The 2022 Suzuki S-Cross has just been unveiled as the brand’s newest addition to its ever-growing crossover lineup. While the nameplate may seem brand new, it has been around for much longer in the form of the Suzuki SX4. As its newest version, it comes with a more mature and rugged look compared to its last version which aimed to be a little more sporty.
On the outside, the Suzuki S-Cross features a similar front fascia to that of its MPV brother the Suzuki XL7. It comes with a large and bold grille which is flanked on either side by LED headlights. Right underneath the headlights are the crossover’s signal lights as well as what appear to be its halogen foglights. At the center of its lower grille, the Suzuki S-Cross appears to have space for front sensors along with a box ready for some sort of radar technology to be placed in.
Moving on to the side and the crossover comes with a clean and smooth look. It does come with repeaters on either side along with black cladding that extends from the front of the car to the rear.
At the rear, the S-Cross gets a pair of clear LED headlights which are larger than its outgoing model. If the lights look familiar it’s because it features a similar design to what you can find on the Volkswagen T-Cross. Continuing with its rear looks, the S-Cross comes with a rugged rear bumper that also comes with a plastic skid plate.
On the inside, the S-Cross comes with a modern cabin. It features a multilayer dashboard along with a large touchscreen display and angular vents. It also appears to have automatic climate control, however, this could change depending on the regional specification of the vehicle. Aside from this, not much else is known about the new crossover.
Powering the 2022 Suzuki S-Cross is a 1.4-liter engine that is paired with mild-hybrid technology that produces 127 hp and 235 Nm of torque. Transmission options for the crossover include a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic. While it normally sends power to the front wheels, an ALLGrip version is also available.
The Suzuki S-Cross will initially go on sale first in the European market, followed by Latin America, and then it will go on sale in the Oceania and Asia regions last.
