new suzuki sx4 goes unnoticed in geneva

Irony is a cruel mistress. Just as Suzuki’s American auto sales arm is winding down, the newest version of the SX4 was revealed at Geneva, and it doesn’t look bad at all – save for the awful snot green shade.

A switchable AWD system will allow drivers to choose between one of four modes. Two super low emissions powerplants, both 1.6L 4-cylinders (a gas and a diesel), will be offered. The diesel emits just 110 grams of CO2 per km, nearly in line with the benchmark 100 grams that the Prius emits. The diesel gets a 6 speed manual while the gas car loses a cog. A CVT is the only choice for those who don’t want to shift. The Hungarian-built SX4 will obviously not be coming to the States, but there’s a chance that Canadian-plated versions may end up on American roads sometime in the future.

    How many forgettable look-a-likes like this already exist? Who needs one more from a company that's about to go lights out?

    Modernized Vitara, bring over the Swift and make a hot hatch money losing version, make that S-cross thing, Kizashi is good, but name it anything else. Take risks on styling, Super Bowl advertising. It would at least be a start and money might start flowing 5 years. But no, they gave up.
