The new Suzuki SX4 Crossover has been unveiled at the 2013 Geneva International Motor Show and is the larger slibing to the current SX4 which will stay in production.
The SX4 Crossover has a larger foot print than the SX4 at 4,300mm (l) x 1,765mm (w) and a 2,600mm wheelbase, the distance between front and rear occupants is 814mm and it can carry 430 litres of luggage, which is some 160 litres more than the SX4.
The Suzuki SX4 Crossover is powered by the choice of either a 1.6-litre petrol and 1.6-litre diesel engine.
The 1.6-litre petrol engine is mated to a 5-speed manual transmission as standard but there is the option of continuously variable transmission (CVT) transmission. The petrol model can be specified with two-wheel drive or four wheel drive. The 2WD drive models output 125 g/km with either the manual or CVT transmission and the 4WD model 136 g/km with either transmission.
The 1.6-litre diesel engine is married to a 6-speed manual gearbox and is available with two-wheel drive (CO2 110 g/km) or four-wheel drive (CO2 110 g/km); the CO2 emissions figures are where the SX4 Crossover is fitted with the Auto Start Stop system.
The continuously variable transmission (CVT) has an auxiliary transmission which extends the range of gear ratios for better acceleration, hill climbing performance and fuel economy. A straight shift gate provides ease of use. Plus, a seven speed manual mode allows the driver to shift up and down using paddles without letting go of the steering wheel.
The Suzuki SX4 Crossover is equipped with front; LED daytime running lamps, a colour range which includes Crystal Lime Metallic and Amethyst Grey Pearl Metallic. There is the option of a panoramic sunroof with one of the largest opening areas in its class with double sliding glass panels
