Used Suzuki Across for sale
The Suzuki Across is an SUV that comes with sporty exterior styling and an intelligent hybrid powertrain. Sitting at the top of the Suzuki range, the Across costs significantly more than other Suzuki models such as the S-Cross and Swace, but it does come with more advanced technology and a contemporary interior.
In a highly competitive SUV class, cars must stand out from one another in order to catch the eyes of potential buyers. Reasons to consider the Across include:
- Impressive all-electric driving mode range
- Four-wheel drive as standard
- Bundles of safety equipment
- Spacious cabin
- Decent amount of boot space
Engines and Driving Experience
Suzuki often implement simple engine line-ups within their vehicles and the Across is no different. You'll only have one powertrain to choose from; a 2.5-litre plug-in hybrid (PHEV) that produces a total power output of an eyebrow-raising 302bhp. This allows the car to go from 0 to 62mph in as little as 6 seconds.
Being a PHEV, the Across has the ability to drive using pure electric power. Therefore, you'll be able to travel up to 46 miles with zero emissions, which is enough for the daily commute or a week's worth of school runs for most. You'll also be able to achieve up to 282.4mpg with the battery fully charged. Four-wheel drive as standard means the Across is capable off-road too.
The Across possesses light and responsive steering, but it's not the most engaging SUV to drive. It's fairly comfortable though and can soak up most imperfections fairly well, but it won't worry some rivals when it comes to overall comfort.
Practicality and Running Costs
Space in the cabin is good, with plenty of head and legroom being provided. Three adults should be able to comfortably travel in the rear and there's plenty of storage compartments and cubby holes for loose items. You'll also be able to easily fit child seats to the ISOFIX mounting points in the rear thanks to wide-opening doors.
Offering 490 litres, the boot is fairly well-sized and is enough for a few larger bags of luggage. Dropping the rear seats will increase overall carrying capacity to 1,168 litres for the times where you need the extra room. Loading larger and heavier items is also made easier due to a remote-controlled tailgate and no boot lip to get in the way.
Due to the Across' powerful powertrain, running costs will be towards the higher end of the scale - it resides within insurance group 43 out of 50. All Evans Halshaw dealerships are well-equipped to take care of any servicing or maintenance requirements.
Interior, Technology and Safety
The interior is very well constructed and comes with durable and robust materials. It doesn't have quite as many luxury touches as some rivals, but overall quality is good and you'll get leather upholstery as standard.
From new, there wasn't a lot of optional equipment which is good news for used car buyers as all of the advanced technology comes as standard. This includes keyless entry and start, a 9-inch multimedia touchscreen with Apple CarPlay/Android Auto and a heated steering wheel.
Whilst the Across hasn't been independently tested, the Toyota RAV-4 (the car the Across is based on) was awarded with a full five-star safety rating by Euro NCAP, so hypothetically the Across should score similarly. Across safety equipment includes:
- Dynamic radar cruise control with full-speed range
- Blind spot monitor
- Road Sign Assist (RSA)
- Rear parking camera
- Front & rear parking distance sensors
Is the Suzuki Across right for me?
The Suzuki Across is a good choice if you're looking for an SUV that has sporty exterior styling and a good list of standard equipment. The economical plug-in hybrid powertrain means running costs are reduced, especially when capitalising on the Across' impressive all-electric driving mode range of up to 46 miles.
However, at this price point the Across is starting to tread on the toes of premium SUVs such as the BMW X5 and Range Rover Velar. Alternatives such as the Volvo XC60 and Audi Q5 can also be had for this kind of money, so it's worth checking out the competition before deciding if the Across is right for you.
