Vehicle Overview

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 all-wheel drive. All compete with other small cars like the Ford Focus, Honda Civic and Mazda3.
New for 2013
Hatchback versions of the SX4 get minor front-end styling changes including a new grille and a revised front bumper. A new integrated navigation and entertainment system with streaming audio functionality is available.
Exterior
From the center roof pillar forward, the SX4 Sport sedan is similar to the SX4 Crossover, featuring the same creased bodywork. The SportBack ditches the Crossover's roof rack for a cleaner profile.

  • Standard power windows, side mirrors and locks

  • Available CD stereo
  • Available air conditioning
  • Available cruise control
  • Available navigation system
  • Available Bluetooth connectivity

I've owned about 40 cars, this is one of my favs!

by maw0130 on July 15, 2017

Some professional reviews say this car is sluggish, I can't say the same. My son even commented that he was scared he'd get a ticket in this car. It accelerates good and no problems passing. It is ... Read full review

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
