looks like it has a 155 hp 2.3L DOHC I4, and weighs about 2700 lbs.

hp/weight = .057hp/lb

S-Series TBI SOHC = 85hp, 2400 lbs

hp/weight = .035hp/lb

It'd romp all over a TBI SOHC Saturn. Not that there are very many things that wouldn't...

S-Series MPFI SOHC = 100hp, 2400lbs = .041hp/lb - Aerio wins

S-Series MPFI DOHC = 124hp, 2400lbs = .052hp/lb - getting close, probably a driver's race

Ion (2.2L) - 140hp, 2700lbs = .052hp/lb - close, driver's race

Ion (2.4L) - 170hp, 2700lbs = .063hp/lb - Ion favored, but still close enough to be a driver's race most likely

Kia Spectra EX = 138hp, 2900lbs = .048hp/lb - Aerio wins

yeha, purdue you beat me too it, the aerio is a lot quicker than many people think......there are a couple here in town that have taken a few civics, even tho they arent fast either, but who thinks a suzuki would be a honda, unless they were bikes?

def knew it was an aerio at first glance, but you guys can be so stubborn sometimes..

just like 2000+ hyundai's, the suzuki market of 05+ has really taken off. the cars are solid, have amazing warrentys, and can be pushed repeatedly while remaining reliable. suzuki remains the fastest growing japanese market in the US, just as Hyundai passed Nissan this year for overall sales just behind Toyota (weird, another import brand and probably the most reliable of the bunch). the aerio (although i don't like the styling much) has 155 horses, leather, strong tranny, great stereo, standard AWD, ABS/traction and SPS airbags. for 15 grand, that's a DAMN good steal.

although that thing certainly remains a ricer-wannabee, the standard suzuki line, especially of 05-07 and behind has REALLY stepped up to compete. i'm sure that compared to an ion with the same standards it may be a bit more civil and less sporty or fun to drive but it would probably give GM a run for their money in reliability and options.

i'd be interested to see what our import competitors show up with in the next few years in response to Chevy, Saturn, and others re-badging their foreign cousins. i'd be willing to bet that they'd match it step for step..

i forgot to mention this, but i saw another suziki yesterday, w/ a "suziki works techno" badge on it. apperently, they actually have a high pro. part of the company. i personally think suziki is the new saturn. they are cheap, light weight, faster than ppl think, but also are better quality than most would think as well. some of their coupes look pretty decent, and i think that the just released a little awd turbo car. im not sure about it, but i think its called the sx4. its supposed to be a cool lil car.
