What's the used Suzuki Liana hatchback like?
Some small cars are so refined and comfortable they can convince you that you're driving a much bigger car. Alas, the Suzuki Liana is not one of them - every bump in road is sent into the cabin. However, to be fair, the Liana doesn't handle too badly and it corners tidily without massive amounts of body roll.
There's not too much wind or road noise, but the 1.6-litre petrol engine is far from hushed. It needs to be revved hard to get the best from it, and that just means it gets noisy and harsh.
Things aren't too bad behind the wheel, thanks to a reasonable dashboard, and there's plenty of room both front and rear. The split-folding seat is easy to use, but a high boot floor and the intruding suspension turrets reduce carrying capacity.
