Suzuki has made pricing for the Across very simple, given there is one trim level only and it includes pretty much everything. Usefully the bottom line price undercuts that of its Toyota equivalent by a fraction, though whether that plays out on the monthly finance costs will depend on the deals available. In purchase price and cost per mile comparisons the Across also looks a little more expensive, especially against plug-in versions of rivals like the Volvo XC40
, Peugeot 3008
and Vauxhall Grandland X
In terms of running costs plug-in hybrids
are very dependent on your circumstances and how you use them. Compared with the regular non-PHEV RAV4 the Across is a lot more expensive but the Benefit In Kind
savings for company drivers
could make it a lot cheaper overall for your monthly budget. The 40-plus miles the Across can cover on pure electric power is more than many rivals and means you could run it as a daily without ever going near a petrol pump, saving you money if you can charge it at home
from a wallbox using cheap overnight electricity tariffs. We saw close to 50mpg on a long journey once the battery was depleted, which is also pretty good and better than most rivals we’ve driven in similar situations.
