2006 Suzuki Forenza Overview

The Suzuki Forenza got a significant makeover for 2006. Key changes included a new grille, reduced emissions, and higher quality interior materials. The number of trims goes down to 4 from 6 the previous year. This '06 version of Suzuki's budget compact sedan comes as a Base and Premium Sedan and Wagon.

Gas mileage averages out to 22 mpg in the city and 30 on the highway. Unfortunately, the 2.0 L, 126 hp I4 engine with standard 5 speed manual transmission and optional 4 speed automatic just doesn't quite cut it in a market where the V6 carries the day. All 4 trims have 4 doors, seat 5, and have front wheel drive. Standard features include air conditioning, power windows, power door locks, and cd player. Premium trims have optional sunroof.

Overall, most drivers reach the consensus that the 2006 Forenza delivers enough features for an affordable first car. Otherwise, the lower class materials and occasionally rough ride present only a couple of the many issues consumers encounter with this compact. Suzuki's slogan for the Forenza says 'It's gonna be a great ride.' If you're low on cash, this model will get you by until you earn enough to make the slogan a reality.
