The Suzuki Aerio is to be replaced by the SX4 five-door compact hatchback in 2008. The SX4 adds a front-wheel drive Sport sedan as an option and has an arsenal of standard safety features.
Both the hatchback and sedan feature a more sporty exterior design and have higher dimensions than other vehicles of the class. The compact style deceives the average spectator into believing there is an equally compact interior; the average spectator is wrong. The five-person capacity is doubled with a 50/50-split backseat. In the crossover, the seat can be folded flat and tumbled forward, and the cargo volume dramatically increases from its already respectable number. The SX4 Sport features a spacious trunk that overpowers other models in the class. Other features you’ll find in both models include cruise control, automatic climate control, power features, MP3 compatible audio systems, SmartPass™ keyless entry and more!
All SX4 models include Anti-lock brakes with Electronic Brake-force Distribution, frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags and side-curtain airbags for both rows. Also standard is a Tire Pressure Monitoring System, front and rear side-impact door beams and the list goes on! The option for an Electronic Stability Program with Traction Control is available for both the Crossover and the Sport. Both models also use the 2.0-liter DOHC 4-cylinder engine. The vehicles come with a standard five-speed manual transmission or an optional four-speed automatic transmission. The Crossover comes standard with AWD, while the sport is FWD.
Both the sedan and hatchback perform great and have more than enough comfort for the passengers and driver. It would be wise to check the 2008 Suzuki SX4 out. You have versatility, options and guaranteed performance.
