2009 Suzuki SX4 Hatchback Crossover
Benefits of Driving a 2009 Suzuki SX4 Hatchback Crossover
The fun-to-drive SX4 is a standout among small cars on many counts and ranks by almost any assessment as a very strong value for the money. The Crossover still ranks as the lowest-priced car in the U.S. market with all-wheel drive, and now electronic stability control is also standard on it. What's more, the SX4 has a standard navigation system, at a time when navigation systems still aren't offered on most of the small cars in the SX4's price range. And as with the rest of the Suzuki line, warranty is a strong selling point in itself; coverage includes a 100,000-mile/7-year/no-deductible powertrain warranty that can be transferred to subsequent owners.
What's new for 2009?
The big news for Suzuki's SX4 family of small cars is that they all get a new navigation system as standard equipment for 2009. The SX4 is the first vehicle under $16,000 to offer the feature as standard, according to Suzuki. Newly available with the navigation system is a Bluetooth hands-free calling interface, audible text messaging and real-time traffic information, along with many more information features such as gas prices and weather forecasts.
