13th December 2006

To further strengthen its market position, Suzuki Saudia, the sole distributor for the Japanese automaker Suzuki in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is preparing to announce the launch of the new Suzuki SX4, a crossover over revolution vehicle designed to appeal to small families, young, active, image-conscious motorist in the Kingdom.

With car-ownership levels at a record high, it is within many people's means to spend their disposable income on a vehicle that is designed for unsurpassed performance in terrain comparable to the vastness of Saudi Arabia. It is no longer considered a luxury, but rather a necessity to own a vehicle that allows for advanced navigation if circumstances require.

“We are pleased to distribute the new Suzuki SX4, as the vehicle has excellent features, top-of-the-range technology and is reasonably priced. This vehicle will positively appeal to the younger generation of vehicle buyers, as it is a sporty, compact and action-ready vehicle with a 'look-at-me' attitude that this demographic desires. The SX4 is a car that crosses seasons and occasions to open new lifestyle possibilities. It also satisfies the needs of small families,” said Ahmed Shamaile, Sales Manager, Suzuki Saudia.

Crossing sporty compact features with exceptional engine specifics, the SX4 has a functional yet beautiful and commanding design. The shape of the vehicle is completely life style and sports-oriented, with low and wide proportions, a rising waistline, bold over-fenders and wide treads to express stability and traction. With a choice of two versions, the Outdoor Line offers large 16-inch wheels, wheel arch mouldings, under spoilers and side protection mouldings, while the Urban Line focuses on stylish elements to produce a more passenger-car feel.

Yet, Suzuki is well-aware that looks aren't everything and the SX4 comes equipped with enough built-in technologies and engine specifics to make even the most demanding motor-enthusiast impressed. With a powerful 2.0L petrol engine and a choice of transmissions, the SX4 has enough options to cater to a wide market of vehicle buyers.

Perfect for long-distance and safe driving, the SX4 is a suitable companion during long drives across the Kingdom and beyond. Designed for precise handling, the SX4 encompasses rigid suspension mounts, 16-inch tyres, front-strut precision tuning and rear-torsion beam suspension, all to ensure a comfortable drive. A broad array of inbuilt safety measures inspires confidence in the driver, including anti-lock braking system (ABS), an electronic brake-force distribution (EBD) system, an electronic stability program (ESP), a rigid safety body structure and a dual airbag protection system.

“When the SX4 becomes available in January, it will prove to be an immensely popular alternative to other vehicles on the market because of its exceptional design, features and price. From the soothing curves and sporty metallic accents of the interior, to the streamlined and sculpted chassis, the SX4 models a perfect balance of bold and refined elements,” Shamaile concluded.
