Suzuki SX4 1.6 GLX FD

Suzuki is trying to shake up the butch-supermini market by undercutting rivals with its new SX4 model.

The entry-level 1.6-litre GL version of the new car will cost £9995 on the road. That compares well with the £11,845 Ford Fusion 1.6-litre Zetec and the £12,645 Volkswagen Polo Dune 1.4 16v.

The Suzuki isn't short of equipment, either – it comes with air-conditioning, a radio/CD player, electric front windows and electric door mirrors as standard.

The GLX version of the SX4 will cost £1000 more than the base model. It adds electric rear windows, heated door mirrors, keyless start technology and climate control. Both versions are now on sale.

Four-wheel-drive SX4s and a 1.9-litre diesel model will be introduced later this year.
