Maruti Suzuki has seen impressive success with the S-Cross facelift. The premium crossover sold through Nexa retail chain has posted high sales growth in the last fiscal. The car registered 30,923 units in the financial year 2017-18, which marked 44.3% growth over the previous fiscal when it sold 21,417 units. Maruti Suzuki has attributed several factors behind this success of the S-Cross.

Apart from that, the revised appearance has added more style to the crossover. Launched in October, the car has garnered pretty good response thanks to its refreshed styling.
Expanded network of Nexa retail outlets have also helped the S-Cross to garner impressive sales result in the last financial year. The Indo-Japanese automaker took a strategy to reach every corners of the country with its premium dealership chain and the strategy became really successful. The increasing demand for premium cars and crossovers too played key role behind this success.
