The SX4 S-Cross is Suzuki’s attempt to capitalise on the increasingly popular small SUV class. The SX4 has a slightly higher ride height than some rivals, a huge boot and, as far as small SUVs go, it’s also quite enjoyable to drive. Lined up alongside its rivals, the S-Cross looks very cheap to buy, and considering how much standard equipment you get, it’s actually great value for money.

However, with tough competition in the forms of the Vauxhall Mokka, Skoda Yeti and Nissan Qashqai, the S-Cross really needs to stand out. There are three engines to choose from: a turbocharged 1.0-litre and a larger turbocharged 1.4-litre – seen before in the Baleno and Vitara S. Both petrol engines are available with either a manual or an automatic gearbox and all engines get the option of all-wheel drive. Meanwhile, there are three trim levels: SZ4, SZ-T and the range-topping SZ5.

Read on over the next few pages for everything you need to know about the Suzuki SX4 S-Cross before buying one, including which trim level and engine to choose.
