Thumbs up Suzuki SX4 to arrive in India before Europe and Japan

In an unusual move, Suzuki would be launching their latest product SX4 Sedan in the Indian market before the car is launched in Japan and Europe.

Suzuki SX4 is due for a launch sometime later this month and it would be the Marutiís challenger to competing models like Honda City, Ford Fiesta and Hyundai Verna.

The company is likely to price the car at around Rs. 6.5-7.0 lakhs. Market analysts said that the company is targeted to sell around a lakh units per year.

Maruti Suzuki is likely to offer the car in India with integrated music system, auto climate control, adjustable steering and a glass antenna.

It basically replaces the Baleno sedan which Maruti stopped manufacturing last year. The car comes powered with the new age M series engine of Suzuki.

Since it will be close to Civic, Corolla in dimensions, do you think it will have a impact on this segment. As I had mentioned earlier, it will be positioned in the Civic segment in the U.S.

Yeah, but come on - Estilo is just a shrunken INNOVA which turned out real ugly [IMHO]
Lets give some better treatment to this 'soon to be out' - New Kid on the block...who Maruti is already calling DA MAN!

How about if they have confidently called "The Man , The Machine". Fingers crossed, lets see what is packaged for India.

well, i guess we really need to see how the car does. maruti has got its marketing in place, so they really know how to build a hype around the cars. And yeah, I really dont know how they are plannng on selling 1Lakh cars per year.
