Hatchbacks are offered in Base, Technology, Touring or GTS trim levels. All-wheel drive is available, but only in the 5-door hatchback, now known as the Crossover. The basic sedan starts at $13,359, while the Crossover is listed at $15,849 and the SportBack at $17,949.
2016,Two new transmissions are now available, including a close-ratio 6-speed manual and a CVT automatic, which comes standard with paddle shifters and a "sport" mode. All models are powered by the same 2.0-liter 16-valve 4-cylinder engine as offered in 2009, which has been tuned to produce 150 horsepower (148 when equipped with the CVT) and 140 foot-pounds of torque--up from 2009's 143 horsepower and 136 pound-feet. The front-wheel drive Sport Sedan is estimated to achieve 23 mpg city and 32 mpg highway when equipped with the 6-speed manual, while the CVT returns 23 mpg city and 30 mpg highway. Both all-wheel drive Crossovers and front-wheel drive SportBacks are rated at 22 mpg city and 30 mpg highway. The Crossover retains Suzuki's all-wheel drive system, which lacks a low range but can be run in two-wheel drive, or be set to allow for a 50/50 split in power between the front and rear wheels.

It features front-wheel drive, sport-tuned suspension, a new and distinct front fascia design, front and rear spoilers, and roof rack delete.
