Model Highlights

The 2011 Suzuki SX4 is offered as either a 5-door hatchback or 4-door sedan. Sedans are available in Base and LE trim, with Sport Sedans available in S, SE and GTS trim. Hatchbacks are offered in Base, Technology and Premium trim levels. All-wheel drive is available, but only in the 5-door hatchback. The basic sedan starts at a low $12,958, the hatch starts at $15,838 and all-wheel drive models begin at $16,318.

Two transmissions are available on all SX4s-- 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 a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine, which has been tuned to produce 150 horsepower (148 when equipped with the CVT) and 140 foot-pounds of torque. The EPA estimates the front-wheel drive Sport Sedan is capable of 23 mpg city and 31 mpg highway when equipped with the CVT. The all-wheel drive hatches are rated at 21 mpg city and 28 mpg highway.

The base Suzuki SX4 sedan starts remarkably inexpensively at just under $13,000. It comes simply equipped, but with the same 150 hp 2.0L 4-cylinder engine that's standard across the lineup. But, even at this price, it includes power windows and locks, anti-lock brakes and front, side and curtain airbags and a tire pressure monitoring system.

An LE Anniversary Edition replaces last year's LE Popular trim. It includes 17-inch alloy wheels, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and remote keyless entry. The Sport sedan adds a sport-tuned suspension, a body kit, a subscription to Suzuki's "NuLink" system which provides in-car information and data such as fuel prices, weather forecasts and traffic. The Sport sedan SE adds a navigation system, and the GTS, at $18,899 adds a spoiler, a premium 8-speaker stereo, "SmartPass" keyless entry, climate control and an electronic stability control system.

The SX4 Sportback, introduced in 2010, brings additional versatility to the lineup. The base Sportback features a sport-tuned suspension, 17-inch alloy wheels, a rear wiper, a CD/MP3 stereo, leather-wrapped steering wheel, power windows and locks, remote keyless entry and air conditioning. It comes with either a 6-speed manual or CVT transmission.

The all-wheel drive version of the Sportback, which Suzuki calls the SX4 Crossover, maintains the high-value content of the Sportback, but adds a 3-mode all-wheel drive system, heated mirrors and a special body kit.

The Technology trim adds such high-end features as heated front seats and a navigation system and a 1-year subscription to Suzuki's "NuLink" system.


Model News

For 2011, a minor trim reshuffling took place, but the SX4 carries over mostly unchanged.


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. Base prices range from $13,000 to just under $20,000, and it's the least-expensive vehicle to offer all-wheel drive in the U.S. The SX4 comes in both hatch and sedan forms, and features a powerful and fuel efficient 4-cylinder engine capable of 150 hp and 31 mpg on the highway.

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.

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.
