Suzuki: Providing a commitment to your safety and peace of mind
Safety your family can depend on.
Did you know that Suzuki vehicles have earned a place in the highest possible overall rating category for crash tests performed by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS)? Out of potential scores of “Good, Acceptable, Marginal, or Poor,” the XL-7 and Aerio were both awarded the rating of “Good” in the IIHS 40-mph frontal offset crash test. In addition, Aerio received a “Best Pick” rating from the IIHS. This designation and the high ratings are especially impressive when you consider that some of the vehicles that scored as well, or even worse, cost a lot more. Additionally, the Grand Vitara, Vitara 5-Door and Vitara 3-Door performed well in other crash tests.
