Suzuki SX4 S-Cross Review

The Suzuki SX4 S-Cross carries over one familiar badge but into a new crossover design that blurs body style boundaries. Smaller than compact SUVs such as the Hyundai ix35 and Kia Sportage but larger than compact crossovers like the Holden Trax and Peugeot 2008, the S-Cross is more likely to butt heads with the Nissan Dualis and Mitsubishi ASX. The Suzuki S-Cross is in fact the company’s successor to the previous SX4, which even Suzuki admits was too small and too quirky.

Whereas the SX4 was a distinctly boxy, tallboy design, the new-generation S-Cross has been styled with a more traditional SUV in mind. It’s also longer and wider than the outgoing model. However, along with more size and space, there’s also a significant price hike for the new model. And along with increased prices comes a lift in equipment levels, with highlights that include 16-inch alloy wheels, Bluetooth with music streaming, cruise control and seven airbags as standard on the base model.

The GLX Prestige adds leather upholstery and a double-sliding panoramic sunroof. The Suzuki SX4 S-Cross is powered by a 1.6-litre four-cylinder petrol engine that produces 86kW and 156Nm – outputs lower than the 112kW/190Nm of the 2.0-litre motor that inhabited the SX4. It’s a belt-tightened development of Suzuki’s own ‘M16A’ engine, intended to improve efficiency through detailed weight and friction reductions, though it lacks performance-enhancing technology such as direct injection, variable valve timing and turbocharging.
