The highlights of Suzuki at the Paris Motor Show (1st to 16th October 2016) are the European premiere of the new model of Ignis and the significantly modified SX-4 S-cross.

European premiere for the Ignis

The Ignis, a small crossover vehicle between city car and SUV, was already in the autumn 2015 at the motor show in Tokyo and before that as a study IN IM-4 at the Geneva show 2015. However, the final version of the European world premieres in Paris. According to Suzuki, the Ignis sits on an especially light. In addition, he receives the mild hybrid system, SHVS (smart hybrid vehicle by Suzuki), which is known from the Baleno. It will reduce fuel consumption by brake energy regeneration. The standard consumption decreases at the Baleno 1.2 However only minimally from 4.2 to 4.0 liters. Which motor is used, yet does not specify Suzuki, but should the SHVS how under the Baleno with the 90 PS strong 1.2 sucking gasoline are linked. This includes the 1.0 liter turbo gasoline engine known also from the Baleno 111 HP is probably used. 3.69 m long study had all-wheel drive IN the 4. The new Ignis begins in Europe in the January 2017.

SX4 S cross gets facelift and two turbos

Also the second Paris new Suzuki is a crossover vehicle: the SX4 is S-cross between van and SUV. A completely redesigned version is available at the fair. It is significantly less quirky than the old. A grill with thick, vertical ribbing gives it a more masculine touch. Previously a petrol engine and a diesel engine offered for the SX4 S cross two 1.6-litre engines with 120 HP. The Otto-aspirated engine is now powered by a 1.0-liter turbo and a 1.4-liter turbo. This should be the 90-HP unit from the Baleno and to the 140-HP booster Jet from the Vitara S. Suzuki wants more details only to the fair announced. (sl)
