"For 2010, Suzuki created the SportBack model based on their SX4 Crossover with the goal of creating something a little more sport-oriented. A bump in power, from 143 to 150 hp, was engineered into this hatchback..."
Strengths: AWD or 2WD - button switch over, Heated seats/outside mirrors, GPS, Bluetooth, Daytime running lights, roomy & average of 32 mpg.
Weaknesses: The worst stereo system in history..truly.
Summary: I love, love this vehicle. I am a faithful Honda owner but this vehicle has so many more standard options than I could get on a Honda Civic Hatchback. First off, AWD kicks butt in the snow/ice. I like that I can switch it to 2WD, which I couldn't do with my Honda CR-V. I get better gas mileage but I do wish the gas tank was bigger (10 gal).
The cargo area is huge and you can fold the back seats forward so they are right up against the front seats (I hope that makes sense). The heated seats are great - I don't know how I lived w/o this feature before.
I think this car has a lot of "zoom-zoom", but I also prefer manual transmission as opposed to automatic, so there may be a difference I don't know about.
Whether you have a teenager needing a car or you yourself want a reliable, economical, and darn cute car - you must go buy a Suzuki SX4 - Touring edition.

-Fit and finish
A bit more power is needed.
Summary: The SX4 is a very interesting vehicle. It offers a lot of features that its competitors don't and thats a real shame. Interior room is decent and the same is true with cargo room. Power is OK, but again the FIT and Yaris are no fast lane machines either, however it would be nice if more was on tap with better EPA.
