2010 Suzuki SX4 Aero and Crossover models launched in spectacular magic show and Vegas style production numbers

Satoshi Uchida, president of Suzuki Philippines, the country’s only integrated motoring company, disappeared onstage and magically reappeared in the 2010 Suzuki SX4 Aero, at the recent product launch held last April 28, 2010, at Le Pavillion, Pasay City. This was the highlight of a magic show topbilled by master magician Mr. Cris Castro. Shortly after, the long-awaited SX4 Crossover model was revealed after a rousing Las Vegas style production number by the Club Mwah performers.
 

The upgraded Suzuki SX4 Aero... 

Unveiled with accompanying magic and mystery, the new Suzuki SX4 Aero is the sedan version which has been completely restyled with a sportier profile and more aggressive front grille. A rear spoiler with third brake light, 17” alloy wheels and rear disc brakes make this sedan a looker.

Sharing the same basic specifications as the Suzuki SX4 Crossover, the SX4 Aero now boasts of a more powerful M16A engine, a 1600cc 16-valve DOHC engine with variable-valve timing (VVT). Mated to a 4-speed gate-type automatic transmission, it is able to deliver maximum output of 110hp at 5,600rpm and maximum torque of 150Nm at 3,800rpm.

Also a Japan-made import, the Suzuki SX4 Aero is offered in snow white pearl, star silver metallic and super black pearl, and retails for P 890,000.

Meanwhile, the Suzuki SX4 Crossover is expected to be an instant hit among Filipino car enthusiasts, carving out a niche as a compact crossover vehicle. Designed by automotive hall of fame designer Giorgetto Giugiaro’s Italdesign studio, the units sold in the Philippines are imported as completely built-up units (CBU) from Japan, ensuring its build quality.

 
... and the all-new Suzuki SX4 Crossover

It is equipped with new features such as honeycomb type front grille, fender arch, roof rails, all wheel disc brakes and 16” alloy wheels. More power and better fuel efficiency are the hallmarks of its new M16A engine, a 1600cc 16-valve DOHC engine with variable-valve timing (VVT).

Likewise, occupant safety is assured by a high rigidity body that utilizes Suzuki’s proprietary TECT (Total Effective Control Technology) as well as dual air bags, anti-lock brakes (ABS) and keyless entry.
