Suzuki X-90

Well, of all I would like to thank you for the time to read my review on wonderful little car. to all of the people who have read my reviews IM sorry I haven’t writing for along time but I been very busy school and work so I just had time. Now on to the review! My reason for this car was because I have loved small cars is not very common for guys. I like small cute

Before I considered this car I was to import from Europe an MCC which is only 6 and a half long! Well, anyway that fell through due to and EPA regulations I went on the search of small car. Now my next car was the awesome BMW M3 but at $50,000 I wasn’t ready for that bill and I wasn’t going to get a Geo Metro I wanted a stylish small car no one else had.

So one day I was on the net looking up vehicles at the time I was looking at a Vitara and I ran across the X-90! I fell in love. Well, it me about 6 months to find one met my standards.

I wanted Silver, transmission, 4wd, and under miles. Now finding a car made in with less that miles was indeed a chore to say the But after many hours of the web I found one in Newark.

So the next day I right up there and bought it! I it from Performance Motor in Newark. My initial thought was Oh no not a car dealership.

This will be but pressure But I couldn’t have more wrong. The sales at the dealership were more helpful they were negotiable on the price and no pressure at all I recommend their dealership! once I had paid for it and everything off I with my beautiful new Suzuki

* Mechanical Overview

First of all I like to talk about the The 1997 X-90 features a 1.6 Single Overhead Cam, 16 Engine that develops 95 @ 5600 RPM and 98 LB-FT of torque @ Now these figures may seem low in to the high powered engines in larger SUV’s however you consider you only have to seven and a half feet of car only weighs 2500 this is a lot of power.

Now IM not saying its a car but you will have more enough power to get around I’ll be honest I have a few Civics and Integras around and beat them! Its all because the car is so in comparison to other SUV’s. Now for on the engine.

The engine has electronic fuel injection and an electronic system. The car also features a manual overdrive transmission or a Automatic transmission w/lockup converter. This car also has recalculating ball steering, front disc/rear drum front MacPherson Struts, Springs and a stabilizer bar, rigid axle with trailing arm and wishbone suspension coil springs..How does equate into the over all

Well, keep on reading and you find out. Last but not is the body design which is with chassis frame all of Suzuki’s SUV’s.

* Interior

Well, before I the car I had never been in one and I was thinking myself being 6’2 I am gonna fit. I thought I be crunched up really badly in the Economy seats on most But when I sat in it and actually got a feel for the car I was

The designers at Suzuki did a wonderful job on the design. If I slide my seat all the way I cant even reach the That’s how much room is in terms of leg room!

I actually to drive with the seats up more in my X-90 that I do in my Benz 280. As far as headroom its equally as impressive. I have 4-6 inches of head room my height.

This car provides than enough room for As far as elbow room goes is an abundance of it found in the X-90. Not have I had to fight over arm or not had room to shift or anything of a passenger.

Now onto the interior and ergonomics. As far as ergonomics go everything is The steering wheel is in the perfect and all immediate controls are very reachable. Other controls as A/C and Stereo controls are also reached.

The interior design good. No sharp angles or any odd just a good looking with no flaws. The interior is and comfortable for short runs to the or long trips like I did from Newark to Asheville, Carolina.

Overall Suzuki did a great job on the of the car!

* Exterior

Now my favorite of the X-90. I’ll be honest the styling is way out! But that’s why I it. I was surprised that this car made it into production and just remain a concept

The exterior is well rounded no angles like the new Mustang or curves like a Hyundai (nothing against those) its a new stylish design that not people have seen The small factory spoiler a sporty touch as does the airdam. The tail lights are integrated into the cars and feature clear turn (import tuner rage). the mirrors are tear drop and accent the cars curves as the headlights very well.

The clearance is very good the type of car this is. I would say its in the of 5-7 inches! That’s a lot for this of car!

And my favorite part of the is the T-Top design. Both of the top are removable and easily fit behind the or in the trunk and will provide you open air driving fun.

* Driving

This car is a blast to in urban areas due to two major First of all its size and secondly its economy. Its size is great for small spaces. You know I mean. That spot you saw was just a little to small for car?

THAT ONE! car fits in the smallest spaces. In it is legal to park it NOSE TO and it actually fits! Its great to be to park no matter where you are and not to drive around for half an looking for a parking spot.

Suzuki C 90

As for fuel economy I would say I about 25-30 MPG City because IM light footed in areas. I basically fill my car up a week and that’s that. I get about 320-350 miles per from my X-90.Even when IM in a and lead footed I usually get at 20 mpg if not more. Another point is this car is very good potholes and imperfections in the road.

its short length you really feel much of them. IM not it rides like a BMW but you don’t it nearly as much as in a Honda

* Highway Driving

This jewel really shines on the It is limited to 90mph which low but how often do you really go that Now IM not sure why it is limited to that because in 5th gear at 90 mph it is only about 3000rpm and it redlines at 7000. Anyway as far as expansion strips and other imperfections car runs with the best. You feel very much on due to its short wheelbase.

Now I know a lot of you car experts beg to differ. However in the reason you don’t feel even though it is short is the suspension is not totally stiff it is soft so it absorbs most of the Handling on the highway can get addictive.

signal to get over and the person you to get infront of speeds up? or ever see a in traffic you could ALMOST fit if you had a few more feet? Well, this car you can do it! Just zip right in no problem at all. You can easily see all you because the nose and rear are short.

This car also isn’t a Metro as that above 70 it corner. This little toy can at any speed I have had mine up to 90 in a 85 :) and it didn’t feel unstable or like that it just right along. As far as wind

I have crossed multiple with wind warnings and and I’ve never felt any with wind in this car it swerve or anything like it is perfectly predictable.

* 4X4 Driving

I had a whole lot of experience in 4wd but the day I flew up to buy it it 8 inches in Newark. Needless to say I happy cause driving my new car in where people could run it I was very worried..Well as I pulled out of the I popped it into 4wd. The came on and I was off.

At first I was because it was so small I was worried traction but as I started getting confident I could almost like it was dry! The 4wd on here is The whole way back from I only slid once and was crossing a bridge at 65 mph in about an of snow. The bridge had iced and I was on the throttle and it revved up a little bit but I lost control. I purposely into parking lots to try to get it to but in 4wd it just wont slide!

It like glue! I love the 4wd IM I was picky and looked for one with it.

* Who Buy

I think the idea buyer be a college student looking for a inexpensive and fun car to drive or someone for a unique runabout car to have in to another vehicle. This be the car you actually take into and not have to struggle for parking and its fuel economy you wouldn’t to fill it up once a day. good buyer would be a looking to be different as I was.

I always get stopped at redlights and from people saying is that or That’s such a car its really fun!

* Overall

Overall I have to say this is my car. I have driven and I mean LOTS of cars. ranging from a Geo Metro to a 911 GT2 ( in germany) and I like this IM not saying I don’t like because they make cars but I find my X-90 practical, useful, lovable and a lot unique than a Porsche.

How Porches can carry a months in 6 inches of snow and still no dents or damage afterwards. ) I would highly recommend little car to anybody that can one. They are very in production numbers but they are out As a matter of fact there is one for on EBAY right now so if you are interested a look!

As Always thanks for my review and I hope you will my others and future ones. from DYQ685
