New Suzuki SX4- S-Cross Starts from £14,999 in the UK [Gallery]

Suzuki has released UK pricing information on the all-new SX-4 S-Cross a few months before it lands in dealerships on October 1. Prices start from £14,999 for the base petrol model with front-wheel drive and rise to £23,549 for the top-of-the line all-wheel drive diesel version. The 4.3m long five-door model is Suzuki’s first effort in the compact crossover segment and it will be built at the Japanese brand’s Magyar plant in Hungary. There are only two engine options for the SX4 S-Cross, a 1.6-liter petrol delivering 118hp (120PS) 156Nm (115 lb-ft) paired to either a five-speed manual or an optionally available continuously variable transmission (CVT), and a 1.6-liter turbo-diesel producing 118hp (120PS) and 320Nm (236 lb-ft), which is offered exclusively with a 6-speed manual and standard start-stop system. Both powerplants can be optionally combined with Suzuki’s new generation ALLGRIP four-wheel drive system that has four driver-selectable modes – auto, sport, snow, and lock. As far as trim grades are concerned, there are four options to choose from, named SZ3, SZ4, SZ-T and SZ5, all of which come equipped with seven airbags and ESP as standard, while notable extras include a panoramic roof consisting of two sliding glass panels with a combined length of 1,000mm.
