Suzuki will also be revealing a revised version of the SX4 S-Cross at the Paris show.

The facelifted model - which comes with a striking new front grille and other styling revisions - features 1.0-litre and 1.4-litre Boosterjet direct-injection turbo engines that replace the existing 1.6 petrol unit.

The 1.6 DDiS engine will stay in the new S-Cross range which will be launched in the UK in mid-October.
