BRIDGETOWN, Barbados, Friday January 9, 2015 – From sports and camping to travel and adventure you can pack more in with the all new Suzuki S-Cross. With its stunning European design, the reassurance of 5-star safety, outstanding fuel economy and an extra roomy cabin, the S-Cross is ready to play.
The Suzuki S-Cross is built to challenge expectations on and off road. Its strong go-anywhere performance and smart design inspires new directions, its innovative technology opens new roads and it allows you to cast limitations aside and expand your definition of freedom.
Designed to deliver higher energy output with maximum efficiency, the 1.6 litre S-Cross engine is more fuel efficient, with lower CO2 emissions than many similar sized units.
It’s a vehicle that is built to travel. Even with five people aboard, there’s 430 litres of luggage space. A multi-position luggage board, light luggage hooks and a 12V accessory socket provide added convenience. The 60:40 rear seat configuration allows larger items to be stowed in the rear, while still providing space for two passengers. Its roomy cabin allows five adults to stretch out in comfort with increased cabin room compared to the SX4. Plentiful legroom assures a relaxing ride.
What Car? says: “The S-Cross is roomy in the back even for taller people.”
The S-Cross is a vehicle that’s been designed and built for the unexpected. High performance technologies help keep you safe on the road, backed up by top-of-the-line safety features. Whether you take the adventurous road or the safe road, they’re the same in the S-Cross. Seven airbags provide extra protection which comes from front and side airbags for the driver and front passenger, a knee airbag for the driver, and left and right side curtain airbags.
The S-Cross has received a maximum 5-star rating in the new independent crash testing results from Euro NCAP, and acknowledged as one of Europe’s safest cars. A safety-engineered body incorporates Suzuki’s TECT (Total Effective Control Technology) for lightness and occupant safety. Crumple zones absorb and dissipate energy, and remaining energy is directed around the cabin.
With AllGrip the all new S-Cross is a true all-weather, all-terrain, all-you-need performer. Refined on the road and tough when you venture off it. The selectable ALLGRIP iAWD (intelligent All Wheel Drive) technology delivers driving pleasure and peace of mind in any condition.
Autocar says – “Suzuki’s have a ‘feel’ to the way they ride and handle that is as distinctive as that of any Ford, Mercedes or BMW. Whether it’s a Swift Sport or a Grand Vitara, there are consistencies that mean you almost know what to expect before you get inside. The S-Cross is no exception. It steers with a pleasingly light but consistent weight and is moderately geared at 2.9 turns lock to lock. The pedal weights are nicely judged – light but with good responses and feel. The gearshift is positive and accurate, too. So far, so Suzuki.”
