How much does the Suzuki Sx4 S Cross cost to run?

The 1.6L diesel is the most economical Suzuki Sx4 S Cross to run, taking into account insurance, tax and fuel efficiency.

The Suzuki Sx4 S Cross 1.6L diesel costs £20.00 a year to tax, as it sits in tax band B.

It does just over 67 MPG on average, which means it will cost £9.00* in diesel every 100 miles driven.

In terms of fuel efficiency, it sits between the Citroen C4 Cactus 1.6L diesel and the more thirsty Citroen DS4 1.6L diesel.

The lower the insurance group, the cheaper a car should be to insure. This model is rated insurance group 19, which is lower than the Citroen C4 Cactus 1.5L diesel, but higher than the Kia Soul 1.6L diesel. (If insurance cost is important to you then the Citroen C3 Aircross has the lowest insurance group.)

Suzuki Sx4 S Cross: How big is the boot?

The Suzuki Sx4 S Cross has an above average boot space (430 litres of luggage with the seats up).

This would allow one pushchair and 2 large bags. Alternatively you could load up with 3 large bags or 3 cabin bags instead.

Worth knowing, the Renault Kadjar hatchback is the best in class, allowing for one pushchair and 4 large bags with its 647 litres.

Is the Suzuki Sx4 S Cross easy to park?

While not the absolute narrowest car (that is the Citroen C4 Cactus), this is in the top third for ease of parking in car parks. Given a typical supermarket space, it will fill three quarters of the space.

If you don’t park in the street that much, then the Sx4 S Cross is fine. It will go in to an average street slot, giving you a gap of 500mm to swing in and out. But if you street park a lot you may want to look at the Dacia Sandero Stepway.

Which Suzuki Sx4 S Cross has the best performance?

The fastest Suzuki Sx4 S Cross from 0-60, is the 1.4L petrol (if you’re a petrol head, it has 220 lbs/ft torque and 140 bhp). It hits 60 mph in 10.2 seconds.

The closest rival in its class is the BMW X1 2.0L diesel, which will beat your Suzuki Sx4 S Cross to 60 by 0.1 seconds. That’s a big gap in Formula 1, but not something you would notice in your commute to work.

What size caravan or trailer, can the Suzuki Sx4 S Cross tow?

If you are towing you want good torque to pull away easily despite the extra weight, and the car needs to be at least 15% heavier than the caravan to keep you stable at speed.

The model that can tow the biggest caravan or heaviest trailer is the Suzuki Sx4 S Cross 1.6L diesel which has 320 lbs/ft torque. It should be able to tow a braked caravan or trailer that weighs up to 1500kg comfortably.

You must check your car handbook – maximum towing weights vary considerably with different engine and gearbox combinations.
