Maruti Suzuki Sx4 vs Honda City

The most talked about situation everywhere in and outside Indians, is the comparison between the Honda City and the Suzuki SX4, everywhere in forums, reviews, televisions, letters.. Honda has boosted up their sales with the help of the City and now Suzuki's hope is to capture the C-segment with the SX4. Suzuki has made a serious jump from the old aging Baleno to the modern looking SX4, the launch of this car has crowded the showrooms for test drives and a first look, now after all the spread of news lets see how the Maruti-Suzuki holds up with the Honda City.

Engines, Power,Variants and Transmission:-


Maruti Suzuki SX4 - 4.5/5


For now Maruti has provided only a 1.6L all-aluminum engine that produces a 103bhp@5500. This is a 16V DOHC and has Torque of 145Nm. This is latest M-series from Suzuki. Three variants are given to the customers that is Vxi , Zxi and Zxi with Leather Option. The Cost of the variants are Rs.6.18 lakhs, Rs.6.89 lakhs and Rs.7.24 lakhs respectively, these prices are of ex-showroom New Delhi. In fact a lot of other engines have been spread as a rumor, now lets wait and see if these engines really come to India or not, and the engines are a 2-Litre engine that produces a 143bhp petrol that will compete against the upper class Corolla, Civic and the Lancer Cedia.
Suzuki borrows the Fiat's Diesel Engines and are likely to put up the 1.3 Multi-jet DDiS engine that will produce a 75 Bhp, the same as the one on the Swift and a 1.9 Multi-jet 105Bhp as seen in the Fiat Bravo. The SX4 only has a 5 speed Manual transmission. The SX4 engine is a bit more powerful than the remaining competitors, even more than the City. The Engine is the latest M-Series from Suzuki and is planned to put up in the Swift also. But we will have to wait and see when this car with a diesel options will be launched.

Honda City - 4.5/5


The displacement of the Honda City is 1497cc and produces a power of a reasonable 77Bhp @ 5000 rpm, has a torque of 125Nm and is a SOHC valve, just like the SX4, the City also has 4 cylinders. But the city offers more variants and with different prices- they are - the EXi, GXi, V-TEC and the CVT 6.77 Lakhs , 7.27Lakhs , 8 Lakhs, 7.87Lakhs respectively(ex-showroom Delhi). An automatic transmission is also available in the CVT model, that the Suzuki SX4 does not have an automatic transmission, this is a boon to the driver, and to get this boon it will be costlier. The City has no diesel options and is selling well without it. The City too has a 5-speed manual and an automatic transmission.
The SX4 has more powerful engine and has greater torque and the Honda City's engine is more refined and reliable. The SX4 comes with a reasonable price, whereas the city has a dragon in it that will burn your pocket, unless you go for the EXi, that is around 6.77 lakhs. And in the case of choosing, the City can help you. If you want a more powerful engine, go for the SX4.

Exteriors and Safety

Honda City:- 4/5

The City's exteriors were all made to make the interiors roomier and The City is still on the block of style and people still like it, and a little bit of styling had been done recently to keep it standing. The City still looks good with the sleek and dynamic styling of its features. The V-shaped Grille with Chrome finish is the main styling feature of the front, with the headlights and the roof mounted antenna, at the rear the new styling given, just to keep the city going in terms of styling. New Design 3D Multi-reflector Headlamps do help a little bit of styling, there is nothing much to say about the styling of the city as its talked about it in many magazines earlier and are found on the road easily since the early 2003.. so lets move on to safety.

The city's does not have ABS, airbags, even as an option. This is one of the main concerns for Indian customers, but the City got good remarks at the crash test. Honda City gives the tag "Safety for all" which is shown in Honda India Site. The "fuel tank, the car's body and even the specially designed seats, with City ZX, you are safe". They made the car in such a way that everybody in and around the city is safe and sound. Lets see what this means:
The City 's fuel tank is located in the middle of the vehicle, which will be safe because it is the farthest place from both, the front and rear impact. For protection against front impact, Honda has used arch-shaped front side frames that improves the absorption of collision impact and reduces danger. The City ZX's neck shock mitigation seats are designed to reduce neck injury in case of a collision by distributing the impact equally between the neck and the torso.

