From everything read by the auto experts at TheCarConnection.com, the 2008 Suzuki Reno is not outstanding in terms of safety.
The Suzuki Reno received four of five stars in National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) crash tests. Frontal-offset crash tests on this Suzuki 2008 model performed by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) were "acceptable," the second-highest rating under this organization's criteria.
According to Edmunds, "front side-impact airbags and four-wheel disc brakes are standard" for the Suzuki Reno. However, Cars.com advises "all-disc antilock brakes with electronic brake-force distribution are optional with the Convenience Package." Side and curtain airbags are unavailable.
ConsumerGuide says that 2008 Suzuki Reno "visibility is better than average, though some testers say rear headrests interfere with the over-the-shoulder view."
