Here are a couple of spy pics of the next gen 2014 SX4 which has started testing in China. The new Suzuki SX4 is a huge improvement over its predecessor which was jointly developed with Fiat. The successor was previewed by the S-Cross concept at last year’s Paris Motor Show. The car is powered by 1.6 litre petrol and diesel engines. Suzuki continues to source diesel engines from Fiat. The crossover sports a newly developed All Grip 4WD system. Styling wise, the car is a typical Suzuki and has features like daytime LED running lights and the world’s first double sunroof. It will be interesting to see when the new SX4 comes to India Source: indianautosblog, auto.sohu.com
Maruti is planning to go into overdrive in the next two years with a series of new launches planned including the SX4 Crossover The other SX4 model (codenamed YL1) will be a new upgraded saloon that is likely to be launched in the latter part of 2013 or early 2014 with a variety of new features. The SX4 model, originally planned for Europe, is designed by Giugiaro’s ItalDesign studio and is in production since 2006 with the SX4 shared by Fiat and Suzuki; the Fiat-badged model is known as Fiat Sedici. For developing markets like India and China, the saloon version of the same name was developed with a crossover styling. Globally, Suzuki calls the SX4 a ‘sporty crossover’, and the carmaker showcased it at the Auto Expo 2012. Maruti is believed to be targeting a production capacity of 100,000 units per annum for both the new SX4 crossover and saloon models, say sources in the know. The SX4 in the hatchback version occupies a niche in a market of five-door mini-SUV crossovers in Europe and is available in petrol variants of 1.5 to 2.0-litre engines. In diesel trim, the SUV crossover is powered with Fiat’s 1.3 to 2.0-litre engines and is available as a 4WD. It is expected to be introduced in India with similar engine options to boost flagging sales of the SX4, as Maruti is keen to be seen both as a saloon as well as a small car player. Maruti is also is getting its new 800cc diesel engine ready in Japan; this motor will power its new small car that will be launched in end-2013 or early 2014. The new five-door model on the A-star platform (codenamed YL-7) is expected to be rolled out just before Diwali and will offer the same petrol and diesel variants as available in the current A-star, say sources. Also in the pipeline is an upgraded Swift in petrol and diesel variants and a Zen that is due to be out in 2013. Source: http://autocarpro.in/contents/technologyDetails.aspx?TechnologyID=141
