2009 Suzuki SX4: Mirror, Mirror
October 26, 2009
Thanks to its low beltline, big greenhouse and useful little port-type windows by the A-pillar, the SX4 offers pretty good visibility. That might be enough for most manufacturers, but Suzuki takes things one step further by including the hugest side mirrors this side of a Dodge Sprinter. These massive slabs of glass are the antithesis of the skinny little side mirrors seen on cars like the new Camaro -- form-over-function mirrors that look stylish, but don't offer much acreage for viewing purposes. Sure, the SX4's mirrors are a bit on the homely side -- they're the side-mirror equivalent of dad jeans in that respect -- but they're a pleasure to use, and offer a wonderfully expansive picture of the road behind you.
