Spy shots showing the production version of the China-made Suzuki SX4 S-Cross, it will be launched on the China car market in early 2014, price will range from 100.000 to 140.000 yuan. Suzuki will drop the ‘SX4’ part of the name so it will simply be called ‘S-Cross’, making sure nobody confuses it with the Suzuki SX4 hatchback, which has nothing to do with this S-Cross MPV.
The S-Cross is a much larger vehicle based on the platform that also underpins the Kizashi sedan. The S-Cross will be made in China by the Chang’an-Suzuki joint venture. It is aimed squarely at the successful Nissan Qashqai which is made in China by the Dongfeng-Nissan joint venture.
The S-Cross will be powered by a 1.6 liter engine with 120hp, mated to a 5-speed manual or a CVT. Size: 4300/1765/1585, wheelbase is 2600.
