Three years since we first saw the S-Cross, Suzuki is introducing a new facelift for the C segment crossover. Ground clearance is now slightly higher at 180mm versus 165mm and new design headlamps includes at the rear, newly designed LED rear combination lamps.

The distinctive new interior design utilises an updated soft-touch dashboard pad, framing highlights for the centre panel and newly designed seat fabric for SZ4 and SZ-T models. S-Cross offers room for five occupants with their luggage and the double sliding panoramic glass sunroof fitted as standard on the SZ5 model has one of the largest opening areas in its category (560mm).

All SZ4 models are equipped as standard with seven airbags, ESP, Bluetooth, DAB digital radio, air conditioning, Daytime Running Lights (DRL), 16-inch alloy wheels, cruise control with speed limiter, air conditioning, heated door mirrors, black protective skid plates and black wheel arch extensions.

CO2 emissions are low at just 113g/km for the 1.0-litre 2WD model and 119g/km with optional automatic transmission. The DDiS 2WD model achieves even lower CO2 emissions of 106g/km.

The 1.4-litre Boosterjet engine has a power output of 140 hp and offers 220Nm of torque available from just 1,500rpm which is 41 per cent more than the outgoing 1.6-litre engine. This engine is also 17 per cent more powerful and four per cent more economical versus the 1.6-litre unit.
