SAFETY | 7 out of 10

Expert Quotes:

'Good,' frontal offset; 'good,' side impact; 'marginal,' rear impact
IIHS

Not yet rated
NHTSA




Especially relative to other small-car models, the Suzuki SX4 has a strong set of safety features—and there's no compromise for base models. Side and side-curtain bags are included, along with electronic stability control and four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes—in a class in which rear drums are the norm. And for 2011, rear side airbags have been added to the roster, along with larger rear head restraints.

In Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) tests, the SX4 has earned top 'good' ratings for frontal offset and side impact, though it only received a 'marginal' score in the seat-based rear-impact test—indicating a higher chance of whiplash or neck injury.

The SX4 hasn't yet been rated in the revised (and more stringent) federal NCAP tests introduced for 2011. But in the former federal tests, both the Suzuki SX4 Sport and Crossover earned four out of five stars in NHTSA frontal impact tests, and both styles achieved a perfect five-star rating in side-impact tests.

Visibility from the driver's seat is particularly good, with the upright seating and dropped window line providing a better-than-average view.

Conclusion

The SX4's strong list of standard safety features is noteworthy, but its safety ratings themselves aren't class-leading.

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.
