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

great driving solution.
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.
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.

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

four-speed automatic transmission is available as an option
as well. For the manual variety, the fuel consumption rating

in at 26/33 mpg (city/hwy).
