Maruti Suzuki SX4

Maruti Suzuki SX4 available in 1 variant

SX4 (Indian version) is a premium sedan developed by car maker giant Maruti Suzuki India Limited. The car was first launched in the year 2007 and since then has been one of the best selling sedans of the company. Originally it was designed by Girogetto Giugiaro’s Italdesign studio as a crossover and was developed jointly by Japanese automaker Suzuki and Italian automaker Fiat. It has been in the international market since 2006. In some European markets the car is also being sold as Fiat Sedici.

Since its launch the car has bagged several awards like Viewer`s Choice Award by NDTV Profit Car & Bike Awards 2008, Most Appealing Midsized car by J D Power Asia Pacific APEAL Study – 2009 and many more to count. This wide and broad body designed car is today competing with the best in class cars like; Volkswagen Vento, Hyundai Verna, Honda City and Chevrolet Aveo. A new face-lifted version of SX4 was launched in 2009 with an engine powered by VVT technology and then the diesel version was launched in 2011. A newer face-lifted version is expected to arrive anytime soon.

SX4 comes with an impressive exterior, comfortable interior and sporty drive performance. The car reflects Maruti’s influence by the European design trends. The first noticeable thing in the car is the feeling of sitting on high seats which helps in getting a clear view of the things in-front of the car. The car has very minor changes as compared to the previous SX4 and includes new upholstery, gear lever in automatic variant and wooden finish door mounted power window console. The music system has a new USB port option. Front seat headrests are very big in size but the rear leg room gives a bit cramped up feeling due to less leg space. The rear windscreen is also a bit small. Leather seats are optional in the top-end ZXi variant. The car has an Automatic air-conditioning with attractive matt-silver dials and steering-wheel-mounted controls for the music system in the Zxi variant. It also has space to store a bottle in all four door pockets.

The safety feature of the car includes seat-belts, child-lock rear doors, side impact protection beams, an intelligent Computerized Anti-Theft System (iCATS), which when fitted into an automobile prevents its engine from running unless the correct key is used and front door-lock canceler. Other safety features like airbags, 3-point Emergency Locking Retractor (ELR) front seat belt pre-tensioners and force limiter, keyless entry, ABS and Emergency Brake-force Distribution (EBD) are present only in the Zxi variant.

Moving towards the exterior, SX4 is one of the best looking sedans in the market. The car is 4,490 mm in length and 1,735 mm in width. The design and style ensures a balanced and quite muscular look for the car. The huge headlamps, sport mesh grille and rounded fog lamps catches the attention immediately. The 10 spoke alloy wheel combined with the flared wheel arches imparts it a sporty style from the side. The rear side of the car is seems complementing the front design with its compact windscreen and clear tail-lights. The trunk gate has a small opening but it can accommodate items big enough. The rear also has a high mount stop lamp.

When it comes to performance, Maruti, in no doubt is a leader. Maruti Suzuki SX4 Diesel comes with a 1.3 liter, 1248cc diesel DDiS engine and develops an incredible maximum power of 88 BHP @4000 rpm and maximum torque of 200 NM @1750 rpm. The low engine sound ensures a very comfortable drive to its passengers. The car is fitted with 1.6 VVT (Variable Valve Timing) engine and complies with the strict emission norms. The car also comes in 1.6 litre petrol version along with 4 cylinders and 16 valves. The petrol engine delivers a mileage of about 11.5 kmpl in city conditions and about 15.5 kmpl on highways where as the diesel engine can deliver up to 17.5 kmpl while driving in city conditions and up to 21.5 kmpl on highways.

Overall, Maruti SX4 is a perfect blend of style, masculinity, performance, comfort and safety. Standing true to its name, Maruti has delivered a perfect sedan for the Indian roads
