Suzuki SX4 S-Cross gets the maximum 5-Star rating from Euro NCAP crash tests

Article by Christian Andrei, on October 26, 2013

Euro NCAP gave the maximum 5-star rating to the Suzuki SX4 S-Cross, making it one of the safest cars in Europe. Suzuki’s new C-segment crossover earned an above-average overall result in this new independent crash testing. It was on pedestrian protection that the SX4 S-Cross did particularly well.

It achieved a top-class rating in total score for newly adopted test methodology that started this year. Euro NCAP gives one overall star rating with five stars being the highest.

How many stars there are show the vehicle’s performance level in all four areas -- adult protection, child safety, pedestrian protection and safety assist.

Suzuki made sure that the body structure and occupant restraint systems on the SX4 S-Cross will comply with existing and anticipated crash safety standards, providing optimal protection in real life situations.

The new SX4 S-Cross uses Suzuki’s Total Effective Control Technology (TECT) concept to achieve low weight and impact absorption that protects the occupants. Its key parts use high tensile steel extensively, helping to minimize the weight and significantly boost its crashworthiness.

The body of the new SX4 S-Cross has a big proportion of high-tensile steel for strength and lightness.

It offers greater handling stability from its stiff mountings of the front struts and suspension frame. The car has a high-rigidity body that’s essential to handling, comfort, safety, NVH performance, among other aspects. Suzuki has synchronized active and passive systems on the new SX4 S-Cross to guarantee the highest level of safety.
