New Suzuki S-Cross to Launch Soon in India
The 2017 Suzuki SX4 S-Cross facelift was revealed by the Japanese carmaker ahead of the Paris Motor Show. It came to India in 2015 as the maiden product of Maruti Suzuki’s new premium dealership- NEXA. While the outgoing model failed to garner an encouraging response from the customers, this new facelift might witness a different reaction. The car is endowed with a number of design and cosmetic updates that enhances the appeal of this new car. Not only does the 2017 Suzuki SX4 S-Cross come with a new face, but it also gets a fresher set of engine options. The makers have done away with the droopy look of the car, and given it a bolder look to attract car buyers. The front grille now gets a more prominent distinction and is lined in chrome fixtures. The headlights now wear a more attractive look with LED fitments and the taillights follow suit with standard LED bulbs. There’s a more rugged black plastic diffuser and the ground clearance has been increased by 15mm.
New Suzuki S-Cross Coming Soon
The cabin too mostly remains the same as it uses soft-touch materials and framing highlights for the centre control panel. The double sliding panoramic glass sunroof is one of the largest in the segment. this new car will boast of features like, satellite navigation, a rear parking camera, front and rear parking proximity sensors, and dual automatic climate control. It will also have daytime running lights, which are more prominent now and heated door mirrors. There will be a 7 inch touchscreen infotainment system that supports Apple CarPlay and MirrorLink, and a double sliding panoramic glass sunroof. The S-Cross SZ5 model offers a segment leading luggage space of 560 litres.
The biggest change, however, will be under the hood and it is likely to be inspired by the Baleno. The India-bound model is likely to come with an all-new M15 1.5 litre petrol mill that develops power worth 100bhp at 5900rpm and 133Nm of torque at4100rpm. The diesel powertrains – 1.3 litre and 1.6 litre multijet units, could be retained in the facelift model as well. The former is good for 89bhp and 200Nm of torque, and the latter churns out 118bhp of power and 320Nm of torque. Alternately, the makers also have an option to fit the 1.0 litre Booster Jet mill that will debut with the Baleno RS later this year. The petrol variant will deliver a mileage of round 16 kmpl, while the diesel variant will give a mileage of roughly 23.65 kmpl. The petrol model is likely to be priced within Rs. 7 to 10 lakhs, while the diesel model will expectedly fall within the bracket of Rs. 8.5 to 12 lakhs.
If media reports are to be believed, the crossover will go on sale in India in the second half of 2017. The updated model has already created a buzz amongst automobile enthusiasts due to it being stronger, bolder and more efficient than the current one.
