A NEW Suzuki S-Cross is due for release next year and will be priced from £24,999.

Two trim levels will be offered on the third generation SUV with higher grade Ultra models costing from £29,799.

The cheaper Motion version features full smartphone connecctivity, traffic sign recognition, blind spot monitoring and adaptive cruise control among its standard features while the Ultra specification includes additions such as a 360 degree view camera, leather upholstery, on-board navigation and a sliding panoramic sunroof.

Both will be powered by a 1.4-litre turbo petrol Boosterjet engine which is claimed to be capable of up to 53.2mpg with emissions of 120g/km in two-wheel-drive manual format.

Automatic transmissions will be offered on both grades for £1,350 extra while all-wheel-drive will be standard on the S-Cross Ultra.

The new model has a more muscular design with larger and more angular wheel arches and smooth flowing lines.

The front incorporates a raised bonnet line, piano black front grille and new design to the three LED position headlamps.

That theme continues at the rear with larger combination lamps that integrate horizontally with the rear centre panel to emphasise the vehicle's width.

Suzuki says both auto and manual two-wheel-drive versions will be capable of 0 to 62mph acceleration times of 9.5 seconds with a maximum of 118mph.

The Ultra model comes with a nine-inch navigation and infotainment screen while Motion grade cars have a seven-inch information panel. Both have a boot of 430 litres with the rear seats upright.

The new S-Cross is to be built in Hungary where Suzuki also produces the Vitara and is due on the road early next year.
