The 2007 Suzuki Aerio has a few things going for it. This car features a stylish exterior design that appeals to the younger generation. It also offers impressive fuel economy and a low price tag. For the low price, buyers can expect the Aerio sedan to offer satisfactory power under the hood with this 2.3-liter, four-cylinder engine. There is nothing wrong with this car’s ability to get up and go, and it makes for a pleasant highway drive. The interior cabin space feels roomy and provides more head and leg room than other models in its class. This feature proves especially helpful for taller drivers and passengers or those trying to maneuver car seats in and out of the back seat.
Everything comes with its tradeoffs, and the 2007 Suzuki Aerio does have some drawbacks. These cars receive low scores in side-impact collisions by independent and government testing facilities. In terms of handling and precision, the weak transmission system is often a determent on twisting roads. Body roll creates a bit of a problem. Additionally, while roomy, the cabin uses less than high-quality materials and looks a little cheap. Overall, however, the Aerio with its four-wheel drive option serves as a good car with all-weather capabilities.

For the 2007 model year, the Suzuki Aerio wagon body style gets dropped. Suzuki makes no other significant changes for this model year.
The 2007 Suzuki Aerio design keeps the younger, hipper crowd in mind. While only a midsize sedan, it offers smooth lines, modern curves, and a unique headlight and grille design. Available in a wide variety of colors, the Aerio looks impressive on the road and enjoys some attention.
The most unique feature the 2007 Suzuki Aerio offers in terms of its interior over the competition is room. Since this car offers higher ground clearance than other small sedan options, getting into and out of the Aerio seems easier. This feature also allows for more head and leg room inside the cabin. The 2006 model year saw an improvement on the gauge cluster which carries over for the 2007 editions. Unfortunately, the materials used inside the cabin look and feel cheap, taking away from the numerous advantages this car offers.
Performance & Handling
When it comes to performance and handling, the 2007 Suzuki Aerio has both pros and cons. This car offers sufficient power from its 2.3-liter, four-cylinder engine. Either transmission option offers a nice, smooth highway ride, but on a road with any kind of twists and turns, the transmission feels loose and sloppy, creating more body roll than most drivers feel comfortable with. Selecting the all-wheel drive option helps matters a bit. The all-wheel drive has also proven very effective in snowy weather.
With safety, the 2007 Suzuki Aerio does relatively well in independent and government crash testing. For governmental front crash tests, it receives a four out of five star rating for driver protection and a three out of five star rating for passenger safety. This model also receives a ?good? rating in front-impact tests from independent sources, while the side collision test only rates ?poor.? All of the Aerio models come equipped with four-wheel anti-lock brakes and front side-impact airbags.
