Pros

Excellent value for the dollar, available all-wheel drive, good maneuverability and safety, wide range of available trim levels and options.


Model News

For 2010, the SX4 gets updated exterior and interior styling, more power from the standard 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine, and two new transmissions--a continuously variable automatic (CVT), and a close-ratio 6-speed manual. A new model, called the SportBack, also joins the lineup this year, with more aggressive suspension tuning, a unique front fascia design, no roof rack, new front and rear spoilers, 17-inch alloy wheels, and 4-wheel disc brakes. Inside, several cosmetic changes have been made, including new seat fabric and a redesigned instrument cluster.


Value Writeup

Aimed squarely at those looking to get the most value for their dollar, the Suzuki SX4 offers a wide array of features at an entry-level price. It's still the cheapest all-wheel drive subcompact on the U.S. market, and this year's SportBack option tops the list of options that make for a fun driving package, that even when well-equipped, is priced at or below many of the competition's base models.


Model Highlights

The 2010 Suzuki SX4 is offered as either a 5-door hatchback or 4-door sedan. Sedans are available in Base, LE, and LE Popular trim, with Sport Sedans available in S, SE and GTS trim. Hatchbacks are offered in Base, Technology, Touring or GTS trim levels. All-wheel drive is available, but only in the 5-door hatchback, now known as the Crossover. The basic sedan starts at $13,359, while the Crossover is listed at $15,849 and the SportBack at $17,949.

Two new transmissions are now available, including a close-ratio 6-speed manual and a CVT automatic, which comes standard with paddle shifters and a "sport" mode. All models are powered by the same 2.0-liter 16-valve 4-cylinder engine as offered in 2009, which has been tuned to produce 150 horsepower (148 when equipped with the CVT) and 140 foot-pounds of torque--up from 2009's 143 horsepower and 136 pound-feet. The front-wheel drive Sport Sedan is estimated to achieve 23 mpg city and 32 mpg highway when equipped with the 6-speed manual, while the CVT returns 23 mpg city and 30 mpg highway. Both all-wheel drive Crossovers and front-wheel drive SportBacks are rated at 22 mpg city and 30 mpg highway. The Crossover retains Suzuki's all-wheel drive system, which lacks a low range but can be run in two-wheel drive, or be set to allow for a 50/50 split in power between the front and rear wheels.

The SportBack joins the lineup this year, based on the 5-door hatchback with the GTS package. It features front-wheel drive, sport-tuned suspension, a new and distinct front fascia design, front and rear spoilers, and roof rack delete. Navigation is standard, as is a leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls, 8-speaker AM/FM/CD stereo with 6-disc changer and MP3 playback, power windows and locks, remote keyless entry, SmartPass electronic start and automatic climate control.

Available safety features across the line include ABS, traction control, an antiskid system, front side airbags and side curtain airbags. Other available options include pop-up touchscreen navigation with enhanced 3D graphics, keyless entry, remote start, wireless cell phone link, and one-year access to MSN's Direct Services, which features real-time traffic and weather updates as part of its service.

THE TENSION ADJUSTER PULLEY FOR THE DRIVE BELT THAT OPERATES THE ALTERNATOR, WATER PUMP, AIR CONDITIONER COMPRESSOR AND POWER STEERING PUMP, HAS AN IMPROPERLY MANUFACTURED INTERNAL SPRING THAT CAN BREAK DUE TO REPEATED STRESS. IF THE SPRING BREAKS, THE DRIVE BELT WILL NOT BE ADJUSTED PROPERLY AND CAN SLIP, CAUSING A SQUEAKING NOISE. OR THE DRIVE BELT COULD COME OFF CAUSING THE DRIVER TO INCREASE TO STEER THE VEHICLE. THIS CAN ALSO CAUSE THE COOLANT TEMPERATURE INDICATION TO RISE, WHICH CAN LEAD TO THE ENGINE OVERHEATING, OR CAN CAUSE THE CHARGING LIGHT TO COME ON, WHICH CAN LEAD TO BATTERY DISCHARGE AND ENGINE STALL.

Consequence
IF THE DRIVE BELT COMES OFF, REQUIRING THE DRIVER TO USE INCREASED STEERING EFFORT, OR THE ENGINE STALLS, A VEHICLE CRASH COULD OCCUR

DEALERS WILL REPLACE THE TENSION ADJUSTER PULLEY WITH AN IMPROVED PART. THIS SERVICE WILL BE PERFORMED FREE OF CHARGE. THE SAFETY RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN ON OR BEFORE FEBRUARY 16, 2011. OWNERS MAY CONTACT SUZUKI AT 1-887-697-8985 OR VISIT SUZUKI'S WEBSITE AT HTTP://WWW.SUZUKIAUTO.COM.

Potential Number of Units Affected

Summary
Suzuki Motor of America, Inc. (Suzuki) is recalling certain model year 2006-2011 Grand Vitara and 2007-2011 SX4 vehicles. In the affected vehicles, over time, the OCS sensor mat installed in the front passenger seat may fail due to repeated flexing of the mat from use of the seat. As a result, during a crash necessitating deployment, the air bag will deploy regardless of whether the front seat occupant is an adult or a child.

Consequence
Air bag deployment with a child in the front passenger side seat increases the risk of injury to that child.

Suzuki will notify owners and dealers will replace the front passenger seat cushion assembly (which includes the OCS sensor mat) free of charge. Sufficient quantities of parts are not currently available to fix all of the affected vehicles. Owners will be notified of the recall in October 2013 and will receive a second notification when parts are available to have their vehicle repaired. Owners may contact Suzuki at 1-800-934-0934. Suzuki's recall campaign number is VD.

Note: Vehicles which previously had a countermeasure occupant classification system (OCS) sensor mat installed under the special coverage campaign conducted by Suzuki distributors in the United States are not affected by this recall. Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY: 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Summary
Suzuki Motor of America, Inc. (Suzuki) is recalling certain model year 2010-2013 SX4 vehicles manufactured July 16, 2009, to November 1, 2012, and 2010-2013 Kizashi vehicles manufactured October 13, 2009, to October 31, 2012. The shift selector can be moved out of the "Park" position without depressing the brake pedal.

Consequence
If the shift selector is moved out of the "Park" position while the brake pedal is not depressed, the vehicle may unexpectedly roll, increasing the risk of a vehicle crash.

Suzuki will notify owners, and dealers will replace the shift selector assembly, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin January 19, 2015. Owners may contact Suzuki customer service at 1-714-996-7040. Suzuki's number for this recall is VL.

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
