Overall a nice, fun, 4WD SUV

ReviewMy father and I co-own this car, bought new, to handle the treacherous roads of Pittsburgh in the winter.
It handles very sporty, good tire grip, great in turns.
Mileage was a dismal 16 MPG in Pa., but since moving to Florida, now getting 27.6 MPG, but all level driving.
Feels roomy up front, tight in rear, and more cargo room than a sedan, but not as good as it could be (fold flat rear seat needed!).
Peppy around town and on highway, CVT does a good job.
Interior is rather bland and radio quality is poor.
But my biggest gripe is regarding the front "A" pillars... causes DANGEROUS blind spots.
Poor design on that, and must lean forward and back to see around them.
Seats are hard too.
Best FeaturesGREAT 4WD system; one of the last remaining set ups that the driver can control if the car is in FWD, AWD (auto) or locked into 4WD. Engine runs well, MPG good for 4WD SUV: 37.6 overall with CVT. Looks unique and cute and like the front seat armrests.
Worst FeaturesThin out those "A" pillars; create bad blind spots! More road clearance for 4WD models, better contoured seats, and fold-flat rear seats as seen in previous year SX4's. Also need a Bluetooth stereo system with voice command for safety. Overall... a really nice car for the price; too bad Suzuki bailed on the U.S. Finding service and parts is becoming an issue!
