India’s largest carmaker Maruti Suzuki has updated the S-Cross SUV with a host of new features following the launch of the facelifted Ciaz sedan yesterday. There is no news of a price hike accompanying the addition of the extra features.
According to team-bhp, while all variants of the facelifted S-Cross SUV have been given three new standard safety features, the mid-tier Delta has been upgraded with extra features that add to its value for money potential for customers. Maruti has given the entire range of the updated S-Cross SUV three new safety features which include the speed alert system, seatbelt reminder and rear parking assist system.
The Delta variant of the Maruti Suzuki S-Cross gets more features added on as standard. These added features include machined alloy wheels, electronically folding ORVMs with integrated turn signals and rear windscreen washer and wiper with demister. Other new features include a smart keyless entry with push start/stop, automatic air conditioning and finally cruise control.
The facelifted Maruti S-Cross SUV was launched in December 2017. The facelifted Maruti S-Cross features a more aggressive design compared to its predecessor with a new chrome grille with thick chromed vertical slats, redesigned LED headlights, a beefy new front bumper with a gaping air dam and new fog lamps. Other new features include sporty alloy wheels, a revised rear bumper and LED tail lamps.
The interiors of the S-Cross crossover SUV also got the facelift treatment giving it a more premium look and feel. These new features included satin chrome accents and the use of more soft-touch plastics on the dash and elsewhere inside the S-Cross.
Maruti also ditched the large 1.6-litre diesel engine from the S-Cross engine lineup, instead opting to stick with the smaller 1.3-litre oil burner. The 1.3-litre diesel engine was augmented by Maruti’s SVHS mild-hybrid technology and produces 89bhp and 200Nm of torque that is paired to a manual gearbox. The S-Cross currently does not come with a petrol engine option, though it is expected to get the all-new 1.5-litre K15B engine that Maruti debuted on the Ciaz later on in its lifecycle. The new K15B engine in the new Ciaz is the first petrol powerplant that Maruti has paired with its SVHS mild hybrid setup.
