The Next Generation Suzuki SX4 Manages to Impress
|   Tuesday, June 25, 2013
The latest face lifted Suzuki SX4 is finally here. The modifications made to this vehicle are more mechanical than cosmetic and performance figures have increased along with better CO2 emission and fuel efficiency. This vehicle features a better chassis, better dynamics, enhanced interior and finish quality along with overall better equipment and trim levels. The SX4 is larger than its predecessor and hence is a potent rival to the Nissan Qashqai.


The SX4 derives its name from the S Cross Concept which was revealed by the firm a few months back. This model of the SX4 will be available in the market fall 2015 and the badge has been maintained tom give this vehicle its authenticity. Available engine options include a 1.6 liter diesel and petrol unit, mated to a six speed automatic or manual transmission system.

16 inch alloy rims are available as standard while cruise control and a standard air conditioner are available on every variant. The SX4 is also the first vehicle on the face of the earth to sport a double panoramic roof. The rear section of the SX4 features the tail lamp of the Swift. Although this vehicle cannot claim to be the best in the market, it has potential to be among the favorites.

At the first glance, the new SX4 is not as muscular as its predecessor and the engine displaces the maximum amount of torque at the 2000 RPM range. The engine however redlines above this range. The SX4 handles just right and the overall balance of the vehicle is quite impressive. Body roll is also absent till a point and this enhances the way this car drives.

Overall body control is better than that of the Nissan Qashqai and handling is also expected to exceed that of the Qashqai. The Qashqai has managed to setup a benchmark for cross over comparisons and the SX4 has the potential to break any such benchmarks. The SX4 begs to be pushed hard and has the potential to treat over most terrains. It is a sturdy off roader as well and can be taken over soft road conditions effortlessly as well.

The interior is quite comfortable and Suzuki has done a great effort to maintain the aesthetics of the cabin intact. If you are familiar with the Swift, the SX4 will not come in as a surprise and practically both vehicles share similar trim levels. This car is also near perfect ergonomically and has various driving and infotainment options which enhance the general feel of driving around in this car.

The SX4 is the perfect family off roader and if you are willing to pay the price, this car should do you justice. Suzuki is known for quality, refinement and reliability and the SX4 serves all with equal precision. Priced at £22,000, the SX4 is a complete deal. The engine revs well in every range while attention has been paid while working on every minute detail. Fuel efficient and comfortable, the SX4 offers the best deal within its price range.
