Preview: 2008 Suzuki SX4 sedan

ON SALE: NOW / $14,000 (est.)

The charismatic Suzuki SX4 hatchback was one of last year’s most pleasant new-car surprises. It offers standard all-wheel drive, a well-trimmed interior, a long warranty, and lots of real-car extras, all in a flingable package that induces more smiles than any other Suzuki car in recent memory. For 2008, Suzuki adds a sedan version of the SX4. Unfortunately, this iteration loses a lot of its character, since it’s less cool-looking and available only with front-wheel drive. Still, the sedan weighs nearly 200 pounds less than the pricier hatchback, so it might be more fun on the road.
