Suzuki took the wraps of its all-new C-segment crossover at the Paris Motor Show. The S-Cross, as it’s called in its concept form, is due to go on sale in early 2013, replacing the old SX4. The new crossover is not particularly pretty, but it is much posher than the car it is going to replace. It is a good effort by Suzuki to step up its game in this segment.
Suzuki of course has a long history in making compact SUVs and 4x4s, and they’ve utilized all that experience to make sure the new S-Cross is a worthy contender in this populated class. This new model will mark Suzuki’s full-scale entry into the market for C-segment crossovers.
What sets this crossover apart form most of the rivals is that it has genuine off-road capabilities. Being versatile has been one of the main goals when designers and engineers were developing this car. The car’s designed to cater for fuel-saving driving, sportier driving, and even driving on snow.
The S-Cross is a good-looking car as well, even though some of the details and lines – and that Crystal Green Metallic – are a bit hard to fathom. Of course, it will change and evolve into a production model with less annoying details over the next few months. We hope they keep the 20-inch chrome wheels though.
