Exterior : The Looks are Subjective, I liked the Exterior of the S Cross. The Ground Clearance is good and the car is well built
Interior (Features, Space & Comfort) : Its a Spacious cabin and comes with Abondant features. The seating is very comfortable front and Rear. All black gives the car a Sporty Look. The ACC does an Amazing job.
Engine Performance, Fuel Economy and Gearbox :
The S Cross comes with Fiat Engine and Mine is a 1.3 Zeta Version. Not the Fatest in the Segment but Still pick up is decent and driving in City and Highway is a Breeze. The Engine Noise is Heard inside the Cabin, not expected in a 12Lakh car. The Gear Box is smooth and the fluid . The FE is a pretty decent too. got 24KMPL in Highways and 17-19 in City driving.
The outside noise can be heard inside the cabin, a change of Tyres should fix this, but still the engine noise is heard and its annoying sometimes.
Ride Quality & Handling
S Cross has a very good Handling and Ride Quality. Its better then my Previous Hyundai i20 in terms of handling and Driving comfort. With the Height adjustable seats and Steering, its easy for any one to find their sweet spot. The Vechile is stable even at high speeds ( 150 top speed, tested) .
A great car from the stable of Suzuki, if you are looking for a car with good ride quality and good built with a fantastic service support this should be the car for you. There is a compromise on some aspects like the engine noise felt inside the cabin and quality of materials used for interiors. But said that its an overall a Value for Money Car from Suzuki.
Areas of improvement
Definitely the Isolation inside the cabin has to be improved, road noise and engine Noise are heard.
Why is Suzuki sticking on with such a Tyre ( JK Elanzo) the road noise is annoying.
