From Suzuki press: The all-new SX4 features a versatile, rigid five-door design, an available all-wheel-drive system, and for the U.S. market, a sophisticated fuel-sipping 2.0-liter DOHC engine.
"Suzuki is known for its success with small vehicles in Asia and Europe," said Koichi Suzuki, president, ASMC Automotive Operations. "The all-new 2007 Suzuki SX4 is designed to provide consumers in the United States a fun-to-drive vehicle that is also practical and economical."
The new Suzuki SX4 offers an available, sophisticated all-wheel-drive system that sends power to the rear wheels as needed with no additional input necessary from the driver. Called the Three-Mode Switchable AWD system, it features a selector switch on the center console that allows the driver to select from three modes: 2WD, AUTO (AWD High) and LOCK (AWD Lock). Customers in the United States will have a choice of a five-speed manual transmission or an available four-speed automatic transmission.
