Although we’re used to manufacturers offering a plethora of small SUVs these days, Suzuki goes one step further by having four of them in its range. In this review, we’re looking at the largest: the Suzuki SX4 S-Cross.
The S-Cross range is refreshingly simple, with a choice of either a 1.0-litre three-cylinder or larger 1.4-litre four-cylinder lump petrol engine, both of which are turbocharged for a bit more low-end urge. Manual and automatic gearboxes are available, driving either the front or all four wheels. If you’re after a diesel, you’ll need to look elsewhere.
The model lineup is similarly simple, with just three trims to pick from and a range of dealer-fit accessories with which to personalise your purchase. Whichever version you go for, modern necessities such as air conditioning, Bluetooth connectivity and even cruise control are all standard.
Rivals include Suzuki’s own Vitara, the keen-handling Seat Arona and the multi-talented Volkswagen T-Cross. However, because the S-Cross is one of the larger cars in this class, it actually has a similar amount of boot space to the more expensive Nissan Qashqai.
in our detailed review, we’ll tell you what the S-Cross is like inside, how spacious it is, what it’s like to drive and what it’ll cost you to buy and run.
