How it copes with people and clutter

Suzuki SX4 S-Cross hatchback front space

Even very tall people will have enough room in the front seats of an SX4 S-Cross. There’s lots of head- and leg room, even on models with a panoramic sunroof.

Both front doors have a pocket that will accept a 1.0-litre water bottle, and Suzuki has included a cupholder between the front seats. Between the driver and front passenger is a large cubbyhole with a flip-up armrest.

Just in front of the gearlever is another large cubbyhole, perfect for storing things such as wallets, keys and mobile phones. There’s a decent amount of storage space in the S-Cross’s glovebox, too. The door apertures are tall and wide, so getting in and out of the S-Cross should present few problems, especially so since the seats are quite high.

Suzuki SX4 S-Cross hatchback rear space

The back seats are set higher than the front ones, meaning head room is tight for adults, particularly in models with a panoramic sunroof. Children and teenagers will be fine.

Fortunately, leg room is much better, as is shoulder room. Two adults should be able to sit comfortably. Fitting three passengers side-by-side will be a squeeze, though, and the S-Cross has a pronounced floor for the middle passenger’s feet to straddle.

Each door has a pocket but they’re not easy to access, nor as deep, as those in the front. Like the front seats, the rears also have a centre armrest. There are two cupholders, as well. The back of the front passenger seat has a convenient map pocket.

Again, the door apertures are reasonably wide, making access to the rear a straightforward process for larger passengers.

Suzuki SX4 S-Cross hatchback seating flexibility

The rear seatbacks split in a 60/40 configuration and you fold them down by pushing buttons next to the head restraints. This can be done quite easily with one hand, because the seat backrests aren’t particularly heavy or stiff.

The rear seat backrests can also be reclined slightly for improved comfort in SZ-T cars and above. This handy feature is only offered on a handful of other small SUVs, such as the Mini Countryman.

Suzuki SX4 S-Cross hatchback boot space

Boot space is generous in the SX4 S-Cross; bigger than a Skoda Yeti’s and on a par with Nissan Qashqai’s.

It’s roomy but it’s practical, too. Access is wide, the floor is low and the boot lip is flush with the floor, so heavy items don’t have to be lifted too far inside.

It’s a square shape, too, and each side has a deep cubbyhole. Lifting up the boot floor reveals more space beneath, which is perfect for storing more valuable items and keeping them out of sight. On that subject, there’s a removable luggage cover, too. Other handy features include tie-down hooks and a luggage net.
