Today morning I got a call from dealer, he said SX4 ZXi are shipped and will be arriving soon....I hope it will be available on weekend for test drive.

"Whatever the final design, it'll still be much better than the Baleno... personally, I hated the new city when it was first launched... but over time, the car has grown on me... not to forget of course that honda made subtle changes to the design over time, which maruti can always do if required!!"

Actually what Wimwian says makes sense. They may launch the Sx4 like we all know it looks, and then maybe after an year or so they may provide a facelift to give it a refreshed appeal. Maybe they'll introduce the auto tranny then?

Did he mention on-road pricing? Actually, any pricing details at all?

An auto tranny maybe. Actually, most likely, I guess.

But as far as a face lift from Maruti goes, it is likely to be limited to a redesigned grille and no more. And that too in maybe another 3 years.

The chinese sx4 site keeps showing the word UPRIGHT,as I have no clue about the chinese language could not understand much as the rest is in chinese and there seems no alternative english option.

Also initially the site shows the car is a combination of an SUV and a sedan.Am a little confused ,guess everything will be clear on May 7,and yes May 7 seems to be more or less confirmed.

Torgue: 144 Nm at 3500 to 4500 rpm
Top speed: 180KMph

Yups, IMO they've taken a tall-boyish crossover and hastily added a boot to come with a sedan that can replace the baleno... going by the treatment meted out to the Fusion in India, bringing a crossover to india would've been a huge risk... one that maruti wasn't ready to take!! Whether the strategy's good or bad only time will tell... but my guess is, the sedan will see far more nos in sales than the crossover ever would've...

The Hindu News Update Service

The 1.6 litre engine SX4 Sedan with the 4 valves would produce a high power of 102 bhp @5500 rpm.

The Sedan would offer features like

If you look at today's Hindu,, which is here, it talks abt a 1.3L Diesel engine too.

Now, is this true or a reporting error ?

Maybe true.MARUTI has become aggresive and is applying the right strategies.
