Suzuki S-Cross Review, For Sale, Colours, Interior & Models in Australia

Suzuki replaced its beloved SX4 crossover with the SX4 S-Cross in late 2013.

It was bigger than the model it replaced, and had an unwieldy design, and it never recaptured the magic of its predecessor.

A major update in 2016 softened the design, and then another major overhaul in 2022 further refined what was a 10-year-old car.

The line-up currently starts at $37,490 for the S-Cross GLP 2WD (qld) and ranges through to $44,490 for the range-topping S-Cross Allgrip Prestige.

Suzuki S-Cross Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Suzuki S-Cross here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Suzuki S-Cross 2014: Should I do a major service?

    Servicing is based on time as well as kilometres, Ingrid. Fluids and rubber components are affected by the passing years, not just the passing kilometres, so if a major service is due, then the best advice is to have it carried out.

    If you want to reduce your servicing costs, the best advice might be to abandon the capped-price deal (presumably at a Suzuki dealership) and find a good, local, independent workshop that is qualified to do log book services. You might find even a major service at such a workshop will be no more expensive than a minor one at a dealership. Just because you have a capped-price servicing contract doesn’t mean you have to use that service outlet.

  • What cars are easy to get in and out of?

    It’s a common problem for us as we get older, but there are no sedans or hatches that have the sort of higher driving seat that you want. The best option would be a small SUV, such as a Holden Trax, Toyota C-HR, Ford Kuga, or Suzuki S-Cross.

  • Best SUV under $25k?

    The Trax is good value for money and stacks up well against all comers in the class. The 1.4 turbo is the best engine, and it has a conventional auto instead of a CVT that most of its rivals have. Others to look at are the Suzuki S-Cross, Ford Kuga, Nissan Qashqai, Mazda CX-5 and Subaru XV.

  • S-Cross 4x4 suitable for retired driver?

    The S-Cross is not the best compact SUV I have driven but for short-haul work it will be fine and you should get a good deal if you can still buy a 2015 model so far into 2016.

Suzuki S-Cross Accessories

For the MY23 model, the S-Cross adopts adaptive cruise control with full stop/go functionality, high beam assist and auto-on/off headlights for the first time, as well as a redesigned upper-centre console housing a updated multimedia system with wireless Apple CarPlay in either seven-inch or nine-inch (for Prestige) sizes.

These build on top of the old model’s seven airbags, electronic stability control, anti-lock brakes with electronic brake-force distribution and brake-assist, cruise control, front fog lights, keyless entry/start, seven-inch touchscreen, reverse camera, satellite navigation, wired Apple CarPlay/Android Auto compatibility, Bluetooth audio and telephony connectivity, dual-zone climate control, electric folding mirrors, rear privacy glass and 17-inch alloy wheels.

Shelling out another $3500 for the Prestige grade now scores you that nine-inch touchscreen, 360-degree view camera, leather trimmed seating, polished alloys and the debut of a panoramic sunroof.

Suzuki S-Cross Interior

Dimensionally almost everything carries over from the previous S-Cross, so it remains easy to get in thanks to big doors that open wide. There’s ample space front and rear, with sufficient headroom, legroom and shoulder width for an SUV in this class front and back, while good all-round vision is afforded by a commanding driving position and plenty of glass.

Objectively, the S-Cross’ cabin is difficult to fault.

The instrument dials are clear and simple to decipher, aided by the addition of an auxiliary digital speedo (at last). There’s no missing the camera within the newly-elevated centre touchscreen. It’s an easy stretch to the climate control buttons and there are several places to store things in or on, especially in the large-ish glove box.

However, the front passenger seat lacks a cushion height adjuster; there is no physical volume knob for the multimedia system, so users must tap or jab a screen or disturb the driver by using the steering wheel switch instead; the rear seat has no passenger-facing air vents; and the seven-inch touchscreen is laughably tiny in 2022.

Plus, the Prestige’s missing equipment as found in some similarly-priced up-spec rivals might put people off; no head-up display, heated seats, wireless charger or configurable instrumentation are just a few of them. It all feels old and not premium enough.
