Suzuki SX4 S-Cross Price, Specifications and Pictures
Suzuki has revealed its all-new 2016 SX4 Crossover. The new Suzuki SX4 Crossover‘s design basis on: emotion, quality and aerodynamics. Aerodynamics which improve fuel economy, a bold, characteristic crossover shape, dynamic lines and numerous sophisticated touches all combine to create a highly distinctive look.
Suzuki S-Cross has a shape that doesn’t really break new ground in a styling sense, but is neat and tidy in its execution and likely to remain timeless. Arguably the most distinctive feature is the clamshell bonnet, which gives the vehicle a solid European look. He explained that a lot of work has gone into improving aerodynamic penetration in order to reduce consumption and emissions.
The Suzuki S-Cross is larger than the superseded SX4 and is aimed at those who want a family wagon capable of handling the kids in their teenage years. Its back seat and boot space are considerably larger than its ancestor.
Smoothness and sophistication on the road were the first impressions when we took our Suzuki S-Cross onto the famed Great Ocean Road in Victoria. Though there’s a fair bit of tyre noise on coarse-chip surfaces, it’s pleasantly quiet on other roads. Dirt tracks were traversed with ease, even in the front-drive S-Cross model.
