Maruti SX4 PictureMaruti SX4 Review by Expert

Positioned as a muscle car with tag line ‘Men are back’, Maruti SX4 stands apart from the crowd. The engine that thumps inside the SX4 is the super turbo DDIS engine with VGT technology that assures a mileage of 21.5 kmpl (as tested by ARAI). Maruti SX4 also comes powered with VVT engine that produces maximum output of 104.7 PS at 5600 rpm and assures a mileage of 15.5 kmpl.
Maruti SX4 has been making headlines since it has been introduced as the ‘SX4 Green’ with I GPI technology that can be powered via both CNG and petrol. The mileage offered in the CNG variant is 21.4 km/kg. Be it any engine that you choose, Maruti SX4 is sure to give you a ride of your life. The engine will make its presence felt pleasingly of course as it roars on the road.
The Indo-Japanese car makers have given the SX4 a mean machine look and it looks as if though a bull is all ready to charge on you which is apparent from its flared nostrils shaped headlights and chiselled front body. The honeycomb grille adds to the overall appeal; ten spoke alloy wheels give the car a classy touch; wraparound fog lamps lend clear vision in heavy winters. Finally, the tail lamps lend an aesthetic appeal to the Maruti SX4.
Maruti SX4 PictureThe interiors of the Maruti SX4 are just as entreating as the exterior. The illuminated audio control mounted on the steering wheels offers both utility and character; the steering can be tilted to a comfortable level; the stereo system lends music to your ear while you cruise in the Maruti SX4; automatic temperature control cools the car uniformly at a desired temperature; the USB ports lets you plug in mobile or portable player so that you can groove to your playlist; internally adjustable ORVM or outside rear view mirrors save you the trouble of sticking your hands out to adjust it every time; variable instrument cluster displays both time and temperature; the swanky antenna embedded in the rear glass prevents both theft and tampering; the key spot gets illuminated in the dark so it’s easy to locate; the rear glass provides a clear vision in tough weathers. 
Maruti SX4 PictureThe Maruti SX4 is not all about swank and muscle. It’s fully loaded with safety features too that include airbags, 3 point ELR seat belt pre tensioners and force limiters, child lock rear doors prevent tampering and accidents, iCATS incorporated in most Maruti cars disable ignition if a factory fitted key is not used thus preventing thefts. Other safety features include ABS, EBD and side impact protection beam. Lastly, the ample ground clearance eats up all the bumps and leaves your jumping to the trampoline.
The alluring Maruti SX4 is available in six exciting colours- midnight black, silky silver, pearl arctic white, azure grey, oyster blue and clear beige. With everything added up, Maruti SX4 is the best premium machine you can lay hands on in a budget.


Maruti SX4 Rivals

At the time of its launch Maruti SX4 had handful of challengers in the mid size segment, which have now increased to some decent numbers. Here we compare the latest sensation Nissan Sunny with Maruti SX4. The Nissan Sunny is bit larger in length when compared to SX4, but nearly same when width is measured. The Maruti SX4 has got a tall appearance, which directly calls for imposing, compared to reserved and calm looking Nissan Sunny.  Since it carries an elevated image, the ground clearance is better against Sunny. The boot space at Maruti sedan is lesser compared to store-room-like in Japanese sedan.  In the inside, both the sedans have tried their level best to provide a premium feel in the cabin. The material used in two is more or less of same quality, but if talked about the features and comfort at rear; the Sunny is on the higher side with better legroom; remember CAAAR. Talking about the racing DNA in both the vehicles, Maruti SX4 performs well ahead of Nissan Sunny, be it diesel or petrol version Maruti is peppier. Coming to the mileage part, both claim to be near about same. However, here Maruti offers its premium sedan with fleet of options to choose from that starts with conventional diesel, petrol and goes up to eco-friendly CNG and Automatic Transmission (AT) in the petrol version. This makes it perfect buy for the price and efficiency concerned Indian buyer. Maruti is not only offering true value for money, but also its nation-wide stress free after sales service to its consumers. Moreover, at this point Nissan lacks due to its limited reach in sales and service aspect in the country.
