Geneva was a quiet show for Suzuki, as the most impactful vehicle on display, the SX4 sedan, is something we’ve all seen already. Still, we have to say that as hatchbacks-turned-notchbacks go, we like the way the 4-door looks with its new protruding booty. The SX4 sedan gets the same powerplant as its hatchback brother, but will be offered in a front-wheel-drive config as well. Generally, sedan versions of hatchbacks don’t fare so well in the looks department (see Nissan Versa), but between this new Suzuki and the recently-introduced Astra four-door, there’s reason to be optimistic that the days of the ugly small sedan are waning. We’ll wait and see.
Among the vehicles joining the SX4-door on the stand was the WRC Concept version of the hatch, a Swift Group N rally car, and the Lambo-doored Swift Sport seen above.
