The facelifted Suzuki S-Cross crossover has been revealed at the Paris motor show.

As well as styling revisions, the S-Cross has a revised engine line-up, improved specification and extra features. The entry price is now £14,999, up from £14,000 for the current 1.6-litre petrol model. It will go on sale in the UK on 17 October.

The 1.6-litre petrol engine is absent from the new S-Cross and has been replaced by turbocharged 1.0-litre three-cylinder and 1.4-litre four-cylinder Boosterjet units, which promise improved CO2 emissions and fuel consumption. The 1.4-litre Boosterjet was introduced in the Vitara earlier this year, and the 1.0 version is also available in the Baleno.

The 109bhp 1.0-litre engine has 9% more torque than the outgoing 1.6, up to 125lb ft. It also reduces emissions by 11% to 113g/km when used with a manual gearbox and improves fuel consumption by 10%.

The 1.4-litre unit generates 138bhp and 162lb ft, which is 41% more torque than the outgoing 1.6-litre engine. A 1.6-litre diesel unit is also available.

The S-Cross’s design has been updated by way of a new front end that Suzuki describes as being more distinctive and upright, while new headlights sharpen the look and are said to operate more efficiently. New LED tail-lights keep the back end up to date and the new car rides higher than the current model, with 180mm of ground clearance compared to 165mm.

Inside, the soft-touch dashboard has been redesigned and the SZ4 and SZ-T models have a new design of seat fabric.

Second-generation soft-roader enters the family crossover fray at the affordable end of the segment, but marginally costlier rivals offer more refinement

Back to top

Three grades of S-Cross will be available: SZ4, SZ-T and SZ5. All have seven airbags and ESP as standard, as well as a DAB, air conditioning and cruise control with a speed limiter.

The SZ-T model, which is aimed primarily at fleet users, adds features such as 17in alloys, a rear parking camera with front and rear parking sensors, dual-zone air conditioning and front foglights.

The range-topping SZ5 features radar brake support, heated leather seats and a panoramic sunroof.

Suzuki’s Allgrip four-wheel drive system is available on the top two grades and with all-three engine choices.

Had a few days with the S

Had a few days with the S-Cross once and agree with Shrub's analysis, amazing value but it was flighty at speed, the 1.6 diesel had a strange notch in torque just a the point you pull away making a smooth starts need a lot more rev's than normal..did no one notice during R&D? - Hate the new look, it did need beefing up but this looks very a Daewoo which is not what you want!

Final comment on front end

With the Vitara you can buy different grills, will the same be possible with the s-cross? Lets hope so!
