We’ve received a couple of pictures of the facelifted Suzuki S-Cross, undisguised. The pictures here were snapped at a dealer presentation that took place in France recently. Though it’s just a facelift of the second-generation compact crossover, the changes appear pretty extensive.
The restyling can be seen quite clearly as compared to the current model – the whole front portion of the S-Cross has been reworked, entirely. These revisions include a new bumper, a larger trapezoidal metal front grille, an entirely new headlamp design and bonnet as well.
It is said that the facelifted S-Cross will also come with higher ground clearance too. Over on the inside, the facelifted model is expected to receive an updated cabin and dashboard – to keep things fresh.
A new range of Boosterjet engines can be expected, including 1.0 and 1.4 litre petrol motors and a 1.6 litre diesel option. A six-speed automatic transmission will be available for all units. It’s said that only the 1.4 litre and 1.6 litre mills can be paired with a six-speed manual, while the 1.0 litre unit will be available with a five-speed manual.
While no longer available in Malaysia following the Proton-Suzuki partnership, the S-Cross here had a sole 1.6 litre M16A four-cylinder petrol engine with 117 hp and 156 Nm of torque. It was mated to a CVT transmission with seven virtual ratios and came with a front-wheel drive configuration. Launched in late 2014, the S-Cross was priced at RM129,888, on-the-road sans insurance.
