Suzuki SX4

Suzuki SX4#1
The New Sport X-Over
Following new Swift and new Grand Vitara, Suzuki Motor Corporation (Suzuki) will start production of its third world-strategic-model – the all-new SX4 – at European manufacturing subsidiary, Magyar Suzuki Corporation, Hungary, from December 2005. Its world launch will be at the Geneva Motor Show in March, 2006 with retail sales from spring, 2006 in the UK.

Joint Development
The all-new SX4 was created as a result of a joint development agreement between Suzuki and Fiat Auto S.p.A. (Fiat) signed in April, 2003.

Suzuki took the initiative for the project management from concept to mass production.

Magyar Suzuki will produce 60,000 units of this all-new SUV annually, 40,000 for Suzuki’s European market and 20,000 for Fiat.A Compact Crossover

Under the concept of “X-over revolution”, SX4 has the DNA of Suzuki’s compact cars exemplified by the new Swift and draws on Suzuki’s experience of producing lightweight SUVs such as the Grand Vitara.

“X-over design” refers to the practicality of an SUV crossed with the appearance of a passenger car. The SX4 has two variants. The “Urban Line” emphasises the passenger car characteristics with fewer SUV design elements whilst the “Outdoor Line” is distinctly more of an SUV in appearance.

A significant feature of the Suzuki SX4 Outdoor Line 4x4 version is its switchable three-mode 4x4 system – 2WD mode, 4WD Auto mode and 4WD Lock mode – that delivers all-wheel traction superior to that needed for every day situations.

Powertrain and Transmission
Advanced powerplant and drivetrain technologies enable fun, dynamic performance in any environment. There is a choice of three engines: 1,490cc 73kW/99hp and 1,586cc 79kW/107hp petrol units and 1,910cc 88kW/120hp diesel unit. The diesel engine is equipped with a particulate filter.

Of note, the Suzuki SX4 is the only car in the class that features the combination of diesel, 6MT and 4x4. This combination delivers class-leading performance. A flat torque curve guarantees powerful acceleration and smooth performance.

A new six-speed manual transmission – available with the diesel engine only – brings out the full potential of the engine and provides maximum driving pleasure.

Rigid body / Safety
The SX4 allows drivers to enjoy an active driving experience. The rigid body ensures crisp handling to meet European demands. The Suzuki SX4 also offers high levels of torsional and bending rigidity. High-rigidity suspension mounts augment the body’s rigidity to draw out the suspension’s full potential.

Active, or preventative, safety features begin with the vehicle’s design. The commanding driving position provides a wide field of vision for the driver. ABS with electronic brake-force distribution (EBD) is standard on all models. An electronic stability program is available on selected models.
