Maruti Suzuki S-Cross was the model that was exclusively sold via Nexa dealerships. It is a premium crossover vehicle that competes with cars likes Tata Nexon, Ford EcoSport or even Hyundai Creta. Unfortunately when the S-Cross was initially launched it did not do well because of the high price tag. It then used to come with a 1.6 liter turbo diesel engine. However after the facelift, Maruti replaced the heart to a 1.3 liter diesel which is seen on other Maruti’s as well. This also helped them keep the price of the car down compared to the 1.6 liter version. Here we have a video where a base model S-Cross is being converted to look like a top-end trim.
The video has been uploaded by Tech Tube on their youtube channel. The S-Cross in the video gets an upgrade for the headlamps and the tail lamps. The lower variants of the S-Cross do not get LED DRLs and LED tail lights. The video shows the whole process of how the headlights are being taken out and then are replaced with projector headlamps with LED DRLs. same process is shown for the rear where the stock lights get replaced with higher trim LED lights.
The video specially stresses on the part that this is just a plug and play set up and there is no need to cut any wire or modify anything to install this set up. What this means is that it won’t affect the warranty of the car as well. The finished product looks good and the LED DRLs do add to the character of the car. The car now looks more premium than before from the outside. No other changes are made to the car.
The S-Cross currently sold in the market is powered by a diesel engine only. It gets a 1.3 liter diesel engine that produces 89 Bhp of peak power and 200 Nm of peak torque. Maruti Suzuki will be discontinuing the 1.3 liter diesel engine when the BS6 emission norms come into effect this year. The S-Cross might then get the 1.5 liter petrol engine that has been developed by Maruti Suzuki in-house. The petrol engine is the K-Series unit with 106 Bhp-138 Nm. The petrol engine will also get a mild hybrid unit, and will have two batteries on-board – one for the hybrid and the other for regular car functions. 5 speed manual and 4 speed torque converter automatic gearboxes will be offered with the new engine. It’ll be the first instance of the S-Cross getting an automatic option,
