On show at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor show in September, will be the 2010 Suzuki SX4; Suzuki's clever combination of SUV dynamics and passenger car elegance. The latest Suzuki SX4 incorporates cleaner styling refreshments to the exterior with a new styling package for greater aerodynamics and sporting appearance. The Minor Change model also features a new front bumper assembly, front grille and new design front and rear skid plates to help handle the rigours of outdoor life.
Updates to the interior include a new design instrument cluster with integrated information display, a new control panel for the climate control system and various measures to further reduce NVH.
The Suzuki SX4 is a distinctive five-door hatchback that blends the characteristics of sporty compacts exemplified by the Suzuki Swift, with those of lightweight SUVs such as the Suzuki Grand Vitara, to create an exciting small car alternative.
The resulting 'sport X-over' combines responsive driving dynamics, 4x4 capability and high levels of practicality and styling.
The 2010 model Suzuki SX4 with 1.6-litre petrol engine will receive some minor modifications including Variable Valve Timing and a modified cylinder head resulting in improved efficiency, fuel consumption and approximately 10 per cent lower emissions; further information will be available closer to launch next year.
The Minor Change Suzuki SX4 will also be available in Europe with an all-new 2.0-litre DDiS engine for the AWD version which will offer 18 per cent lower emissions - a reduction from 174g/km to 143g/km together with negligible particulate emissions of just 0.003g/km. This model will be introduced later in 2010.
At Suzuki it's not just about stylish and clean cars as the company will also exhibit several examples from its innovative and widespread range of motorcycles as well as the latest Marine Outboard engines and All Terrain Vehicles (ATVs).
Suzuki continue to focus on its expertise in small cars and will also showcase its latest range of low emission models including the Suzuki Alto, Splash 1.0-litre petrol and 1.3 DDiS Suzuki Splash and Swift models.Published 24 August 2009
