My SX4 purchase is turning out to be a real wise decision!

The interiors are really well done. What I like about this car is that there is no compromises for cutting costs… right from the integrated
stereo to little things like the motorised mirror adjustments, the powerful map reading lights….everything is well done. All this and they still manage to get the model out at an excellent price.

The SX4’s integrated stereo does a lot to improve the interior look. I personally feel that in comparison, stereos in the city and Fiesta and other cars where you need to fit it as a separate piece gives a feeling of the part ’not belonging’ to the car….like a foreign object on the dashboard….totally different from the look and feel of the rest of the dashboard. SX4 does away with that problem…..it looks neat and stylish.

space is more comfortable ..The fuel efficiency is turning out to be the surprise factor. The engine being a new one, untested in Indian conditions, I had prepared myself for this some compromise here….but the car is giving me 10 kmpl before the first service (AC on most of the time). Of course it cannot match the Honda City, but i think this is pretty good for a Saloon with a 100 BHP pull.

The handling is pretty easy …..right from the steering to all the controls on the dashboard…even the stereo. Very comfortable in spite of the size. All in all its pretty comfortable handling both in city traffic and when you are zooming!

The engine is powerful and a real pleasure. Even in city traffic this is pretty useful…where once you get a bit of space, the car accelerates real fast, leaving the slowly moving vehicles behind in no time!

All in all, i am quite happy. I think its an ideal car for someone looking for a powerful car with all the bells and whistles loaded at a good price. One other factor that weighed in while buying is that you can’t go much wrong with a Maruti.

    My SX4 VVT BSIV arrived on7th Feb and so far it run 300 KM. It is a pleasure to drive and it was really surprising for me when I got 14KM/l in my first mileage check. This includes 100KM highway and 200KM city stop and go traffic with ACC at 27oC. I never went above 80KM/h and mostly driving at an average speed of 50-60KM/h. It seems the VVT technology works and it is a true BSIV engine. Honda will have a tough time to beat this value for money proposition by Maruti Suzuki
