The vehicle was introduced in only petrol model initially, but it failed to generate good volume. Soon, the company felt the need of diesel version and in 2011 MSI launched the SX4 powered by the 1.3-litre DDiS (Multi-jet) engine.

After seeing the increasing competition and regular fall in SX4 sales, Maruti Suzuki India is all set to introduce an-all new mid-size sedan, which will be the successor for the current generation SX4.

This engine gets the MPFi fuel supply system and has been equipped with a 5-speed manual transmission.

The diesel version of the sedan gets the 1.3-litre DDis oil burner producing 88.8bhp of top power at 4000rpm and a max torque of 200Nm at 1750rpm. With CRDi fuel supply system, the engine becomes more fuel efficient. The power is transmitted to front wheels via a five-speed manual transmission.

Performance & Handling

Maruti Suzuki SX4 is being offered in both petrol and diesel guise. While the petrol mill gets the refined 1.6-litre with variable valve timing (VVT) produces an impressive 103bhp, the diesel version features the very famous 90bhp, 1.3-litre 'MultiJet' engine. At idle speeds, the sedan is silent. When it comes to handling, the driver doesn't feel great at low or average speeds. The vehicle offers minimal turbo-lag and the diesel mill reaches its 5200 read line without any drop in power. The company has used the detent pin which significantly improved the gearshifts.

Maruti SX4 offers a balance, stable and comfortable drive on the busy Indian roads. The top-of-the line model has a ground clearance of 180mm, which is excellent and helps the driver to drive the sedan through bumpy and rugged terrains. However, the entry level and mid variants gets 170mm of ground clearance, which is more than enough to drive on urban conditions.

The sedan offers an excellent acceleration and pickup to the car enthusiasts across the nation. the diesel powered SX4 accelerates to 100kmph from stand still in just 13-14 seconds, which is quite an impressive figure within its league. It remains stable at a top speed of 154kmph. The petrol version takes just 12.1 seconds to reach 100kmph mark from standstill and it can attain a top speed of 170kmph.

Braking System

The company has incorporated the SX4 sedan with robust braking system with a high quality suspension system. The front wheels of the car have been equipped with a ventilated disc type of braking mechanism, while the rear wheels features a drum type system. Moreover, the vehicle also gets the advanced Anti-lock braking system (ABS) with Electronic Brake Force Distribution (EBD), which avoids wheel-lock on sudden braking and skidding on slippery roads. To offer a stable and hassle free journey on the Indian road conditions, the front axle of the vehicle gets an independent suspension with gas filled McPherson Strut type of a system with anti roll bar. The rear axle sports a semi-independent torsion beam with gas filled shock absorbers.


The SX4 sedan is equipped with a variable valve timing based 1.6-litre petrol engine, which offers a decent fuel economy of 11.5kmpl in city and 15kmpl on highways. However, the mileage numbers could be better as other cars in segment are more fuel efficient than SX4. On the other hand, the 1.3-litre DDiS diesel engine paired with CRDi fuel supply system that delivers an impressive 15kmpl of mileage in City and 21.5kmpl on highways.

Safety Features

Maruti Suzuki SX4 comes equipped with several active and passive safety features. It get dual front airbags for both passenger and driver, 3-point ELR (energy load reduction) front and rear seat belts with pre-tensioners and force limiters along with a 2-point lap belt for the rear centre passenger. Additionally, the sedan also features the child loack, height adjustable front seat belts, side impact protection beams, an iCATS (intelligent Computerised Anti Theft system) engine immobilizer, ABS (Anti-Lock Braking System) with EBD (Electronic Brake Distribution Force) and few others.


Maruti SX4 comes equipped with loads of comfort and advanced features, making it a good value for money product. The high ground clearance and excellent NVH (Noise, Vibration and harshness) level and braking system makes it fun to drive even over the rugged and bumpy Indian roads. However, when it comes to competition, SX4 lacks as the competitors offer better looks, mileage and features. The low maintenance cost, reliability, good ride quality, resale value and excellent sales network for Maruti are the few positives with SX4 sedan.


Launched in 2007, Maruti SX4 was an instant hit, but with the introduction of new generation Honda City and Hyundai Verna, and with addition of new vehicles in the segment, it started losing its charm. It is a well known fact that Honda City has been the country's most reliable and top-selling mid-sized sedan, however in petrol version only. Now, the company introduced the diesel version too with a whooping 26kmpl of mileage, making it India's most fuel efficient product. So, on mileage, exteriors, interiors and features fronts City sedan outsmarts the SX4. However, the diesel variant of SX4 is much more refined and offers less NVH levels, while the first drive impression of City diesel says that NVH level could be better. On the other hand, the City in petrol version is the best product in its league.

Hyundai Verna too is an excellent product, but when it comes to driveability and handling Maruti SX4 scores maximum. Verna is an excellent sedan to drive through busy urban roads as the steering feels very light, however on highways its light steering become its disadvantage. On the other hand, SX4 steering is more precise and it gets more stiffer on high speeds and gets lighter in city driving and at low speeds.


Masculine built, spacious interior, impressive drivability


Petrol sedan mileage could be better, looks outdated when compared to the new-gen models in competition

Maruti Suzuki SX4 Expert Review

Maruti Suzuki SX4 Ownership Experience Maruti Suzuki launched the SX4 in 2007. Immediately after its launch, the sedan became very popular with the enthusiasts as it was one of the very few cars in the C segment to have such a powerful engine. In addition, it also was a bolder looking Maruti Suzuki which broke the somewhat stereotypical image of the manufacturer. Macho looks, powerful engine and a trustworthy brand, the SX4 seems to have it all. SX4 went on to become the segment leader before the Honda City stepped in and took the market by storm. The City had plush interiors and a premium car feel which Maruti could not provide. The SX4 got a midlife facelift in 2013 where the c.... Read More

Good :

Great to drive, large tyres, high ground clearance, good all round view, very good turning circle - impressive in hill stations, large boot space with light, large mirrors- no need for small extra mirrors, good turbo and not much of turbo lag in city driving. large headlights with adjustment, plenty of cubby holes for knick-knacks. Inexpensive to maintain and easily servicible

Bad :

Better in car entertainment, leather upholstry as standard with rear parking sensors. Slightly more powerful engine, like Fiat multijet 1.6L or 1.9L. Automatic version should be a great boon in both petrol and diesel versions.
