Following in the footsteps of its European twin, the Fiat Sedici, Suzuki is slightly reworking its SX4 Crossover for next year. You'd be forgiven if you didn't notice - all of the revisions are quite subtle - but the whole front fascia has been slightly remodeled. The most obvious change is to the grille area, which now has a slightly smaller opening that's flanked by new concave recesses for the fog lights. Apparently, the faux rear skid-plate has been redone as well. Like we said: minor, discreet changes.

Inside, the Sedici has been upgraded with dual zone climate controls, so it would make sense that the SX4 would benefit from this new feature as well. We don't expect any powertrain changes, which is just fine with us. We thought that the SX4 was plenty peppy with its standard 2.0-liter DOHC engine's 143 horsepower and 136 lb-ft of torque when we had the sedan model in our garage earlier this year.

      It would be nice if it looked more like the
      WRC car (did), but it would be even nicer if they offered a turbo AWD model. I never really considered Suzuki before, but I drove a SX4 and I really liked the way it handled.

      Subtle is an understatement. It makes you wonder why they even bothered on the exterior changes.

        I guess that maybe that they are worried about spending extra money in such harsh times or its simple appeal. Personally, I felt that they should upgrade the plastics a step further especially above the dash area where it meets the windscreen. I didn't like seeing the vin numbers embed on some cheap piece of plastic in that particular area and the inner pillars should be covered in the same cloth like materials used in VWs. Plastic makes it look kind of cheap and not uncanny.

      How many people actually buy a Suzuki? I hardly see any on the road. I'm surprised they're still in the car business.

        that's because its main products are k-cars which are solely sold in Japan
        and US market isn't important
