2007 Suzuki Aerio news, pictures, and information
2007 SUZUKI AERIO DELIVERS FUNCTION, FEATURES, STYLEMulti-format audio system, expressive styling and available QuadGrip all-wheel-drive system keep Aerio ahead of the competition
The sporty Suzuki Aerio sedan adds more value in 2007, making it an even smarter buy. The fun-to-drive Aerio offers distinctive styling, a powerful and fuel-efficient 155 horsepower engine and available QuadGrip all-wheel-drive system (AWD), making it one of the most affordable AWD sedans on the market. Last year, the Aerio was upgraded wîth an AM/FM/CD/MP3 audio system wîth six speakers and standard ABS wîth electronic brake-force distribution (EBD). For 2007, new features include standard cruise control and standard automatic transmission on the Aerio Premium.
As wîth all 2007 Suzuki automobiles, the Aerio is backed by America's #1 Warranty: 100,000-mile/seven-year, fully transferable, zero deductible powertrain limited warranty.
A Powerful Advantage Únder the Hood
The sporty 2.3-liter, four-cylinder, 16-valve DOHC engine design produces an impressive 155 horsepower and 152 lb.-ft. of torque, providing drivers wîth a peppy ride. The Aerio is nimble and easy to maneuver for daily errands and adventures around town. The sophisticated, high-tech engine features a zero-maintenance, two-stage timing chain and is connected to the chassis wîth vibration-absorbing liquid-filled engine mounts.
Last year, the LEV emissions system was upgraded wîth enhanced OBDII for more efficient diagnostics capability and evaporative emissions reduction. The front-wheel-drive Aerio delivers EPA fuel economy estimates of 25 mpg/city and 31 mpg/highway wîth either manual or automatic transmission. (posted on conceptcarz.com)
Agile Handling and Available QuadGrip AWD System
The Aerio's independent MacPherson strut front and rear suspension provides capable handling and allows for efficient packaging for plenty of interior space. The power-assisted rack-and-pinion §teering combined wîth front and rear anti-roll bars help give Aerio an accurate, controlled feel in the corners. Suzuki's available QuadGrip all-wheel-drive system offers extra control, comfort and confidence. In normal operation, virtually all of the engine's torque is sent to the front wheels for maximum fuel efficiency. However, in situations where the front tires lose traction, such as climbing a slick incline or accelerating on a wet street, QuadGrip automatically and progressively transfers up to 50 percent of the engine's available torque to the rear wheels, operating seamlessly without driver input.
Solid Safety Engineering
Energy-absorbing structures in both the front and rear help to reduce the severity of crash impacts that reach the passenger compartment, while high-tensile steel beams in the doors and roof pillars help protect occupants in side impacts. The Aerio's roof is reinforced wîth two cross-members to help prevent the cabin from deforming in a collision. The Aerio also features standard front seatbelt pretensioners that take up slack in the seatbelts the instant a crash triggers the airbags.
The 2002 through 2005 Aerio models earned the top safety rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety for performance in the 40-mph frontal offset crash test and were deemed 'Best Picks.' In the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's (NHTSA) side-impact test, the 2004 Aerio (the most recent model tested) earned the top five-star rating for front seat passengers and a four-star rating for rear seat passengers.
With its standard advanced weight-sensing front passenger airbag supplemental restraint system (SRS), advanced dual-stage front airbag SRS and driver and front passenger seat-mounted side-impact airbag SRS (not included in the 2004 model NHTSA side-impact test), the 2007 Aerio provides a comforting level of passenger protection.

The Aerio has comfortable seating for five passengers, split-folding rear seatbacks and a best-in-class trunk wîth 14.6 cubic feet of space.
The interior was designed wîth convenience and style in mind. A handy center console offers convenient storage for smaller items and the quality seat fabric provides durability and a sporty look. In addition, last year's redesigned available automatic transmission shift lever helps give the interior a more refined, upscale look.
Trim Levels and Packages
Starting wîth the base model, drivers can choose between a front-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive system. The AWD comes wîth standard four-speed automatic transmission. (posted on conceptcarz.com) The Aerio offers an extensive list of standard features that make for a pleasant driving experience, including cruise control, air conditioning wîth automatic climate control, power windows, door locks and mirrors, digital clock and outside temperature information display, driver-side sunglasses holder, keyless entry system wîth 'panic' mode, a newly redesigned AM/FM/CD/MP3 audio system wîth six speakers and §teering-wheel-mounted audio controls. All safety features are standard, including advanced dual airbags, side-impact airbags and four-wheel ABS. A four-speed automatic transmission is optional on base models; power heated mirrors are an additional standard feature wîth the AWD.
The Aerio Premium adds automatic transmission, a six-disc in-dash CD changer wîth seven speakers, including two tweeters and a subwoofer, power heated mirrors, leather-wrapped §teering wheel and 15-inch aluminum alloy wheels.
Customers who want the convenience of a fully integrated iPod1 system can purchase an iPod interface from their Suzuki dealers. Once the device is plugged in, it works seamlessly through the radio and playlists and each song's information appear on the radio display.Source - Suzuki
The new vehicle came with a well-known reputation as an inexpensive ride with good gas mileage. Unfortunately, the Suzuki Aerio lacked any truly unique features that made it stand out among the already crowed compact car industry. Though both the hatchback and sedan models were speedy and efficient, they lacked in area of eye-catching design. Considered quite versatile though, the hatchback model did feature an impressive 64 cubic feet of cargo space once the rear seat was folded down.
In 2003 Suzuki released a sportier SUV-like model, the Aerio SX. For the 2004 model year the Aerio received a larger engine. The size was increased to a 2.3 liter that achieved 155 horsepower. The following year the Aerio was completely redesigned and showcased a brand new flashy interior with an all new modified exterior. To add to the functional utility look of the car, a user friendly and readable red glowing gauges replaced the earlier digital instrument panel. A new more convenient storage compartment was also added to the new Suzuki Aerio. The exterior of the car also received a standard rear spoiler that added a more sporty look and feel the vehicle.
For 2005, the Suzuki Aerio was updated further to become a more efficient model.
Only available as a 4-door sedan in base and premium trim levels as of the 2007 model year, the Aerio still features base models that are reasonably equipped. Premium trims featured new heated outside mirrors, a high quality audio system and premium alloy wheels. The 07 model still featured the same impressive 2.3 liter engine. The standard equipment package continued to include a 5-speed manual transmission while the premium trim includes a 4-speed automatic transmission.
Either all wheel drive or front wheel drive versions are available on both trim levels. The interior space was impressive due to the high roof line. Trunk space was also quite roomy with an available 14.6 cubic feet.
Today the Suzuki Aerio model is priced between $13,999 and $16,223.By Jessica Donaldson
