Which used Suzuki Liana hatchback should I buy?
When buying second-hand, it really is a case of reversing the advice we gave when buying this car new. When new, it wasn't worth paying the extra £1000 asking price for the GLX over the GL. However, now that someone else has taken the hit on depreciation - and, believe us, they will have - you may as well go for the better equipped GLX.
Early GL models left the factory with electric windows, electric mirrors, twin airbags and radio cassette players, but were fitted with CD players after the interior was revised in April 2004. GLX trim adds alloy wheels, air-con, a rear centre-three point belt and, more importantly, side airbags. A four-door saloon was introduced in 2002, but we recommend this more practical five-door hatchback.
There's only one engine, a 105bhp 1.6-litre and it's best with the five-speed manual as opposed to the four-speed auto.
