2017 Suzuki S-Cross: New Styling, New Engine, Higher Price

The updated 2017 Suzuki S-Cross has been unveiled ahead of its debut at the upcoming Paris Motor Show. The car manufacturer also revised engine options and technology of the crossover, so you can expect a bit uglier, yet more efficient and intuitive model, which will, by the way, cost a bit more than earlier. Well, not exactly ”a bit”, but almost one grand more expensive, because in comparison with the previous base model that was priced £14,000, while the refreshed 2017 SX4 S-Cross costs £14,999.

2017 Suzuki S-Cross: Engine Options

The carmaker decided to replace the current 1.6-liter engine with an all-new option. They have just introduced a turbocharged 1.0-liter three-cylinder mill, which is more powerful and efficient from the 1.6-liter option. As a matter of fact, the new three-pot will be able to deliver around 111 PS and 170 Nm (125 lb-ft), while the fuel economy should be improved for around ten percent. In addition, the 2017 Suzuki SX4 S-Cross will have a 1.4-liter four-cylinder Boosterjet engine that will also feature improved CO2 emissions and fuel consumption. The unit produces 138bhp and 220 Nm (162lb ft), which is more than enough power for this kind vehicle. The interesting crossover will have an oil-burner option too. It will be the current 1.6-liter diesel, which should come with an output of 120 PS and 320 Nm (236 lb-ft). Suzuki’s Allgrip four-wheel drive system will be available as an option.

Styling Changes and Features

The 2017 Suzuki S-Cross has been totally restyled, but if you ask us, the new bodywork doesn’t seem attractive at all. The carmaker added a completely new front end, which is interesting, yet not better from the previous. However if you like sharp-looking crossovers, this is exactly what you need. Moreover, the manufacturer additionally lifted the ground clearance for 15mm, so the vehicle looks significantly higher.

On the other hand, the new interior is far more better form the previous. They added a higher quality materials and a totally redesigned soft-touch dash, which looks really good. The car got a higher number of standard features, so now offers seven airbags and ESP, as well as air conditioning and cruise control with a speed limiter and DAB. If you need more, there are options like 17in alloys, a rear parking camera with front and rear parking sensors and dual-zone air conditioning. You can also choose heated leather seats, panoramic sunroof, fog lamps and radar brake support.
