Suzuki SX4 Hatchback 1.6 GLX 5d (2007/07) - Owner Review

The size - it's got a big-sized feel, but is still a sensibly sized car so fits in an average garage.

Suzuki SX4 Hatchback (06-14)

Summary

4 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
You're willing to try something different - not just go with the "obvious" makes and models.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
Nobody that I know had even heard of an SX4 before I got mine (was it just me that the adverts reached?). However, absolutely everyone has been really impressed with it. They all like the chunky look of it and the fact that underneath it is really just an "ordinary" car not a gas-guzzling "Chelsea Tractor". You get the looks without the costs on both your pocket and the environment.

Would you buy this car again and why?
Probably. I love the size of it along with all of it's practicalities. However, I hope to keep this one for a few years so perhaps by then Suzuki will be a "main stream" car manufacturer and have come up with something even better.

What are you likely to buy next?
I don't plan on buying anything for a while but we looked at the Swift Sport at the same time as the SX4 and my husband is really rather taken with that . . .

Franchise

Did you buy this car new?
New

What price did you pay?
£11,300

May 2007

Got a really good deal on my part exchange - and 0% finance which was great!

Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
Liked the look of the car from the adverts and it was just as good in real life.

Very helpful, not at all pushy.

Driving it

4 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
The driving position is excellent, and there is enough power for motorway driving, while still being happy in town. I had a Corsa 1.8 SRi before this and was worried that the smaller engine and bigger car combination might make it seem sluggish - but I can't say that I've noticed any difference so far.

What's it like to park?
No more difficult than any other car.

Living with it

4 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
Not yet - although we're still struggling with the whole key-less entry thing. We'll get used to it, but it does take some getting used to.

What's most practical about your car?
The size - it's got a big-sized feel, but is still a sensibly sized car so fits in an average garage.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
This is the first car I've had with climate control - which is great!
