2007 Suzuki SX4 Sport 4dr Hatchback AWD (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
Owned my SX4 2 months now and absolutely love it! Came loaded w/all options: heated side mirrors, cruise, 6 CD changer, etc. It's the little "big" car that's a blast to drive. It's small on the outside, but very roomy inside. Love all the headroom! It sits up a bit higher making you feel like you're driving a bigger car. Taken it skiing and with AWD it had no problem in the snow. Gets great gas mileage. Bought it mainly for commuting, but love driving it so much I take it everywhere. Small-looking storage space in the back fools you; I've loaded it down with tons of groceries w/room to spare (w/o folding seats forward). Our skis and gear fit with the seats folded down.
Great head/leg/storage room and it's peppy, get-up-and-go power. Outstanding safety w/all the airbags! It's cute & sexy but far from gutless, plenty of power. Controls are easy to reach and function. Love the "auto" heat/air and cruise control. Mine came loaded w/all the options - love them all!
For long distance travel, an arm rest on the driver's seat would be nice. Wouldn't mind a bigger gas tank except it would probably sacrifice mpg for the extra weight.
