Good awd value

Vehicle: 2007 Suzuki SX4 Sport 4dr Hatchback AWD (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

Nice little car, particularly in snow. Lots of leg and head room for the size. 30 mpg hwy, decent for AWD. Good fit and finish - very tight for an eco car. After 8 months, water leaking from A/C on to the passenger floor/carpeting diagnosed as "cracked cowl" per the dealer; fixed in a day. Revs at nearly 4000RPM in 5th gear at hwy cruising speeds; geared way too high - needs o/d or 6th gear; would help hwy fuel econ and keep the noise down. Seats lack back support- no lumbar option even on high end model. 10 gallon tank is too small; commuting 25K/yr, feels like I'm always stopping for gas. Hopefully long term reliability will be decent like earlier Suzuki's.

Vehicle: 2007 Suzuki SX4 Sport 4dr Hatchback AWD (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

My 5M Sport averages at least 29 mpg. Try to find another AWD car that can match that. And the AWD is for real. I have blazed trails through 6+ inches of snow before the plows have come through. I have pushed the limits in empty snow covered parking lots and I was incredibly impressed. The ground clearance isn't high enough for any serious off-roading, but the AWD grips like claws on the road.

I commute to work everyday and this car makes for a great ride. The trip is not at all highway and the gas mileage is not horrible, but not what I expected. The features that came with the sport model were one of the selling points. You usually pay a lot more for these options. The looks are deceiving from the outside. Plenty of room, even for larger people. This car is very sporty looking also. The price is great for an AWD.

I'm lovin' it

Vehicle: 2007 Suzuki SX4 Sport 4dr Hatchback AWD (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

No regrets - it's a pleasure and a pal. I drive 22 miles each way to work, along very twisting, hilly roads in the northeast. Haven't tried it in deep sub-zero conditions yet, but ice, rain, snow, fog, heat, etc., have all been here, and we've done that with no problems at all.

Vehicle: 2007 Suzuki SX4 Sport 4dr Hatchback AWD (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

Follow up to earlier review of 2/11. Now have little over 5,000 miles on SX4. Gas mileage 95% in town, no stop and go has been 25-28. 28 requires low rpm shifts and some coasting techniques. Solid build, no rattles. A/C works well for 90+ heat. No mechanical issues. Has done very well SOFT offroading up sloped grassy hillsides around baseball parking area. If teen takes off to school with this car I will very likely replace it with another SX4, but I might look at sedan to be released. I do not often require more storage than basic trunk would provide.

Just picked up a 2007 SX4 Sport in May of this year. Saw it first at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit in January, and from that moment I sat in it I knew I had to have this car. The styling is quirky without being too outlandish. The interior craftmanship and ergonomics are great for such a low priced vehicle. I live in Michigan and won't fear this year's winter driving with the AWD that I now have available to me. I would highly recommend this car to anyone looking for a stylish and well equipped alternative to the sudden deluge of subcompacts now being sold.

What's New for 2007

The 2007 Suzuki SX4 is an all-new small hatchback. It replaces last year's Aerio SX hatchback and features a standard all-wheel-drive system and a powerful four-cylinder engine.


If you're interested in a small and inexpensive new car, 2007 is a great year for you. In response to higher fuel prices and changing consumer tastes, automakers have released a bevy of new subcompacts, many of them featuring upscale features and truly useful interiors. Of this new brood, Suzuki's new SX4 offers a few distinct features that make it worthy of your attention.

The 2007 Suzuki SX4, which replaces last year's larger and more expensive Aerio SX, is an all-new four-door hatchback. For power, Suzuki equips the SX4 with a reworked version of the 2.3-liter engine in the Aerio sedan. Displacing 2.0 liters, this four-cylinder is rated to produce 143 horsepower and 136 pound-feet of torque. The Honda Fit and Toyota Yaris don't even top 110 hp, while the Nissan Versa offers only 122.

In the subcompact segment, the SX4's main calling card is its standard all-wheel drive. This three-mode system offers drivers a choice of front-wheel drive only, an "automatic" mode that splits the power on the fly, or full-lock AWD at speeds up to 36 mph. There's not enough torque to make it much of a performance enhancement on dry pavement, but it should come in handy for those living in the snowbelt.

For those on a tight budget, Suzuki happily points out that the SX4 is the least expensive new car you can buy with all-wheel drive. Thankfully, that's not the only positive attribute to the 2007 Suzuki SX4. It also has a slick interior design, sufficient features and, thanks to its larger overall size, plenty of room. The biggest negative to this vehicle is probably its weight. Being a few hundred pounds heavier than the competition negates the advantage of the SX4's larger engine. It also hurts fuel economy to a large degree. With that in mind, we think the majority of buyers will be better off in the Fit, our top choice for this segment. But the SX4's appeal is apparent. For those wanting an alternative, especially one with all-wheel drive, the SX4 is a good choice.

Body Styles, Trim Levels, and Options

The 2007 Suzuki SX4 is a small four-door hatchback. Standard features include 16-inch wheels, keyless entry, air-conditioning, a CD/MP3 player and full power features. For the SX4 Sport trim, Suzuki adds automatic climate control, cruise control, heated outside mirrors and a SmartPass keyless entry and engine-start feature. The Sport also has a premium audio system with a six-disc CD changer, a subwoofer and steering-wheel-mounted audio controls.

Powertrains and Performance

Power comes from a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine rated at 143 hp and 136 lb-ft of torque. It's connected to a standard five-speed manual transmission or an optional four-speed automatic. All SX4s are equipped with all-wheel drive. Fuel economy for the automatic, at 24 mpg city/30 mpg highway, is significantly below average for the subcompact class.


The 2007 Suzuki SX4 comes standard with antilock disc brakes, a tire-pressure monitor, front seat side airbags and head-protecting side curtain airbags for all outboard passengers. Stability control, an unusual feature for this class, comes standard on the SX4 Sport but is not available on the base model.

Interior Design and Special Features

The SX4 has one of the best-looking cabins in the segment. It's a simple layout with large, three-dial climate control knobs that sit just below a compact, well-labeled CD stereo. The analog gauges are easy to read, the switchgear feels good and the materials look better than you might expect. In back is a 60/40-split rear seat that can be lowered and tumbled forward. With the rear seat stowed, 38 cubic feet of cargo room is available.

Driving Impressions

Though it has a powerful engine for its class, the Suzuki SX4 is no hot rod. A bulky curb weight negates any advantage and acceleration is no better than other, less powerful competitors. The extra pounds help give the SX4 a smooth, refined ride quality, however, and the standard antilock disc brakes don't seem to mind the extra heft. Big bumps barely upset the suspension and the sizable 16-inch tires provide solid grip.
