Should I buy a Suzuki S-Cross?

I have an old Ford Focus and I'm looking for new/used car. I am considering a newer Focus or Suzuki S-Cross, could you advise me if the S-Cross is a good buy compared to the Focus? It has to be automatic because of disability.

SUVs like the S-Cross are increasingly popular compared to conventional family hatchbacks like the Focus. Buyers like the feeling of safety provided by the higher seating position and the easy access (you slide into the driver's seat compared to down into it). The S-Cross is likely to be a very reliable choice that offers reasonable value for money. It might be worth looking at alternatives like the Skoda Karoq, Hyundai Tucson or Kia Sportage. The latest versions of the Hyundai and Kia are very impressive cars, rated for their reliability and offered with hybrid engines for low running costs.
