Suzuki S-Cross SUV - Interior & comfort

The S-Cross comes with plenty of equipment as standard

Interior & comfort Rating

3.5 out of 5

The new car will feel familiar to current S-Cross owners because a lot of the interior parts appear to have been carried over. It looks like the steering wheel, air conditioning controls, door panels and glovebox are all reused. That’s no bad thing as we expect it has helped Suzuki sell the S-Cross for £25,000, which undercuts some rivals on a like-for-like basis.

Suzuki S-Cross dashboard

Suzuki has moved the touchscreen to sit on top of the dashboard for a modern look. Tape over the Suzuki badge on the steering wheel and you’d probably think you were in a Nissan Qashqai because the look of the interior is very similar. Besides the ‘floating’ touchscreen, you get cool metal-esque dials and an assortment of buttons.

There are some soft-touch materials, like on the armrests and the dashboard panel, although there are cheaper plastics on display too. Overall, quality isn’t up there with the SEAT Ateca; some of the materials feel a bit tinny and the doors feel rather light.

Equipment

You can choose from two trim levels. In a departure from Suzuki’s normal SZ-T and SZ-5 trim levels, they’re called Motion and Ultra. Motion acts as the entry-level model but features a generous level of standard equipment. There’s two-zone climate control, bright LED headlights, automatic headlights and wipers, heated seats, a reversing camera and keyless entry and start, among other features. The touchscreen measures seven inches across on this model, and features Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity. 

Ultra gets a nine-inch screen with the same smartphone connectivity plus sat nav. You also get two panoramic sunroofs, leather upholstery, polished alloy wheels and an all-round camera system for easy parking and the avoidance of off-road scrapes.
