    Suzuki S-Cross Review - WEDEV-TEMPLATE1.INFO

    The S-Cross has been around since late , when it was launched in Australia to sell alongside, and then replace, the SX4. Is it enough to garner more interest from buyers in the intensely competitive small SUV segment? So much competition, so many rivals. Well, with the update , Suzuki is certainly rolling up its sleeves and having a decent crack at creating some interest. All-wheel drive has also been kicked out, leaving only two front-wheel drive models. Which means the only thing SUV-ish about this car is its raised ride height.

    Or crossover in industry lingo. Exterior styling has been given a revamp, so the S-Cross now looks formally bossy rather than droopily sad, while inside there is a new infotainment system housed in a 7. Mostly good so far, especially as the essentially box-like shape has been retained, meaning the significant storage and passenger space remains. Safety equipment in the Prestige includes seven airbags, brake assist, hill hold assist, a reversing camera and rear parking sensors.

    Sadly, there is no autonomous emergency braking. Comfort equipment includes fog lights, privacy glass, electrically folding exterior mirrors, leather covered steering wheel with audio and phone controls, the 7. There is no doubt the new drivetrain is leaps and bounds ahead of its earnest and pedestrian predecessor.

    It, boasts a broad torque curve and a versatile auto that gets snappily eager in manual mode, while staying calm when cruising. Maybe the engine lacks some fizzy character, but most of us would take the real world 6. The claim is 5. The S-Cross loses some of its gains on the road, where our lumpy, bumpy surfaces tend to challenge the capabilities of the retuned MacPherson strut front and beam axle rear suspension. Handling, on inch Continental rubber, is good enough up to the point of moderate cornering enthusiasm.

    Then the S-Cross kinda gives up the ghost and resorts to stability control intervention and understeer. Torque steer also intrudes if throttle use and steering angle are excessive. The electric assist steering manages to be light, vacant and uninspiring. But it makes up ground around town where its height, large glasshouse and Or to put it another way, split-fold the It also has such niceties as underfloor storage in the decent litre boot, small cubby holes, bins in all four doors, a big open container and centre lidded bin up front, a glove box, single seatback pocket and sunglasses holder.

    Up front, the driver can get comfortable with the help of a reach and rake adjustable steering wheel and sizeable and supportive seating. Analogue instrumentation is legible, and dashboard presentation and materials quality of the Hungarian-built car are workmanlike. There are some detail irritations. You can pull the gear shifter straight back into manual mode without realising it, then drive off down the road and wonder why the car is stuck in first gear revving its head off.

    It would also be nice to have the set speed of the cruise control indicated in the dash. There is also an underlying sense of lightness — not flimsiness — to this car. The doors ding rather than thunk shut.

    And the Mazda is a shorter, narrower car. But it is also unlikely that will trigger some sort of seminal moment among new car buyers that will fundamentally boost its popularity. There are simply too many quality rivals out there.
