A new SUV has been revealed by Suzuki worldwide and it holds great importance for India and it might come. Yes we can only hope that Maruti brings in a flagship SUV over the Brezza and this is the prime contender.
What is it called?
Called as the ACross it is the opposite of what is happening in India with the Toyota-Maruti agreement. In India Maruti builds and supplies the Baleno and soon it will also give the Brezza. The ACross is Toyota doing that instead. So it means supplying its famous RAV4 SUV to Suzuki in-turn. Thus the ACross is a slightly different looking cross-badged RAV4.
How does it look?
We think it looks rather handsome and is an attractive SUV. The front especially is our favourite bit with the two bit Suzuki logo with a bigger lower grille. The headlamps wrap-around and a big 'S' logo further gives it added presence. It is a crossover but gets cladding, roof-rails and all the usual SUV design details.
What about Interiors?
It is quite luxurious inside while being an all black interior. The interior is obviously shared with the Toyota including the centre console with the big touch-screen. There is also a lot of space and all the technology that a premium crossover should have.
The Across will have a plug-in-hybrid which means it has the 2.5l petrol combined with the electric motors. There is also all-wheel drive as it comes with the 4x4 system which Suzuki has.
Will it come to India?
That is a question which cannot be answered at the moment but no doubt this is an appealing SUV that would work in India. Of course Toyota needs to build it here and supply to Suzuki which seems highly unlikely at the moment but who knows, this could be the future premium SUV from Maruti!
