Suzuki Motor Corporation has reportedly started production of the S-cross crossover's facelifted version, which is expected for global debut in October at Paris motor show. The computer-generated pictures of the alleged S-cross facelift have been doing the rounds of the internet for the past couple of months. The new spy picture, which has reportedly been taken at production line, confirms the design of the facelift is in line with the CGI pictures.
The spy image taken by Gaadiwaadi.com shows front three-forth angle of the S-cross facelift. The face has been reworked featuring restyled front bumper with larger radiator grille. The new upright grille houses vertical chrome slats flanked by new design projector headlamps. The side profile of of the facelift will get plastic cladding on the lower part of the body extending on to the wheel arches of the car. The interior will be updated with new instrument cluster dials with MID and new seat upholstery with contrast stitching. There are also new colour schemes for the interior.
For global markets, the new S-cross will be powered by 1.6-litre petrol and diesel engine. Rumours suggest that the 1.4-litre Boosterjet petrol engine that powers Vitara in global markets will be on offer. For India, the crossover is expected to continue with 1.3-litre and the 1.6-litre diesel engines. India launch of the facelifted S-cross is expected in early 2017 and it will be priced slighty higher than the current model.
