It features refreshed sweptback headlamps with chrome detailing and LED daytime running lights. Front bumper looks massive and bold with large air intake, revised fog lamp area with chrome detailing. However, the side and rear profile of the facelifted S-Cross remains unchanged.

Like the exterior, inside the cabin too the car has received changes. It sports new colour scheme, updated instrument cluster and added dashboard trims. Expect it to come with improved seat and upholstery material, dual-zone climate control, auto dimming rear view mirror, rain sensing wiper, reverse parking camera.

Dimensionally, the facelift model arrives with similar length, width and height like the existing model. Only change comes in form of the ground clearance, which has been increased to 180 mm from 165 mm. The cabin offers same space. On the powertrain front, the 2017 Maruti Suzuki S-Cross could come with a 1.0-litre petrol engine or a 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol engine. On diesel front, the 1.3-litre motor could be discontinued.

  • VIJAY KARTHIK

    without increasing s cross height , it will fail again..

    • Yasir Ahmad

      It remains to be seen the extent of aggressive looks that the car exhibits with its revised front grill. That can compensate for lack of height as the car can be positioned in a segment of its own. Height adds to the butch looks that SUV owners looks for for sure, but then if grill can compensate for some of that, this can create a unique segment of its own. Ground clearance is a welcome change though. If they price it sub 10 lacs, this could be the underdog that can tear the sales charts!
