Going on price alone, is there any difference in the quality or how they perform?  You can buy a complete set of the flexible ones for the price of either the front or back set of the moulded ones.

Many thanks,

Moulded, but don't buy Suzuki, best buy is from China at about £20. (Al-Ex)
I have them on my car, excellent ,no problems except slow delivery.

I prefer the flexible variety, if you have the misfortune to reverse up to a high curb , the moulded one can get hung up or broken.
So now you are back to 2 choices again. Isn't life difficult.

Flexible if you are going off road or moulded if you want them to look better
As said there are some on eBay made for the Chinese spec S-Cross....

I purchased OEM Suzuki China ones for my SX4 and surprised how good they were....

Thanks for posting that, Karl.

How easy are they to install? I don't mind giving it a go but I tend to be a little ham fisted when it comes to DIY!

Really easy, using a flat bladed screw driver remove the original plastic popper clips

Fold back the plastic arch liner

Slide the spire clips over the original holes that you removed the plastic popper clips from, return the arch liner into place and screw the mudflaps into place using the self tapper screws

Both the spire clips and self tappers above are in the mudflap kit

i was lucky my Vitara came with the flexible flaps,the only downside some moron had fitted the front ones the wrong way round,ie drivers side fitted to the passenger side and vice versa.also left the passenger side arch liner all bent out of shape plus they must not know how to use templates or not bothered with them,along with half the clips and screws,so i bought a new pair to replace them with..other wise i would have gone the Chinese route,mind given this virus any orders from China may take a while,i ordered some non slip mats,they have been delayed with no given time frame due to China being on lockdown..

Ref China lockdown, things seem to be improving, in fact my order was quicker than normal.
I ordered an item on 31/01/20.
Company emailed to say dispatch would be delayed.
Company emailed to say order dispatched on 17/02/2020
Received order today 20/02/2020.
