The third-generation Suzuki S-Cross SUV has been revealed. It’ll be available to order in the UK from January 2022 priced from just £24,999 for the Motion trim level and £29,799 for the Ultra trim level.
There’s plenty of standard safety equipment, including front and rear parking sensors, a parking camera and driver-assistance technology such as lane-keep assist, traffic-sign recognition, blindspot monitoring and hill-hold assist.
The new S-Cross’s cabin layout is similar to that of the previous-generation model, with the biggest difference being a new floating infotainment system. Standard equipment for the Motion model includes heated front seats, dual-zone climate control, a 4.2-inch driver information display in the centre of the gauge cluster and a seven-inch touchscreen. It also has 17-inch alloy wheels, automatic LED headlights, aluminium roof rails and electrically folding door mirrors.
The range-topping Ultra variant gets a set of polished 17-inch alloy wheels, a sliding panoramic sunroof, a 360-degree parking camera, a nine-inch infotainment system with built-in sat-nav and leather upholstery.
Both are powered by an updated version of the turbocharged 1.4-litre four-cylinder mild-hybrid petrol engine found in the Vitara, which produces 127bhp and 235Nm of torque. That’s enough for a 0–62mph time of 9.5 seconds and a top speed of 118mph.
More importantly, the powertrain seems to be frugal. The combined WLTP fuel economy figure is 53.2mpg and CO2 emissions as low as 120g/km. It meets the Euro 6d emissions regulations, too, meaning you need not worry about the expanded ULEZ charge.
The powertrain comes with a six-speed manual gearbox as standard, although a six-speed automatic can be specified as a £1,350 option. The flagship S-Cross Ultra comes with four-wheel drive as standard, although this lowers fuel economy to 47.8mpg.
