2008 Suzuki SX4 Crossover 4dr Hatchback AWD w/Touring Pkg (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I purchased this car for my first car, and it is pretty impressive considering the price. At first, it felt very slightly underpowered, considering that I was used to driving a car with 260 horsepower, but in reality, it isn't bad. The handling on it is amazing. It takes turns quickly and the tires stick to the road well. I live in Pennsylvania, and the traction control and AWD make it a very good car for snow. Also, the touring package comes with a 9-speaker 6-CD changer, which sounds amazing. It is probably one of the best car stereos I've heard. The only small downside is I have only been getting 20 mpg, but that's using full throttle a lot. Overall I am very satisfied with this purchase.


Best Features

AWD Traction Control CD changer Handling


Worst Features

Make the gas tank larger than 11 gallons

2008 Suzuki SX4 Road TRIP Ed 4dr Hatchback w/Touring Pkg (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I bought this car for my wife who had just learned to drive (foreigner) and she absolutely loves it. It is spacious for a small car with plenty of room in the trunk for a full size suit case laid down flat. The car lacks power which they advertise as more than a MINI, but you really have to put your foot into it or use gear 1 to launch it and to merge onto Interstate traffic. Radio is sufficient (4 speaker single Cd player) Head room is great for tall people we are not AWD is not perm. but can be locked in as long as driving below 30mph. I had a 350z before this so this car can not be compared to but is still funish to drive.


Best Features

AWD or sense of it when driving in harsh weather, mostly rain in TN. Cheap to purchase as long as you do not get the sunroof and upgraded wheels and NAV system


Worst Features

More power, bigger gas tank, permanent AWD

2008 Suzuki SX4 Sport 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


Review

This is the very first brand new vehilce purchase I have ever made. I am quite disappointed. The exterior paint is "cheap & sensitive" (scratches down to the metal extremely easily, I have had to pay for protectant because of bird droppings marking it). The interior "plastic" (dash, doors)scratch extremely easily, and the upholstery snags like mad as well. The little windows on the front sides create blind spots. The window sticker when I bought it said avg mpg 30 highway and I have not ever gotten above 25-26mpg. Small gas tank. Cruise control is not standard neither are arm rests. Not terribly comfortable. Hard to handle in strong winds. Back seat not much leg room. Not "family" car


Best Features

Dash design is okay. Accessable controls. Car has a good sporty look. Trunk space is pretty good.


Worst Features

Better gas mileage, bigger tank. Better quality paint. Better quality upholstery. Plastic that does not scratch so easily. Cruise control and arm rest standard. Folding back seats. More interior leg room. A way to have items on passenger seat without having to buckle them in b/c of airbag alarm.

2008 Suzuki SX4 Sport 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


Review

My Ocean Blue SX4 Sport now has 16000 miles. Its been very comfortable, fairly reliable, and still gets looks and compliments on its styling. Rear seat needs to fold down. At first, I thought that the trunk was huge, but the lack of a fold-down rear seat is a huge pain. Rear seat legroom is tight, and you will need BOTH hands on the wheel on windy days. The car is very sensitive to crosswinds, especially at high speeds. Fuel mileage has averaged 26.7 mpg in mostly interstate driving, which is good, not great.


Best Features

Styling, comfortable for 4 people as long as the people in the back aren't too long-legged, really good handling, stability control, anti-lock brakes, all the airbags make me feel secure, and has been pretty reliable.


Worst Features

Larger fuel tank and increased highway fuel economy; the car desperately needs a five speed automatic. Split fold-down rear seat would be a huge improvement w/more legroom too. Center armrest should be standard! Interior plastics could be softer to touch and higher quality. Larger dealer network!!
