As well as being compared against other cars, the 2011 Suzuki SX4 Sport SE is also often compared to sports cars, luxury cars, mid-size SUVs and exotic cars. The 2011 Suzuki SX4 Sport SE's top rivals come from Hyundai (such as the Genesis Coupe 2.0T and the Elantra GLS) and Audi (such as the A3 Premium and the A4 Premium)

compared to car competitors

Generally, some of the advantages of the SX4 Sport SE compared to other car competitors include: it has continuously-variable transmission (continuously variable vs traditional), has slightly more airbags (6 vs 5), has better brakes (disc vs drum), has standard paddle shifters (standard vs not available) and has standard power outlets (standard vs not available).

However, on average it gets slightly less from a tank of gas on the highway (422 miles vs 478 miles), has much fewer gears (continuously variable vs 6), has rougher suspension (semi-independent vs independent), only has a naturally-aspirated engine (none vs turbocharger) and lacks the safety benefits of electronic stability control.
