Indonesia Live – Suzuki SX4 S-Cross (India-bound)
Shrawan Raja, I'm the Founder & CEO of IndianAutosBlog.com. I love teamwork and talking about cars.
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.
