EDITORS NOTEBOOK: 2008 Suzuki SX4 Hatchback, Day 2

Read;Rusty Blackwell’s comments on driving the 2008 Suzuki SX4 Hatchback.

I’ve been a pretty big fan of this car since I went on the launch in mid-2006. The add-on ducktail rear wing on this car looks pretty silly, I think, although it has a quality rubber feel to it. The overall looks of the SX4 are pretty funky, actually, but I’m sure taller drivers appreciate its abnormally tall height. The somewhat-strange-yet-fun-and-notchy five-speed gearbox is one of my favorite details of this car, along with its impressive interior materials for this price range. I tend to agree with Marc about the numbish steering, although it is quick in a way that accentuates the nimble handling of the Suzuki. A torque-boosting turbo would probably make this vehicle an All-Star in my book.
