Summary

4 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
-

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
When we told people we had bought a SX4 they weren't familiar with the car but every one seems to like it and are especially suprised by price, they all think it cost a lot more than it actually did!

Would you buy this car again and why?
We wanted a high up vehicle and liked the chunky 'soft roader' look, tried a few different cars and found this to be the best value for money against it's rivals,, It's not as big as a Qashqai, drives better than a Juke and we found the Dacia Duster to be a lot costlier when you add options, the SX4 SZ4 has good kit as standard but would have liked a DAB radio and the trim seems a bit cheap although the car is well built and solid.

What are you likely to buy next?
Have only just bought this one and will look to keep it for as long as we can.

Driving it

4 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Very easy to drive, quiet engine and pulls well, not too much road noise considering height, it's comfortable and all switches / controls are within easy reach, haven't had it on motorway yet but performs well on a roads and doesn't wander like other suv's we tried.

What's it like to park?
Excellent visibility all round but will be fitting reversing sensors as is quite a lot higher than our previous car. Steering light and easy to manouvere.
