Maruti Suzuki SX4 (2007-2013) Overview

Launched back in 2007, the Maruti SX4 was an instant success, but it lost its charm as soon as the diesel era took over the petrol. So with an aim to get back on track, the company introduced the 1.3-litre DDiS diesel engine powered version in 2011. But it was probably too late to make a come back, as cars like Verna and Vento were already there in diesel option. However, there is no denying that the SX4 is a great product.
The dynamic dimensions, design and styling make SX4 one of the tallest sedans in this segment. Its crossover platform is all inspired by Suzuki and Fiat. The large headlights integrated with mesh grill, curvy front and rear bumper (well blended with three part airdam and twin reflectors respectively), gargantuan windscreen, large wheels and high-mounted boot give it a true masculine look, which is really hard to ignore. The build quality is certainly is on upper hand when compared to cars like Linea, Vento etc. The interior of Maruti SX4 gives a perfect feel of a sedan. Its top-end variants come with an impressive list of features including good quality audio system with Aux/ USB, electric power steering, advanced ABS (Anti-lock braking system) with EBD, automatic climate control unit, steering mounted controls, I-CATS immobilizer, remote keyless entry, well cushioned seats with high-quality fabric and more. Powered with the DOHC 1.6-litre petrol engine with VVT, it delivers a peak power of 103.3bhp at 5600rpm and a maximum torque of 145Nm at 4100rpm. However, the fuel efficiency of this powertrain doesn't impress, which is 9.3kmpl on city roads and 15.5kmpl on highways. Its 1.3-litre DDiS diesel unit produces a top power and torque of 88.8bhp at 4000rpm and 200Nm at 1750rpm respectively. This engine is boosted with a CRDi fuel supply system and a five speed manual transmission. On fuel efficiency front, its diesel variant proves a better performer than its older petrol option. It offers a mileage of 15kmpl in city and 21.5kmpl on highways. Both the engine options are equipped with 4 cylinders and 16 valves and well mated with a five speed manual transmission. The ride quality and handling of the SX4 is pretty impressive. When asked for price, one may hesitate to spend on this sedan, when its competitors are available at a lesser price.
