Before you buy a Suzuki SX4 in Uganda

Suzuki SX4
The Suzuki SX4 is a compact car and crossover developed jointly by Japanese automaker Suzuki and Italian automaker Fiat that sold between 2006 and 2014. It was available as a hatchback and sedan, with the former available in both front- and four-wheel drive. In 2013, a new generation launched, called Suzuki SX4 S-Cross—now exclusively a mini SUV, with a sedan version not offered. The first and second generation SX4s sold alongside one another until 2014. The SX4 sedan was replaced with the Suzuki Ciaz.

Before you buy a Suzuki SX4 in Uganda

The Suzuki SX4 is available as a five-door hatchback or saloon, and is basically the same car as the Fiat Sedici. There's just one petrol and diesel engine to choose from, but a four-wheel-drive version is available and every SX4 comes with plenty of equipment. The 2.0 diesel is only available with all-wheel drive, but it offers decent fuel economy and is cheap to tax, too. The boot is small on the hatchback version, but its tall and narrow shape means it's perfect for bulky items like pushchairs. It drives surprisingly well and it's comfortable, too.

Buying a foreign used Suzuki SX4 from a local Ugandan car bond

There are a number of car bonds in Uganda specifically Kampala from which you can buy your Suzuki SX4. However, you have to do good research in order to find a reputable car bond or dealer who will be able to provide you with the car that will meet your needs and above all genuinely imported into Uganda.

You need to look out for prices and discounts. Local car bonds may not charge the same prices for the same car. Prices of the Suzuki SX4 may be affected by mileage of the Suzuki SX4, condition of the car, model, and year of manufacture.

Importing a foreign Used Suzuki SX4 from Japan or other parts of the world

In case if you prefer to import your own Suzuki SX4 from say Japan or from Europe, things change a bit. First it would require you to find a trusted dealer or seller in that regard, determine your specific car features and requirements, expected budget you plan to spend on buying the car and well calculated taxes to be paid to the tax authorities in order to clear Suzuki SX4.

It is also very important to examine the car upon arrival to check and see if all the car components are included in the car as it was shown to you before buying it. You need to watch out for car spare tires, car jack, radio, navigation systems, and window power buttons among other things.

The taxes charged by the Uganda Revenue Authority include Import Duty, Value added (VAT), Withholding Tax, Environmental Levy, Infrastructure Levy, and Registration Fees basing on the CIF of the Suzuki SX4 from Japan.

On arrival to Kampala, Uganda, you will have to clear the taxes at The Uganda Revenue Authority (URA), apply and pay for a number plate and then the third party license. You will also notice that some of these charges or fees differ from other vehicles.

General Suzuki SX4 reviews for Uganda

The SX4 looks a bit like a shrunken off-roader, with big chunky bumpers, bulging wheel-arches, front and rear skid plates, rugged side protection mouldings and black roof rails. And the saloon version looks even more distinctive. The 2010 facelift brought improvement in the cabin, including new digital readouts and the plastics are robust, although they are hard and shiny which makes them feel very cheap.

There are four trim levels: SZ3, SZ4, SZ5 and X-EC. All versions come fitted with electric front windows, air-con, electrically adjustable door mirrors and steering-wheel mounted audio controls as standard. SZ4 trim adds 16-inch alloy wheels and keyless start, while range-topping models get a sat-nav, Bluetooth and USB connectivity.

Looking at comfort and practicability, the SX4 is only a four-seater but passenger space is good. It has a 270-litre boot, but this increases to 625 litres with the rear seats folded. The small boot, while not particularly deep, is very tall - this means you should easily be able to fit a buggy in there. The saloon version has a far bigger boot, at 515 litres, and can seat five adults.

The high-driving position is good, but the thick A-pillars cause big blind spots. There's plenty of useful storage around the cabin, including three cup holders, a good-sized glove box and space for big bottles in the door bins. There's also a useful hook in the boot to keep shopping bags in place.