Safety For Pedestrians:- City ZX has been designed to reduce pedestrian injuries in the event of an accident. Various features of the exterior styling of the car are created specifically with pedestrian safety in mind.In case of an accident, the impact absorbing wiper pivots soften the force of the collision.The bonnet too, is impact absorbing. There is an empty space between the bonnet and the engine, which tries to ensure that no one is very seriously injured. The collapsible bonnet hinge is easily deformed in the event of a collision to help reduce injury to pedestrians. The impact absorbing fender is structured to reduce the force of impact.In this way, the Honda City ZX not only looks out for people inside the car, but it protects those on the outside as well. With Honda, safety is a concept, a belief, a passion and an obsession.
So, eventually the City is a well built safety car, which explains the shape of the car a bit. Overall the Honda City's safety is good, but if the airbags and ABS are available, this car would have been a great safe car.

Maruti Suzuki SX4 - 4.5/5


The exteriors of the SX4 had been crafted to make the interiors more spacious. Though this car is usually a hatch in other countries and is developed to a sedan, the SX4 is different, different from the competitors, its like a crossover, it has the presence of feel of a mini SUV type of look. This is reason why it stays away from the other saloon of this segment, its looks a bit of a class higher, it has the likes to take up with the Optra 1.6 and even the Toyota Corolla. The muscular styling of this car reflects the power under this bad boy and the cockpit like interiors inside, this car is also the tallest, widest and the longest of the competition and makes it the complete young powerful man machine.This car is made from the influence of the so called "Latest European design" . The SX4 is made to provide the best of luxury to their customers. The SX4 has an impressive ground clearance of 190mm, whereas the city has only 160mm. Tubeless tyres, alloy wheels,stop lamp, rear fog lamp, front fog lamps are the other exterior features.

Now coming to safety dual airbags are available for this car and also 3-point ELR front seat belt pre tensioner & force limiter and 3-point rear seats belts and 2 point lap belt for better catch of the passenger in the seat. Anti-Lock Braking System with Electronic Brake-Force Distribution are available to get excellent control of the car, and also has an Intelligent Computerized Anti Theft System (iCAT System) , all these are available in the Zxi versions.
Side impact protection beam and Front door-lock canceler are also available.The Styling is different for different people, so both the cars have good styling of their own characteristics, though the fit and finish of the City is better. The city is quiet old in terms of people who need sporty, muscular and the young look, in this terms the Maruti-Suzuki SX4 scores well..For the people who need a practical, sophisticated and a business like car, the city is the one for that, its not everyday that a person like anil ambani drives a murcielago to his meetings, he would prefer to sit at the back of a rolls-royce with a newspaper. The SX4 definitely looks muscular and will be liked by many people, and also has many features than the city, and in safety, the SX4 scores again, because the city has no airbags and ABS, that the only problem in safety with the City. The SX4 scores because it looks modern and young and can go further and compete against the upcoming car's like the Fiat Linea and Toyota Vios.

Interiors and Comfort

Honda City - 4.5/5

The interiors of the City boasts of luxurious and spacious interiors, Honda had used high quality, upmarket products for the City interiors. The City has Dual Tone Beige Interiors, Chrome Inner Door Handles, High Grade Stereo with CD/MP3 Player, Front Storage Space with Cup Holder, Nice and clean Instrument Cluster and has very good legroom, powerful air conditioners, better than the SX4 and a big boot of 500liters. All of you know the City's interiors and theres nothing much to explain.
The City has a decent amount of comfort features - the city has rear armrest, twin glove box and a center console tray with fordable glass holders. tilt adjustable steering wheel, power door locks and power windows with illuminated switches. The City's interiors are really good and is made from top quality products, but the SX4's interiors are not that far behind lets see it.

