After making a good impression at this year’s Auto Expo, Suzuki SX4 S-Cross managed to stay in line next to Celerio in terms of exterior looks. Originally being touted as a flagship model, the upcoming SX4-Cross seems to be the company’s first big CUV launch that is aimed at acquiring market stakes in various parts of the world. Even though body design is nothing out of the ordinary, but it does stand out of the crowd because of its hatchback and compact SUV looks. This affordable yet stylish family vehicle is everything that you wished for.
2016 Suzuki SX4 S-Cross – Exterior and Interior
Giving the “not so ordinary” look a boost in imaging is the LED lights that have been incorporated in both the car’s front and rear sides. The fog light located on its back and conveniently placed into the bumper also lends a unique design module. 2016 Suzuki SX4 S-Cross will come riding on large 17 inch wheels alongside the moderate amount of usage of scuff plates. Making this vehicle a true off-roader is its body construction, which has been made out of high strength steel and aluminium. Chrome outlining does not essentially increase the car’s elegance, but on the contrary it looks slightly out of place. Most of the S-Cross versions have enough space in its interior to accommodate fully grown adults inside. The seats can be folded flat to further increase cabin size to facilitate additional carrying of cargo. There have been a lot of adjustments made to allow most people to sit comfortably without worrying about head/legroom. Even though seating arrangement is quite okay, the car’s inflexible suspension makes things worse while traversing through rough types of roads. 2016 Suzuki SX4 S-Cross has simple button control technological features that are properly labelled and extremely easy to use. Connecting to Bluetooth can require a little bit of effort for which you might need to refer to the user’s manual. Overall, this car has just enough features to satisfy family expectations, which doesn’t go overboard.
