For The Suzuki SX4 S-Cross is cheap compared with rivals and won’t cost much to run. It’s also well equipped, has a practical boot and it handles neatly.
Against Rear headroom is tight for tall adults in models with the panoramic sunroof. The ride can be harsh and the cabin plastics don’t look particularly classy. The diesel engine is noisy, too.
What Car? says
Limited rear headroom aside, the Suzuki SX4 S-Cross is a spacious and practical family car that’s cheap to run and good to drive.

Target Price team says:
The Suzuki SX4 S-Cross is a convincing family car that should definitely be on your shortlist if you want a practical car that’s cheap to run. You won’t get much of a discount, but the S-Cross’s comparatively low prices mean it’s good value for money.
Two engines are available, a petrol and a diesel, both producing 118bhp. The two-wheel-drive 1.6-litre petrol models are cheapest, but we’d recommend going for the 1.6 diesel for its lower CO2 emissions and superior low-rev shove.
Even entry-level SZ3 trim is well equipped, getting 16-inch alloys, air-conditioning, cruise control, front and rear electric windows, heated door mirrors and a USB socket. We’d go for SZ4, though, because this adds climate control, Bluetooth, keyless entry, 17-inch alloys and extra body protection, yet is still competitively priced.
