Suzuki has partly revealed the production version of its C-segment crossover, which is based on the S-Cross concept showcased at the Paris Motor Show last year. The Japanese automaker is all set to unveil the new crossover at the 2013 Geneva International Motor Show in March. Keeping most of the information about the crossover to itself, the manufacturer revealed that the new crossover will be featuring an all-wheel drive system as an option along with a standard front-wheel drive system.
The C-segment crossover is based on a new platform. The Japanese automaker will be offering both petrol and diesel engines, with diesel engines likely to be sourced from Fiat as a part of their partnership. In terms of design, the baby SUV will feature modern styling elements on exteriors as well as interiors with a decent list of latest features. The S-Cross crossover is 4310 mm long, 1840 mm wide and 1600 mm high, which is almost the size of the Renault Duster, so we can expect adequate amount of space in the Suzuki crossover.
The production of the C-segment crossover will be taking place a Suzuki’s Hungarian plant and the sales will begin later this year. We can expect the new crossover to hit the Indian market under the Maruti Suzuki badge soon after its global launch. The C-segment crossover is likely to be manufactured in India. If the manufacturer gives it a reasonable price tag, the new crossover can give its rivals the Renault Duster and Ford EcoSport a run for their money.
