2017 Maruti Suzuki S-Cross facelift has received nearly 9,000 unit sales since domestic market debut in October

Maruti Suzuki first launched the S-Cross crossover in September 2015 as the first premium offering sold exclusively from the newly established Nexa dealerships. Although it ticks all the right boxes, considering the pricing customers had opted for sub-four metre SUVs. Understanding the negative wave, the leading car maker in the country slashed prices by over Rs. 2 lakh.

Since then, the crossover has stably been recording around 2,500 units. The Indo-Japanese brand has been rallying to introduce a facelifted S-Cross to stand in line with the ever increasing competition and it was first revealed in Europe with cosmetic updates.
