Though it’s pleasantly rounded on the outside, the 2008 Suzuki Reno’s interior styling leaves reviewers unmoved.

The Reno—in its last year on sale, as there’s no 2009 model planned—benefits from some Euro styling cues, notes Car and Driver: "the five-door hatchback design is by Italdesign-Giugiaro and is not off-putting...[it's] a mean-looking little brawler." Cars.com praises the Reno's "gracefully rising style lines and athletically refined side profile." Kelley Blue Book says this Suzuki 2008's "aggressively styled bodywork...still looks clean and contemporary as it enters its fifth season."

Inside, the 2008 Suzuki Reno's styling is somewhat blander, however. According to Cars.com, buyers are limited to a "two-tone interior"; in an attempt to put a positive spin on it, Kelley Blue Book reports that "charcoal and silver define the primary color palette...tastefully intermixing on the dash, door panels and seats." Edmunds says that "in an effort to spice things up a bit inside, Reno designers installed an attractive set of gauges surrounded by metallic accents which extend to the rest of the dash and console areas," but acknowledges that the Suzuki 2008 interior has "too much cheap gray plastic everywhere else."

Conclusion

The Euro-influenced exterior of the 2008 Suzuki Reno is a few grades above its forgettable interior.

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.
