Suzuki SX4t Turbo Concept to Debut at SEMA

October 29, 2008
The line of breathed-upon vehicles to debut at SEMA '08 just keeps on growing, and Suzuki is getting in on the game with the announcement of a few vehicles, including the SX4t Turbo Concept. Turbo boost gives the Suzuki SX4 Crossover a crisp jump in power to 221 horsepower and 208 pound-feet of torque.

To turn the spunky little 2009 Suzuki SX4 crossover into the angry SX4t Turbo Concept, Suzuki also adds a 38mm wastegate, GRIP springs, and a rear anti-roll bar all from a performance company called Road Race Motorsports. Slotted front discs and performance pads help bring all that turbocharged rush to a halt.

The designers even eliminated some exterior clutter to make the SX4 a little more street racer and a little less grocery getter. They removed the roof rack, installed a Road Race CarbonTrix carbon fiber hood, and even graced the A, B, C, and D pillars (this is basically a mini-wagon) with a complementary dark metallic gray finish. Below the waist, the concept is painted Suzuki Quicksilver metallic, reportedly a good match with the Rota 17-inch five-spoke wheels gripping 225/45R17 Yokohama Advan Neova tires.

The inside is equipped to match, with custom seat covers echoing the silver exterior, a "JDM Suzuki Swift" sport steering wheel, sequential-style shift knob and billet-drilled pedal set from Genuine Suzuki Accessories (this is all starting to sound very Scion-like). Not to forget the audio, the SX4t Turbo Concept has some bump courtesy of a Rockford Fosgate system with customized amp, sub, and speakers.--Colin Mathews
