The little blue monster still

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

My last review was on 6-2-2009, the vehicle has 38,000 miles with original tires, apart from regular maintenance, no mechanical problems at all, brakes are still the originals. People are still asking about the vehicle and its performance. Recommend it to anyone that wants to buy a small reliable and cheap cross over station wagon type. If you want it to have more power and burn front tires get a tornado.

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

After driving a 2000 Suzuki, Baleno, 4x4 Wagon in Russia for 7 years without any problems, we decided to give Suzuki our business again when we moved to the USA. The one which caught our eye was the SX4. We purchased the last 2007 on the lot. Immediately we were getting very good gas mileage with highs as much as 38 mpg. Around town usually we get 29.7 on the average. We take very long trips with our work and always end up rested and with gas money still in our pockets. In snow we have not lost traction even one time. The 2WD, AWD and Four Wheel Drive options are great. We have 56,000 already without a hitch. I would buy again and recommend this car to any one.

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

Owned and drove 2000 Suzuki Baleno 4X4 Wagon in Russia for 7 years w/o one problem so I wanted to try Suzuki again in States. Purchased our 2007 Suzuki SX4 immediately after arriving in States. Best gas mileage is 38 and averages town & country 28.9. Comfortable on long trips and we know long trips. Have had two years and have 52,000 miles. Would buy another Suzuki and do recommend to anyone wanting a four wheel drive car with performance, good gas mileage, and dependability then go Suzuki SX4. We constantly have folks coming over to talk to us about our SX4 wondering what it is and how do we like it. Always give a good report.

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

We have owned this car since 2/2007. It is our 1st Japanese vehicle and we like it very much. It is great in the snow and quite comfortable on long trips. We even tow our two jetskis several hundred miles on vacation without a problem. The cons are the fuel mileage and poor quality interior. I would buy this model again but would like to see several improvements.




Maintenance costs

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

My wife and I were looking for a small car with reasonable mileage and comfortable seats. Mileage is constant 27mpg with commuter driving 110 milies per day. Ride great for small car and the seats are better than some larger cars. My wife at 5'5" has hard time with view at front left due to bad blind spot. Here's the rub, needed first break job with rotors(no warning) at 42k (not bad). Could not get dealer appt. and had metal on metal so we had our local garage do the job. None of the parts are available after market and the front pads alone cost $200. With rotors the front brakes were more than $400.00. AWD maintenance is also greatly out of line with other makes.

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

I love my SX4. This car is very roomy, comfortable and fun to drive. Looks great standing still or moving fast. Last week we had more than a foot of soft snow in my 1/4 mile driveway. I covered the lower grille opening to protect the radiator, locked in the AWD and plowed out. Had snow rolling over the hood up to the windshield but the SX4 kept going. Is that great or what? Visibility is excellent for touring the countryside because of the large glass and upright seating. Stops on a dime. Parks anywhere. Climbs hills without roads. Very wind stable for a compact vehicle.

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.

Introduction

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.

Safety

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.
