Suzuki Australia has enhanced its popular SX4 line-up with the addition of a new AWD model.
The all-paw variant will mirror its two-wheel drive siblings for specifications – with the new SX4 AWD and SX4 AWD ‘S’ now available.
Available exclusively as a hatchback, the SX4 AWD features a 107kW 2.0-litre petrol engine dual airbags, ABS anti-lock brakes with EBD, air conditioning and an MP3 compatible sound system with steering wheel mounted controls as standard.
“With a starting price of just $21,990, the addition of an entry level SX4 AWD will significantly strengthen the line-up and make all-wheel drive even more affordable to lifestyle hungry consumers,” said Suzuki Australia General Manager Tony Devers.
Both models utilise Suzuki’s i-AWD (intelligent All Wheel Drive) system which incorporates three switchable modes:
The system also incorporates an electronically controlled wet-type multi-plate clutch coupling which modulates the degree of magnetic clutch action to match traction needs.
Despite its seemingly sedate looks, an adaption of the SX4 AWD has gone on to great success at the WRC – which could also spawn a new hot variant from Suzuki.
SX4 AWD 5-speed manual $21,990
SX4 AWD 4-speed automatic $23,990
SX4 AWD S 5-speed manual $24,990
SX4 AWD S 4-speed automatic $26,990
The new SX4 AWD will go on sale on August 1.
