Review of Suzuki Sx4 Crossover

Updated on April 18, 2016

Review of Suzuki Sx4 Crossover

I became the owner of a Suzuki sx4 crossover in September of 2008. At that time I purchased a 2009 Suzuki SX4 Crossover. I have to admit this was not a happy day for me. I am a very sentimental person, even when it comes to my vehicle. I was the proud owner of a 1999 Chevy Tracker aka Bertha. My Chevy Tracker had four wheel drive. We live in the mountains, so this is a must for at least one vehicle in our family. I paid around 19-20,000 for my Chevy tracker and that was about all I could afford. My Tracker had never broken down on me, and I had invested about 500.00 in maintenance in this vehicle in the 10 years that I owned it. Unfortunately my tracker was dying a slow and painful death from rust, mostly due to our winter road conditions in this area. It was time to let her go.

Why did I Choose a Suzuki Sx4 Crossover?

Lucky for me my Tracker was still functioning, so I had some time to research before running off to the car dealership. The Suzuki Sx4 Crossover is advertised for 15,999, so it was in my price range. It has all wheel drive and a decent ground clearance. Honestly it is quite difficult to find an all wheel drive vehicle in this range, so it pretty much sealed the deal.

A Long Day at the Suzuki Car Dealership

No matter how many times I buy a vehicle, it never ceases to amaze me that it actually takes all day. By the end of the day this is what I learned...........

1. It just is not fun (not for me anyway)

2. They will never offer you what dear sweet Bertha is really worth.

3. When you add the All Wheel Drive Feature and taxes and fees the price is really around


The Suzuki Sx4 crossover is a very small cute vehicle, and the best way I can describe the style is a hatchback. The size on the inside is almost identical to my Chevy Tracker, and that is very small for most families.

My Review of the 2009 Suzuki Sx4 Crossover

The 2009 Suzuki Sx4 Crossover is an excellent vehicle for the price. It is the only all wheel drive vehicle that I know of that has the "locked in feature".

This is my favorite thing about the vehicle. When you know the conditons are very bad, which they often are in my area, there is a button that "locks in" the all four wheels. I use this feature all the time, and as far as I can tell that is the same as four wheel drive. The vehicle fits my family of four comfortably, but I would not recommend it for larger families. The hatchback trunk is very small. In fact when I go grocery shopping I often use the back seat and the trunk. I want to add that my husband has the sx4 sedan. It is a sharp looking vehicle, and has the same exact inside as my crossover. If we did not need one All Wheel Drive vehicle, I would prefer the sedan. It was about 4,000 cheaper and has a gigantic trunk. We use his car when we travel.

Have you ever had a car like my Tracker, that you would have kept forever?
