According to the reviews examined at TheCarConnection.com, the 2008 Suzuki Reno offers average levels of comfort combined with a decently finished cabin.

Cars.com reports that the "five-occupant Reno has more front and rear legroom than the Mazda3 or Matrix;" ConsumerGuide discovers "plenty of headroom and legroom, even for taller folks" up in front; in the rear, "headroom, legroom, and foot space are adequate for adults as long as the front seats aren't set far back." Edmunds says "drivers looking to get more comfortable will appreciate the Reno's highly adjustable driver seat," and notes that backseat passengers are "treated to a fold-down center armrest."

ConsumerGuide observes that the Suzuki Reno "has a usefully large cargo hold and a generous liftgate opening." Edmunds states that "cargo capacity is less than 9 cubic feet with the rear seat up, but thanks to the hatchback architecture, opens up to a much more accommodating 45 cubic feet with the seat folded" and adds that "folks with lots of stuff will enjoy a multitude of storage compartments."

According to Cars.com, these Suzuki 2008 gauges are "simple but adequate," but "the radio controls are hard to decipher." ConsumerGuide says that "switchgear has a quality feel," but notes that "use of quality plastics and solid assembly quality belie Reno's low price." Nonetheless, Kelley Blue Book attests that "despite an abundance of hard plastic trim, the overall fits are good, the [Suzuki 2008] gauges legible and key controls logically placed and finger-friendly."

Most noise issues with the 2008 Suzuki Reno are related to the engine, which, according to ConsumerGuide, "roars intrusively during acceleration and turns buzzy at higher speeds," along with "some suspension pounding over bumps and substantial wind rush at freeway speeds."

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.
