Suzuki has been working on a new-generation S-Cross for global markets for some time now. A couple of days ago, the company even dropped a teaser previewing the headlamp of the new-gen S-Cross. The model is slated for a world premiere on November 25, but a new spy photo that has surfaced online has completely revealed the design of the new-gen SUV.
- New-gen Suzuki S-Cross looks more SUV-ish than its predecessor
- Expected to be powered by 1.4-litre Boosterjet petrol with mild-hybrid tech
- No news yet on whether it's coming to India
Next-gen Suzuki S-Cross: what does the spy shot reveal?
Even at first glance, it is easy tell that the design of the new-gen S-Cross is a complete departure from that of the current model. Not only does it look slightly larger, but it also looks more upright, taller and more SUV-ish as compared to the current S-Cross
. In fact, the rounded design of the current model has given way for a more squarish and boxier silhouette, although the styling is still typically Suzuki.
Up front, the face of the new S-Cross is characterised by a much larger grille with a honeycomb-like pattern. The grille is flanked by sleek and stylish headlamps on both sides with tri-beam LED elements, joined by a thick chrome strip running through the grille with the Suzuki logo in the centre. The front bumper has been redesigned with new fog lamp housings and lighting elements and features a central air dam and silver skid plate. One could even say the new S-Cross has a passing resemblance to the Maruti XL6
sold in India.
Some of the other highlights include a new and more muscular bonnet, a gently upward sloping window line and thick, black cladding on all sides. This, however, does not seem to be a top-spec model, as it can be seen wearing wheel covers on its rims. And while we haven’t seen any images of the interior of the new S-Cross yet, expect the cabin to be thoroughly updated too, with a fresh new design, new materials, and more features.
Next-gen Suzuki S-Cross: what else is known?
Technical details of the new-gen S-Cross are still scarce. However, unconfirmed reports suggest that it will continue with an updated version of the Global C platform, the same one that underpins the current-gen model. This platform will also likely be shared with the next-gen Suzuki Vitara that’s sold in several markets abroad.
As for its engine options, globally, the new S-Cross will likely be powered by the 1.4-litre turbocharged BoosterJet petrol with 48V mild-hybrid technology. In some European markets, the S-Cross is even offered with Suzuki’s AllGrip Select 4-wheel Drive system.
Next-gen Suzuki S-Cross: will it come to India?
Following its debut on November 25, the new Suzuki S-Cross will first go on sale in European markets, but there’s no news if this updated model will eventually be brought to India as well.
