A well-built interior and sound dynamics are some good reasons to give Suzuki's S-Cross a closer look.

In recent years, Japanese carmakers such as Honda, Mazda, Nissan and Toyota have demonstrated the growing diversity of smaller car-based vehicles that offer the styling, space as well as functionality of an Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV). We call these crossbreed compact crossovers.

Suzuki was late to this party, but its all new S-Cross could be worth the wait. First unveiled at the 2012 Paris Motor Show as a concept, the production version came to life at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show.

The S-Cross has a rugged off-road stance, which is given extra appeal thanks to the attractive 17-inch alloy wheels

Designed very much with the European market in mind, the 'Made-in-Hungary' S-Cross ushers Suzuki into an era of changing demands from carbuyers.

Looking at the new S-Cross, it's safe to say Suzuki is back on form in the styling department. Firstly, it looks a lot more like an SUV than just merely a car on stilts as compared to the outgoing SX4 hatchback.


From the classy HID head lights blending into the sculptured fenders to the bold character lines leading to the back, Suzuki's design team has delivered a sophisticated look, which is contemporary and well-proportioned without being too 'edgy'.

The S-Cross may not be the most distinctive-looking crossover around, but the roof rails and skid plates play a part in giving the car some added oomph and complete a chunkier outlook.

Part credit also goes to the car's increased dimensions. Measuring 4,300mm x 1,765mm x 1,575mm (L x W x H), the S-Cross has grown longer by 165mm, wider by 10mm but lowered by 30mm as compared to its predecessor.
