Suzuki SX4 Evolution and Evolution+ special editions launched in Italy
As a toddler, those wheeled machinery fascinated me even before I knew what they’re called as! So here I’m, petrolhead by birth, Mechanical engineer by qualification and automotive reporter by profession!
The Suzuki SX4 is very nearly at the end of its actual lifecycle but the Japanese small car expert has decided to give the crossover a minor spruce up in Italy by launching two special editions namely the Evolution and Evolution+.
Unlike in India, the SX4 is not a textbook style sedan in Italy. It is a mild crossover which is more capable than an ordinary hatchback off the road. The Evolution and Evolution+ special editions are based on the GL and GLX trims respectively.
The Evolution edition brings in more equipment to the package such as leather wrapped steering wheel, dual tone fabrics, a multimedia infotainment system with 5″ touchscreen, satellite navigation, MP3 music system with USB and Bluetooth connectivity.
As far as the exterior is concerned, the Suzuki SX4 Evolution gets a new Bison Brown color option, ORVM mounted turn indicators, new alloy wheels and silver roof rails.
The Evolution+ carries all the features included in the Evolution package along with added goodies like rear power windows, automatic climate control and cruise control (only available in 2.0-litre DDIS).
The two special editions are available with a 1.6-litre VVT petrol engine which is offered with a 4×4 system and a 2.0 litre DDIS diesel engine. The SX4 Evolution starts at €18,590 (around Rs. 13.35 lakhs) for the petrol model and at €19,590 (around Rs. 14.07 lakhs) for the 2WD diesel version.
