Interior

The interior of the new Suzuki ACROSS is well-crafted with quality upholstery and accents to evoke a sense of comfort, luxury and driving confidence. Further enhancing the driving experience is a 9" touchscreen display which works in conjunction with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as MirrorLink for other compatible smartphones.

The cabins are spacious for both front seat and back seat passengers, but this doesn't mean that luggage space has been compromised as a result. The new ACROSS has a huge 490 litre boot equipped with an electrical outlet and accessory socket for added versatility. There is also ample storage spaces throughout the vehicle including a centre console box.

Plug-in Hybrid Performance

The cutting-edge Plug-In Hybrid system on board the ACROSS provides fantastic fuel economy and exceptionally low CO2 emissions of just 22g/km. The powerful front electric motor delivers vigorous torque at low speeds and combines with the powerful 2.5 litre petrol engine for rapid acceleration at higher speeds.

The system is equipped with four modes: the default EV mode, Auto EV/HV mode, HV mode, and battery charger mode, which the driver can select depending on driving conditions and battery status. In EV Mode the vehicle is driven entirely by the power of the electric motor even under full acceleration. When in Auto EV/HV mode and HV mode, the engine contributes to power delivery when required, such as when the accelerator is pressed strongly. To store electricity for EV mode when the charge is low, the battery charger mode runs the engine to recharge the battery.

Advanced 4x4 Capability

The state-of-the-art E-Four electronic 4x4 system in the new Suzuki ACROSS provides drivers with genuine 4x4 performance while maintaining superior fuel efficiency. Benefits of this system include enhanced stability when setting off on slippery surfaces such as snow covered roads, and confident handling when cornering on varying road surfaces.

At the centre of the E-Four system is the sophisticated AWD Integrated Management (AIM), which not only controls drive force distribution, but also engine throttle control, transmission shift scheduling, Electric Power Steering (EPS) assistance and braking, according to the driving conditions.

Trail Mode is an automatic feature that ensures the best possible grip and control on slippery surfaces. The system works by applying the brakes to wheels that begin to lose grip and redirects torque to wheels that maintain grip. The feature also adjusts the throttle and transmission shift pattern to keep the vehicle moving.

Advanced Safety & Technology Features

The new ACROSS comes equipped with the latest smart safety features including Pre-Collision System (PCS), Lane Tracing Assist (LTA), Blind Spot Monitor (BSM), Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC), eCall and Rear Crossing Traffic Alert (RCTA).

It's also equipped with driver assist systems such as Road Sign Assist (RSA) and Brake Hold.
