Suzuki SX4 Review

The Suzuki SX4 was first introduced in 2006 and came out as a frontrunner during its first auto show. The model not only stood out in a wide range of aspects but also garnered Suzuki an image transformation. The SX4 was also released in partnership with Fiat, having come a redesigned form of the Sedici. The vehicle continues to be in demand thanks to improvements based on the Swift’s platforms.

Pros

The design delivers for the most part, with the SX4 boasting of a low waistline, a plastic wheelarch for offroad ability, and triangular quarterlights on the front doors. Its stance can be described as poised and ready for action, giving off a purposeful aesthetic from its tipped forward and four square structure. Improvements have also been made from the previous generation: 2012 saw the introduction of 16-inch alloy wheels in topline models and changes made in the grille and front bumper. Similarities to the Swift can be found in the MacPherson strut at the front, the monocoque bodyshell, and a rear twist beam suspension.

The interior retains that family theme Suzuki is known for. But the SX4 stands out by sporting a more functional design and bolder colors. The three-dial binnacle found in front of the driver, stereo controls, and multi-switch heater are all conveniently located at the central console. The metallic edged rotary ventilation controls add a classy touch to the overall interior.

Upright seating provides a comfortable experience and the legroom spacious enough for four adults.

You’re guaranteed a smooth drive on the SX4, where lightness characterizes the steering and responses to each shift swift and accurate. If you decide to go auto, you can enjoy the combination of ESP with the on-demand all-wheel drive. High-speed stability is another major plus, along with ride comfort that can withstand small bumps. There’s also a wide variety of options for the four-wheel drive models: from  auto as the default for all types of weather, lock for tougher conditions, or the front-wheel drive for economy. The SX4’s smooth work continues right below, as selecting auto lets you detect shifts between front and rear wheel speeds. The electronically controlled nine-plate clutch pack is able to drive the rear wheels when required.

Cons

Unfortunately the interior compromises space in certain areas. The passengers’ areas could use more shoulder and elbow room. The boot is limited by its 270-litre capacity. And even with the rear seats folded, it’s still not enough for a bigger load.

Performance is a matter of preference. Since the SX4 is intended to be a soft roader rather than a mud plugger, you can only expect either a 1.6-litre petrol or 2.0-litre engine. The 115lbft and 118bhp offers better refinement, but high-speed overtakes still require shifting into a few more gears. The 2.0-litre DDiS engine packs in 236lb ft of torque and 133 bhp, but tends to lag in time when going into 62 mph. The petrol engine, however, can reach 62mph from zero in just 10.2 seconds.

The SX4 is a smart investment for families looking to enjoy sleek design and stable performance.

Suzuki SX4

                The Japanese multinational automobile manufacturer, Suzuki Motor Corporation, has developed a compact car which was produced since the year 2006. This was called the Suzuki SX4, and it was created as a successor of the Suzuki Aerio and Suzuki Forenza, which are both compact cars. This is assembled in several places including Kosai and Sagara in Shizuoka, Japan as well as in Indonesia, Hungary, and India.

                The SX4 is a five door hatchback or a five door sedan that has a front engine, front wheel drive or front engine, four wheel drive layout. This compact car is designed by Italdesign Giugiaro S.p.A., which is a company based in Italy. The name SX4 stands for “Sports X-over 4 all seasons”, and was originally created for the European market, though this then became marketed internationally.

                Several versions of the Suzuki SX4 were made available. This includes the SX4 Sport, which was the sedan model that was displayed at the New York Auto Show in 2007. The American Motors used the designation SX4 for its liftback model. The features of the car developed year after year – in 2008, Suzuki came to include the All Wheel drive, power door locks, CD player with MP3 compatibilty, and anti lock brakes; in 2009 it introduced the GPS navigations system, and in 2010 an electronic stability program, airbags, and anti lock braking system.
