Suzuki Presents New SX4 in Geneva

2013 Geneva Motor Show

Japanese crossover goes up a size class.

Suzuki may be gone from the North American market – the US courts having recently approved its Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing – but it’s still going strong in other markets. So while it won’t be coming to these shores, the Japanese automaker has unveiled its new SX4 ((which stands for Suzuki Crossover 4WD) at the Geneva show. With the outgoing SX4 (jointly produced with Fiat as the Sedici) nearing the end of the road, the new model is closely based on the S-Cross concept that appeared at the Paris salon last year.

Larger than the outgoing model, the new SX4 also looks more substantial. Suzuki has also fitted it with a double sliding panoramic sunroof, said to be the first in its class. The new SX4 is also more aerodynamic and fuel efficient, with more interior space and 50% more cargo room. Buyers will be able to choose between gasoline or turbo-diesel engines (both displacing 1.6 liters across four cylinders), a standard manual (five speeds with the gas or six with the diesel) or available CVT and front-drive or all-wheel drive. And while the Crystal Lime Metallic paint is available, there’s another nine in the color catalog.
