Suzuki has revealed the new SX4 S-Cross, with a bulkier design, mild-hybrid engine technology and a fuel economy figure of 53.2mpg.

With a high level of safety equipment and the latest technology to meet the diverse needs of both driver and passengers, the new Suzuki S-Cross offers a high level of standard specification across the range.

Two model grades will be on offer, Motion and top of the range Ultra, with a high level of standard specification fitted to both new S-Cross grades including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone link, keyless entry and start, dual-zone auto air conditioning, heated front seats, front and rear parking sensors.

Like the larger Vitara, the new S-Cross embraces Suzuki’s SUV heritage. The bold and more muscular design enhances its presence, with the front design incorporating a raised bonnet line with larger and more angular wheel arches. This theme extends to the rear with the roof rails and integrated rear spoiler.

This all-new exterior design is complemented with a more spacious and versatile interior which features a new floating infotainment system. Standard equipment for the Motion model includes heated front seats, dual-zone climate control, a 4.2-inch driver information display in the centre of the gauge cluster and a seven-inch touchscreen. It also has 17-inch alloy wheels, automatic LED headlights, aluminium roof rails and electrically folding door mirrors.

Moving up to Ultra adds 17-inch polished alloy wheels, leather seat upholstery, integrated on-board navigation, panoramic sliding sunroof and further driver safety and convenience thanks to a 360* camera.

Both grades are powered by a 1.4-litre K14D turbocharged petrol engine featuring Suzuki’s renowned Boosterjet technology. With the same level of power and torque of a much larger capacity normally aspirated engine (2.0-litre), it offers a 0-62mph time of 9.5 seconds.

This helps deliver great fuel economy figures of 53.2mpg and CO2 emissions as low as 120g/km. The flagship Ultra comes with four-wheel drive as standard, although this lowers fuel economy to 47.8mpg.

Priced from £24,999, the third-generation Suzuki S-Cross will be available to order from January 2022. Want to get a great deal on the outgoing model? Check out our current offers.
