Powering the Suzuki XBee is a 1.0-litre Boosterjet direct-injected turbocharged petrol engine paired to a 6-speed automatic transmission. It’s the same motor that does duty in the India-spec Maruti Suzuki Baleno RS. The power and torque figures of this gasoline unit stand at 99PS at 5,500rpm and 150Nm between 1,700-4,000rpm respectively. This turbocharged motor is boosted with Suzuki’s mild-hybrid system technology SHVS, and comes with an optional AWD (all-wheel-drive) system.
Visually, the all-new Suzuki XBee appears like a compact box with tall stance. It shares resemblance to the Suzuki Hustler, which is also an exclusive Japanese vehicle. Suzuki’s new crossover offers two new driving modes – Sport and Snow. Check Out – Upcoming Maruti Suzuki Cars in India
