Visit Suzuki for more information on the Suzuki Esteem.

Stylish and contemporary, the new 2002 Suzuki Esteem Sedan possesses a refined fluidity, versatile array of standard and optional equipment, and good performance at an economical price tag. The Esteem Sedan makes for an excellent choice whether for family, as a second car, or for up-and-coming young couples. Its attractive design will appeal to a broad spectrum of drivers, and its sensible nature makes it a great driving solution.

Available Models
The Suzuki Esteem Sedan is available for 2002 in two terrific models - the well-appointed Esteem GL Sedan, and the more luxurious Esteem GLX Sedan. Each model packs some pretty impressive specifications inside and out.

Interior Features
Within the cabin of the Suzuki Esteem GL Sedan is standard fare that includes an AM/FM stereo with in-dash CD player, air conditioning, remote fuel door release, remote trunk release, and a convenient folding rear seat to increase cargo capacity when required.

The Esteem GLX Sedan adds to the list power windows, power door locks, cruise control, driver and passenger vanity mirrors, and a split folding rear seat. The advantage of the split feature for the rear seat is the ability to accommodate one or two passengers in the rear while at the same time allowing longer items such as skis to extend easily into the passenger area. The GLX also features front seatback pockets, and both models offer optional floor mats. The cargo capacity is 12 cubic feet, and each vehicle seats five passengers.

Exterior Features
From the exterior of the Esteem GL Sedan we find fourteen-inch steel wheels with wheel covers, multi-reflector halogen headlights, body-colored bumpers, and body side moldings. The Suzuki Esteem GLX sports fourteen-inch aluminum wheels, and both front and rear splash guards. Each model offers accessories like a sporty trunk lid spoiler and fog lights.

Performance Specifications
Both the Esteem GL and GLX Sedans pack a 2.0-litre, 16-valve, DOHC, four-cylinder engine that produces 122 horsepower and 117 lbs-ft of torque. The standard transmission is five-speed manual for each vehicle, and the convenience and ease of four-speed automatic transmission is available as an option as well. For the manual variety, the fuel consumption rating is 28/35 mpg (city/hwy), while the automatic versions check in at 26/33 mpg (city/hwy).

Among the outstanding features are a MacPherson strut front suspension, power-assisted rack-and-pinion steering, direct ignition system, liquid-filled motor mounts, and a zero-maintenance self-adjusting two-stage timing chain.

Safety and Security
The Suzuki Esteem GL Sedan is equipped with standard safety features such as integrated front and rear crumple zones, second-generation dual air bags, reinforced side impact door beams, and an energy-absorbing steering column. As well, the GL is bolstered with height-adjustable shoulder belts, rear door child safety locks, child seat tether anchors, and an internal trunk release handle. The Esteem GLX Sedan adds a remote keyless entry system.
