The Suzuki SX4 S-Cross is hard to beat when it comes to value for money.read the full model review
This may be the entry-point of the range, but Suzuki hasn’t scrimped on standard equipment. You get 16in alloy wheels, air-con, front electric windows plus a touchscreen infotainment system with a DAB radio, Bluetooth and even sat-nav.,
The S-Cross’s 1.0 petrol engine is actually the same as the one found in the firm’s latest hatchback, the Baleno. It’s powerful enough for the S-Cross to feel comfortable in and out of town, but if you want to sprint down a slip road to get up to speed, or overtake in fast moving traffic, it has to be worked hard. As with most three-cylinder engines, there are some vibrations through the controls, but this is no worse than in some of its rivals.This engine doesn’t pack much of a punch, but there’s enough power and torque for it to feel comfortable in and out of town. It needs to be worked hard to really get a move on, but at least it stays relatively refined when doing so.
