Finally today we can get to see how the future of the SX4 will pan out. The Suzuki S-Cross, a C-segment crossover concept car is set to debut at 2012 Paris Motor Show as a route map.
The unveiling matters to us, as we have already shown you the spyshot of the new SX4 under camo and the SRK rendering of the sedan version, which to us is Maruti's biggest challenge in the last 30 years.
While the Swift, Wagon R and the Dzire have moved to their next generations, the SX4, launched in 2006, has made do with cosmetic makeovers to sustain sales.
Suzuki say that the crossover concept S-Cross implements an “Emotion x Quality x Aerodynamics” design theme, which is characterized by unique and dynamic lines. Suzuki has infused design elements which suggest stability and solidity in creating a cutting-edge crossover look.
There are no details available on the powertrain front, but going by logic, the new SX4 could deploy petrol engines ranging from 1.6L to 2.0L and the Fiat Multijet options for diesel variants.
The production version of the concept will be ready by mid-2013, and should roll out of Suzuki's plant in Hungary. The sedan variant is expected to begin testing either in 2013 or later in this year.
Will this new design theme would do to the SX4 what "Fluidic" did for Hyundai?
