2007 Los Angeles Auto Show: Suzuki SX4 Sport AND SX4 Crossover

subaru Suzuki SX4 SportThe all-new 2008 four-door Suzuki SX4 Sport is cousin to the five-door SX4 Crossover and designed to ease the day-in, day-out urban grind for its drivers. Sharing a common appeal to those who live a life consistent with Suzuki’s “Way of Life” brand philosophy, the SX4 Sport and SX4 Crossover seamlessly blend into varied driving conditions and environments.
The SX4 Sport brings award-winning handling capabilities from the Suzuki Swift, which has won more than 16 international awards, to the U.S. market. Having wowed journalists and hundreds of thousands of drivers throughout the world, the sporty Swift character embodied in the SX4 Sport can now be enjoyed by U.S. consumers. Suzuki’s development benchmark for the SX4 Sport was to meet or beat the Swift on key dynamic performance attributes in order to win the heart of the American consumer.
SX4’s appeal does not stop on the track, as it offers bold, youthful styling along with a generous list of standard features and a surprisingly roomy interior. Targeted toward younger buyers with a male skew, the SX4 Sport represents a core model for Suzuki that has a personality distinct from its competitors.
Built in Japan, the SX4 Sport features a sophisticated 2.0-liter, four-cylinder, 16-valve DOHC engine matched to a five-speed manual transmission or an available specially tuned four-speed automatic transmission. The responsive engine’s strong low-end torque provides the fun-to-drive feeling commuters and weekenders crave, along with more power than segment volume leaders. The 2.0-liter engine delivers 143 horsepower and 136 lb.-ft. of torque, with an estimated EPA fuel economy rating of 23 mpg/city and 31 mpg/highway with automatic transmission.

The 2008 SX4 Sport is one of the best-equipped compact cars in America, with more standard features than cars costing thousands more. The base SX4 Sport’s standard features include six airbags (front driver and passenger airbags, driver and passenger side-impact airbags and side curtain airbags), four-wheel disc brakes with ABS and electronic brake-force distribution, tire pressure monitoring system, trip computer, front seatbelt pretensioners, power windows, locks and mirrors, remote keyless entry, air conditioning, AM/FM/CD/MP3 audio system with four speakers, tilt steering wheel, aero body package, 17-inch alloy wheels and floor mats. The starting MSRP for the four-door SX4 Sport is $14,770 plus $625 destination and handling.
The Convenience Package adds cruise control and a leather-wrapped steering wheel with integrated audio controls, automatic climate control and heated outside mirrors. Adding only $500, the starting MSRP for the SX4 Sport with the Convenience Package is $15,270. For just another $1,000, the Touring package adds a six-disc CD player, upgraded 380-watt audio system with nine speakers, including subwoofer, fog lamps, a rear spoiler, Electronic Stability Program (ESP)1 with traction control system and SmartPass keyless entry and start system, and starts at $16,270. An automatic transmission is available for $1,100 on all models.

Suzuki SX4 Crossover

Since its introduction last year, the Suzuki SX4 Crossover has received numerous awards, including being named one of the “Top 10 Coolest Cars Under $18,000” by Kelley Blue Book and “Best Kept Secret of 2007” by Autobytel. The SX4 Crossover features a sophisticated 2.0-liter, in-line four cylinder, DOHC engine rated at 143 horsepower. Fitted with intelligent all-wheel drive as standard equipment, the five-door is America’s most affordable all-wheel-drive vehicle and is sure to be a year-round standout in any driving condition.
Several refinements have been made for the 2008 model year, including a revised fifth gear ratio (M/T) for improved highway mpg and reduced NVH, remote fuel door release, air conditioning with automatic climate control and heated outside mirrors with the Convenience package. Other available features for the 2008 SX4 Crossover include Bluetooth connectivity, sport pedals and shifter. The starting MSRP for the five-door SX4 Crossover is $15,270 plus $625 destination and handling.
