Attitude and Style
The Suzuki Aerio has a contemporary flavor and more attitude than you might expect for a vehicle in the class. As the Aerio was designed slightly taller than most passenger cars in the class, it offers expansive headroom and positions the driver with a high eyepoint and excellent road visibility.

The Suzuki Aerio has comfortable seating for five passengers, split-folding rear seatbacks and a best-in-class trunk with 14.6 cubic feet of space.

The interior was designed with convenience and style in mind. A handy center console offers convenient storage for smaller items and the quality seat fabric provides durability and a sporty look. In addition, last year’s redesigned available automatic transmission shift lever helps give the interior a more refined, upscale look.

Trim Levels and Packages
Starting with the base model, drivers can choose between a front-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive system. The AWD comes with standard four-speed automatic transmission. The Aerio offers an extensive list of standard features that make for a pleasant driving experience, including cruise control, air conditioning with automatic climate control, power windows, door locks and mirrors, digital clock and outside temperature information display, driver-side sunglasses holder, keyless entry system with “panic” mode, a newly redesigned AM/FM/CD/MP3 audio system with six speakers and steering-wheel-mounted audio controls. All safety features are standard, including advanced dual airbags, side-impact airbags and four-wheel ABS. A four-speed automatic transmission is optional on base models; power heated mirrors are an additional standard feature with the AWD.

The Aerio Premium adds automatic transmission, a six-disc in-dash CD changer with seven speakers, including two tweeters and a subwoofer, power heated mirrors, leather-wrapped steering wheel and 15-inch aluminum alloy wheels.

Customers who want the convenience of a fully integrated iPod1 system can purchase an iPod interface from their Suzuki dealers. Once the device is plugged in, it works seamlessly through the radio and playlists and each song’s information appear on the radio display.

About Suzuki
The Brea, Calif.-based Automotive Operations of American Suzuki Motor Corporation (ASMC) was founded in 1985 by parent company Suzuki Motor Corporation (SMC) and currently markets its vehicles in the United States through a network of more than 520 automotive dealerships in 49 states. Based in Hamamatsu, Japan, SMC is a diversified worldwide automobile, motorcycle and outboard motor manufacturer with sales of more than two million new vehicles annually. Founded in 1909 and incorporated in 1920, SMC has operations in 125 countries.

With its standard advanced weight-sensing front passenger airbag supplemental restraint system (SRS), advanced dual-stage front airbag SRS and driver and front passenger seat-mounted side-impact airbag SRS (not included in the 2004 model NHTSA side-impact test), the 2007 Aerio provides a comforting level of passenger protection.
Energy-absorbing structures in both the front and rear help to reduce the severity of crash impacts that reach the passenger compartment, while high-tensile steel beams in the doors and roof pillars help protect occupants in side impacts. The Suzuki Aerio’s roof is reinforced with two cross-members to help prevent the cabin from deforming in a collision. The Aerio also features standard front seatbelt pretensioners that take up slack in the seatbelts the instant a crash triggers the airbags.
The 2002 through 2005 Suzuki Aerio models earned the top safety rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety for performance in the 40-mph frontal offset crash test and were deemed “Best Picks.” In the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) side-impact test, the 2004 Aerio (the most recent model tested) earned the top five-star rating for front seat passengers and a four-star rating for rear seat passengers.
