When Maruti Suzuki launched the SX4 back in 2007, it was a runaway hit for the Manesar-based company but times have changed a lot since then. A slew of new launches from competitors meant that the SX4 was in a dire need of an upgrade to remain in contention. After months of speculations and rumours, Maruti has finally given the SX4 a facelift with changes made to the cars interiors, exteriors and engine to give some stiff competition to its rivals.

 

On to the mechanical front, the petrol variant of the SX4 is powered by the same 1.6-litre engine producing 104.7PS at 5600rpm and a peak torque of 145NM at 4100rpm while the 1.3-litre turbo-diesel pumps out 90PS @ 4000 rpm and 200Nm of torque @ 1750 rpm. While both the petrol and diesel engines remain un-tampered with on the new SX4, the point that will impress our mileage obsessed buyers will be the efficiency figures. Maruti has been successful in improving the mileage of the new car by 6 per cent over its predecessor and the petrol variant returns an efficiency figure of 16.5kmpl and its diesel sibling 21.79kmpl (manufacturer figures). The SX4 remains the only model in Maruti’s portfolio to have three different engine options and the CNG variant offers a claimed efficiency figure of 22.1km/kg.

Exterior changes on the new SX4 include a more pronounced bumper along with two-tone front grille, fog lamp with dual-tone garnish and electrically foldable outside rear view mirrors with built-in turn indicators. All this features have combined to give the new car a sportier stance and also the length of the car has been increased by 10mm owing to the revised bumper. Apart from the four standard colours the new SX4 gets additional two shades, Serene Blue and Granite Grey.
