Class-leading active safety features in the SX4 Crossover include the electronic stability program with traction control and four-wheel disc brakes with an anti-lock braking system and electronic brake-force distribution. Together with the traction control system, stability control helps ensure vehicle stability when cornering, accelerating, driving on slippery roads or conducting emergency maneuvers.

Passive safety starts with a reinforced body offering front and rear crumple zones designed to help absorb impact energy. Eight airbags are standard, including driver and front passenger advanced frontal airbags, front seat-mounted side-impact airbags, and side-curtain airbags designed to provide additional protection for front-seat and outboard rear-seat passengers.

With the new-for-2011 rear seat-mounted side-impact airbags, the SX4 family of vehicles meets 2014 side impact standards. In addition, front three-point seatbelts include pretensioners and force limiters.

The SX4 Crossover is also equipped with ISOFIX-compliant child seat anchors and the LATCH system (Lower Anchor and Tethers for Children) in rear outboard seat positions. Daytime running lights and a tire pressure monitoring system are also standard. Together, all of this safety equipment makes the SX4 Crossover one of the best-equipped vehicles in its class with respect to safety.

2011 SX4 Crossover Trim Levels and Packages

The SX4 Crossover comes in three AWD trim levels: Base, Premium and Touring Value Package. The SX4 Crossover is one of the best-equipped vehicles in the segment, inviting comparison with small SUVs and CUVs costing far more. Standard features include power windows, locks and mirrors; remote keyless entry; air conditioning; AM/FM/CD/MP3 XM Satellite Radio-compatible audio system; tilt steering wheel; trip computer; fender flares; and roof rails.

The Premium Package adds the performance-tuned Continuously Variable automatic Transmission (CVT) plus cruise control, steering wheel audio controls and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.

The Touring Value Package adds advanced technology to the navigation system, including Bluetooth2 hands-free communication; real-time traffic; weather forecasts; movie times; lowest gas price finder; stock updates; headline news; local entertainment finder; and airline arrival/departure times. It also adds heated front seats, a rarity among compacts. Alloy wheels and fog lamps distinguish the package’s exterior.

In the SX4 Crossover the standard audio system is XM Satellite Radio-capable, and an accessory iPod3 interface is available. A connected iPod works seamlessly through the radio and the steering-wheel-integrated controls, with playlists and track information appearing on the audio display.
