Description[]

The Suzuki SX4 S-Cross (JY) is the 2nd generation of the subcompact crossover produced by Suzuki. First introduced in the Geneva Motor Show of 2013 and later brought to production in autumn 2013, the JY generation takes visual cues off of the 2012 Suzuki S-Cross Concept, and fully replaced the previous generation by 2015. Noticeably larger than it's predecessor and taking the shape of a more traditional SUV, the SX4 S-Cross competes with the Mitsubishi ASX, and Nissan Dualis. FWD is the standard drivetrain, with an AWD option dubbed "AllGrip" also being available.

While not available in the American and Canadian markets due to Suzuki's withdrawal, the SX4 is sold in Brazil, Mexico, India, Indonesia, and Europe. The JY generation would see a 2016 facelift including a new front end design, tail lights, alloy rims, and a new engine.

Overview[]

The Suzuki SX-4 S-Cross was added in the Coachella Update. It requires Class-D Blueprints 20 blueprints to unlock and has a starting rank of Level 4. Prior to the removal of oil changes, the Suzuki required 20 minutes to fully complete its oil change, and cost Credits 200 per change.

Despite being a subcompact crossover, the Suzuki SX-4 S-Cross is a class-D rally car. In alignment with its designation, the SX-4 has been prepped for rallying, featuring a WRC inspired body kit and spoilers, and lacks any of the plastic cladding that can be usually seen on real life versions of the S-Cross.

Performance[]

The Suzuki SX-4 S-Cross can be seen as a viable alternative to the Mitsubishi R5 in terms of performance, and is the 3rd fastest rally car in the Netflix version of the game as of January 24, 2024. While usually slower than the R5 on most tracks, the disparity between the S-Cross and R5 not significant enough so that either car has a distinct advantage over the other. The reason why the SX-4 is as competitive as the R5 is because both are very similar in terms of characteristics, their top speeds are almost identical, both feature great acceleration and nitro power, and both have sufficient, albeit not exceptional, handling and drifting capabilities. There are differences however, while the top speeds are similar, the SX-4 is slightly worse in this regard. Due to its bulkier crossover design, The SX-4's handling is heavier than the R5. The weightiness of the handling makes the Suzuki more challenging to control when pushing its limits, especially when utilizing all-in nitro while chaining drifts and picking up nitro bottles. Regardless, the SX-4 is a very capable rally car, and is a decent choice at any rank.

The S-Cross can only reach a maximum of Level 15 without requiring additional rank-up tools, at this rank, it is usually faster than the Ford Focus RS, and is arguably the best choice for Coachella Valley at this rank for the class. Compared to the Focus RS, the acceleration of the SX-4 is much better, while still having a competitive top speed at this rank. Despite this, the SX-4 can be outclassed by the Chevrolet C10, Polaris RZR XP 1000 EPS and sometimes the Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD Monster as their archetypes can be more advantageous on certain tracks.

At the maximum level, the SX-4 transforms into a competitive side-grade to the R5, at this rank, the SX-4 has a lackluster drift radius, and is more sluggish when making quick maneuvers and chaining drifts. The acceleration and top speed is very competitive however, being mostly in line with the R5's strong acceleration. The strongest quality of the SX-4 is it's strong nitro, and potent drift boosting power. This allows the S-Cross to make up for its sluggish handling by being able to propel out of sharp corners and reach top speed rapidly, although the Mini All4Racing X-Raid's monstrous nitro power completely overshadows it. In the Netflix Version, the X-Raid's temporary removal from the car list makes the S-Cross rival the R5 as the 2nd fastest rally car in the game, barely being behind the R5 and the Focus RS. It is therefore that any rally car of these top 3 can be used as they are all well balanced with each other's performances.

* when using the Land Rover Defender as 100 % benchmark

Given a high speed modifier for a rally car, the Suzuki SX-4 S-Cross' top speed is in line with the top rally cars in the game despite the relatively low displayed top speed. The all in top speed in particular is less than 1 mph slower than the Mitsubishi R5, and while it is noticeably lower than the Ford Focus RS' all in top speed, the strong acceleration and nitro power shared between the R5 and the SX-4 helps lessen the gap in performance between the 3.

While both the R5 and SX-4 share the same long nitro acceleration of 5.7 seconds to top speed, the SX-4 slightly lags behind in all-in nitro power, reaching max speed at around 5.0 seconds, whereas the R5 is 4.8 seconds at 30fps. The disparity in top speed and acceleration rarely plays a factor however, as both are within the same pace as each other, both being great rivals against one another. It is no surprise then that much like how the R5 is a very viable choice for multiplayer, the SX-4 can also be a great all-round choice for competitive multiplayer racing provided that the driver can tolerate and control the worse handling characteristics.


Boosters[]

Requiring Class-D Blueprints 22 of its own blueprints to activate, the overclock performance of the Suzuki SX-4 gives a modest boost of performance in line with the Ford Focus RS. The increase of speed and acceleration is not proportional to the improvement in handling, making the Suzuki's mediocre handling even worse, which can prove to be a problem when maneuverability is desired. The performance gain is not enough to surpass the Focus RS, but can still remain competitive much like its unboosted version.

Extra tank does not provide a benefit substantial enough to be preferable to chaining drifts and maximizing the all-in nitro speed of rally cars, and the Suzuki SX-4 is no different, it is unrecommended to use this booster as a result

Boosted wheels are very useful for rally cars at lower levels, and for cars with poor acceleration, while the SX-4 has strong acceleration, it might be worthwhile to use boosted wheels on lower ranks.

Nitro Recharger perfectly complements the driving style of rally cars, constantly using all-in nitro and extending it as much as possible usually leads to briefly running out of nitro, nitro recharger helps to greatly reduce this downtime, and if used correctly, can improve laptimes by a second or more.

Time-Limited Events[]

The Suzuki SX-4 S-Cross is mostly overshadowed by the Ford Focus RS, but is still capable of putting up competitive and respectable times that can be faster than both of them if driven well. It is also one of 2 options available for events that only feature D-Class cars in the Netflix Version, and one may find the Suzuki's more preferable than the Focus RS due to it's better acceleration.

Conclusion[]

The Suzuki SX-4 S-Cross may not be the best rally car in the game in terms of performance or its tedious difficulty of upgrading, nor is it a car necessary to fully upgrade if the player already has the R5 or Focus RS maxed. However it is by no means a worthless vehicle, in fact, it is more than capable of rivaling the best rally cars in the game apart from the Mini All4Racing X-Raid.
