Comes three years after the current model made its debut at the same venue.
The Suzuki S-Cross (sold in India as Maruti S-Cross) facelift that was leaked will make its world premiere at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show, according to multiple reports. It will be followed by sales in European markets, initially.
This makes it nearly three years since the current Suzuki SX4 S-Cross made its world debut at the same venue, adhering to Suzuki's general practice of unveiling a major facelift every three years in a product's lifecycle. As part of the facelift, it gets a thoroughly facelifted front-end, featuring an all new upright grille with vertical slats, new projector headlamps, and a redesigned bumper featuring a larger radiator grille.
The interior has also been leaked, which reveals a design identical to the outgoing model. The only changes seen are the updated instrument cluster dials with new MID, new trim options for the dashboard, updated interior color combinations and seat upholstery with contrast stitching.
As of now, the engine lineup for the new Suzuki SX4 S-Cross has not been confirmed. It's unclear if it will retain the same 1.6-liter DDiS diesel and 1.6-liter petrol, or pack the company’s newest Boosterjet engine range. It would offer a 6-speed manual gearbox, while a Suzuki ALLGRIP AWD system will be optional.
