IT’S not the most at­trac­tive SUV, but Suzuki’s SX-4 S-cross has a lot go­ing for it. For a start it’s rel­a­tively light, which benefits per­for­mance and han­dling. Fur­ther­more, both the 1.0 and 1.4-litre turbo petrol en­gines are solid per­form­ers, prices are keen and equipment lev­els good.

Ul­ti­mately ri­vals such as the SEAT Ateca are bet­ter, but con­sid­er­ing the Suzuki’s price ad­van­tage, it’s not as far be­hind as you might ex­pect. Price range: £16,499-£25,249 Our pick: Boost­er­jet SZ-T (£19,749) En­gine: 1.0-litre 3cyl petrol, 110bhp Trans­mis­sion: 5-spd man, front-wheel drive Top speed: 112mph Econ­omy: 56.5mpg CO2: 113g/km
