The SX4 suffix is history — and with it what the crossover looks like. Suzuki designed a pure SUV from S-Cross. The high hood, the black trim on the underside of the car, the angular wheel arches, the narrow slots for the LED headlights: the powerful design of the third generation fits perfectly into the public areas, the five-seater is a city SUV.
Although the developers of Suzuki will certainly raise their voices, because the Japanese, which is produced at the Hungarian Magyar-Suzuki plant, also comes as an all-wheel drive version. Thus it is certain even in (easy) terrain.
Square wheel arches
The black grille has a chrome S-marked buckle. New angled wheel arches enhance the striking impression. Suzuki mixed eight colors, including the colors Pearl Metallic Titan Taupe, Cosmic Black and Canyon Brown.
The interior seems to be flooded with light thanks to the one-meter panoramic roof. Sliding double glazed elements reveal a 56cm wide opening.
In the middle of the seats, the Japanese put a woven pattern made of faux leather. The instrument panel, in turn, is designed in three dimensions. The infotainment system is controlled on a 9-inch high-resolution touch screen. Also on board: Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
The backrests of the split rear seats can be tilted in a 60:40 ratio, and the trunk volume of 430 liters is opened.
The new Emergency Braking system recognizes other vehicles and pedestrians, and adaptive cruise control is equipped with a stop-and-go function on models equipped with the 6-speed automatic.
Available from January
Available in local showrooms from January, the new S-Cross will be equipped with a turbocharged 1.4-liter four-cylinder jet with 48-volt mild-hybrid technology. Output: 95 kW (129 hp). The Allgrip Select all-wheel drive system, in turn, allows four modes: automatic, sport, snow and lock.
In the second half of 2022, Suzuki is expanding its range to include a 115-horsepower full hybrid engine. Before that, the new drive system will be used in the Vitara. An off-road vehicle equipped in this way will likely be available in Austria from February.
