Image via WikipediaI was going through a review related to Maruti SX4, it was more like a drivers biography and his experiences with that car. In his article he has described that how he survived from near death instances. He blamed the car for the poor design and visibility and he termed the car as a death trap, sounds interesting but i am not convinced. According to him it happened thrice with him while he was driving that particular car. He Blamed the car for the accidents but I blame his driving skills for that. As a matter of fact Suzuki SX4 is very well designed car and termed a futuristic design by many critics. I believe SX4 has a very unique design,only the wheels size may look oversized to few but rest of the car is very well balanced and the bigger wheels provides it a better balance while driving. SX4 is powered by 1586cc, 4 cylinder petrol engine with develops maximum power 102bhp at 5500rpm with maximum torque of 154Nm at 4200rpm. It takes a around 12 seconds to 100kph.
Developed by Suzuki and Fiat, it was launched in 2006 in European market as a hatchback model. In 2007 It was introduced and released in Japan, India and a few Eastern European markets. Since its launch in India Suzuki SX4 has been doing extremely well.
Well lets get back to the safety aspect of the car.On safety front SX4 is very well equipped with the top-end ZXi variant having adjustable tilt steering, tubeless tires, alloys, Dual airbags, ABS, Disc brakes and automatic climate control system. Fuel Economy is something where it lacks a bit. It returns fuel economy of around 9.3kpl in the city and 14.5kpl on the highway which is very less if we compare it to the Honda City. But Overall SX4 is a great car, is very well equipped, is good looking and fun to drive.
