Will compete with the Renault Duster and Ford EcoSport in Indonesia.
PT Suzuki Indomobil Sales (SIS) presented the successor of the Suzuki SX4 (crossover), the Suzuki SX4 S-Cross, at the Indonesia International Motor Show 2014 (IIMS 2014), but without committing to a launch date.
SIS officials said they have carried out feasibility studies for the car and will observe the response through the showcasing.
Measuring 4.3 m long, 1.76 m wide, 1.58 m tall, and with a wheelbase of 2.6 m, the SX4 S-Cross is powered by 1.6-liter petrol and diesel engines which come in 2WD and 4WD variants.
The 1.6-liter petrol engine that has the highest possibility of the local launch, outputs 118 bhp at 6,000 rpm and 156 Nm at 4,400 rpm. It can be had with either a five-speed manual transmission or a CVT.
Features on the most expensive S-Cross variant include 7 airbags, ESP, a four-mode driving program, 430 liters of luggage space, 170 mm of ground clearance, 17-inch wheels, panoramic sunroof, projector headlamp and daytime running lamps.
Maruti Suzuki will launch the SX4 S-Cross next year, having shown it at the Auto Expo, and commenced road testing in early 2014.
