The small SUV segment continues to be very successful. A success that is leading Suzuki to design a crossover version of the small one Swift next generation: according to the latest rumors this SUV variant will be based on the Swift Sport, the one therefore focused on performance. It seems that the new generation of the Japanese subcompact will debut in 2022, although the last restyling dates back only to 2020: it will be based on an improved version of Suzuki’s Heartect platform, and will have a evolutionary approach in terms of style and proportions.
The following year will instead be the turn of the Swift Sport, and only in 2024 will it be the turn of the Swift Cross, the famous SUV variant of the Japanese subcompact. As for the first, will arrive in the spring of 2023 and will be equipped with a 1.4-liter turbo engine and a 48-volt mild hybrid system. In addition, it will be equipped with an extremely sporty design and a stiffer suspension system. As for the second, however, it will boast greater ground clearance and a plastic coating on the bodywork, which together with the presence of skid plates will offer the Swift Cross a more adventurous look. Pushing this SUV variant of the subcompact Suzuki will be the same engine that will equip the Sport variant of the Swift, in combination with an AllGrip AWD traction system that will guarantee better performance in all driving conditions, especially in the off-road one. .
According to what was reported by Carscoops, however, another conceivable scenario for a potential Swift Cross would involve a Suzuki branded version of the Toyota Yaris Cross with full-hybrid technology: the two Japanese companies are already doing it with the pairs Suzuki Swace-Toyota Corolla Sport Tourer and Suzuki Across-Toyota RAV4, even if this type of cooperation it may be limited to larger vehicles. In short, there seems to be a lot of meat in the fire: we will see what Suzuki intentions will want to turn into concreteness in the coming years.
