 The new Maruti SX4 sedan is finally here and it has a host of improvements. The design has been changed and the result is that it looks fresh and more premium than before. The biggest change is the front which has a new bumper and grille. The muscular bumper looks good with a 2-tone front grille and fog lamp with dual-tone garnish adds to the looks. Elsewhere the looks pretty much remain the same and the side/rear view still have the muscular look. The SX4 has huge ground clearance and that adds to the presence. The manjority of the changes though are on the inside where the  new SX4 sports black and beige dual tone shades. The dashboard has black finish and beige fabric upholstery. The new interiors have a new black and marble finish prints, wooden finish armrests, chrome AC side louvers and chrome finish side handles.The new SX4 has many new optional features such as an all new touch-screen audio with integrated navigation with Bluetooth. This enables features like GPS, Music and messaging to be integrated on the screen. Space continues to be a asset to the SX4 though we wished some more changes could have done the cabin much better. The rear seats are big and allow for comfortable sitting with an airy feeling inside.The SX4 is powered by a 1.6-litre VVT petrol engine that delivers a maximum power of 104.7 PS at 5600 rpm and a peak torque of 145NM at 4100 rpm. Under the hood of the SX4 Diesel lies the high powered 1.3 litre Super Turbo DDiS diesel engine that returns power of 90PS @ 4000 rpm and a peak torque of 200NM @ 1750 rpm. Power is transmitted via five-speed gearbox that uses detent pin technology. The new SX4 is OBD-II compliant and meets the BS-IV standards. The fuel economy too is improved with a figure of 16.51 kmpl for the petrol and 21.79 kmpl for the diesel. There is a CNG variant too and its mileage is 22.1 km/kg for CNG. The prices for the new SX4 are unchanged over the earlier one and it is good value for money. Maruti SX4 petrol range price starts from, VXI: Rs 738115, VXI CNG: Rs 799974 and ZXI: Rs 824765. The new SX4 diesel has prices which start from VDI: Rs 827458 to ZDI: Rs 921669.

 The manjority of the changes though are on the inside where the  new SX4 sports black and beige dual tone shades. The dashboard has black finish and beige fabric upholstery. The new interiors have a refreshing black and marble finish prints, wooden finish armrests, chrome AC side louvers and chrome finish side handles. The new SX4 has many new optional features such as an all new touch-screen audio with integrated navigation with Bluetooth. This enables features like GPS, Music and messaging to be integrated on the screen. Space continues to be a asset to the SX4 though we wished some more changes could have done the cabin much better. The rear seats are big and allow for comfortable sitting with an airy feeling inside.

What we like

What we like

New changes make the design slightly fresh

What we don't like

Rear and side design is mostly same


Engine

 The SX4 is powered by a 1.6-litre VVT petrol engine that delivers a maximum power of 104.7 PS at 5600 rpm and a peak torque of 145NM at 4100 rpm. Under the hood of the SX4 Diesel lies the high powered 1.3 litre Super Turbo DDiS diesel engine that returns power of 90PS @ 4000 rpm and a peak torque of 200NM @ 1750 rpm. Power is transmitted via five-speed gearbox that uses detent pin technology. The new SX4 is OBD-II compliant and meets the BS-IV standards. 

 
What we like

Diesel is the pick though petrol offers strong performance

What we don't like

Gearbox and steering needs to be better


Mileage

 The fuel economy too is improved with a figure of 16.51 kmpl for the petrol and 21.79 kmpl for the diesel. There is a CNG variant too and its mileage is 22.1 km/kg for CNG.

 
What we like

Diesel has very good economy

What we don't like

Petrol economy can be better


Safety

 The SX4 has big tyres and ground clearance and the handling is decent and improved over the early versions. The steering is light and direct and its fun to drive overall.  It comes with ABS + EBD and tyres of adequate grip and size which allows you to have full control over the car at all times. SX4 rides like a big car and has excellent ride quality.

