2010 Suzuki SX4 Crossover SUV

2010 Suzuki SX4 Crossover Review

(2 Stars)  The cheapest AWD option available

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

Overview
The SX4 Crossover, launched in 2007 is Suzuki's compact crossover. This is the cheapest vehicle to drive all four wheels, no small feat given the high prices that four or all wheel drive normally demands. It is a bargain compact SUV for those who either need all wheel drive to get off road or for those who live in climates where all wheel drive makes getting around town a needed feature. The all wheel drive system the SX4 uses is quite robust as well. Allowing the driver to select from 3 different operating presets. They can choose full time front wheel drive, part time all wheel drive, or full time 4 wheel drive. In the higher levels of trim, a Garmin GPS also comes standard. Combined, these features offer a degree more versatility than the sedan body style is able to.

The SX4 is powered by a new 2.0 liter four cylinder engine good for 150 HP. Power is sent through either a 6 speed manual or a CVT transmission. The sub 3000lb vehicle weight means that the 2.0 liter engine is enough to give a fairly peppy drive.
