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.
