Paris Motor Show 2012: Suzuki previews new SX4

The next generation SX4 is due to arrive next year and we've been given an idea of what it will look like at the Paris Motor Show in the form of the S-Cross Concept, which will eventually become the SX4. The new SX4 will be a bigger car than before, with more of a crossover look to rival upcoming models like the Ford Ecoboost.

The new SX4 will get increased ground clearance, extra body cladding to add to the 'crossover' appearance plus it will come with either two or four-wheel drive. The concept model features large 20 inch wheels and bold styling, but the production model will be more toned down, with smaller wheels for an improved ride.

Inside there are improvements in interior quality and there should be better refinement too, plus there will be room for five adults with MPV levels of headroom. Boot space is expected to be around 400 litres which makes it a good family car.

As with the current SX4 there's a tie-up with Fiat but the Italian brand is changing the name, dropping Sedici and instead rebranding it as the 500X to maxmise the popularity of the 500 brand. There are no engine details for the SX4 at the moment but it could use the same 1.4-litre TwinAir petrol that's expected to power the 500X along with the 2.0 DDiS from the current SX4.
