Suzuki’s SX4 is a distinctive five-door hatchback that blends the characteristics of sporty compacts exemplified by the Swift, with those of lightweight SUVs such as the Grand Vitara, to create an exciting small car alternative. The popular model has been revised for 2010 with numerous styling and interior changes as well as an introduction of a cleaner and more powerful 1.6-litre petrol engine.


The resulting ‘sport X-over’ combines responsive driving dynamics, 4x4 capability, high levels of practicality and styling that suggests a freestyle approach to life.

The UK line-up offers two engine options – one diesel and one petrol. A new 120PS 1.6 litre VVT petrol engine is available in either SZ3 or SZ4 2WD (front-wheel drive) format or as a 4x4 SZ5 model with selectable/automatic four-wheel drive. The 1.6-litre DDiS will be available in SZ4 trim from April 2010, together with the SZ5 4X4 petrol.

The Suzuki SX4 is styled to look good in any setting. Fusing the dynamism of SUVs with the elegance of passenger cars gives poise and presence beyond the model’s compact size. The 2010 model features a redesigned front bumper and grill together with new design 16-inch alloy wheels for SZ4 and SZ5 models.

Three model grades are available: SZ3; SZ4 and SZ5 which is available for the 4x4 petrol model. All models have a bold SUV appearance with wheel arch extensions, side under protection mouldings and front and rear skid plates.

For the interior, the lower centre dashboard panel has been revised and incorporates a new display; housing the audio, air conditioning and other controls. On SZ4 models the large dials of the fully automatic air conditioning have ring lights, which make them easier to see and use, while adding to the overall refined quality. The new design instrument cluster incorporates a driver information display for average and instantaneous fuel consumption, fuel range and outside temperature. The steering wheel audio controls are now illuminated for added convenience.

On board refinement and comfort is enhanced in the latest model with the fitment of cushioned armrests in the doors; additional sound insulation throughout the cabin together with new design carpets; all helping lower NVH levels.

On the outside; a larger engine under shield cover together with improved transmission damping and increased rigidity of body parts have also been incorporated.
