2010 Suzuki SX4 vs. Its Competition

2010 Suzuki SX4 Crossover
John Voelcker John Voelcker Senior Editor

Like the Suzuki SX4 Crossover, the Subaru Impreza hatchback comes with standard all-wheel drive.

But the Impreza starts more than $2,000 higher than the SX4 hatchback.

The Impreza may feel more substantial, but the two are tied for interior space.

Those torn between the SX4 sedan and hatchback might consider the Dodge Caliber, a hatchback with a more sedan-like profile and some useful convenience options.

However, all-wheel drive is no longer offered on the Caliber.

Equal to the SX4 in value for money, if not in style and cleverness, is the Nissan Versa, an especially low-priced entry with a roomy, comfortable interior and a well-equipped feature list.

Quick Specs
7.6
The 2010 Suzuki SX4 delivers cheerful refinement at a remarkably low price; its only Achilles' heel is its fuel efficiency.
7.4
The 2010 Dodge Caliber has room to spare for adults-but it's short on refinement, value, and safety equipment.
8.0
The 2010 Nissan Versa is one of the best-value cars available on the market. Just remember that at its cheapest, you won’t be getting too much in the way of features.
7.2
With its standard all-wheel-drive system, the 2010 Subaru Impreza automatically has a leg up over many of its rivals in the small car segment. Throw in its strong performance and safety credentials and the Subaru is hard to beat.
