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.
