Suzuki is unveiling its S-Cross at the 2012 Paris Motor Show - a concept car which heralds the company’s next-generation C-segment crossover model.

Suzuki has been focusing on creating models - such as the Alto - which are characterised by small environmental footprints and low running costs thanks to low fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. The production model of the S-Cross concept will be among the lowest CO2 emitting cars in the crossover C-segment.

PIONEER OF SUV'S

Since launching the Jimny (originally the LJ series) in 1970, Suzuki has expanded its line-up of off-road vehicles to include models such as the Vitara and Grand Vitara; earning the company a reputation as the pioneer of the compact sport utility vehicles (SUVs). Since the latter half of the 1980s, the company has been refining its performance technologies in the field of motor sport.

In 2006, Suzuki united its advanced technologies in the form of the SX4 sport crossover.

Suzuki is also ensuring the new car inherits the on-road handling and performance of the Swift series, the SX4 and the Kizashi.

The crossover will join the Alto, Splash, Swift, SX4, Kizashi, Jimny and Grand Vitara in a line-up which already includes A-, B- and D-segment passenger cars and SUVs. Suzuki will continue to expand its range to meet a wider range of user needs.

EXTERIOR

Looking at the exterior it includes lines running from the front bumper to the rear of the body, by chromed features which extend into the body from LED lights.

It has a mesh grille consisting of dark chrome and silky chrome. It appears aerodynamic because of its roofline which slopes downwards towards the rear and smooth contours on the sides of the front bumper, at the bottom of the doors and on the sides of the rear bumper.

The crossover has a front skid plate, flared wing arches and under mouldings, and 20-inch chrome wheels. The overall length is 4 310mm, width is 1 840mm and height stands at 1600mm, while the wheelbase is 2 600mm.
