KBB Expert Ratings Countdown: Suzuki

KBB Expert Ratings Countdown: Suzuki

Some auto companies can't get any good media coverage, but for Suzuki, the trick is in getting any coverage at all. Well known for building hot two-wheeled machines like the Suzuki GSX-R and Suzuki Boulevard motorcycles, relatively few car shoppers realize that there's another Japanese brand to consider, one with increasingly competitive products backed by a long warranty. That fully-transferable coverage spans seven years or 100,000 miles, and is offered on all Suzuki cars, trucks and SUVs.

Among the ranks are the Suzuki SX4 sedan and Suzuki SX4 crossover, the latter being one of the least expensive all-wheel-drive vehicles available in the U.S. The SX4 variants are suitable for drivers in need of small sedan or wagon functionality, but those requiring a bit more space and utility might want to consider the Suzuki Grand Vitara, or better yet, the seven-passenger Suzuki XL7. Granted, they may not be as fun as a Suzuki GSX-R600 on a twisty road, but they're a heck of a lot better in the snow.

Then again, perhaps you're already an owner of a Suzuki motorcycle or ATV, and you want a rig that will occasionally haul your toy. With needs such as these in mind, Suzuki paired up with Nissan and rebadged that company's Frontier pickup, calling it the Suzuki Equator.
