2022 Suzuki S-Cross priced from £24,999

Published 25 November 2021

A new Suzuki S-Cross will go on sale in January 2022 with prices starting from £24,999.

Set to rival the latest Nissan Qashqai, Kia Sportage and Vauxhall Mokka, the 2022 Suzuki S-Cross will be offered with mild-hybrid power, a choice of manual and automatic gearboxes, as well as two- or four-wheel drive.

Arriving in showrooms around Christmas, the new Suzuki S-Cross will be offered in just two trim levels: Motion and Ultra. The entry-level Suzuki S-Cross Motion is priced from £24,999 and comes equipped with 17-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights, heated front seats, front/rear parking sensors and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto. Standard driver-assist features include Traffic Sign Recognition, Blind Spot Monitor and Adaptive Cruise Control with speed limiter.

Priced from £29,799, the top-spec Suzuki S-Cross Ultra adds 17-inch polished alloy wheels, leather seats, navigation, a panoramic sliding sunroof and a 360-degree camera. Significantly, the S-Cross Ultra also comes with four-wheel drive as standard.

Power comes from Suzuki's 1.4-litre Boosterjet petrol engine paired with 48-volt mild-hybrid technology. Although not a full hybrid system like the Hyundai Tucson (or a plug-in hybrid like the Toyota RAV4-based Suzuki Across), the brand says its lightweight system can provide a minor boost in power as well as improving economy. A two-wheel-drive Suzuki S-Cross manual officially returns up to 53.2mpg in WLTP fuel economy tests.

A full hybrid model (a 'strong' hybrid in Suzuki terminology) is due to arrive later in 2022, although the technology will first make its debut on the smaller Suzuki Vitara.

While two thirds of buyers are expected to stick to the front-wheel-drive model, Suzuki's 4x4s do have a reputation for being more capable in challenging conditions than mainstream competitors. The Suzuki S-Cross Ultra's Allgrip four-wheel drive system gives the driver the ability to select between four different modes: auto, sport, snow and lock. The latter will lock the limited-slip differential and help the driver extract the car from snow, mud or sand.

Both Suzuki S-Cross models are available with a choice of manual or automatic gearbox, with the latter costing an extra £1350 over the manual. The only other option available is metallic paint, which'll cost £550.

Suzuki says the new S-Cross is more practical than its predecessor, although its external dimensions have remained the same. That means it's smaller than many of its competitors, while its boot can carry up to 430 litres of luggage. There's a false boot floor, too, should you need to hide away any possessions.

Although PCP prices are yet to be confirmed, Suzuki says it'll be able to provide indicative monthly prices from December, ahead of the S-Cross officially arriving on sale in January 2022.

Are they using some of Toyota's design details?
Those wheel arch mouldings shape remind me of a RAV4.

Definately a Toyota influence here . I see a lot of similarities with the new Toyota Corolla Cross which may get in the UK eventually .

I loved my original S-Cross Allgrip but sadly Suzuki customer service UK was incredibly unhelpful when the panoramic sunroof developed a serious problem and for that reason I will not consider buying another Suzuki. Currently the very happy owner of a Kia Sportage!!
