Our Take

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

Vehicle Overview
Known for its small cars and sport utility vehicles, Suzuki added a midsize family sedan for 2004. Billed by the automaker as an affordable luxury sedan with a European look, Suzuki's Verona competed against the Honda Accord, Nissan Altima and Toyota Camry.

The front-wheel-drive Verona's European look is the product of the Italdesign organization in Italy. Developed with assistance from Porsche, the Verona's 2.5-liter inline-six-cylinder produces 155 horsepower. A tire-pressure-monitoring system and standard side-impact airbags went into 2005 models.

Suzuki has adopted a simplified model strategy for the 2006 model year. Verona interiors have been revised slightly, rear passengers have a new coat hook, and cruise control has been modified. The Verona now meets ULEV-II (Ultra Low Emissions Vehicle) emissions standards.


Exterior
Wider than the Altima and Camry, the Verona features fog lamps and dual-halogen headlights. The sedan sports chrome door handles, and color-keyed side moldings have chrome inserts.

Measuring 187.8 inches long overall, the Verona rides a 106.3-inch wheelbase. Speed-sensing power steering and all-disc brakes are standard.


Interior
A tilt steering wheel with integrated stereo controls is installed in a woodgrain-accented interior that seats five. Power windows, locks and heated mirrors are standard. Padded center armrests go in the front and rear. Trunk space totals 13.4 cubic feet.

Standard equipment includes 60/40-split, folding re...

Measuring 187.8 inches long overall, the Verona rides a 106.3-inch wheelbase. Speed-sensing power steering and all-disc brakes are standard.


Interior
A tilt steering wheel with integrated stereo controls is installed in a woodgrain-accented interior that seats five. Power windows, locks and heated mirrors are standard. Padded center armrests go in the front and rear. Trunk space totals 13.4 cubic feet.

Standard equipment includes 60/40-split, folding rear seatbacks, air conditioning with micron air filtration, cruise control, remote keyless entry with an anti-theft device, and a cassette/CD stereo system. The Luxury Package adds automatic climate control, heated front seats, leather-trimmed seats, an auto-dimming inside mirror, solar glass, 16-inch alloy wheels and a moonroof.


Under the Hood
Suzuki's all-aluminum, 2.5-liter inline-six-cylinder develops 155 hp at 5,800 rpm and 177 pounds-feet of torque at 4,000 rpm. The four-speed-automatic transmission has a gated shifter, and the adaptive control system can "learn" driver habits and alter the shift pattern to optimize performance.

Safety
All-disc antilock brakes and seat-mounted side-impact airbags are standard. Every seating position has a three-point seat belt and head restraint.

Driving Impressions
Despite several imperfections, the well-equipped Verona midsize sedan delivers plenty of car for the money. You get a pleasant and cushy ride on smooth surfaces, and the Verona deals with harsher pavement relatively well. Steering isn't the most precise among midsize sedans, but it's adequate. Nicely stable on the highway, the Verona isn't entirely confident through fast, tight curves.

Acceleration from a standing start is satisfactory after a moment of initial sluggishness. The six-cylinder engine is quiet most of the time but grows noisy when the transmission is downshifting. Those downshifts tend to be somewhat uncertain and hesitant, but they're less noticeable on level roads.

Headroom and elbowroom in the front is ample, though the front passenger seat is short on leg space and the seat bottoms are short. Rear headroom and legroom are very good, and loading cargo into the square trunk is fairly easy. The gauges are deep-set but easy to read.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
