The 2008 Suzuki Forenza does not perform well in crash tests. Although it earns four out of five stars for frontal impacts from the NHTSA, the IIHS gives it an “Acceptable"" score for front impacts–its second best–and “Poor"" for side impacts–its worst score. Safety needs a bit of work, especially if you have a family.
To say the 2008 Suzuki Forenza Wagon is a misfire sounds like a bit of an understatement. Suzuki has tried hard to make an economy vehicle that stands out from the competition. Even with the help of the same design studio that created the famous Ferrari styling, nothing saves the Forenza.
Thanks to the famous Pininfarina design studio, the 2008 Suzuki Forenza sedan and wagon boast styling that sets them apart from similarly-sized economy-minded vehicles. The front end of the Forenza, which was revised in 2006, has a smooth, sporty appearance and is complemented by body-color bumpers, trim, and door handles. Wagons get a bright roof rails.
