Maruti Suzuki has launched the S-Cross facelift in India with prices starting from Rs 8.49 lakh(ex-showroom Delhi). The price of the base variant has gone up by Rs 43,000, and it’s primarily because of the addition of mild-hybrid (SHVS) tech on the 1.3-litre diesel engine. The engine specs remain the same as before but claimed mileage (fuel efficiency being the correct term) has gone up from 23.65kmpl to 25.1kmpl, a 7 per cent increase. The increase in fuel efficiency is despite the 35kg increase in weight.
The S-Cross facelift will be available in four variants- Sigma, Delta, Zeta and Alpha and it comes with a reworked body styling and some new features making it a better offering than before.
The new S-Cross facelift will continue to be retailed via Maruti’s premium dealership chain – Nexa and like the current Nexa products will boast some new premium features.
Updated Maruti Suzuki S-Cross will come with an all-new face dominated by a new chrome grille and a pair of redesigned headlamps. Projector lights with LED DRLs, new beefier front bumper with a wider airdam, restyled foglamps, alloy wheels, redesigned ORVMs with integrated turn signal lights, LED taillamps.
Interior of the car, redesigned dashboard, new upholstery and a new touchscreen infotainment system that supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto with MirrorLink.
On the safety front, the Maruti Suzuki S-Cross facelift will offer dual airbags, ABS with EBD and ISOFIX child seat mounts.
