Suzuki has established its name in motorsports with its line of off-road vehicles. The Japanese automaker has been at the forefront of SUV’s since the launch of the Jimny - consequently bearing the Vitara and Grand Vitara - and has pioneered the crossover segment in Europe with the SX4. But now, Suzuki is forging its way into the crossover C-segment with its newly-launched concept, the S-Cross.
 
In a specially-created Crystal Green Metallic body color, the S-Cross was premiered at the 2012 Paris Motor Show. Sporting 20-inch chrome wheels, the Suzuki S-Cross stands at 1.60 meters tall, 1.84 meters wide, and 4.31 meters long with a wheelbase of 2.60 meters. That makes it similarly-sized to its would-be competitors such as the Hyundai Tucson, Honda CR-V, and upcoming all-new Ford Escape.

Suzuki Service Manager Rommel Cabanela noticed that some of their customers weren't returning for dealer checkups because their service warranty has expired. But that doesn't mean that they should no longer experience car care the Suzuki way. So, to entice Suzuki owners to keep their cars in tip top shape, Suzuki Philippines launched the “Suzuki @ Work” - a free after-sales service camp.

It’s an odd sensation, puttering along in traffic, head and shoulders above everyone else... to look down upon lowly SUV drivers, as you sit at the stoplights. Sir, you do know you have a bald spot, right? No, I mean the one where the paint’s flaked away on your roof.
 
This sensation is made even odder by the fact that the car I’m driving weighs less than most cars. You’re towering over the crowd, yes, but like that tall, skinny kid in high school, that won’t keep you from getting beaten up at recess. Thus, you don’t get the swelled head that most SUV drivers and van drivers get from the rarefied air at this altitude. That’s a good thing, by the way. All cars on the road should be shaped like this. Perhaps thinking outside the box means putting wheels on it.

Nobuhiro “Monster” Tajima proved to world yet again why he's called “King of the Mountain” when finally he shattered the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb's 10-minute barrier last June 26, 2011. Piloting a purpose-built 900 horsepower Team GoPro Monster Sport Suzuki SX4, Monster conquered the 20-kilometer 156-turn “Race to the Clouds,” and reached the 4,300 meter high summit in just 9 minutes and 51.278 seconds, capturing his sixth consecutive overall victory in the process. Strap on your seat belts and take the closest thing to a shotgun ride (courtesy of GoPro) with Monster on what is currently the fastest way up Colorado's Pikes Peak.
