New-gen 2022 Suzuki S-Cross leaked, global debut November 25
The third-generation Suzuki S-Cross has leaked through a set of photos that show the new SUV parked at the firm's stockyard. The new S-Cross is set to make its global debut later this month on November 25
2022 Suzuki S-Cross exterior
The images show that the new Suzuki S-Cross has shed its crossover stance for a more traditional SUV look. There is a high bonnet line now as well as a generally boxier shape to make the S-Cross look more purposeful than before. The face is dominated by an octagonal grille somewhat similar to the one on the Maruti Suzuki XL6, with a thick chrome band and large Suzuki badging cutting across. Also distinctive is are large swept-back LED headlamps and an air dam with a silver skidplate.
In profile, the 2022 Suzuki S-Cross carries a fairly conservative look with simple body panels and an upswept glasshouse. There's a significant amount of body cladding and what seem like 17-inch dual-tone alloys. The rear is more distinctive with its clear, two-part taillamps, the crimped bootlid and more cladding.
2022 Suzuki S-Cross interior, safety
The interiors of the Suzuki S-Cross haven't been seen yet but expect significant changes here too. A larger infotainment system with wireless Android Auto/Apple Carplay can be expected as well as some form of connected car features. Internation-spec models are also expected to get a suite of ADAS functions. Other notable features should be a sunroof, climate control, auto headlamps and wipers, among other things.
2022 Suzuki S-Cross engines, specifications
The new S-Cross should continue to be based on an updated version of the Suzuki Global C platform and carry over engines already seen elsewhere in the Suzuki line-up. The 1.5-litre K15B petrol should be the base engine option in certain markets with its 105PS and 138 Nm and pairing with a 5-speed manual or 6-speed automatic. Also expected is a 1.4-litre Boosterjet turbo-petrol with around 130PS and 235 Nm with the same automatic and a 6-speed manual. A more advanced form of Suzuki's mild-hybrid tech may make an appearance as well. The turbo-petrol engine option could also be offered with Suzuki's AllGrip all-wheel-drive system.
2022 Suzuki S-Cross India launch date, expected price
There is no word yet on the new Suzuki S-Cross' India launch. With a new mid-sized SUV co-developed with Toyota in the works, Maruti Suzuki might see challenges in fitting two similarly sized cars into the market. If the new S-Cross does come to India, expect it to be launched here by late 2022 priced between Rs 9 and 14 lakh.