Maruti Suzuki SX4 - 4.6/5


The SX4 has interiors is like a mini cockpit, they are so cleanly fitted as they roll down toward the end, a CD-player that goes with the dash look, the steering is embedded with controls and they are great to have, which the city does not have, the SX4 has a climate control and a display to check the interior-outside temperature. Both the SX4 and the City has electronic adjustable side view mirrors and rear defogger and some aluminium pieces are thrown near the console. There is also an illuminated key ring. The SX4 is the biggest and most spacious in the class and also has extra head, elbow and legroom.The SX4 has a height adjustable driving seat for better commanding view of the road, something that the Honda City does not have. The boot is big and roomy of 505 liters. There is a long list of equipments that the SX4 has, and you will be pleased with it.
The fit and finish of the City is better though.
So, eventually there is very close competition of interiors between these two in interiors. The City's upmarket interiors v/s the SX4's young and modern cockpit like interiors. The SX4 is more spacious and comfortable and with a long list of features and equipments, the SX4 wins by close points. I would give it a 4.6, its that close though the fit and finish of the City is better. We gave the extra point because of the extra features available in the SX4.

Performance and Handling

Honda City:- 4/5


The Honda city is zippy and is handled a little better than the SX4. The Engine is not powerful and the car is also very quiet and smooth and the manual gearbox pleasure to use. The Honda City with a 77Bhp can do quiet well in the Highway and with that power this car is pretty well in city driving. With the McPherson Strut with Stabilizer and H- Type Torsion Beam Suspension at the rear, the car goes well in handling. But never test another car in overtaking in the highways in high speeds with the City, its not that good enough. The City name itself shows what the car is capable of - it is really a good city driving comfortable car. The Honda City returns a mileage of 10.85kmpl in city and 16kmpl in highway.
So overall the City is a good to drive car especially in the City conditions and returns good mileage. The Servo Assisted Hydraulic braking is good , but with ABS it would have been better.. The City was the best buy in the class at a bigger price. The Honda City sells because of the refined engine,upmarket interiors, reliability of Honda and the Brand Image. Now lets see what the SX4 can do.

Maruti-Suzuki SX4 - 4.5/5


The Suzuki SX4 is also a pleasure to drive, the extra power can be used for highways and with this power you can rip off your opponent. The gearbox is like similar to the Swift and has a top speed of 175 kmph. The ride quality of the Suzuki SX4 is lovable with Stabilizer Independent suspension with gas-filled McPherson strut & anti-roll bar in the front and Semi independent torsion beam with gas filled shock absorbers and absorbs the potholes very nicely and the area of clearance is really good and can take over the bumps quiet well, with Stabilizer Independent suspension with gas-filled McPherson strut & anti-roll bar in the front and Semi independent torsion beam at the rear with gas filled shock absorbers, makes it more comfortable.
The SX4 is fast and fun to drive, and even in the highways.The SX4 also returns mileage similar to the City of 10.9. The car being tall, really rare chances of body roll, because the car has a firm grip on the road. Alloy wheels also help too.

Winner:-

The fight was very very close indeed, we would intend to put both the cars first, but in a fight there is supposed to be a winner, so according to the review, overall - the SX4 wins. The SX4 is more powerful, looks better than the City and looks really modern, it is very much equipped than the city, has ABS, and Dual Airbags and is the longest, tallest, widest in the segment and has an enormous ground clearance with a big boot and great front and rear legroom, iCAT system and lots and lots more..
No other car in this segment has offered so many features, plus with a value for money tag too which is way much cheaper than the city.. So eventually the Maruti-Suzuki SX4 wins with close discount.

The exterior and the ride might be better in SX4 but the interior is a big let down in terms of the finish and material used. the door trims were pathetic and even the Wagon R has better quality. I was waiting desperately for the sx4 but now i have to look at city or verna(even if they don't have abs and airbags).

PALANICHAMY said...

Honda Guys are no Pushovers, It is very good that they have found a worthy competition in Maruti, Thanks to SX4, we are gonna get a brand new, swashbuckling Honda City with all safety features like Airbags, ABS and other extras like remote key lock, lighted keyinsert, Better Ground Clearance,etc at a very MINIMAL EXTRA COST. Beware SX4, the ALL-NEW Honda CITY should be just round the corner, Brace yourself for the shattering impact on you !!!!

Roshan said...

Ya.. True, but the new city comes only in 2009 and its a long way from here and it has go the face of a Honda CR-V, but looks awesome.. hope to see the complete pictures on this blog..

Sumeet said...

how about a comparison between Maruti SX4 and Renault Logan 1.6 top end model...
as both boasts about WIDE body ...

