If it's by mid next year or so, that would be good.
If they are planning to launch this new S-cross in India, It will take at least a year or more, possibly in 2023. Maybe they don't launch this new model because Maruti Suzuki and Toyota are developing a Compact SUV that could replace S-cross in 2023.

This looks like a heavily re-worked version of the S-Cross on the same existing platform (Global C?).

This is not a bad thing per se as Suzuki's "Heartect" platform is quite poor from a safety point of view.

As long as the new generation S-Cross is not on the Heartect platform and comes with decent transmission option (read - 1.5 petrol engine mated to a 6 speed AT) and safety features (6 airbags) then it should be a reasonable option for someone to consider.

Autocar reviews the new Suzuki S-Cross.

2022 S-Cross UK review for the base model. S-Cross seems to have transformed itself into a proper Creta rival now. Of course, there is the SUV coming from the Suzuki-Toyota collaboration to compete with Creta but can't help think that this is now a very tempting product.

There may be a reason why Suzuki has not gone for a generation change for Scross - the new Toyota-Suzuki C- segment car. Suzuki may not want to spend on 2 cars of the same segment at the same time. That new car from the alliance is also some 1 or 2 years away, I guess. That's the reason they are launching the current Vitara using Suzuki hybrid technology and test the waters. After 2 or 3 years of new Vitara launch, the next gen Scross may come. That means, minimum 3 years away.

But they made it sure that Scross is now a desirable product in their lineup in terms of looks. Also they didn't fall into the trap of common design language / brand face which many companies follow now making the cars with no character of their own. Suzuki is one rare company who gives special character to most of their cars - be it Swift, Jimny, Vitara or Ignis.

What is lacking for them is the willingness to grow to higher segments.
