AT A GLANCE
WHAT IT’S GOT
Standard satnav, front and rear parking sensors, reversing camera, all-wheel drive with settings for different conditions, leather and suede interior.
WHAT IT HASN’T
Automated emergency braking, blind spot monitoring, softtouch plastics. Two-wheel-drive option. Engine lacks power.
Suzuki has a good reputation for quality and reliability but the warranty is only average. Servicing is also quite expensive for its class (capped servicing is available for five years) but you get six services in the three years.
WHAT WE LIKED
Generous equipment list. Infotainment easy to use. Seats comfortable and supportive. Decent cargo area, 12V plugs.
WHAT WE DIDN’T
Ride gets skittish over corrugations. Engine needs more power. Hard plastic surfaces throughout cabin.
ALSO CONSIDER RENAULT CAPTUR DYNAMIQUE $27,990
Cheaper, with five-year warranty. Has same funky styling. Corners well but engine lacks power.
JEEP RENEGADE LONGITUDE $34,500
More expensive but bigger, more powerful engine and well-finished cabin.
MAZDA CX-3 TOURING SAFETY $30,020
Small boot but classy cabin, good road manners and extra safety equipment.
