Sitting between the base and top-end trims in the lineup, the 2005 Suzuki Reno LX is front-wheel drive hatchback introduced this year. Riding on a full independent suspension, the LX shares the 2.0-liter DOHC I4 engine with the rest of the trims. Paired with either a 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic, the powertrain hits 126-hp and 131 ft-lbs of torque. For a compact hatch, however, the 22/30 fuel economy proves disappointing to owners.
Moving up to the LX adds a sunroof, cruise control, remote entry, 15-inch alloy wheels, a security system, and leather trim to the hatchback. It also gets a rear window wiper, though this is not intermittent like the front ones. Foglights and a rear spoiler are exterior upgrades. Already standard are a full power setup, wheel-mounted audio controls for the CD/MP3 player, an 8-speaker sound system, cupholders, a tachometer, heated mirrors, and tilt and powe steering. On the safety side, the 2005 Reno LX comes equipped with dual front-side airbags, daytime running lights, and 4-wheel disc brakes. ABS brakes are optional. The roomy hatch seats four, with 60/40 split-folding rear seats that expand the small 8.8 cubic foot trunk to 45.5 cubic feet. Passengers are treated to 42 inches of legroom up front and 36.7 in the back.
