Next-gen Suzuki S-Cross leaked ahead November 25 global debut

Suzuki has been working on a new-generation S-Cross for global markets for some time now. A couple of days ago, Suzuki even dropped a teaser previewing the headlamp of the new-gen S-Cross. The new Suzuki S-Cross is slated for its world premiere on November 25, although a new spy shot that has surfaced on the internet has already completely revealed the design of the new-gen SUV. 
  • New-gen Suzuki S-Cross looks more SUV-ish than its predecessor
  • Expected to be powered by 1.4-litre Boosterjet petrol with mild-hybrid tech
  • No news yet on whether its coming to India 

Next-gen Suzuki S-Cross: what does the spy shot reveal?

Just at first glance, one can tell that the design of the new-gen S-Cross is a complete departure from that of the current model. Not only does it look slightly larger, but it also looks more upright, taller and more SUV-ish as compared to the current S-Cross. In fact, the rounded design of the current model has given way for a more squarish and boxier silhouette, although the styling is still typically Suzuki.
Up front, the face of the new S-Cross is characterized by a much larger grille with a honeycomb-like pattern. The grille is flanked by sleek and stylish headlamps on either side with tri-beam LED elements, joined by a thick chrome strip running through the grille with the Suzuki logo in the centre. The front bumper has been redesigned with new fog lamp housings and lighting elements and features a central air dam and silver skid plate. One could even say the new S-Cross has a passing resemblance with the Maruti XL6 sold in India. 
Some of the other highlights include a new and more muscular bonnet, a gently upward sloping window line and thick, black cladding on all sides. This, however, does not seem to be a top-spec model as it can be seen wearing wheel covers on its rims. And while we haven’t seen any images of the interior of the new S-Cross yet, expect the cabin to be thoroughly updated too, with a fresh new design, new materials, and more features. 

Next-gen Suzuki S-Cross: what else is known?

Technical details of the new-gen S-Cross are still scarce. However, unconfirmed reports suggest that it will continue with an updated version of Global C platform, the same that underpins the current-gen model. This platform will also likely be shared with the next-gen Suzuki Vitara that’s sold in several markets abroad. 
As for its engine options, globally, the new S-Cross will likely be powered by the 1.4-litre turbocharged BoosterJet petrol engine with 48-volt mild-hybrid technology. In some European markets, the S-Cross is even offered with Suzuki’s AllGrip Select 4-wheel Drive system. 

Next-gen Suzuki S-Cross: will it come to India?

Following its debut on November 25, the new Suzuki S-Cross will first go on sale in European markets, although there’s no news if this updated model will eventually be brought to India as well. 
That said, Maruti Suzuki is working on a slew of new SUVs for the Indian market. The first of these will likely be the heavily updated Vitara Brezza that’s expected to debut sometime next year. Maruti Suzuki has also been working on the much-awaited five-door Jimny for India. The carmaker, in partnership with Toyota, is also developing a Creta-rivalling mid-size SUV that’s expected to debut sometime in 2023.
