2008 Suzuki SX4 Offers Garmin GPS As Standard Feature

2008 Suzuki Sx4 Garmin Gps

Most people buying a car today wonder why they would want to pay $2,000 for a in-dash GPS.  Suzuki has solved that dilemma by partnering up with Garmin.


Instead of cramming an expensive navigation system into the car, the Japanese company opened up some space at the top of the dash to allow Garmin integrate a system with the vehicle.

The 2008 Suzuki SX4 is the first vehicle of any sort to be priced below $16,000 and have a standard navigation system.

Suzuki created a flip-up position at the top of the dash to hold the Garmin system. It clicks right in and charges while connected to the dash as opposed to the suction cup and wires down to the cigarette lighter outlet. The system connects through the stereo so it will automatically lower the radio's volume before directions.

The little compact car, which goes against the likes of the Mazda 3, Ford Focus, Toyota Corolla, and Honda Civic, may come across as more cheap and cheerful than bold and beautiful, but for the money it's a good deal.