Can someone throw light as logan is cheaper to buy than SX4 ..though my Heart says SX4 but mind says LOGAN .... just coz of PRICE difference of nearly 1.75 lacs.. mumbai

shivraj said...

The Logan is also a wise choice. But lacks in refinement and safety and all kind of those stuff. And 1.75 lakhs is not small.. you can buy another car for that kind of money. The Logan has the style to go to the people.. But the low-cost tag does back off some people..
The Logan is definitely a wise choice.. but will your heart agree with it when you see a man machine SX4 in front of you?

CNN said...

i have just bought an sx4 and lemme tell you guys that its one hell of a MEAN MACHINE,its faster more powerful and better lookin than any car around and far far cheaper than the Honda City (what SX4 gives you at 7.47 lakhs Honda gives you at 8.60 lakhs (ask yourself this question who wud yu go with).Besided Maruti has come with the SX4 and slapped all car makers on thier face!! with a cheaper and better car than anybody can offer.I love the pick up/power of the sx4 and the way people stare at it even the ones driving the honda city lol ..its great fun!!!

Anonymous said...

There are fools out there who are ready to sacrifice safety provided by SX4 over interior quality and finish (door trims???) provided by Honda City. Are you guys nuts?

Anonymous said...

If you are really a fun lover then SX4 comes noway near to honda city vtec which makes 0-100 in amazing 10 seconds. VTEC's engine is far far superior then SX4. Like Autocar righly said "Honda's engine is light years ahead then Sx4"

k.sharma11 said...

hey guys if you all want a car just like you then check out this new sx4 by maruti it is simply amazing.The car is huge with masculine looks safety takes the first place in sx4 and the price are the best competitive price that any company can offer to all of us.I am quite impressed with this car and am looking forward to this car.

Anonymous said...

I bought a SX4 ZXi last week. Driven about 600 kms over the week (highways and climb to ooty). It makes a perfect "balanced" package. No need to get into 0-100 shoot outs or digging into the weavings on interiors, or the stuff which means little in real life usage of car. SX4 is a great, practical, safe, fun to drive and value for money car. Damn the overpriced badges... you will see how they tumble themselves and their prices in the days to come. Kudos for Maruti.

hey just wanna say that the Honda City manufactured in India is rubbish the car has nothing compared to wat the singapore & malaysian models have to offer the re-conditioned ones v get from singapore has so may options than the brand new Honda City v get in the Honda showroom which is from India. Options would b Leather Seats, Alloy Wheels, ABS, Airbags etc and these are the 2004 Models. Other than for the swift the rest from Maruti sucks.

I dont know y they even started a plant in India if they are to manufacture these rubbish vehicles. i lov Honda but they better research first where they are to hav a manufacturing plant and not for the sake of having 1 just because the labour cost is low

Cheers

hi just wanna say that Honda city manufactured in india is rubbish coz the 2004 re-conditioned models which v get from singapore is waaaaaaaayyyyy bet than the shit City in India. Tha indian version doesnt hav ABS or Airbags that sucks coz ours do (Singapore version) no leather seats, no alloys is not worth but i guess wen u pay that amount u really cant ask much. are car dealers guarantee not to buy indian vehicles as they have poor rubber bearing :( india being the biggest rubber suppliers to the world has very poor quality specialy in there vehicles. Sorry but its the truth.

as for the suzuki except for the Swift which i adore alot the rest is rubbish again apart from the vitara and again v c the difference in the swift versions.

I must admit honda have the better edge in india,honestly speaking car market in india has always been a great letdown as compared to foreign market.Maruti suzuki in d form of SX4 offering such safety features has given a great boost to the indian market for value for money.Thumbs up for Maruti!

What about automatic transmission, Hybrid models in India, in the US it is becomming common now, and what is the offering for those who worry about the future of the world ? :)

k.sharma11 said...

hey friends
with beautiful colours,safety features such airbags etc,190mm of ground clearance,"m" series engine with 102bhp power has already hit the indian roads.If you all enjoy driving then you must go for the car.

Anonymous said...

