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

PROS
Smooth and powerful drive
Great electric range and CO2
Practical and high-quality interior

CONS
Very expensive
Ride is a touch firm
Shorter warranty than Toyota

For its second year on the market, the Encore GX receives only a few small updates. Both SiriusXM satellite radio and wireless connectivity for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto have become standard features across the lineup, and adaptive cruise control is now available on the Preferred model as part of the optional Safety package.

Pros
Attractive exterior design,
SUV practicality,
good value compared to luxury-branded rivals.

Cons
Too many plasticky interior parts,
inadequate three-cylinder powertrains,
unexciting to drive.

Comfortable ride quality
Desirable infotainment and driving assistance tech is standard
Lots of space for passengers and cargo

Cons
Front seats are narrow and don't fit a variety of body types
Thick roof pillars reduce rear visibility
Ho-hum handling
