S Cross

Wrapup

 It has got fantastic ride and handling, but the looks & NVH need improvement. The 1.6 offers strong performance where as the 1.3 feels under-powered for its price. The cabin is spacious, has good standard safety kit but the 1.3 doesn't justify its price tag.

Quick Review

S Cross began its voyage as an extension or rather a size down of the popular SX4 sedan. Gradually as the SX4 phased out, design team at Suzuki started work to revamp the S Cross earlier known as the SX4 Cross and came up with something that is quite distinct. This mini SUV crossover entered Indian shores in 2015 under Maruti Suzuki’s newly launched premium dealer network NEXA. Instead of opting for an aggressive and commanding SUV stance, this mini SUV seems to be more tamed and docile on the the outside. But, with an elegant design S Cross does possess a unique identity. The waved twin chrome slat grille which houses the Suzuki logo at the centre, all in chrome, gives a nice premium feel. The raised bonnet creases on the corners highlights its SUV stance while the use of skid plates on to the front bumper proves to be a decent attempt from Suzuki to add that SUV ruggedness. To further enhance its SUV appeal, side cladding runs all along the exteriors from the front bumper to the wheel arches and onto the back as well. The only major resemblance to its predecessor can be seen on the headlamps but they now endorse auto HID projector lamps which completes its urban look. On the side, the S Cross appears more like a premium hatch rather than a mini SUV, however Suzuki seems to have tried too hard in dressing up the S Cross with SUV accessories. The skid plates can be seen on to the side skirts as well wrapped on to the side cladding. As an effort to increase height and aesthetic value, roof rails are also a part of the exteriors. What really disappoints are the mundane looking alloy wheels, which could have given a huge boost to its SUV charm, despite being 16 inches in size, if designed better. Step onto the rear and the sweptback tail lights does grab attention. With quite the mini SUV look, reflectors on the rear bumper along with rear skid plates and body cladding looks quite good on to the back. Overall, the S Cross stands as a mild compact SUV crossover with the percentage of hatchback DNA in dominance rather than of an SUV.
