Finally, a vehicle expected to be Europe-only is on its way! The Hungarian-built Suzuki SX4 will navigate its way to North American dealers and be priced similarly to other compact hatchbacks on the market, according to Automotive News.
Interestingly, the vehicle will come with a drive system that offers three settings -- 2WD, four-wheel drive that takes front-wheel slippage into consideration, and full-on 4WD. Power will likely come courtesy Suzuki's 1.5-liter DOHC 4-pot, or an uprated 1.6-liter mill with variable valve timing. A 1.9-liter turbodiesel will likely not make the trip from overseas.
Suzuki hopes to move about 40,000 units per year, but has yet to announce a U.S. sales target. No word on what fate will befall Suzuki's similarly-aimed Aerio, but expect to see the SX4 in showrooms this September.
