It’s always perplexing to see two generations of the same model are being sold side-by-side in Chinese market but it’s just how the way it is. The front of the car gets the major changes which include new front bumper with re-profiled headlights, newly designed grille, air dam and fog lights.

As a result of that, the new front fascia looks more aggressive and aerodynamic to enhance performance. The new alloy wheels, roof rails and rear bumper further enhances the crossover’s appeal. But on the inside it all stays the same. The SX4 is a brisk seller in China and with these changes it would become even more popular.

    I live in the USA and have been keen on the SX4 since Day One. Sure wish Suzuki Automobiles had not decided to withdraw from the North American marketplace 🙁 Sadly now that it’s gone never to return to our shores, the stylists have given it an handsome and timely facelift. T’is a fantastic, well-built little car and the best alternative AWD (4×4) vehicle to come down the pike since Subaru’s classic 2002-2007 Impreza Sport Wagon.
