Full Review: Used Car Review - Suzuki SX4 (2010-2015)

See the different versions of this vehicle:

Vehicle Overview
Worldwide, the SX4 is marketed as a sedan or a crossover offered with an AWD system and it replaced the Aerio and Forenza compacts which are long in the tooth during its time. Unlike the sedan, the hatchback stayed until 2015 which was discontinued on that year.

Driving this vehicle is a delight, especially that the driver sits upright complemented with large windows for a good view outside. Passengers, on the other hand, wouldn't receive any poor road modulations that are transmitted plus the tires are comfort biased, a good thing. The standard 1.6 engine is a good cruiser since it does not struggle and is solidly planted plus it benefited from an updated engine.

If Japanese CBUs are known for their well built interiors, this one exposes the opposite side since interior fit and finish is on the cheap side plus some controls have the tendency to snap out. On the plus side, seating position is excellent and is airy for all occupants.

What Should I Get
Similar to its sedan counterpart, the SX4 hatchback is sold in one model. All models have a 110hp 1.6 engine, all power amenities, dual airbags, ABS brakes, CD player with MP3, keyless entry, fog lamps, 60/40 fold rear seat, steering wheel audio controls, side skirts. alarm, auxiliary jack, and fender flares.

How Much Would It Cost Me
Not much problems were reported especially that this vehicle didn't sell much so expect this vehicle to be reliable. One pet peeve is Suzuki's expensive spare parts plus given the fact this vehicle is discontinued already, it may be not that much visible like rivals.
