In their latest series of tests, EuroNCAP recently crashed a number of brand-new cars in order to determine how safe, or not, they are in real-life accidents. These tests still matter, because contrary to public’s belief, not all new cars are as safe as they should be.
The latest crash test resulted in a number of cars getting the full 5-star safety rating, and among them was the Suzuki SX4 S-Cross. This is another feather in the little Suzu’s cap; a brilliant car with good quality, versatility, and now safety, that may get overlooked by many just because it doesn’t look very interesting.
The SX-4 Crossover features advanced body structure and occupant restraint systems and Suzuki’s Total Effective Control Technology (TECT) concept for occupant-protecting impact absorption and low weight. That is in addition to the active safety equipment like speed limiter, ESP, and seatbelt reminder for all seats, and passive safety gear such as seatbelt pre-tensioners and force limiters and active headrests.
Suzuki SX4 S-Cross is not very good for running people over because its bonnet shape and new structures for the cowl top, wipers and bumpers provide impact absorption which lessens the degree of harm. So if you work in a mob or something, this is not the car for you.
The SX4 S-Cross is on sale in the UK now from £14,999.
