Suzuki Australia is challenging for Australia’s Small SUV crown, with the unveiling of the S-Cross Turbo and Turbo Prestige models.
Originally introduced to the Australian market in 2014, the evolution of this vehicle continues to ring true with the Suzuki philosophy of value-packed and value for money products with the principal focus remaining on the lifestyle desires of its customers.
Suzuki Australia General Manager Automobiles, Andrew Moore stated: “Now with turbo across the range, the new S-Cross Turbo provides outstanding performance and amazing fuel economy. With the immense popularity of the Vitara S Turbo, we know customers will now see the S-Cross Turbo as a great Cross-Over option”.
The raft of changes begin under the bonnet with a 6-speed automatic transmission and commanding 1.4-litre Boosterjet Turbo engine providing thrilling agility and outstanding fuel economy with a consumption rate of just 5.9L/100kms. Substantial structural weight savings result in an impressive power-to-weight ratio that delivers an exciting drive.
The facelift also introduces an advanced built-in multimedia satellite navigation system with Apple CarPlay®, 7-inch multi-touch colour display and reversing camera.
The exterior presents more distinct and premium front end styling, offering a bold road presence, whilst the intelligent design of the interior delivers 430-litres of cargo space, one of the largest capacities in the category.
The S-Cross Turbo Prestige variant is further complimented with 17” polished alloy wheels, leather interior, automatic LED headlights, rear parking sensor and more.
Andrew Moore advised, “In the small SUV category, we know customers are refined and expect the highest level of features. Accordingly, just like we did with Vitara, we’ve included all the key features standard in S-Cross, like Sat Nav, Apple CarPlay®, Keyless Start, Privacy Glass and more”.
Moore continued, “With Vitara, S-Cross Turbo and the new IGNIS Light SUV landing next year, Suzuki will have the biggest array of options for any customer looking to move into a small SUV – whether it be owners of light or small hatches, or empty nesters looking to downsize into a smaller but spacious SUV, Suzuki will have the best small SUV range to test drive”.
Pricing for the S-Cross starts at $28,990 drive away for the Turbo, and $30,990 drive away for the Turbo Prestige.
With turbo-charged performance, exceptional fuel economy, superior cargo space and advanced technology, the S-Cross has defined a new and exciting destination for the compact SUV category.
