Suzuki SX4 gets a facelift

Suzuki Motor Corporation is an important Japanese company that is active in many fields that require motoring. The automobile world wouldn’t be the same without Suzuki, as the firm always tries to do its best to please clients. Suzuki SX4 is one of the most familiar cars manufactured by the brand. In Shanghai Auto Show, a new face of the vehicle has just been introduced.

The facelift Suzuki SX4 will be manufactured by Chang’an- Suzuki joint venture. Under the concept of “X-over revolution”, the SX4 has the DNA of Suzuki’s compact cars exemplified by the new Swift and draws on Suzuki’s experience of producing lightweight SUVs such as the Grand Vitara. So the SX4 becomes both practical and good as a passenger car. The front change signifies a redesigned front fascia with a new front bumper, a different shape of the headlights, a new appearance of the grille, fog lights and air dam. It also rides on a new set of alloys. In addition, the vehicle has a rear bumper and roof rails, while the interior is virtually the same.

The pre and post facelift models of Suzuki SX4 share the same engine types. This means a 1.6-liter gasoline with 109 bhp (81 kW) and a 1.8-liter with 131 bhp (98 kW). Both of them are connected to a five speed manual or a four speed auto transmission. The price varies between 85,000 Yuan (13,700 USD / 10,500 EUR / 9,000 GBP) and 135,000 Yuan (21,800 USD / 16,700 EUR / 14,300 GBP).
