Parkers overall rating: 3 out of 5 3.0

The SX4 saloon hasn't itself been crash tested by Euro NCAP but the hatchback was and scored four stars out of the maximum five, which is decent score for a small car like this. All models come with driver, passenger, side and curtain airbags - an impressive tally for a car of this price - plus Isofix child seat mounting points, side impact protection beams, deadlocks and an engine immobiliser.

Unlike the standard SX4 hatch, the saloon isn't available with four-wheel-drive but it features the same practical and well-built cabin. There are large pockets on all four doors complete with bottle holders while the rear seats split and fold 60/40 allowing you to transport larger loads. The boot itself is large with 515 litres of luggage space - that's almost double the size of the SX4 hatch and actually more than an Audi A4.

The boot does have quite a pronounced load lip though, which is fairly high off the ground and although the boot opening is wide, it's not very tall, so you could struggle with boxy items.
