Maruti S-Cross has never been a high-selling product in the market. Despite offering real dynamics and performance, the crossover failed to attract a large number of customers. Maruti S-Cross comes in two variants, 1.3-litre DDiS and the high-performance 1.6-litre DDiS, which makes 118 BHP of maximum power and whooping 320 Nm of torque.
The S-Cross 1.6 does not get enough traction because of its price in the market. The company has decided to stop the lower Delta and Zeta variants and keep the vehicle available in the only top of the line Alpha option. The 1.3-litre model of the car remains unchanged and is priced at Rs. 8.78 lakh to Rs. 10.63 lakh. S-Cross has already received a massive price cut of up to Rs. 2 lakh on the 1.6 powered models and up to 60,000 on 1.3-litre models.
Maruti is also planning to bring in the facelift model of the S-Cross this year. The new S-Cross has become bigger and is more spacious from the inside. It also receives a minor facelift in the form of upgraded grille at the front. The new S-Cross also gets projector headlamps.
2017 S-Cross will come with updated infotainment system with a touch-sensitive display. The infotainment will also get Apple CarPlay and Google Auto. Under the hood, the car will remain similarly powered by 1.3-litre 89 BHP-200 Nm engine and 1.6-litre 118 BHP-320Nm torque. According to sources, Maruti may also introduce a petrol engine with the new version of the S-Cross.
The S-Cross has been in its own league. Maruti started premium Nexa dealership with the vehicle. The Nexa dealership has now two more vehicles in the form of Ignis and Vitara Brezza. Maruti Nexa dealership will also start to sell the Ciaz sedan from this year onwards.
