The Suzuki S-Cross 2022 is the successor to the SX4 S-Cross model built in 2013. With a beefy design and revised interior, it also comes as a hybrid and 4×4 drive. We have information on the Comfort and Comfort + equipment and the price of the compact SUV.
The Suzuki S-Cross will go on sale in 2022 for 29,290 euros (as of November 2021). The lettering “SX4” is still emblazoned on the rear, but the addition disappears from the official name of the new edition. From the outside, the new Japanese is now much more beefy and robust. A chrome strip and the brand logo adorn the steeply standing radiator grille. The LED headlights with automatic headlight range control and integrated LED daytime running lights are part of the standard equipment.
The modern-designed rear with a small roof spoiler and newly shaped taillights also look more angular. Underrun protection is indicated on the detached rear apron. A look into the interior creates the impression of a major facelift rather than a new edition. Apart from the position of the touchscreen, little has changed here. The redesigned dashboard now carries the screen above the ventilation slots, which measures seven inches or, with the top Comfort + equipment, optionally nine inches.
Then a panoramic sliding glass roof is also included. Nothing has changed in terms of the trunk volume from 430 to 1269 liters, and the dimensions of 4.5 meters in height and 1.79 meters in width remain the same for the Suzuki S-Cross (2022).
2022 Suzuki S-Cross Hybrid
Under the bonnet of the Suzuki S-Cross, the 1.4-liter four-cylinder turbo with 129 hp and 48-V mild hybrid support, familiar from the SX4 S-Cross, works. The petrol engine develops a torque of 235 Newton meters and transmits the power to the front wheels via a six-speed manual gearbox. The S-Cross is optionally available as a Comfort + version with a 4×4 drive and six-speed automatic.
Using a rotary control, drivers can choose between the driving modes Auto, Sport, Snow, and Lock. With Lock, the force is rigidly transmitted to both axles in a ratio of 50:50. In the second half of 2022, Suzuki will be sending the S-Cross into the race as a hybrid with a newly developed combustion engine, a motor-generator unit, and an automated manual transmission.
The manufacturer has not yet announced the purely electric range. In terms of safety and comfort, the new edition of the compact SUV offers, depending on the equipment, active brake support, adaptive cruise control with stop & go function, a 360-degree camera, a lane departure warning, and drowsiness assistant as well as a blind spot warning, traffic sign recognition, and parking assistant. The Suzuki S-Cross is expected to be available for order from the beginning of 2022.
