About the new 2005 Suzuki Reno, first things first:

1. There are no plans for a “ Reno 911” special edition with a seven-pointed star on the front fender, A-pillar spotlights, a three-year/36,000 donut warranty, and poor aim with a Glock sidearm.

2. A “Janet” Package with extra-length driver’s seat track and a Sense of Humor Delete will not be offered.

3. A Reno Gambler option (“Roulette” alloy wheels, exclusive “Blackjack” paint and Kenny Rogers in bas relief on the steering wheel hub) is not in the works.

Not that it matters. The ’05 Reno is good enough as it stands. As a contestant in the Gen-Y market hotly pursued by the Mazda3, Ford Focus, and just about every Scion, the five-door Reno packs a lot of value onto its 102.4-inch wheelbase. It brings Italian style to the small car market and proves that just because you’re frugal and functional, you don’t have to be frumpy.

There’s no secret, however, that when you lift up its skirts, there are Suzuki Forenza petticoats underneath, and under those are the legs of a Daewoo Nubira, late to these shores. Like both of those models, the Reno is made at GM’s Daewoo facilities in Korea as part of a longstanding relationship between GM and Suzuki.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
