Brazil will get the S-Cross from Suzuki’s Hungarian plant.

Suzuki of Brazil conducted the local premiere of the Suzuki SX4 S-Cross at the ongoing 2014 Sao Paulo Motor Show. The show car featured a two-tone brown and white exterior, a customization option that could be extended to the crossover when it launches in Brazil early next year.

India will also get the S-Cross in the same period, and its local premiere was held at the 2014 Auto Expo.

The S-Cross in the European market measures 4.3 meters in length.

The S-Cross for Brazil is announced to launch in three variants – 4×2 MT, 4×4 MT and 4×4 AT. All variants will be powered by a 1.6-liter four-cylinder petrol engine producing about 120 bhp and 155 Nm of torque. The gearbox for the Brazilian buyer would either be a 5-speed manual or a CVT unit. The Brazilian media report that the S-Cross will be imported from Suzuki’s Magyar plant in Hungary.

For India though, the crossover would be made at the Manesar plant in Haryana, and a diesel variant will obviously be offered, apart from a petrol, and possibly even a CNG.

    If 1.3 ltr diesel/ 1.4 ltr petrol engines are the hearts , then it is a poor replica of the “s cross” available in the rest of the world. Gullible we are, no doubt, but indians are awakening to the step- motherly treatment meted out by european & asian auto majors in india.

    Maruti should really think of pricing it below Ecosport if they want to sell this car in India. It looks like an MPV rather than an SUV.
