The entry-level SZ4 model comes with a basic system that’s easy to get your head around. It features a simple monochrome display flanked by two rotary dials and various menu buttons. A CD player, digital radio, four speakers, a USB socket, Bluetooth, and a multi-function steering wheel also come as standard.
SZ-T and SZ5 cars come with a colour touchscreen that includes all the above features in addition to sat-nav. The system itself is good, because its menus are easy to understand, and its screen is bright and responsive. Connecting you phone takes seconds
Ultimately, while impressive, the S-Cross’s more advanced infotainment still isn’t quite as slick as the touchscreen systems in rivals such as the Yeti and Qashqai. For example, in the Nissan’s case, mobile phone apps can be integrated.
