Driven: Suzuki SX4 S-Cross Hybrid AllGrip Is Your No-Frills Family-Friendly SUV


Suzuki might not be present in the US, but in Europe and Asia it maintains a wide range of products focused on city cars and SUVs. The SX4 S-Cross is an important part of the SUV lineup, so we wanted to test the recently revealed third-generation model to see how much it has improved over its predecessor, and how well it stacks up against the fierce competition.

Measuring 4,300 mm (169.3 inches) long, it is well into the B-SUV segment, since it is smaller than all C-SUVs.
