    Main issue with S coss will be the engine. 1249cc fiat sourced diesel is definitely under power for this. Maruti can not produce a diesel engine of thier own nor this car can sell with petrol only. As they havn’t sourced the 1.6 multi jet diesel from fiat, it’ll be interesting to see where from the source a powerful diesel for this.

    The front needs to be more attractive…..the front looks very pale and lost it’s shape in proportions. Are Japanese lack in art and architecture???? but, they are utilitarian…!!

    1. Gaurav says:

      Agree to that. Ugly front is killing the otherwise a very good car. Even if Maruti is too late to change the front, hope they change the front grill before launch