What we like

Decently fun to drive

What we don't like

Not as good handling wise as the Honda City


Comfort

  Maruti Suzuki SX4 has a well tuned suspension unit which responds positively to all kinds of road conditions and absorbs all the undulations on the road. It has high ground clearance and manages to glide easily over potholed roads and speed breakers and the body roll is well controlled on this car and inspires confidence while going around a tight curve. SX4 has a well insulated cabin and ensures that the NVH levels are well controlled and there is no discomfort to passengers.

What we like

Good ride and it is easy to drive

What we don't like

Low refinement

Amazing Sx4

By RATAN SINGH Posted on 10 May 08, 12:51 AM

Pros Amazing looks, Stylish body, Great Control, Value for money

Cons Interiors can be better, due to power & pickup Mileage is little bad

If you drive the car, you will never go back home without buying one. Great looks, Suzuki Comfort, Amazing power & Pickup, At 150-160 you will have great Grip and Control. Price is cheap when compared the Features. Simply, dont waste ur money on buying costly cars like Honda city (Very soon model will be changed or Scraped), Only in interiors honda fares beter than Sx4. Dezire is the only threat for Sx4

Men are really retrosexuall

By RATAN SINGH Posted on 20 Aug 08, 11:52 PM

Pros Amazing brute looks, can throw the competitors spinning for covers, driveability

Cons lack of parking sensors

The car will definitely ignite your passion for driving and the back seat is the last place you would like to be in the SX4.The drivers seat is the place where I love to enjoy the beauty of this beast and the competitors seeking covers from this powerhouse on prowl. The list of the pros are endless and can go on for ever, but let me rather point out at the cons... The suspension are rather stiff for city ride and the engine strains a bit above the mid level marking but is definitely adequetely powered to slingshot your way through the traffic. What could have completed the package of accessories is a parking sensor as I feel it really would have made the driving pleasure increase manifold.And asking for a rear AC vent is not too much to have on the wish list , i guess. Overall it is a car that showed what the city, fiesta and verna didn\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t have for the indian customers (namely the safety packge like ABS, Air Bag)though being priced at a premium. Maruti Suzukis commitment for Indian consumers definitely requires a thumbs up.

Wastage of money

By Krishana Bhosale Posted on 06 Mar 10, 10:22 PM

Pros good looks , nothing else

Cons not brand image , wastage of 8 lakh rupees

Don't buy it bad car it is instead buy fiat linea or honda city, no good average not peppy like linea i sold it off in 6 months and bought linea ( for 3 years ) at least find fiat linea is much more good car than it don't waste your money on it, i am regretting whole package is absurd ,you'll feel driving a small car like hyundai i 10 when you drive it, linea feels like you are driving honda accord so sx4 is not terrific value of money, moreover maruti is suitable for 4 lakh car since they are flopped worldwide in sedans like sx4, so think twice before buying this garbage box

Cons rear seat cramped , rough gearbox

it is overall an excellent car witha a lot of features. it has got ABS , DUAL AIRBAGS , CLIMATE CONTROL , EBD , ALLOY WHEELS ETC FOR JUST 8.5 LAKHS.so i think , it is a better car than FORD FIESTA , HYUNDAI VERNA , CHEVROLET AVEO AND HONDA CITY

SX4 is our new love!

By Dr. S. Posted on 11 Jun 10, 12:26 PM

Pros Power demon. highly stable

Cons you got to be kidding

I am a proud owner of Maruti SX4. I am driving and enjoying the SX4 so much as it behaves the way exactly as I expect in a luxury sedan. The engine is very refined and is giving excellent pick up. Mileage is a consistent 14 kmpl. I have taken her on full whack upto 173 kmph and man, its solid and perfectly stable. Air bags and ABS are superb. My automatic transmission SX4 is so easy to drive as my wife carves to drive it inspite of its huge size. SX4 is a very friendly car

Important feature lacking for buying

By Ravindra Yadav Posted on 19 Mar 11, 03:26 PM
