The business strategy adopted by Suzuki Italy gives its fruits. The banner of the claim “the Whole of the series, without surprises”, with prices attack aggressive, the Italian branch of the house of Hamamatsu has gained ground, as well as with the adoption of the hybrid technology that after Ignis, Flash, and Swift now sees a widening of the range with the extension to models Vitara or S-Cross.
The new versions of the two sport utility vehicles take the new engine turbo petrol Boosterjet 1.4 from 129 Hp and 325 Nm mated to a hybrid system 48 Volt that allows you to reduce power consumption by up to 25% in the urban cycle, and up to 20% on the combined cycle, compared to the propeller standard.
the Heart of the Hybrid technology of the brand in japan is the Integrated Starter Generator 48 Volt with an alternator that brings together the functions of three components (electric motor, alternator, and starter), providing a surplus of power in the acceleration phases and in recovery, while in the phase of deceleration, the electric drive is able to independently manage the rotation to the minimum of the engine, without being fed the gasoline thus eliminating fuel consumption during slow-downs.
The entire system, including the lithium-ion battery and the converter 48-12 Volt, it has a weight of 45kg and is particularly compact to maintain the spaces used for passengers and luggage.
The new hybrid Vitara or S-Cross will recognize it for the badge “Hybrid” on the tailgate, and, for the Vitara, for the presence of the full Led headlamp from the original design with a profile that is light blue on the inside of the optical unit.
Rich, as usual, the standard equipment of the two cars and in the field of driver assistance systems, the Vitara offers Cruise Control, Adaptive, devices, “Guardaspalle”, for the monitoring of blind spots, “Vaipure” that warns of the presence of other vehicles maneuvering in reverse gear, “Occhioallimite”, for the recognition of road signs.
And then again, there are“Attentofrena” able to prevent collisions with cars and pedestrians, thanks to the camera, laser and radar, “Guidadritto” to maintain lane and “Restasveglio” to avoid the blows of sleep, while on the S-Cross is present in the device “Attentofrena” integrated with the Cruise Control, Adaptive.
On both versions is, however, available as an optional extra, all-wheel drive electronically controlled 4×4 Allgrip with the four selection modes (Auto, Sport, Snow, Lock).
