Suzuki Every Wagon Review: “The mini version of regular-sized minivans” by Naoto Shimazaki

It’s the first time in nine years and six months that the Every Wagon has been updated. Nonetheless, it’s quite difficult to see the distinction between the previous generation and the new generation model. This might be because of the previous generation’s excellent reputation.

When I test drove the car, I felt that the changes made to its ‘insides’ were 10 years worth of updates. It has a stable running performance because of its suspension system. The wheelbase is longer by 30mm, which gives it a solid and flat ride. It also has cornering stability. The tires have excellent steering response and offers a solid performance. Hence, it gave me the impression that this is the ‘mini version’ of a regular-sized minivan.

I test drove the turbo version. Although I was the only person in the car when I test drove it, I didn’t encounter any issues with the engine mated to a four-speed AT. The engine responds accordingly to the situation; hence, it can perform when needed.

I am also satisfied with the cabin’s quality. The excellent finishing touches of the operation switches, glove compartment and carpet will make you realize how current kei cars offer high level of quality. The seats are also comfortable. The steering wheel can also be adjusted.

It has so many useful storage pockets that you may forget which compartment you have placed your things. Moving the tail lamps to the bumper made the door opening wider and inserting hooks created luggage space, enabling it to have excellent utility.
