60sec road test

The SX4 S-Cross was benchmarked against the Nissan Qashqai. A sensible decision given the Nissan’s runaway sales success. Problem is, it was benchmarked against the old Qashqai, and as a result the S-Cross already feels dated at launch. Particularly inside; the cabin is grey, plasticky and unappealing. It drives well enough though, with stable handling and a decently punchy diesel engine. Although four-wheel drive is an option we doubt many SX4 owners will be attempting any off-roading. May as well save some pennies and pick a front-drive model. A decent enough car, but one that’s difficult to recommend over fresher-feeling rivals.
