Official: Maruti to Launch S-Cross in India on August 5, 2015

Snapshot: Maruti is all set to launch its latest car in the Indian market. The car would compete against the already established EcoSport, Duster and the most recently launched Creta.

Maruti Suzuki has officially announced that its S-Cross premium crossover would be launched on August 5, 2015 in the country. Just a couple of days back, the company inaugurated the new NEXA range of premium dealerships in India, and S-Cross would be the first product to be retailed through this new channel of showrooms. For those asking, Maruti S-Cross can be booked at any company dealership at a token amount of Rs. 11,000.

The India-spec model of Maruti S-Cross was unveiled at the IIFA Awards Ceremony in Malaysia in June 2015. The company has carried out a few cosmetic changes in the Indian version as compared to the Euro-spec model. The Indian model of Maruti S-Cross flaunts a dual-slat horizontal front grille against the European version's triple-slat horizontal grille. Also, the ground clearance of the Indian model has been upped. The S-Cross would be introduced in a total of 8 variants. Features like driver airbag, all-wheel disc brake system, 4 speakers, body coloured door handles, silver skid plates, steel rims and fabric upholstery would be standard across the entire variant line-up.

Mechanically, the S-Cross would be available in diesel guise only with two engine options. It would be powered by two Fiat-sourced diesel engines - 89bhp 1.3L, 4-cylinder 200 DDiS and 118bhp 1.6L, 4-cylinder 320 DDiS. It would be the first vehicle in India to use Fiat's 1.6L diesel engines. The 1.3L diesel engine would be mated to a 5-speed manual transmission, while the 1.6L mill would be linked to a 6-speed manual gearbox. There wouldn't be any automatic or 4X4 version in offing, at least as of now. Maruti S-Cross would be challenging the likes of Renault Duster, Nissan Terrano and Hyundai Creta, while being expected to launch in a domain of Rs. 8-12 Lakhs (Ex. Showroom).
