Guide: 5=Perfect; 3=Good; 1=Poor
Pros: What do you like about your 2007 Suzuki SX4?
Really like the design, no nonsense interior, AWD,reasonable interior volume, price.
Cons: How would you improve your 2007 Suzuki SX4?
Desperately needs to have the 1.9L diesel engine from "Sedici" available in europe.
Current US 2.0L gas engine needs to have a 6 speed Manual and 5 speed auto available to improve average fuel economy and reduce top gear rev resulting in a quieter cabin.
Improve interior plastics with more easy touch materials.
Add a 2 tone layout on dash to instill a larger feeling and greater preception of quality.
Possibly use an enhanced Aerio 2.3 Engine in a "Sport+" option for bigger performance.
Have all Independant suspension, wishbone type would be a real step up and would improve the average ride quality, to excellent.
2007 Suzuki SX4 Review:
I really like this car and would love to have one.
However, fuel economy is rather average.
Honestly, considering the fact that Suzuki primarily makes cars, It has been something of a dissapointment that they havent pushed their products to have above average fuel economy?!
Awd on the SX4 will be especially useful in bad weather and the decent use of interior space will make for a practical and functional interior.
Overall performance will be decent, but there is room for improvement.
Honestly, an excellent car that could use a bit of polish that already has the makings to be one hell of a hit if some of these main issues are taken care of.
Get more MPG, and watch the competition squirm.
Please introduce the 1.9L Diesel, or punch it out to 2.0L for US models for average fuel economy of something in the neighborhood of 40-43 Mpg in mixed driving. The "sedici" made avalible in Europe has the 1.9L and gets 43 MPG mixed driving and has 120 HP! (a 2.0 Variant could have 135+HP, which is pretty comparable to the current gas 2.0 @ 143HP
Again I feel there is no excuse not to bring a diesel option to the US with fuel prices over $3.00 a gallon and climbing.
Id snap one up in a second.
As Im sure many would.
Overall, a really good car regardless of the quibbles.
People are looking for frugality and value, but also look for an area that stands out.
As it is, the SX4 is a jack of all trades kind of car.
