Benefits of Driving a 2012 Suzuki SX4 Sedan

The Suzuki SX4 offers an excellent array of features for an astonishingly low price. Even with a starting price of just under $14,000, the base Suzuki is a value-laden car that offers the same efficient, powerful engine as in upper-level trims and a solid standard equipment list. At the top of the line, the all-wheel drive Technology hatchback doesn't break the $20,000 barrier, yet bears an impressive set of equipment. With the manual transmission, the SX4 achieves a respectable 26 combined EPA estimated miles per gallon.

What's new for 2012?

The LE Anniversary Edition has been dropped, as has the Sport GTS trim. A new LE Popular trim returns after a year's absence, providing a leather-wrapped steering wheel, transmission shift paddles, cruise control and remote keyless entry. Stability control is now standard across the SX4 lineup.

Model Strengths

  • Low starting price
  • available all-wheel drive
  • good maneuverability
  • wide range of available trim levels

Safety Ratings help

What do the Safety Ratings mean?

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) performs independent crash testing of new vehicles and then assigns them a score based on their performance. The overall crash test rating is based on how a vehicle performs in the following tests:

Driver Crash Grade:

Measures the chance of a serious injury to a crash test dummy that is placed in a driver's seat and driven into a fixed barrier at 35 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less chance of injury.

Passenger Crash Grade:

Similar to the driver crash grade, only now the focus is on the passenger.

Rollover Resistance:

Simulates an emergency lane change to measure the likelihood of a vehicle rolling over. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less risk of rollover.

Side Impact Crash Test - Front:

Focuses on the front side of a vehicle. It simulates crashes that can occur in intersections by striking a 3,015-pound weight against the side of a vehicle at 38.5 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 5 percent or less chance of injury.

Side Impact Crash Test - Rear:

Similar to the front side impact test only now the focus is on the rear passenger.
