General Motors added the Suzuki Forenza Wagon to its lineup of Forenza sedans in 2005. It provides a fashionable and compact station wagon estate vehicle with a four-cylinder engine and either an automatic or manual transmission. The 2005 Suzuki Forenza Wagon features a classy design taken from the Italian auto designer Pininfarina. It offers this style at an inexpensive price due to the vehicle being built by Daewoo Motors in South Korea.
The Forenza Wagon presents an alternative to the Ford Focus wagon, Mitsubishi Lancer Sportback, and other similar vehicles on the market but with added inside features and an extensive list of safety features.
The Suzuki Forenza Wagon has become known for its aerodynamic build outside and classy touches inside. It captures consumer interest with a plentitude of factory-installed features that give it the look and feel of a more expensive vehicle but at a more competitive price.
The 2005 Suzuki Forenza classifies a four-door, five-passenger vehicle available in three trims: S, LX, and EX with both manual and automatic versions. As a wagon, it offers extra room for luggage or other items but does not have as much space as similar wagons on the market and suffers from poor fuel efficiency. However, it includes an exceptional 10-year warranty.

The 2005 Suzuki Forenza Wagon LX features a power glass sunroof with a vented sliding cover. The EX also has the sunroof, along with the 15-inch alloy wheels.

Performance & Handling
The 2005 Suzuki Forenza Wagon feels nice to drive with a very smooth ride due to its four-wheel independent suspension. The wagon has good steering abilities and it maintains stability even at higher speeds. The four-cylinder does not add a ton of quick acceleration, but the wagon has adequate maneuverability. It drives with ease in the city but seems less efficient on the highway when passing, and changing lanes seems more difficult than it would be with a more powerful engine.
Standard safety features for the 2005 Suzuki Forenza Wagon include front airbags and rear disc brakes. Additional features include rear wipers, emergency trunk release, child safety locks, and height-adjustable headrests.
The LX and EX offer an anti-lock braking system, and the EX includes a remote anti-theft alarm system.
