Suzuki SX4 S-Cross range updated
Suzuki has removed the SZ4 trim from the SX4 range, in favour of the high-spec SZ-T variant
The Suzuki SX4 S-Cross range has been updated, removing the mid-spec SZ4 model in favour of a more generously equipped SZ-T version.
The SZ-T model isn’t all-new, but the addition of a CVT automatic gearbox and ALLGRIP four-wheel-drive versions adds appeal to the small crossover.
Suzuki says the SZ-T was designed specifically for company-car drivers, but has also proved popular with private buyers. The brand’s own research showed that 70 per cent of SX4 S-Cross customers chose the high-spec SZ-T or SZ5 models, so by expanding the range, it hopes to give customers a wider choice of high-spec versions.
All models, including the basic SZ3 version, have alloy wheels, cruise control, air-conditioning and tyre-pressure monitoring. The SZ-T builds on this with sat nav, a DAB digital radio, separate air-conditioning for the driver and passenger and a Bluetooth phone connection. The generous spec also includes a rear parking camera and sensors, silver roof rails and tinted rear windows.
Prices for the Suzuki S-Cross SZ-T start from £17,999 for the 1.6-litre petrol engine and manual gearbox. Adding the new CVT automatic gearbox bumps the price up to £19,349, but slightly improves fuel economy and reduces CO2 emissions to 125g/km.
Need four-wheel-drive grip for the coming winter months? No problem. The SZ-T model is also now available with ALLGRIP all-wheel drive, with prices for the manual model starting at £19,799. If you want a CVT automatic gearbox, you’ll have to choose SZ5 trim, which costs £22,949. There’s currently no diesel automatic model, though you can get a manual SZ-T diesel with four-wheel drive. This ALLGRIP model costs £21,299.
