Aha Nice Pictures. Is it a five speed auto or four speed auto. Did not like the chrome on the central console. Not much exterior changes.

Default about the car

the car looks almost same as the discontinued version

heart of the car is now VVT
minor change in power

color of dash board is very light chocolate-two tone or should i say three tone because the integrated music system panel is still grey.

the car now has a USB port

NO 'Blue n me' like feature:(

new alloys

wooden door finish

no change in ground clearance (thank god)


my black beast will be delivered today

Nice pics. Thanks PSI. If you ask me, i like the previous alloys better. They were Bolder than these! Interiors haven't changed much. Few subtle changes.

Congrats PSI! But for the hype, this is definitely a let down. The new interior fails to impress. I liked the wood work though.

Ah! that explains the intensity in your posts Thank you for the first ever pictures of new sx4. We heard that there will be minor modifications to the bumpers/grills and internals and looks like they are really minor. Are you going for auto? We will be eagerly looking forward to your driving impressions with the new heart sx4. Don't make us wait longer

Thanks for the pictures and details about the facelift.

will there be an increase in price? or will it remain the same? if there is any change how much over the existing one?

+1 to that. Why can't maruti provide better interiors on their cars? They need to get a crash course from Honda/GM/hyundai etc.

I like the new grill more than the old one. Eager to know about the specs and price.

Congrats! Man, that was fast. You are perhaps the first customer for the new SX4. It's pretty odd that they've started making deliveries without updating the website.

Detailed review please. Any changes to the rear seat?

I got my SX4 ZXi this July and was disappointed when I learnt that Maruti has decided to upgrade SX4. I thought I should have waited but after the release I am much happy by the one I own because the new superficial changes have failed to impress me. The 10 spoke alloys didn't impress me a lot and the new grille is ok. The only thing helpful to me is the USB port which I think can be upgraded during my next MASS visit. Can someone please post the pics of the USB Port? Where is it located?

Default new sx4 is good

congrats PSI and Cheville. the new sx4 really looks nice with much improved and automatic transmission we can expect the new sx4 to occupy a place in everyone's garage.
