Engines

The engine options are 1.6-litre petrol and 1.6-litre diesel.

  • 1.6-litre petrol engine

The 1.6-litre petrol engine is based on the current M16A. Lower friction and lower weight in the engine and related parts heighten fuel economy without detracting from the high power and torque of the M16A.

  • 1.6-litre diesel engine

Lightness and low friction help to give the 1.6-litre diesel engine superior fuel economy. A variable geometry turbocharger ensures plenty of torque from the low end of the rev range, so the driver can enjoy powerful, perfect torque performance at all times. A newly designed sound insulating engine cover increases passenger comfort by suppressing the vibration and noise that characterise diesel engines.

Transmission systems

Transmission systems designed for the new SX4 Crossover help to improve performance and fuel economy and ensure the type of easy, sporty gear shifting which makes driving so enjoyable.

  • Manual transmission

A five-speed manual transmission is available with the 1.6-litre petrol engine. Optimised gear ratios boost performance and fuel economy. And heightened rigidity in the transmission case suppresses noise and vibration to make driving more relaxing. A six-speed manual transmission is mated to the 1.6-litre diesel engine. Optimised gear ratios increase fuel economy.

  • CVT transmission

The continuously variable transmission (CVT) has an auxiliary transmission which extends the range of gear ratios for an outstanding combination of acceleration, hill climbing performance and fuel economy. A straight shift gate provides ease of use. Plus, a seven speed manual mode allows the driver to shift up and down using paddles without letting go of the steering wheel.

Environmental performance

Suzuki developed the new SX4 Crossover to have remarkably low CO2 emissions for a C segment crossover. An Engine Auto Start Stop (EASS) system further increases fuel economy, limits exhaust emissions, and makes driving more pleasurable by limiting noise and vibration.

The CO2 emissions target for the new SX4Crossover petrol models are

  • 125g/km* with two wheel drive (2WD) manual transmission
  • 125g/km with 2WD CVT
  • 136g/km* with 4WD manual transmission
  • 136g/km with 4WD CVT.

The CO2 emissions for the diesel models are

  • 110g/km* with 2WD manual transmission
  • 115g/km* with 4WD manual transmission.

These figures will be among the lowest in the segment.

Safety
  • Light but impact absorbing body and various safety features designed for five star Euro NCAP rating*

The new SX4 Crossover gives both drivers and passengers peace of mind in everyday motoring by means of its superior stability and comprehensive active and passive safety facilities. It also incorporates a range of standard safety features which protect pedestrians.

Comfort and convenience

A spacious, airy cabin and a generously sized luggage area ensure convenience and comfort for the whole family during day-to-day commutes and extended weekend trips.

Cabin and luggage area

4,300mm overall length and a 2,600mm wheelbase allow plenty of cabin space; the distance between front and rear occupants is 814mm.

The front seatbacks are shaped to give rear passengers plenty of knee clearance. Even long journeys are relaxing. And even with the rear seat in an upright position, the new SX4 Crossover is a class leader in terms of luggage capacity (430 litres).
