2009 model year changes

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. Safety is also stepped up for '09, as electronic stability control is now a standard feature on all SX4 Crossovers; however it's only offered with the top Touring Package on the SX4 Sport sedans. Other new features for 2009 include split-folding rear seats and armrests for the driver and passenger. Also, automatic climate control, heated mirrors and fog lamps are now bundled into the Touring Package available on the Sport sedan.

Special features for 2009

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.
