2008 Suzuki SX4t Crossover Concept

Posted on by 5

Due to the demand of auto enthusiasts Suzuki took in consideration the building of a sport version of its SX4 crossover called SX4t. The vehicle uses the same 2.0 liter engine as the standard version but upfitted with Road Race’s proprietary turbo kit which helps it deliver 221 hp, an important upgrade comparing to the engine’s stock 143 hp.

The Japanese manufacturer used the Road Race’s GRIP springs and 17” alloy wheels in order to keep the car better on the road. Suzuki also added a CarbonTrix carbon fiber hood, and provided the SX4’s roof and A, B, C and D pillars with a complimentary dark metallic gray finish. At the interior the vehicle received a sport steering wheel from a Suzuki Swift and SWT’s drilled pedal set but also a Rockford Fosgate audio system which includes an enhanced amp, speakers and subwoofer.

There’s nothing conceptual about the Mitsubishi-built 16G GT3 turbocharger with its Tial 38mm wastegate, as it’s part of a $5,400 aftermarket kit that Road Race will sell directly to Suzuki SX4 owners starting in June 2008.

I think it’d look best all white, even with some white wheels thrown in for good measure. Plus it’d look more like their WRC car.

Is this the Road race that was turn into Sx4?

I don’t agree with that the car is amazing just the way it was..smiley

Suzuki should also face lift the sx4 to make it more aggressive for a crossover vehicle. even a bigger tire and a longer wheelbase will do.
