Suzuki isn’t letting the Europeans have it all their own way at next month’s Paris Motor Show with confirmation we’ll see the facelifted version of the S-Cross compact SUV.
Biggest news is under the bonnet; the facelifted Suzuki S-Cross scores new turbocharged 1.0-litre three-cylinder and 1.4-litre four-cylinder engines, as seen in the Baleno and Vitara respectively, to replace the current 1.6-litre petrol engine.
At this stage Suzuki has not released further information on the new powerplants.
What we do know however is that the 1.6-litre diesel (not currently sold in Australia) will remain available in the new car in Europe.
On the styling front, the facelifted S-Cross amps-up its SUV credentials, shying away from the crossover look of the existing car thanks to a chunky new chrome grille, more rugged bumper cladding, new headlights and a reprofiled bonnet.
Although not yet shown, the interior is also expected to be given a make-over, with Suzuki's touchscreen infotainment interface expected to make an appearence, along with trim and detail changes.
European sales commence in mid-October but Suzuki Australia’s marketing boss Ruth John told TMR Australian plans are not yet confirmed.
