The official presentation of the cross Suzuki AcrossJuly 2, 2020
The Japanese corporation Suzuki showed the Across cross, which is a variation of the Toyota RAV4.
But when the novelty was created, specialists from the Japanese automaker did not “look back” at the RAV4 itself, but at the Toyota Wildlander cross – Rafa’s closest relative. It has a front part with original headlights and body parts, while Suzuki only redefined the shape of the grille. As a result, RAV4 and Across can be distinguished on the road.
Nevertheless, the design of the stern and interior of the RAV4 and the new items is similar: the differences are only in the nameplates and the small decor. Noteworthy is the fact that Across is currently available in a single version, and this is a rechargeable hybrid, considered in RAV4 one of their flagship variations.
According to the “technique” the new model repeats the Toyota cross with a similar power plant. The atmospheric engine 2.5 operates according to Atkinson’s economical cycle and develops 177 hp. (219 Nm), he is helped by an electric motor (182 hp, 270 Nm). An 18.1 kWh lithium-ion battery is located under the floor. Only on electric traction the novelty is able to cover a distance of up to 75 km via the WLTP cycle, which is 20 km less in comparison with the hybrid RAV4 (95 km).
Production Suzuki Across will establish at the same enterprise in Japan, where they produce RAV4. In Europe, the appearance of new items is expected this fall. Cost is currently unknown.
In addition, Volkswagen has previously shown a restyled Tiguan crossover. At the same time, the German company has not yet begun to inform the price of a new model.
