Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

As a company car proposition, the Suzuki Across stacks up well; its low emissions bring low tax bills, and its very good all-electric range and punchy performance sweeten the deal. But an extremely high list price narrows its appeal among private buyers; cheaper alternatives are better to drive, more comfortable, and nicer inside.

PROS
Low official CO2 emissions
Punchy performance
Long electric-only range

CONS
Very expensive
Poor infotainment system
Rivals are better to drive
