Lo and behold:

The one on the right is the facelifted model. Basically, they put the Fiat's moldings around the car and changed the grille a bit.

Personally, I prefer the looks of the replaced model (the one in the middle).

We will NEVER see the leather and HID headlights in the US SX4. Where are the pics for the refreshed Grand Vitara?

It's like they've given up.

Since Fiat cancelled the Sedici for 2013 Suzuki has to use all the spare body parts on the 2013 SX4.

That's the ugliest facelift I've ever seen. It should be called a facedown as it looks like it's drooping to the floor.

I don't but I see the point. Esp that when I was at the car wash today I found two chips on the driver's door just under the plastic door molding :(

looks good except for the rims. I wouldn't mind to see this refresh in the US.

Looks good! Suzuki USA would never bring it to the US because the management here stinks and they are to spineless to demand the Indonesian model to come here.

HID projector headlamps... looks like LHD. Maybe there's another market to source it from?

Terrible grill on the chinese one. And more plastic!! No thanks! The RC1 looks cool and I like the rims.

the indonesian projectors must be RHD, look at the reversed wipers.

I think in china they have LHD projectors.

You're right. I thought my wipers rest the same way :o
China is a country with right-hand traffic, so yeah - that is the place to get the lamps from :)
