Being new to this model, notice that all the AWD components keep turning even when the coupling clutch is not engaged. THis means the fuel burn is always the same....either in 2WD or AWD.
Thanx for the reply, LMP. My 2010 SX4 actually has 16" wheels, the tires currently on it being P205/60R16 91Hs, and the manual suggests the same, a P205/60R16 tire.
As for the coupling clutch, I wouldn't know anything about that. However, I seem to be getting just shy of 24 mpg at the moment with it set in 2WD (or approximately 38 kilometers per US gallon ... or roughly 9.5 kilometers per liter).
I also had the former Suzuki dealership where I bought it thoroughly inspect that feature, and they said it checked out fine.
On the other hand, the car doesn't even have 20K miles on it yet, and I haven't had it a full month, either. So, there's still much to observe and learn ... but I do
love driving it! I just hope I didn't make a mistake in the long run having chosen it. (crossed fingers!)
When I was doing all the research, it was getting a 5 star or almost 5 star rating across the board, e.g., such as at edmunds.com. Just the same, I simply cannot afford another costly mistake at this point in time.
Btw, I still don't know for sure the answer to my original question being, exactly what version of the SX4 do I have
? One guy told me I have a Crossover. Another said I have a Technology. ???
Oh yeah, apparently the roof rack came as standard equipment here, not an optional extra. I honestly don't know, though.
