MILTON KEYNES, UNITED KINGDOM – May 20, 2013: With low fuel consumption becoming even more important these days, Suzuki GB is pleased to announce that the SX4 range was voted the Best Real MPG Performer at the awards ceremony held in London last night.

The new award arose from the ‘Real MPG’ section of the honestjohn website which was launched following complaints from readers that their cars could not match official EC Combined fuel economy figures. Readers can log the true fuel economy that their vehicles are achieving into a database of more than 40,000 Real MPGsubmissions which covers almost 2,500 model and engine configurations of cars since 2006.

The SX4 range was voted by owners as the car that came closest to achieving the EC combined figure in everyday driving, recording an average score of 97.1 per cent. The combined fuel consumption for the 1.6 petrol 2WD is 45.6 mpg and the 2.0 DDiS 4WD model is 53.3mpg.

Dan Harrison, editor of comments: “Fuel consumption has become a very contentious issue and the feedback we get from owners via Real MPG is incredibly valuable. Since launching in 2011 we’ve had submissions covering pretty much every make of car so for owners to report that the Suzuki SX4 range comes so close to matching its claimed fuel economy is a real achievement.”

The SX4 range is available with a 1.6 petrol engine with either two or four wheel drive or with the 2.0 DDiS engine as four wheel drive. Suzuki’s popular VAT free offers now also include the SX4 range until the end of June with the 1.6 SZ3 two wheel drive model priced at 10,495, representing a customer saving of 2,100.
