Maruti Suzuki has declared to come up with a facelifted version of the SX4 on 13th October.

The car company has temporarily halted the production of the SX4 and now is all geared up to relaunch the sedan with a BS-IV compliant engine. The new Maruti Suzuki SX4 will be tweaked on the exteriors and interiors. Moreover, the new SX4 will now have automatic transmission gearbox as an optional feature.

Maruti Suzuki's two-year C-segment sedan, the SX4, was launched with a tagline 'Men are back'. But this time the revamped version will carry talk of 'Superman'.

According to industry estimates, the sales of SX4 have dwindled due to the runaway success of the all-new Honda City and the Fiat Linea, which are both postioned in the same segment. The SX4, which had a volume of about 1,800 to upto 2,000 units (average), has dropped to less than 1,000 units per month, and now to about 700-800 odd units.
