno was keenly priced and well equipped but sold poorly.

No Euro NCAP crash test results yet. It has driver and passenger airbags but Liana lacks some of the safety features now considered standard for a car in this class. ABS and side airbag on GLX only. Alarm/immobiliser on all models.

Reliability

Inherits Suzuki's rugged 4x4 pedigree with good build quality, but the interior lacks the premium feel of a Ford Focus or Peugeot 307.
