Reassuring safety

Suzuki SX4 / Overview / Reassuring safety

The Suzuki SX4 inspires confidence with its extensive array of safety features. Active safety elements include ABS with electronic brake-force distribution (EBD), standard on all models together with rear disc brakes for enhanced braking performance.

Overall Suzuki SX4 has an outstandingly crashworthy structure, which helped it gain four Stars for adult occupant in Euro NCAP testing. Extensive use is made of high tensile steel and tailored blanks in the car's construction to achieve strength without the penalty of added weight. Front and rear crush zones absorb impact energy, while the frame design directs much of the impact energy away from the highly reinforced cabin.

In the cabin the driver enjoys a commanding position at the wheel with a wide field of vision. Front, side and curtain airbags are provided on all models, together with front pre tensioners and force-limiters for front seatbelts; three-point belts with emergency locking retractors are provided on all rear seats and ISOFIX child seat anchor points with top tether mountings.

Suzuki SX4 also offers high levels of specific protection for pedestrians and child passengers, measures which, at launch, secured the model three-star Euro NCAP ratings in both categories, a particularly impressive result for a compact car.

Service intervals are every 9,000 miles and all Suzuki SX4's have a three year, 60,000 miles warranty in line with other Suzuki models.
