The Suzuki SX4 looks like any one of half a dozen anodyne Japanese family hatchbacks. While it can do all the things the others can, it offers three unique selling points. You can have four wheel drive, it is higher than average and cheaper too.
This is one of the small set of cars (Kia Rio, Skoda Fabia) that fall between the small and family car sizes. It's added height makes it easy for the elderly to get into. It's optional four wheel drive makes it good for rural living and fun to drive too.
You can choose between the 1.6 petrol, or 1.9 diesel. The diesel only offers about 5MPG more than the petrol at 45MPG, but it is about the same price. So the trade off is just fuel costs versus refinement.
I can't think why you would buy this car in the non '4x4' form. There are better 2 wheel drive small family hatchbacks. In order that it's not exhausting on motorways and the like, I would take the 1.6 petrol engine. So the 1.6 4 Grip is the one to buy.
Nearly new cars should be under £10,000 and three year old cars should be under £7,000. They become £5,500 bargains with just 30,000 miles on the clock at 4 years old.
Four year old cars make a lot of sense in that they have lost £4,000 to depreciation and won't lose a huge amount each year after that. Also, mileages are never huge on these little cars.
Used Car Expert recommends that you try to buy after a big drop in depreciation and before the next one, so with the current Suzuki SX4 you would aim to buy a 5 year old and you can keep it for some time before needing to worry about a big drop in value.
Diesel Suzuki SX4 cars lose most over the first year (from new to 1 year old), so that is the best ‘nearly new’ buy in terms of car for money.
Petrol Suzuki SX4 cars lose least between years 1 and 3, so this is the best buy if you want to keep the car for a while.
Petrol Suzuki SX4 cars lose least between years 2 and 4, so that is the best buy on older cars.
