Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), also known as "sticker" price, is a recommended selling price that automakers give a new car that is above the invoice price paid by the dealer. It is a price that does not include any options that can be added to a particular car style. When shown as a range, the prices are starting MSRPs, without options, for multiple styles for that model.
This price range reflects the Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value for all trim levels, but not necessarily all available options.
The Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value represents the amount an auto dealer might ask for a specific vehicle; the actual sale price will vary. A vehicle's popularity, condition, warranty, color and local market conditions are factors involved in determining a final price. The retail value is not a trade-in or private party value.
The Suggested Retail value assumes that the vehicle has been fully reconditioned and has a clean title history. The Suggested Retail value also allows for advertising, sales commissions, insurance and other costs of doing business as a dealer. Most vehicles offered at this price have passed an inspection, and some may carry a warranty. Vehicle mileage is assumed to be normal or below normal.

The five-seat Suzuki SX4 is derived from an established overseas model, the Swift. It's available as a front-drive sedan and SportBack hatchback, and the Crossover hatchback comes with standard all-wheel drive. All compete with other small cars like the Ford Focus, Honda Civic and Mazda3.
New for 2012 An electronic stability system is standard for 2012. The available navigation system has also been upgraded.
Exterior From the center roof pillar forward, the SX4 Sport sedan is a dead ringer for the SX4 Crossover, featuring the same stylishly assertive face with creased bodywork. The SportBack ditches the Crossover's roof rack for a cleaner profile. The SportBack and Sport sedan also have a lower ride height and firmer suspension than the Crossover. Exterior features include:
Four-door sedan or hatchback
Standard 15-inch steel wheels; 16- and 17-inch wheels available
Standard power windows, side mirrors and locks
Available body kit
Interior The backseat is workable for adults, both in terms of headroom and legroom. The backseat is split 60/40 and can be folded to free more cargo space. Interior features include:
Standard driver and front-passenger armrests
Standard tilt steering wheel
Available CD stereo
Available air conditioning
Available cruise control
Available navigation system
Available Bluetooth connectivity
Available heated front seats
Under the Hood All SX4 models use the same engine and transmissions, though the Crossover has standard all-wheel drive and the others come with front-wheel drive. Mechanical features include:
Standard six-speed manual transmission
Available continuously variable automatic transmission
150-horsepower, 2.0-liter four-cylinder (148 hp with the CVT)
