Suzuki SX4 S-Cross buying guide

SX4 S-Cross models come with several different engine and trim choices. Keep reading to learn more about each so you can choose the best version for you.

What Suzuki SX4 S-Cross trim levels are there?

Suzuki’s trim levels are fairly simple, with the pre-2022 range opening with the SZ4 model. This version gets alloy wheels, air conditioning, cruise control, and a basic infotainment system with Bluetooth and DAB digital radio.

Mid-range SZ-T cars gain sat nav and a rear parking camera for the infotainment system, along with front and rear parking sensors, auto LED headlights, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, larger alloy wheels, climate control, a leather steering wheel, keyless entry and start, and auto wipers.

At the top of the range, SZ5 models include leather upholstery, heated front seats, a panoramic sunroof, automatic emergency braking and adaptive cruise control.

Suzuki SX4 S-Cross interior and technology

Suzuki’s focus is often on form over function considering it sits at the more affordable end of the market. Nevertheless, the SX4 S-Cross’s cabin is an easy place to spend time with a simple, intuitive dashboard and robust build quality that’ll stand up to the rigours of family life.

The infotainment system scores well for simplicity, with straightforward menus and clean, minimal graphics. You do, however, have to dock points for the lack of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto in pre-2022 models – although mid-range SZ-T cars and up include a built-in sat nav. The latest 2022-and-newer SX4 S-Cross includes both Apple and Android interfacing as standard, however.

Adults can sit comfortably in both the front and rear of the SX4 S-Cross, although the panoramic sunroof on range-topping cars can limit headroom for particularly tall rear passengers. Rear legroom isn’t exactly generous, but it’s plenty for day-to-day use and handily outstrips every small hatchback that sells at a similar price point.

Suzuki SX4 S-Cross engine range explained

Suzuki SX4 S-Cross 1.0 Boosterjet petrol

Entry-level versions of the SX4 S-Cross use a 1.0-litre three-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine. This makes 111hp, which gives this version an 11-second 0-62mph time – that’s plenty for city speeds, but might feel a little strained during faster motorway overtakes. This engine get the option of either a six-speed manual or a six-speed auto, with the manual also gaining the option of all-wheel drive.

Suzuki SX4 S-Cross 1.4 Boosterjet Allgrip petrol

The SX4 S-Cross’s more powerful engine option is a 1.4-litre four-cylinder turbo petrol engine. Power jumps to 140hp, shaving a full second off the 0-62mph time, helping this version feel more relaxed at higher speeds. All 1.4 models include all-wheel drive as standard and can optionally be equipped with a six-speed automatic gearbox.

From 2021, 1.4-litre SX4 S-Cross models gained a 48V mild-hybrid system. Fuel economy and emissions are fractionally improved and, while power actually drops by 11hp, the extra torque drops the 0-62mph time to 9.5 seconds. This is the only engine currently offered on 2022-and-newer models.

Your Suzuki SX4 S-Cross questions answered

You’ll find just one version of the Suzuki SX4 S-Cross – a five-door SUV with a hatchback boot opening. Within Suzuki’s lineup, the SX4 S-Cross is slightly larger than the Vitara SUV and slightly smaller than the Across.

If you’re shopping for an SX4 S-Cross, you might want to check out some similarly sized alternatives including the Fiat 500XCitroen C4Peugeot 2008Kia NiroVolkswagen T-Roc or the Skoda Kamiq.

A new S-Cross model was launched in the UK in 2022 and will gradually become more common on the nearly new marketplace. It features all-new styling, refreshed engines and an updated equipment list. The new S-Cross looks like a more traditional SUV with a boxier body, whereas the outgoing version sits somewhere between an SUV and an MPV with a distinctive moustache-like front grille.

The SX4 S-Cross measures in at 4.3 metres long. That makes it a little longer than the Volkswagen T-Roc, Skoda Kamiq and Fiat 500X, and exactly the same length as a Peugeot 2008. As a result, despite the SUV body style, the SX4 S-Cross isn’t too hard to live with in the city, plus SZ-T models and up include front and rear parking sensors.

In the cabin, the SX4 S-Cross offers more interior space than many similarly priced small hatchbacks, so it might make a better choice if you’re a family buyer. Compared to other family SUVs, the SX4 scores somewhere in the middle of the class, with enough room for adults in every seat, although sitting three across the rear will put elbow room at a premium.

The SX4 S-Cross’s engine range is also fairly simple, with a choice of just two petrol units. Neither offers scintillating performance but you do have the option to add all-wheel drive and an automatic gearbox for a more relaxed all-season driving experience.

Four-wheel drive was available on certain versions of the Suzuki SX4 S-Cross. If you need four-wheel drive, perhaps if you live in a rural area that gets harsh winter weather, look out for SX4s with the AllGrip badge – or search our four-wheel drive SX4 S-Cross cars for sale here. However, it's also worth considering the two-wheel-drive SX4 and opting for a set of winter tyres for colder weather.

It's always hard to predict how reliable a car is – especially a used car – but the Suzuki SX4 S-Cross feels well built and should be reliable. We found a few examples for sale with over 120,000 miles on the clock, which bodes well for long-term dependability.
