Suzuki S-Cross has won the ‘Best Concept Car Award’ at 10th China International Auto Expo. Scheduled to compete with the Nissan Qashqai, once successfully launched, the vehicle will be a larger C-segment crossover based on an all new platform. Powered by either a 1.6 liter petrol or a 1.6 liter turbodiesel engine, the vehicle will feature the Suzuki i-AWD intelligent four wheel drive system.

Comfortably seating upto five adults in its cabin and enough boot space for holiday luggage, Suzuki S Cross is ideally suited for younger buyers with sporty and adventurous lifestyles. Suzuki states that production model will be one of the lowest CO2 emitting vehicles in its segment. The S-Cross will measure 4310 mm in length, 1840 mm in width and will stand 1600 mm tall while it will sit on a 2600 mm wheelbase and will possess 20” chrome wheels with 235/55R20 tyres.

A new front mesh grill is noticed while roof rails are flush with roof like when not in use. There is also a new front skid plate, wider wheel arches and moldings giving the upcoming crossover a more aggressive stance. LEDs are used for headlights, fog lamps and taillights. However, prices are still not revealed by the company and could be released closer to launch dates.
