Suzuki SX4 battles the Honda Civic

A bright red Suzuki SX4 sedan demo car does the rounds in Bangalore traffic to tease the potential buyer. Photo taken on Koramangala inner ring road.

The new SX4 sedan is positioned to compete with the classy and wildly popular Honda Civic that has taken Bangalore by storm. The Toyota Corolla is already struggling to keep pace with the Civic which has caught the popular imagination with its new styling. The battle between these three is going to be interesting to watch!

Some interesting facts about the SX4:
  • Developed by automakers Suzuki and Fiat
  • Car was designed by Italian Giorgetto Giugiaro who was recently award the title Car Designer of the century. He has more than 75 popular car designs to his credit!
  • Launched in the Geneva Motor show in 2006. Launched in India in mid 2007.
  • Assembled in Hungary, Japan and India (Mesar in Haryana)
Priced at Rs. 7,60,000 for the fully loaded ZXi (ex-showroom) around Rs. 5,00,000 lesser than the City, it sure is going to be a force to reckon with.
