Maruti Suzuki has now released a new TVC for the new S-Cross petrol.
The video has been uploaded by Maruti Suzuki on their Nexa Experience youtube channel. The video basically focuses on the changes that are made to the car. In terms of changes almost nothing has changed on the outside and inside. It still gets the same aggressive looking front end with projector type headlamps and LED DRLs integrated in it.The front grille with chrome garnish gives it a premium look.
On the inside, it gets premium looking leather seats, touchscreen infotainment screen which has been updated with Maruti’s Smart Studio system and so on. It also offers features like cruise control and SHVS smart hybrid technology which helps in increasing the overall fuel economy of the car. rain sensing wipers, electrically controlled ORVMs are some of the other features.
Talking about the changes, the biggest change is the engine itself. The 1.3 litre diesel engine which was the only engine option available with S-Cross has been discontinued and is now powered by a 1.5 litre naturally aspirated petrol engine that is developed by Suzuki in-house. The engine is the same unit that we have seen in Ciaz, Brezza, Ertiga and XL6. The engine generates 112 Bhp and 134 Nm of peak torque.
Another change is the availability of an automatic transmission. Diesel version was only available with manual gearbox but, petrol version comes with a four-speed torque converter automatic transmission option along with manual gearbox. In terms of safety, S-Cross is equipped with dual airbags, ABS and EBD, speed alert, seat belt reminder, rear parking sensors as standard. Bookings for S-Cross petrol have already started and deliveries expected to start soon. The car rivals the likes of the Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, Renault Duster and Nissan Kicks in the compact SUV segment. The S-Cross is sold through Maruti Suzuki’s NEXA line up of car dealerships.