There was a Maruti service camp at my office a few days ago, and I happened to have a closer look on SX4. I sat at the back and to my surprise, my head got banged on the roof. The big it looks from outside, the minimal roof height is there at the back. To tell you all, I am just 5ft 9inch. They have not learned from Swift which is bigger from outside and has lesser space inside. I dropped the idea of buying the SX4, I would rather go with Verna or City.

k.sharma11 said...

JUST GO FOR IT.....

now all you 5`10 or above you dont have to worry as maruti has solved this problem and has made sx4 whch has enough of leg space and head space with 190mm of ground clearance."M"series engine with 102bhp power has been provided in the car which gives your ride equal to that of a SUV.

Anonymous said...

I am keen to know the mileage for SX4 both in city and on highway. Also how does the mileage compare with Honda City. For me the running cost is more important than the initial buying cost. Also any idea on the after sales cost of maintenance for both.

mark said...

Price: 7.60lakhs (ZXi - Leather. Ex-Showroom, Mumbai)
0-100kmph: 11.9sec
Top Speed: 175kmph (Estimated)
Mileage: 10kmpl (City); 15kmpl (Highway)

Anonymous said...

only those who own sx4 will know about it.the city has great interiors but that does not mean sx4 interiors are bad .those who know about maruti will know their service which is much more better compared to hondaindia the sx4 has an suv platform and so can go to places where an suv can go can the city do that?

Its so important to have a top-quality shock absorber for your SUVs because it not only adds comfort to your vehicle but also protection.

ppl....u shud know sumthin......in any muvee always the villain is muscular and always oppresses the hero....the hero, who is not muscular is always reliable,comfortable etc......so i mean to say city is damn better .....its class is light years away from maruti's....

sx4 love it love it and love it. nothing better than sx4. from 0 to 100 only 7.9 sec. honda can not do that. interior is not bad and lot of better features than honda. sx4 its my love. i just love it

The Zxi gave me almost everything I wanted in a car - except the mud flaps! Even if you drive around carefully in the muck with the windows down, be sure, it's all over you and your Car. Otherwise I enjoy it!

Hello.
Id like to know if it is possible to remove the exixting audio system and upgrade to a more sophisticated audio system. If so what is the procedure

i think sx4 is far better then honda city, because of the features u r getting in sx4 worth rs 7.4 lac u can't get these features in honda city of rs 8.4 lac, and looks are also very great of sx4 we can't say its bad, plus maruti also is known for its quality an service,

Guys... after reading all the views mentioned above I can purely say that U all are Honda & Suzuki Lovers... Well not to Offend the Honda guys... Let me ask you few questions - Why do we need a car..?
We want it to be comfortable... Zazzy... Sporty... Fuel efficient... low maintenance & many other such factors... Well I personally own a Honda City & SX4 both... to be really fair... my vote goes for SX4... for a simple reason it's wide tall looks... much much much spacious than the city... & the sporty look which no other car manufacturer can think of as of now... My visit to Goa in SX4 was a dream ride... SX4 shelled out an Average of blistering 15.5 with AC on throughout at an avg speed of 130 km/h with 5 people inside the car... would u expect anything else from your car?
I almost harassed all the Skoda's on the highway... they couldn't beat my car...
I have touched mind boggling 193 km/h top speed on my SX4 which I guess can really impress you... No jokes guys... SX4 is meant to

Dr Ak Singh said...

The model of SX4 is exellent and very much comparable to Honda City Howevere the fuel efficiency is very low . Maruty claims 15 km/L in its mannual , but is is only 10-11 on the high way.The pick up is also not up to the mark as they claims.

i own a 9 months old sx4 (zxi). I have driven only less than 4000 km. average milage is around 13+ (AC Always). Recently I drove around 400 km continously with 30 ltrs of Indane Xtrapremuim. Max. speed was 130 kmph and many times i was driving in lower gears (Those who drive through Kerala know the road conditions). Mileage of 15 ltrs may not be impossible on expressways.

maruti said...

Overall Maruti Sx4 is the perfect sedan and it offer enormous value fro your money. Compared to sx4, Honda city is much expensive and the interiors are of bad quality.I drive sx4 and loves it.

compared with honda city ,sx4 is excellent in its performance.Indeed the great Car and I feel delighted to be the owner of such a prestigious and loaded Car. Its a real giant on road.

