Pricing is quite a bit higher than it used to be for the S-Cross, sitting primarily in the £21,000-£28,000 bracket. That's partly because going forward, Suzuki doesn't plan to offer smaller, more affordable engines than this 1.4 Boosterjet Hybrid unit in our market. Partly it's because the car these days features a higher standard of spec (Adaptive Cruise Control on all models for instance). And partly it's reflective of the cost of the extra mild hybrid technology.
There are three trim levels, 'SZ4', SZ-T' and 'SZ5'. Even base 'SZ4' trim gives you LED projector headlights, dual-zone auto air conditioning, auto headlamps and wipers, 16-inch alloy wheels, front and rear electric windows, heated door mirrors, seven airbags and 'Radar Brake Support' autonomous braking. Move up to 'SZ-T'-spec and you also get navigation, 17-inch polished alloy wheels, silver roof rails, skid plates, rear privacy glass, keyless entry and white-stitched upholstery. The top 'SZ5' trim level you have to have if you want the option of ALLGRIP 4WD gives you a panoramic twin-panel sunroof, heated front seats and leather upholstery. Across the range, there's a choice of six different paint shades, five of which are metallic finishes. There's no longer an automatic gearbox option.
