5 things you didn’t know about the upcoming Maruti S-Cross

Maruti is all set to launch the facelift of their crossover, the S Cross. Here are 5 things you didn’t know about the vehicle:

Engines

S-Cross6

Currently, the S Cross is offered with both 1.3 liter and 1.6 liter diesel engines. The company will continue with the 1.3 liter diesel engine and will most likely drop the 1.6 engine, owing to low demand. The company is working on an all-new 1.5 liter diesel engine which has been developed in house and this will most likely make it to the S Cross at a later date as well. There are rumors that there is a petrol engine that is going to be offered on the S Cross too, which will most likely be an all-new 1.5 liter unit.

Launch details

The vehicle will be launched around the festive season, as revealed by the company. This means that the launch will take place in the September/October period.

Better infotainment

S-Cross7

Currently, the S Cross is offered with a touch screen infotainment system with only Apple Car play. The newer model will come with Android Auto as well, like the current lot of new Marutis that are on offer.  The car will continue to have the rear parking camera and navigation

Bookings started

S-Cross9

According to dealers, they have already started accepting bookings for the all-new S Cross. Officially, the company will start taking bookings from the 1st of September for the same. Those who want one can now go and book one at the Nexa dealerships across the country.

Upmarket looks

S-Cross4

The S Cross facelift will have updated looks as compared to the existing one. While we are not sure if everyone likes the new grille, the car will have new LED projector headlamps, LED DRLs, and new LED tail lamp cluster as well. While the rear end looks a more sporty, the front end is more debatable.
