  • Suzuki SX4 S-Cross 1.6 DDiS Automatic.

    Suzuki’s SX4 S-Cross has been around for a couple of years and has earned a quiet following for blending a practical interior with a certain amount of driving flair, all at a reasonable price. What it’s never had, and no Suzuki for the last 22 years has had, is an automatic gearbox allied with a diesel engine, or at least a proper one rather than a continuously variable transmission. This combination accounts for 16 per cent of sales in the compact SUV market, so Suzuki is keen to tap in to that extra revenue stream by launching an automatic gearbox option for the existing diesel engine. The gearbox uses a twin-clutch setup to engage odd or even gears in advance, depending on whether the driver is accelerating or braking, ensuring a smooth and instantaneous shift of the next required gear. In use it operates exactly as you would expect an automatic gearbox to work, although it’s technically an automated manual system - hydraulics control the clutch and gearshift in the background, leaving you with nothing to do but play with the steering wheel mounted paddles, should you wish to take over control yourself. Systems of this nature are often a tad rough, but Suzuki’s version is remarkably smooth. Each gear is selected without fuss, and there’s no clunking through the system as the clutch is engaged. It’s not notably quick, despite the claims of instant shifting, but the short pause between ratios would only be a problem if this SUV was a more sporting proposition. Not that the S-Cross can’t handle bends. It can, and probably better than you have any right to expect, but it’s never particularly involving or rewarding. Allgrip four-wheel-drive is standard on this edition, with the electronic gadgetry splitting the power between each wheel, and allowing you to get further in tricky conditions than a conventional two-wheel-drive SUV will allow you. Driving to the top of Ben Nevis might be beyond it, due to ground clearance issues, but you’ll certainly make it home when the snow starts falling. The extra weight of the gearbox hits economy slightly, with a meagre 1.4mpg drop compared to the manual version, but the end result is a still an impressive 62.8mpg on the combined cycle. And that doesn’t appear to be an entirely unrealistic figure either, with 50+mpg in normal use being easily achievable while on test. There’s no extra weight on the inside, with disappointingly lightweight plastics making up the bland, but inoffensive dashboard. And with a long list of standard equipment included within the price, there’s not a shortage of space for the driver to enjoy all of the functions. The S-Cross feels light and airy inside, at least up front, but it gets a bit tighter for headroom in the rear. The boot is class competitive, swallowing exactly the same 430 litres of luggage as Nissan’s Qashqai, and is similarly comparable to SsangYong’s new Tivoli. The SX4 S-Cross comes loaded with equipment, offers excellent real-world economy and has the extra traction and reassurance afforded by four-wheeldrive. It might not be the most exciting model in the segment, or even the class leader, but it offers excellent value for money in a generally pleasing package.
  • Moto 3 Team Launch.

    It’s no secret any longer that Peugeot Scooters, post their partnership with Mahindra and with the active involvement of Mahindra Racing, will be joining the 2016 Moto3 grid. The team was formally launched at EICMA 2015 with the 28-year-old Frenchman Alexis Masbou and 21-year-old Scotsman John McPhee announced as the two riders who will lead the French charge on the Moto3 racing grid. The team, officially known as Peugeot Saxo Print Racing Team, will be managed by Terell B Thien.
  • JEEP news.

    A new special edition of the Jeep Cherokee has been unveiled, with the Night Eagle edition limited to just 350 examples in the UK. Powered by the 197bhp 2.2-litre MultiJet II engine, it is paired to Jeep’s Active Drive I four-wheeldrive system, a nine-speed automatic transmission, and costs Ј36,795 - exactly the same as the flagship Limited model with the same drivetrain combination. The Cherokee Night Eagle is based on upon the mid-range Longitude Plus model, however, and features leather upholstery, heated front seats, an 8.4-inch touchscreen navigation system, Bluetooth mobile phone connectivity and ninespeaker audio system with subwoofer. On the outside there’s satin grey elements on the Jeep badge mounted on the front grille, gloss black 18-inch alloy wheels, rear privacy glass and black gloss roof bars, as well as the Night Eagle model badging. Available in a choice of four colours - black, white, silver and grey - the Cherokee Night Eagle can be ordered at Jeep dealers now.
