Introduction

In a peculiar turn of world trends, the SUV market, which was once declared a declining segment due to rising fuel costs and increasingly congested cities, is in a bit of a boom again, worldwide. However, this comeback has a few differences – consumers are now looking for an SUV that looks the part but is more maneuverable and takes less to fuel than before.

Enter the S-Cross which, despite its all-wheel drive system, only weighs 1190kg, a paltry 65kg more than its front-wheel drive relative. Being based on the SX4, it is also not a hulking mass of metal that one’s mind conjures up when one thinks ‘SUV’. So is the S-Cross the modern answer to the sport utility vehicle? Let’s find out.
