Expert Quotes:

This Garmin unit was almost universally praised by our staff
Edmunds' Inside Line

The navigation system has only a 4.8-inch screen, but Suzuki does a good job of mounting it in the car and integrating it with the audio system.
CNET

the auxiliary music player input jack will please audiophiles
Motor Trend

Thanks to that nav system, Bluetooth hands-free calling is part of the package, too.

Base sedan versions of the 2011 Suzuki SX4 pose a strong value against some of the lowest-priced cars in the market, while well-equipped SportBack and Crossover models go after a slightly more upscale portion of the small-car market.

The base SX4 sedan comes as a stripped-down, very simple small car—albeit one with power windows, power mirrors, and a full set of safety features, but no sound system. A new Anniversary Edition package adds to the base car 17-inch alloy wheels plus a four-speaker CD sound system, air conditioning, and keyless entry.

SX4 SportBack models are equipped with a raft of standard features, including power windows, locks, and mirrors; fog lights; an AM/FM/CD/MP3 audio system ready for Sirius Satellite Radio; a six-disc CD changer; keyless start; 17-inch alloy wheels; and a trip computer. Similarly, the base 2010 Suzuki SX4 Crossover—which is still the lowest-priced all-wheel-drive car in the U.S.—includes 16-inch alloy wheels, power windows and locks, keyless entry, air conditioning, and a four-speaker CD sound system. Suzuki also offers an accessory iPod interface that can be used via steering-wheel controls, with playlists and track information appearing on the audio display.

Suzuki now only offers the Garmin touchscreen navigation system in models with the Technology Package. Its flip-up 4.3-inch touchscreen display can be removed, and the system comes preloaded with mapping software that includes hotels, restaurants, gas stations, ATMs, and more. It's also fully integrated into the SX4's audio system, and for 2011 also includes Google search, real-time traffic and weather, and several other new features.

An optional upgraded TRIP system adds hands-free calling via Bluetooth, and text messaging is delivered both on-screen and audibly.

Conclusion

Especially in its well-equipped SportBack and all-wheel-drive Crossover models, the SX4 offers a lot of features for the money.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
