Maruti Suzuki to showcase SX4 hatchback at Auto Expo 2010

Maruti Suzuki plans to showcase a hatchback version of its popular SX4 at Auto Expo 2010. The SX4 hatchback, an international bestseller, is one of the most popular hatchbacks in European markets. In Europe the SX4 hatchback is

available in multiple engine options that include a 2.0 litre, a 1.6 litre and 1.5 litre petrol engines.

The powerful J20B engine on the SX4 hatchback on display raises the maximum torque to 190Nm/4,000rpm while enhancing environmental compatibility by cutting CO2 emissions. Lower piston friction in the engine contributes to enhanced fuel efficiency, output, and torque. A Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) gives greater driving excitement.

 The SX4 hatchback with CVT enables lighter gearshifts and improved driving experience. Careful harmonizing of the transmission and engine ensures fullest experience without any loss of power

 An ideal combination of style, space, high driving position, hatchback practicality, and fuel economy has made the SX4 hatchback a winner.  Its strong, eye-catching exterior styling projects the SX4 hatchback as an urban warrior with a sense of fun.

 Features like the two-wheel drive (2WD) and an optional intelligent All-Wheel Drive (i-AWD) system, help the SX4 hatchback cater to every lifestyle. The i-AWD system allows the driver to switch from 2WD mode to 4WD modes at the press of a switch. That enhances the road grip without sacrificing on fuel consumption. These attributes make SX4 hatchback as one of the most affordable and adorable four-wheel-drive cars on the road.

 The SX4 hatchback displayed at the show has all-new, five-spoke, 16-inch aluminium-alloy wheels with 205/60R16 tyres, which make driving more fun.
