The Maruti Suzuki S-Cross became the fifth best-selling mid-size SUV in the Indian market in November 2020, with almost 2,900 units sold

The mid-size SUV segment is currently one of the most popular spaces in the Indian market, with a host of manufacturers currently having one product in the segment each. While the Maruti Suzuki S-Cross is certainly not the latest product to join this space, it is the most recent mid-size SUV that has been updated.

The update brought along the addition of no new features or visual enhancements, and the only change was the one made under the skin. Powering the BS6 S-Cross is a new 1.5-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine that belts out 105 PS of maximum power, along with 138 Nm of peak torque.

It looks like the new powertrain has definitely helped the S-Cross gain more popularity in the Indian market, with Maruti Suzuki managing to sell 2,877 units of the crossover SUV in the month of November 2020. The carmaker had sold 1,439 units of the S-Cross in the same month last year, which means that it has registered a positive YoY growth of 100 per cent.
