Introduction Of LIANASuzuki first offered the Liana for sale as a 2001 model. It was a direct replacement to the Suzuki Esteem sedan (alternately known as the Suzuki Baleno). The Liana was offered as a traditional four-door sedan as well as a five-door hatchback with an interior space notable for being larger than most compact cars. The Liana featured a front engine/front-wheel drive configuration
The Suzuki Liana was a compact car. Its wheelbase was 97.6 inches and the length of the car was 166.5 inches in the hatchback configuration, 171.3 inches as a sedan. The hatchback was also 61 inches tall as opposed to the sedan's 60.4-inch height. Both versions of the Liana were 66.5 inches wide and featured a modestly sized 13.2-gallon fuel tank.
Engines and Power
Suzuki offered the Liana with a 1.3-liter inline four-cylinder engine, as well as a larger 1.6-liter version. A 145-horsepower 2.0-liter engine was available in models sold in North America as the Suzuki Aerio. All Lianas came standard with a five-speed manual transmission, with an option of a four-speed automatic gearbox. Choosing the automatic transmission also gave buyers the option of all-wheel drive.
Suzuki overhauled the Liana in 2004, offering it with a new 1.4-liter, 89-horsepower diesel engine that featured a turbocharger and direct injection. The Liana's body was also restyled to give it a more modern look. This version of the Liana became an attractive option to customers seeking a low-cost auto, as it was priced significantly below other family-oriented compact cars, especially in the European market.
Despite the popularity of the Liana (especially the all-wheel drive version), Suzuki began to move it aside to make room for newer models starting in 2007. For the 2007 model year, the Liana was available only as a sedan, and the SX4 hatchback went on sale. In 2008 the Liana was discontinued altogether with the arrival of the similar SX4 sedan
Marketing mix of Suzuki Liana:
Product Price Promotion Place.
Suzuki Liana is available in three different variants i.e. 1.3 LXI, 1.2 RXI and 1.6 eminent. Although this car has all modern safety and comfort features but failed to make success in market. The main reasons of its failure are its ordinary looking exterior design and high price. Available in 7 different colors this sedan car is one of the most badly designed cars of Suzuki Motors.
Classification Of LIANA:
Liana takes you out of the ordinary and into a realm where your imagination and sense of adventure have free reign. On one level, it’s everything you’d expect of a Suzuki: stylish, immaculately engineered ad uncommonly versatile.
On another level, it’s something entirely different, a car that in style, dimensions
and comfort will inspire you to see every day as an open door to a new age.
