Suzuki Liana Overview
The Suzuki Liana was a subcompact car produced by the Japanese automaker Suzuki from 2001 to 2007. It was known for its spacious interior and fuel efficiency. The Liana was introduced as a replacement for the Suzuki Esteem/Baleno. It was available in two body styles: a 5-door hatchback and a 4-door sedan.
Its design was rather unique and somewhat quirky when it was launched, setting it apart from other compact cars of the era. Suzuki offered a range of engines for the Liana, including 1.3L, 1.5L, 1.6L, and 1.8L petrol engines. In some markets, a 2.0L diesel engine was also available. The car was front-wheel drive, but Suzuki also offered an all-wheel-drive version in some markets, notably in the hatchback variant. The Liana’s interior was spacious for its class, with a higher seating position offering good visibility. The dashboard had a somewhat unconventional central positioning for some of its instruments, adding to the car’s unique character.
Suzuki Liana Sales Figures
While the Liana was generally appreciated for its practicality and spaciousness, it didn’t manage to capture a significant market share in the compact segment in many Western markets. However, it found better success in emerging markets where the Suzuki brand was strong and well-regarded.
