Should you buy one?

Probably not. Don’t get us wrong, out of context, the Suzuki Across is a fine thing. It’s fast, spacious and easy-to-use – but you could just buy a Toyota RAV4 instead. Prices are forever changing, but broadly the Toyota is a little cheaper and comes with a longer warranty.

Then there’s the competition. The Mercedes GLB is more desirable, the Ford Kuga better to drive and the Skoda Karoq usefully cheaper.

What we like

Suzuki dealerships are often in more rural locations and tend to be smaller, family-owned businesses, making customer loyalty a real selling point. The low emissions bring with it a low Benefit-in-Kind tax rating, which helps reduce the price for company car drivers too.

What we don’t like

Broadly the Toyota RAV4 offers the same package but with better terms and warranties. There’s only one trim level to choose from. And the interior feels dated thanks to the infotainment screen. Loads of money too with unattractive finance packages to boot.