The best selling points of SX4 is: Road presence, Climate control, ABS, Air bags, Audio controller in steering wheel, 16 Inch Alloy and slightly better performance. All these goodies sounds very good and exciting. However, when you go inside the cabin, the interior feels very rich.compared with city,sx4 is too good in its performance

The SX4 is the dark horse when compared to Honda City due to its down market predegree, but it is sure to beat Honda some day

Test drove the SX4 and was impressed with the performance of the car on highway & rough roads. Great features...great pricing. The downside being the interior space and plastic used. The music system provided could have been better. Overall a value for money car like all Maruti cars..!!

Anonymous said...

new maruti suzuki sx4 is absolutely a perfect car with almost all the best features available it is truly a man`s car.a lot of discussions relating to mileage is goin on but 12 to 13 on road and around 15 on highways is not at all bad.the price quoted to be in between 6 to 7 lakhs makes it a very reasonable car and totally a car which every man aspires.i think it is totally a value for money.

Shah Rizwan said...

Unfortunately, Indians are always ready to pay even for shit if it comes from Western countries or tagged with a Western Brand. If I compare Maruti SX4 with Honda city, then Maruti SX4 ZXI is way ahead from Honda City i-vtec in terms of features, robustenss, performance, service centers, service charges, and parts. I agree, in terms of looks (interior and exterior) Honda might be ahead a little but overall SX4 is way Ahead and VFM. We should appreciate Maruti that it allows indians to use highend features in lowest prices.

Sx4 is a value sedan. It has got more power, more mileage and more interiors, even the boot space is more. Sx4 has got more features for lesser money. Go for it friend, for Maruti will take care of the service and maintenance.. trust the brand. SX4 rocks!!!

Anonymous said...

How much did Maruti pay you to write this review? You must be absolutely NUTS to compare a SX4 to a Honda City Exi or a Gxi version. Tried comparing SX4 with City ZX Vtec? Again, its silly to argue with fools, because people may not notice the difference!

Sx4 is Great tall boy looks so getting in and out not difficult for tall uns. Its Good on pocket. Its about a lakh and a half cheaper than competitor cars, but no compromise in features. Great improved interiors. Good and responsive(revving) engine. Good service network. Great car SX4, for any time any day and on any weather condition!!!

Anonymous said...

Maruti Sx4 is a muscular sedan. I bought the blue color with the facelift. It has got 10 spoke alloy wheels and gives the macho feel. Maruti is giving even the automatic variant at a price where only the Honda city's manual transmission starts. This clearly shows how Maruti cars are more competitve and offers more features to the customers.

Anonymous said...

I test drove Verna, sx4 and city. I felt Sx4 is good to handle and the finish and built is ever lasting. i am going to book Sx4, it is a true value for money from Maruti stable and hence resale will also be good!

scrocher said...

I am a proud owner of Sx4. Everybody in my locality is envying my Sx4. The car has macho looks, even majestic than the skoda superb. Sx4 is having high ground clearance, hence no problem of water entering car in monsoon seasons. Also, Sx4 engine gives great pickup and power delivery. Sx4 braking is too good. Sx4 is all rounder sedan, and best car of Maruti Suzuki!

Anonymous said...

lets compare apple to apple; sedan vs sedan

comfort car: city is the best

tough; powerful car: fiat linea is the best; lets see what VW vento has to offer.

ground clearance: sx4 is the best; Fiat Adventure has stopped.

built like tank car: Fiat linea and VW Vento

fuel efficient car: honda is the best

most durable and longest lasting : Fiat linea and VW Vento; the european cars are miles ahead on this...even a 10 yr old OPEL Astra (German origin) looks awesome!

Interiors: city is the best

Remember: if u sacrifice on body strength; toughness then you easily get get better FE! this is what maruti does...remember the 'tin ka dabba' M800; even an auto(3 wheeler) could romp it!

SX4 has almost everything..all in all its a goood good car..!!But as far as the looks and reliability is concerned Honda rocks..!!
& Honda is also cheap in terms of Avg & mantnce..
but still there very little to differentiate bet the two cars !!
