Expert Quotes:

Even when loaded...the SX4 costs less than $17,000
Motor Trend

Better equipped in base form than many [of] its competitors
Kelley Blue Book

Standard features list includes air conditioning, remote keyless entry

The 2008 Suzuki SX4 offers a tremendous value in the automotive world, but the downside to a low purchase price is that some key features are conspicuously absent.

Kelley Blue Book reports that the Suzuki SX4 is "better equipped in base form than many its competitors" and says the 2008 Suzuki SX4's "crowning touch is its easy-to-use three-mode intelligent All-Wheel-Drive system (i-AWD)." Edmunds also mentions "16-inch alloy wheels, keyless entry, air-conditioning, a CD/MP3 player and full power accessories" as standard features of the 2008 Suzuki SX4.

Options for the Suzuki SX4 come in "packages," according to Kelley Blue Book; "the Convenience Package includes cruise control, heated outside mirrors, automatic climate control and steering wheel-mounted audio and cruise control buttons." Edmunds reports "the Touring Package offers automatic climate control, an upgraded nine-speaker audio system with an in-dash CD changer, heated outside mirrors and the SmartPass keyless entry and engine-start system." Unlike similar vehicles, however, these options do not add substantially to the Suzuki SX4 price; Motor Trend notes that "even when loaded with the available Touring package...the SX4 costs less than $17,000." However, many reviews read by point out that some features are missing from the 2008 Suzuki SX4. Mother Proof is particularly vocal when decrying "the fact that there's no auxiliary input for plugging in an iPod—hard to believe." This feature is becoming ubiquitous on modern vehicles, but for the Suzuki SX4, ConsumerGuide says it's only available as a $160 option, and that an adapter and a "satellite radio" system are the only stand-alone options on the 2008 Suzuki SX4.

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.
