The SX4 S-Cross is Suzuki’s attempt to capitalise on the increasingly popular small SUV class. It sits at the lower end of the sector in terms of price but it manages to offer a slightly higher ride height than some rivals, a huge boot and lots of standard equipment. For a small SUV, it’s also good 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, the S-Cross needs to stand out because it has tough competition in the forms of the Vauxhall Mokka, Skoda Yeti and Nissan Qashqai. There are three engines to choose from: a turbocharged 1.0-litre, a larger turbocharged 1.4-litre - seen previously in the Baleno and Vitara S - and a 1.6-litre turbodiesel. Both petrol engines are available with either a manual or an automatic gearbox, whereas the diesel is only available with the latter - 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.

We’d recommend opting for the SZ-T trim, as it gets the integrated sat-nav and media system, as well as automatic air-con, keyless entry, 17in alloy wheels and a rear parking camera. These upgrades...View trim
