Forget the old SX4: today’s Suzuki SX4 S-Cross is a very different car. With a choice of petrol and diesel engines, and two- and four-wheel- drive models, the S-Cross is a serious rival for the Nissan Qashqai, which won our Tow Car Awards in 2014, and the Škoda Yeti.

The diesel four-wheel-drive model is the most obvious tow car, and one we at Practical Caravan have enjoyed on long-term test. In range-topping SZ5 spec, it comes with lots of kit as standard for a price of £23,799.

Despite the extra weight of the Allgrip 4×4 drivetrain, the Suzuki is still relatively light. That’s good news for fuel economy, but not for matching it to a mid-sized caravan. So the question is, what tow car ability does the new SX4 S-Cross have?
