The last major improvement to the S-Cross lineup came in the first quarter of 2020. At the time, Suzuki decided to electrify this model with its Light Hybrid (MHEV) technology in order to reduce the average emissions in its lineup as soon as possible. The new model will maintain that commitment by introducing a more efficient mechanical offering.

The engine lineup will consist exclusively of gasoline engines. Farewell to the S-Cross diesel engine a few years ago was final. The updated model will receive a 1.4-liter 4-cylinder Boosterjet engine and a new 1.5-liter engine equipped with a 48-volt lightweight hybrid system. Depending on the version configured, it will be possible to choose between a manual transmission or a six-speed automatic transmission.
