2009 Suzuki SX4 Crossover

Suzuki is still more for making motorcycles than But despite only controlling a percentage of the car market, Suzuki has slowly building credibility by solid econo-cars that much more than expect from the price Prime example: Suzuki has been marketing the SX4 crossover as a Cooper alternative.

  But beyond a “cuteness” does the SX4 really a similar driving experience at a price?

Styling and Interior

SX4 Utility

Presenting the SX4 crossover as a competitor is not an easy sell.  To with, the “crossover” designation is around freely in the auto often with little to no meaning.  Nevertheless, the SX4 contains features not available on the Mini.  For despite the hatchback, the SX4 also has doors.

  That is either a nice of additional space and convenience or a of the sportiness inherent to cars only two.  To its credit, being longer than a Fit, the SX4 does not come off as a hauler nearly as much, but maintains its pocket rocket in appearance.  Have no illusions although the SX4 manages to hold an amount cargo, especially the rear seats folded interior space is not exactly

  Still, in a pinch the back can certainly accommodate passengers as if not better, than the Mini.  most critics are decidedly with the support and general and comfort of the interior, function is of primary importance judging by the of gray and plastic.


The second major and certainly the most impressive, is the all-wheel-drive.  A small button on the engages the AWD to direct up to 50 percent of to the rear wheels either when wheel slippage is or maintains a constant amount of to all wheels the car is in deep snow or Otherwise the car operates in 2WD.

  AWD is only the start of the driving and extras Suzuki provides.  is further enhanced with the of standard stability control, control, four wheel and anti-lock brakes.  Front side impact and side-curtain air as well as16-inch alloy are standard.

  Whatever else may be said the SX4, Suzuki deserves for including such features not on most cars offered in segment.

Speaking of high-end the SX4 also offers a surprisingly thought out navigation system levitates up out of the dash.  While the of the screen is on the smallish side, the itself is easy to use and program.  is provided by a 2-liter, 142 horsepower 4 coupled through a tight manual.  142 horses don’t like much, but it is plenty for the SX4 and are nicely rewarded with mpg in city and highway driving AWD engaged.

  Still, 0-60 mph takes a lengthy 9 seconds.  About a a second longer than the Mini and two and half seconds slower the Cooper S.  Driving in FWD pushes the up slightly.  Those that long despaired at the mediocrity of automotive engines in comparison to motorcycle brethren should be by the SX4.  On the road, SX4 easily through snow with with the AWD engaged.

  The fully-independent offers a smooth if not sporty The relatively tall profile of the SX4 to some of the insecurity in cornering experienced in twisty driving, but not so as to be a major negative.


Starting out a little $15,000, the SX4 is the least expensive AWD in America.  With the navigation an AWD SX4 starts out at $16,789.  An automatic adds $1,100.  Also in the Technology package are steering audio controls and a leather-wrapped wheel.

  A Touring package automatic climate control, start proximity key, side mirrors, six-disc CD change, heated front fog lamps, rear spoiler and a upgraded audio.  Even loaded, an SX4 is still below All Suzuki’s come with a 100,000-mile powertrain warranty.

In the final analysis, comparing the SX4 to a is really not fair to either The Mini is still a more ride, but the SX4 may be the more practical for those that need a more space, AWD or have a budget to shop with.
