Maruti sold 5,308 units of S-Cross in July, 2018 compared to 2,895 units same month last year with a growth of 83 percent
Maruti Suzuki officially introduced S-Cross in 2015, but the model was priced at a premium initially before getting ultimately reduced. The Indo-Japanese manufacturer introduced S-Cross facelift in October 2017 with an updated front design and priced the new model aggressively to devise a turnaround in its fortunes.
Ever since the launch of facelift model, S-Cross is popular among customers and the company has managed to sell more than 22,000 units in first six months. Maruti Suzuki S-Cross sales stood at 5,308 units in July, 2018 compared to 2,895 units same month last year with a growth of 83 percentage.
The facelift model comes with updated front grille along with new projector headlamps with integrated DRLs and new bumper gives an aggressive face. The company has also given new alloy wheels and tweaked tail lamps. The changes on front certainly changed the character of S-Cross.
The interior remains the same as it already gives a premium feel for customers even though the company has used lots of parts from other Maruti models. The S-Cross comes with touch screen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, climate control, cruise control, key less entry, push button start, automatic headlamps and more.
The pre-facelift model was offered with powerful 1.6 L DDiS engine and 1.3 L unit, which already powers lots of Maruti products. But customer demand was for 1.3 L engine and Maruti decided to discontinue 1.6 L DDiS unit. The 1.3 L diesel engine also comes with Smart Hybrid idle-stop-start system, torque assist and brake energy regeneration to improve efficiency.
The 1.3 L engine produces 90 PS of power at 4,000 rpm and 200 Nm of torque at 1,750 rpm. This engine is mated to 5 speed manual. The S-Cross is available in 5 colour options – NEXA Blue, Pearl Arctic White, Caffeine Brown, Premium Silver and Granite Grey. The S-Cross is priced between Rs. 8.61 lakh and Rs. 11.32 lakh (Ex-Showroom, Delhi).
