The Suzuki SX4 was developed by a collaborative effort between the Japanese manufacturer Suzuki and Fiat, an Italian car manufacturer. As such, the SX4 comes with the luxuries of a European car and the affordability of a Japanese car. It’s alternatively known as the SX4 S-CROSS and SX4-CROSSOVER in various markets. It has been in production since 2006 and is available both a saloon and a hatchback. It joined Suzuki’s lineup of compact SUVs that include the Escudo and Jimny.
The SX4 is not very popular in Kenya and it’s been overshadowed by it’s competitors such as the Nissan Dualis, Mitsubishi RVR, Subaru XV and Nissan Juke. Nonetheless, the SX4 is a well built car that boasts of superb safety ratings and excellent fuel economy.
On the outside, it features a sporty exterior and a body kit that gives it an aggressive SUV look. The sharp headlights and well crafted alloy rims leave no doubt of its performance credentials.
The dashboard is minimalistic but yet modern with an easy to use touchscreen infotainment system. The legroom decent on all rows and passengers are treated to a silent and well insulated cabin.
The second generation SX4 is powered by two engine options; a 1.6-liter M16A petrol engine and a 1.6-liter D16AA turbo diesel engine. These are linked to either a 6-Speed Automatic Transmission or a CVT transmission and available in 2WD and 4WD(ALLGRIP)
