The Suzuki S-Cross 2022 made its world debut and this time around it removed its “SX4” prefix. The new Suzuki S-Cross is a huge change from its predecessor in terms of design and it looks more muscular and grown-up. The new S-Cross adopts a larger piano black grille flanked by three-point LED headlights leaning on its urban look. Bigger wheel arches with a bold plastic body coating in black also complete its crossover look.

At the rear, the Suzuki S-Cross gets clear, wider taillights and the bumper also has a bulkier design and looks more bulbous with that bold skid plate. That said, the new Suzuki S-Cross is still a soft-roader with an all-wheel drive (AWD) system, but it seems more capable for off-roading with its more SUV look. However, this surprises because the crossover is roughly the same when it comes to dimensions. It is 4,300mm long, 1,785mm wide and 1,585mm high and has a wheelbase of 2,600mm. These measurements are identical to those of the second generation SX4 S-Cross.

Inside, you can still see carry over items like air vents and switch buttons. But for the most part, the cabin has also been updated. Then there’s a new stand-alone 9.0-inch touchscreen placed at the top of the center console and sure enough it supports Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, but everything else looks very familiar. Whether it’s the air conditioning controls, the drive mode selector or the gear lever, we’ve seen them before on its predecessor.
