The Bad: Wheels are too small. shape is not bold or aggressive. more noise deadening

Suzuki has been pulling sales recently with the of the full size Forenza, Italian design and a smooth However such luck has not upon the Aerio which is seen on the roads of America. being an all wheel drive at a very low price point, Corolla, Mazda 3, and Ford have all grabbed more share than the Suzuki

The Aerio is available in four sedan models labeled S or LX, or the model tested here the SX. On the outside the Aerio SX we tested is and small.

A rear spoiler with an brake light gives the a sporty look, which is as it should be.

Under the hood is a 2.3 16 valve four cylinder engine that develops 155 and 152 ft-lb of torque. One thing we did not when looking under the was the fact that we could see through the engine bay to the ground That just adds to the of cheapness in a car, and we feel it should be fully covered

Besides looks, the engine in the is quick and fast. The Aerio reaches highway speeds in a manner. Engine noise at rpms is noticeable and there is sporty exhaust note.

We had a opportunity to test the Aerio in a snow storm where it amazingly well. This car is a to throw around in large drifts. The highly rated Geotracker tires on the Aerio you to drive through two foot of snow easily.

Even on ice the along with the four-wheel system performed to our amazement. normal driving on dry surfaces, is delivered to the front wheels. front wheels begin to the QuadGrip all wheel drive transfers some power to the wheels, providing an optimum front-rear power distribution for traction and handling. The function is quick and hard to notice on driving surfaces.

Our model did its back end when braking on surfaces, and so we would highly the ABS system which is optional.

The driver�s seat an armrest for added comfort and manual adjustments for height as The front seat backrest adequate support with bolstered side portions. A keyless entry is also with power locks, and mirrors.

At night the glows red inside, which is for your eyes.

Exterior low are a bit dull and ineffective but the fog lamps do add a amount of light directly in of your car. The rear lamps did not offer any special to this model, we liked the Kia lamp design much
