Interior & comfort Rating

1.4 out of 5

Put simply, the Suzuki SX4 is loud and not comfortable by current standards. The 1.6-litre petrol engine manages to make quite a din, especially when you take the car up to motorway speeds and the revs rise.

There's still some road noise at speed and the SX4's tall dimensions result in quite a lot of wind buffeting around the windscreen pillars in particular.

Comfort is decidedly average at best and the Suzuki's ride does get somewhat rattled over potholes or speed bumps around town.

Suzuki SX4 dashboard

The Suzuki SX4 was on sale for a long time – from 2006-2014 – and the interior is the most obvious visual clue to this. The plastics are hard and low-rent and the general level of fit and finish is pretty poor compared to what you get in most of its rivals.

The interior isn’t particularly stylish either, but the instrumentation and controls are at least clear to read and easy to use.

Suzuki SX4 equipment

There’s a reasonable amount of equipment provided, but notable omissions include Bluetooth phone connectivity and sat nav. Still, all models come with a height-adjustable driver’s seat, electric front windows, a trip computer, manual air-conditioning, an MP3-compatible CD player and electric door mirrors.

The SZ5 model adds keyless entry and a start button, electric rear windows, automatic air-con, front foglamps, heated door mirrors, alloy wheels and tinted rear glass.

Suzuki SX4 options

There’s a very limited options list, mainly centred on a range of roof boxes, tow bars, mats and mudflaps. There’s no fully integrated Bluetooth system available – you’ll need to spend £250 on an aftermarket system from Parrot.
