Suzuki Unveils New SX4 Compact Crossover, Sales Begin this Fall
MARCH 05, 2013
The production version of the S-Cross concept, which was displayed by Suzuki at the 2012 Paris Motor Show, was unveiled today in Geneva in the form of the new SX4 compact crossover.
Although the Japanese company initially intended it to be a direct replacement to the original SX4, its designers and engineers decided to “think bigger” in order to meet customers’ demands and so moved up from the B- to the C-segment.
Measuring 4,300 mm long, 1,765 mm wide and 1,575 mm high, the new SX4 is noticeably larger on all dimensions than its forebear (4,135/1,755/1,565 mm respectively) and rides on a 10 mm longer wheelbase (2,600 vs 2,500 mm).
This enables it to offer more interior space and fix one of the main disadvantages of the first SX4: the diminutive luggage space. In its new iteration, Suzuki’s small crossover offers a 430 lt boot that clearly trumps its predecessor’s 270 lt.
