The Suzuki X-90, known as the Cabrio in Japan, was a small Sport Utility Vehicle sold from 1996 through 1998. It was loosely based on the Suzuki Sidekick, but had extremely rounded styling, two doors, seating for two and a T-section removable roof. It supplanted the Samurai for the United States. The X-90 was offered with four wheel drive or rear wheel drive and used a 1.6 L I4 16-valve engine, which pumped out 95 hp. The transmission choices offered were a 5-speed manual or an automatic. Air conditioning was also available, as was a dealer installed 6 disk CD changer. It had dual air bags and anti-lock brakes for the safety conscious drivers. The suspension used MacPherson struts and coil springs in front and coil springs with wishbone and trailing links in the rear of the vehicle.

To be expected, sales in Europe were poor. In total 1,500 units reached the UK alone and Suzuki had trouble marketing and even selling the models. Very appropriately, in 2004, BBC’s Top Gear magazine awarded the car the status of the worst car of all time. This is of course one award that no company is looking to claim. The X-90 began as a concept car and had initially received wide praise from the public. However, as previously stated, the production vehicle was a flop. Just 7,205 X-90s were imported into the US in total. More than half were sold in 1996, with sales dropping to 2,087 the next year and just 477 units in 1998. The Sidekick was thankfully replaced by the Vitara and the Grand Vitara for 1999. The Grand Vitara became Suzuki’s first model with a V6-cylinder engine and it was available 4-wheel ABS brakes. Suzuki will be very glad to put the X-90 far behind them and work toward bigger and better things.¬†You can obtain more information going¬ here and a car transport cost on our calculator¬†for your Suzuki X-90.<< Back to Vehicle Index
