Suzuki SX4 / Overview / Chassis

The Suzuki SX4 provides crisp, predictable handling designed to satisfy European driving tastes. This has been achieved by carefully matching the suspension characteristics to the highly rigid platform. Extensive fine-tuning of the chassis was conducted in Europe to ensure ride and handling performance meet European market preferences.

The body is an evolution fundamental design that helped carry the Suzuki SX4 to numerous awards throughout the world, including Car magazine's Car of the Year in 2006 when the model was first launched. Its high levels of bending and torsional rigidity and reinforced suspension mounts allow the front MacPherson struts and rear torsion beam suspension to perform to their full potential. Wide 1,500/1,495 mm front and rear tracks (1,495/1,495 mm for 4x4 models) and 205/60R16 tyres further contribute to the stable ride quality.
