The new Suzuki SX4 S-Cross has scored five stars in the latest Euro NCAP tests.
The SX4 S-Cross scored 92% Adult Occupant, 80% Child Occupant, 72% Pedestrian and 81% Safety Assist. Which compares to the more expensive (both considered by Euro NCAP as small family cars) Mercedes Benz CLA-Class which scored 91% Adult Occupant, 75% Child Occupant, 74% Pedestrian and 81% Safety Assist.
The SX4 S-Cross features Suzuki’s Total Effective Control Technology (TECT) concept for occupant-protecting impact absorption and low weight. The use of high tensile steel for key parts helps to keep the body light and enhances the vehicle's crashworthiness substantially.
Standard safety equipment includes a speed limiter, which prevents the car from exceeding a speed set by the driver. There is ESP which reduces the risk of skidding and a seatbelt reminder for all seats. Passive safety equipment on the SX4 S-Cross includes seven airbags, which offer protection in the event of frontal, lateral or rear impact; seatbelt pre-tensioners and force limiters.
The Suzuki SX4 S-Cross prices start at £14,999 - and it is also available on the Motability scheme with advanced payments from £399 including a CVT gearbox.Published 23 October 2013
