Its Suzuki again guys! the Japanese will attempt to cash in on Australia’s all time love affair with small SUVs by applying the ‘Crossover’ name to its facelifted SX4 hatchback range, which continues to be the only small car available in both front- and all-wheel drive forms.
The SX4’s 112kW/190Nm 2.0-litre petrol engine is unchanged, as well as the standard six-speed manual gearbox and CVT auto, while AWD models continue to direct up to 50 per cent of engine torque to the rear wheels in both 4WD Lock and 4WD Auto modes.
Apart from cruise control and Bluetooth connectivity, all SX4 models come standard with six airbags, electronic stability control, ABS brakes, a leather-clad steering wheel, trip computer, power windows/mirrors and an eight-speaker sound system with auxiliary input and speed-sensing volume control.
In addition to the touch-screen navigation system, S versions add 16-inch alloy wheels, remote keyless entry and starting, digital climate-control air-conditioning, front foglights and, for CVT vehicles, steering wheel-mounted gearshift paddles.
Extra standard features across the range include cruise control and Bluetooth connectivity, while top-shelf ‘S’ variants gain a new touch-screen satellite-navigation unit with Bluetooth, voice activation and USB connectivity.
The SX4’s intelligent all-wheel drive (i-AWD) system is also carried over for the 2013 model year allowing drivers to switch between 2WD, 4WD auto and 4WD lock modes via a console-mounted rocker switch.
Two new colors, Plasma Yellow and Boost Blue, will add to the updated looks of the 2013 model year Suzuki SX4 Crossover, and also SX4 hatch range features new front-end styling, new alloy wheels, new seat fabrics, mirror-mounted indicators, all this will be available when it arrives in dealerships this month end.
