Suzuki Splash Review

The first Suzuki Splash was introduced as a five-door mini-slash-MPV-slash-city car, with this interesting combination beeing seen as an improvement over the boxier looking Wagon R. Since then the model has made several improvements to maintain the car brand’s original appeal.

Pros

The most significant improvement to the latest Suzuki Splash is the 1.2-litre petrol engine. Its 93bhp unit sports a Dual VVT that sports better fuel economy than the 1.2 engine—CO2 emissions are decreased from 129g/km to 119g/km. The diesel engine, on the other hand, is slower yet still delivers when going at motorway speeds. There is also a four-speed automatic option as an alternative to the standard five-speed manual gearbox.

Overall, the Splash provides an agile ride perfect for city driving. Low-speed manoeuvres can be managed. Power-steering and the car’s tight turning circle assures drivers of smooth motorway cruising. With enough body control and proper grip, the Suzuki Splash will become the car of choice for regular errands and daily drives around the busy, city areas.

The latest Splash sports a well-proportioned aesthetic. No tacky or extremely exaggerated lines or corners are included. Even the interior continues this Suzuki model’s clean and sleek design, as it retains a simple look and intuitive functions. Drivers will have no problem settling into their seats and enjoying the comfort of the design. All-around visibility is assured, promising safety and smooth driving on the road. The interior also provides enough space via the high roofline and the rear seats can fit about two adults.

The Splash guarantees security with its safety kit. All model variations include twin side, curtain, and front airbags. Deadlocks and an engine immobilizer are also included in the safety features. Stability control is also standard in all generations, assuring proper handling in case of certain situations.

Cons

Although there is a 1.0-litre petrol engine available, it’s smarter to get the 1.2-litre version as the former offers the same fuel economy but comes at a steeper price. 

The boot doesn’t provide enough space for long trips, and can only fit the average size of weekly groceries. A little more capacity is added when the rear seats are folded, with the maximum load going up to 573 litres—it’s still not as generous as other boot spaces.

Engine performance could use some improvement. As you approach peak power and torque, the car can readily be driven but higher speeds tend to generate noise. The five-speed manual gearbox also fails to provide a smoother ride for certain conditions on the urban road. But for anyone who can get away with higher speeds, the Suzuki Splash manages quite well. Steering can be difficult as not much feel occurs at times, but turns and different movements are precisely performed.

Overall, the Suzuki Splash is a good investment for car owners seeking a stable vehicle for regular driving conditions. It’s a smart choice for singles or couples who need a reliable vehicle for their work and everyday activities. Don’t bet on the Splash though when it comes to going on long trips. Space can be an issue for both luggage and companions.

Suzuki Splash

                The Japanese multinational automobile manufacturer, Suzuki Motor Corporation, created a city car in the year 2008 which was called the Suzuki Splash. This was created as a five door hatchback and follows an FF layout, or a front engine, front wheel drive layout. The Splash was designed as a successor of the Suzuki Wagon R+, which was also a city car sold in the European market since 1993.

                The Splash was originally a concept car that was displayed at the Paris Auto Show in 2006. This was developed by Suzuki Motor Corporation and Adam Opel AG as their joint project, and it has several available transmissions including a four speed automatic, a five speed manual, and a continuously variable transmission or CVT. A year after the concept car was displayed, the production model was then shown at the Frankfurt Motor Show, allowing it to be below the Suzuki Swift in the European market’s lineup.

                Suzuki Splash is assembled in Esztergom, Hungary and in Manesar, India. Aside from its world premiere at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September 2007, the car was also displayed at the Tokyo Motor Show in the following month. Production and sales of the Splash began in March 2008 in the European continent, and it was seven months later that the car began selling in Japan.
