American Suzuki Motor Corporation announced a specially designed U.S. version of the all-new Suzuki SX4 vehicle is slated to hit dealer showrooms in the United States next year. Production of the European version of the SX4 in Eastern Europe also was announced yesterday.
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.
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.
Production of the European version of the SX4 begins this month at the Magyar Suzuki Corporation assembly plant in Esztergom, Hungary. The world debut of the Suzuki SX4 is scheduled for the Geneva Motor Show in March 2006 and the North American introduction of the U.S. version of the Suzuki SX4 is slated for April 2006 in conjunction with the New York International Auto Show. The SX4 is slated to go on sale in the United States in the late summer of 2006.
