Suzuki’s Nissan Juke rival to arrive in 2015 image

The Japanese based automaker Suzuki will introduce a direct rival for the Nissan Juke, across the Old Continent, in 2015.

Suzuki is planning to develop its first ever B-segment crossover, which will rival models like the popular Nissan Juke, its cousin the Renault Captur, the Peugeot 2008, Ford Kuga, Chevrolet Trax or Opel Mokka. The model in question will be assembled at the company’s plant in Hungary, the same facility which gives birth to the S-Cross. The Suzuki S-Cross will move up in its class by gaining size in order to make room for the new baby crossover.

The new Suzuki B-segment crossover will use the same platform as the S-Cross but it will have an edgier design and it will offer a wide range of customization options. Recent reports are indicating that the model in question will make its way onto the market, in Europe, in 2015. Besides the new B-segment crossover, Suzuki is also planning to replace the Alto and the Splash, next year. These will be moved forward in order to make room for a more spacious B-segment car, which should rival the Note too. Additional details on these models are limited for the moment and will be announced over the following months.
