Our readers should agree with me here that the Indian auto scene is changing and fast, Indian consumers too have become bolder, courageous and more open minded towards welcoming new products and offerings. As a result of that they have gradually shifted their focus from the regular hatchbacks, sedans and trusty old and bulky SUV’s towards some modern looking sleek, sporty and dynamic products which are being offered by both homegrown as well as International auto manufacturers. As a result of that we have many new segments which are ruling the Indian auto market currently take for example the MPV, compact SUVs and even Crossovers.

All other manufacturers have already tried their hands on the compact SUV segment and as a result this segment is flooding with many new products, we have seen Renault starting the trend with the Duster SUV while other followed later. However the latest entrant who will be joining the bandwagon is the S-Cross which will be launched by one of the trusted auto manufacturer of India Maruti Suzuki. The S-Cross will be direct rival of the above mentioned compact SUV’s and also the recently launched Hyundai Creta. The S-Cross is basically a crossover which is based on the compact sedan SX4 which was replaced by Ciaz and it will also help Maruti to venture into the unexplored territory of compact SUVs and crossovers of the Indian market.

So go through our first impression of the Maruti Suzuki S-Cross prtemium Crossover to find out all the bits and bytes about this new crossover.

Maruti-Suzuki testing S-Cross AWD in India

Maruti-Suzuki testing S-Cross AWD in India

The Maruti-Suzuki S-Cross AWD was spotted in Raid de Himalaya and Desert Storm

India’s largest auto manufacturer Maruti-Suzuki introduced the S-Cross compact crossover last year in Indian market. The car is based on the SX4. Launched in 2WD configuration the car was claimed to come capable for major off-roading tasks. Although despite being SUV lovers Indian customers didn’t show much interest to the S-Cross.

Now the automaker is testing an AWD version of the model. The AWD technology is dubbed as AllGrip technology by the Maruti-Suzuki. The Maruti-Suzuki S-Cross equipped with AllGrip technology was seen competing in the two most popular motorsport events in India like Raid de Himalaya and Desert Storm. The question remains, is Maruti-Suzuki trying to develop an interest among the customers about the AWD version of the not so popular car? The answer is, probably not. Instead of promoting the AWD version of the model, the Indo Japanese automaker is trying to build an image for the outgoing S-Cross model, which is yet to garner the expected sales figure. Moreover, an AWD version of the model doesn’t have much potential as well.

Maruti-Suzuki S-Cross might get 1.0 litre Boosterjet petrol engine

S-Cross is the first premium crossover from India’s largest automaker

Maruti-Suzuki launched the S-Cross last year with diesel engine options, which include a 1.3 litre MJD unit and a 1.6 litre unit. But the Indo Japanese automaker is planning to introduce a 1.0 litre Boosterjet petrol engine to the model which would roll out of production line at the end of this year. This engine will generate power for decent performance along with good amount of fuel efficiency. With the help of the turbo charger it will deliver the performance like the larger 1.6 litre unit.

Not only that, Maruti-Suzuki S-Cross will get another petrol engine in form of a 1.4 litre K series unit, which does duty under the hood of Maruti-Suzuki Ciaz. The Ciaz sedan comes with a 1.4 litre petrol unit which churns out 91 bhp of peak power at 6000 rpm and 130 Nm of peak torque at 4000 rpm. Although there is no confirmation available from the Indo Japanese automaker about this petrol engine, but it would definitely make the S-Cross more affordable and appealing for larger number of customers. Incidentally, Maruti-Suzuki is expected to launch the performance oriented Baleno RS which would get the 1.0 litre Boosterjet petrol engine under the hood.

Maruti Suzuki S-Cross is sold through the automaker’s premium retail network NEXA. Despite being launched with so much hype the car is yet to gain sales momentum.

Featured Early Maruti-Suzuki S-Cross buyers compensated for price drop

Early Maruti-Suzuki S-Cross buyers compensated for price drop

In what may sound like a one-of-its-kind move by any manufacturer in the country, Maruti Suzuki has started to offer compensations to early buyers of its premium crossover, the S-Cross. This compensation to existing owners comes on the backdrop of the automaker reducing ex-showroom prices of the S-Cross by around 1 lakh.

Maruti Suzuki has been leading the Indian automotive market ever since the introduction of the erstwhile Maruti 800. Over the years, many new global automakers have invaded the Indian industry, but none of them has been able to overthrow Maruti Suzuki from the market leader’s throne. The primary reason behind this unmatched success run of the Japanese automaker is its robust customer support and unprecedented levels of customer satisfaction. And if reports coming from existing Maruti S-Cross owners are to be believed, Maruti is not taking this customer faith for granted.
