The spy video shows that the SX4 S-Cross is equipped with reverse parking sensors and a color display in the centre console for multimedia infotainment system. The test mule also features alloy wheels.

The SX4 S-Cross in international markets is available with 1.6-litre petrol and diesel engines both putting out an identical 120 PS (118.3 bhp) of power. The torque output of the petrol and diesel engines stands at 156 Nm and 320 Nm respectively.

The SX4 S-Cross gets reverse parking sensors, ORVM mounted indicators and color display in the centre console.

A 5-speed manual or a CVT are the transmission options for the petrol variant while the diesel variant is mated only to a 6-speed manual transmission. Both engines can be specified with Suzuki’s AllGrip all-wheel-drive system. There are rumors that the India-spec SX4 S-Cross would use Peugeot’s diesel engine instead of the international version’s Fiat sourced MultiJet mill.

While the Maruti Ciaz sedan is expected to go on sale in September this year, the SX4 S-Cross is lined up to be launched in early 2015.

Competitors: Renault Duster, Nissan Terrano, Mahindra Scorpio, Ford EcoSport, Hyundai ix25

Expected Price: INR 8-11 lakhs, ex-Showroom

    s cross is likely to be exposed by end 2014 so that potential customers can book the same. Maruti will not invite another censure from the government for opening bookings prior to displaying the vehicle. Actual pricing & sales will happen only post 2015-budget which the auto-sector hope to be friendly. However, the government may not oblige the industry this time because they need to generate revenues for development.

    Hi,

    Reverse parking sensors are really quite tiny, and barely protrude about 2 to 3 mm from the bumper surface, so while the car may indeed have parking sensors, those bulges are really just random disruptions typically placed on the body work

    Regards

        Yes it is, that’s why the random disruptions, In general that’s done to disrupt the profile and silhouette to hide the identity, body work, or some specific items.
        In this case was just saying the large bulges circled are not necessarily sensors or covers for the same as they don’t need that large ones to cover it. Those bulges are more to mask the profile of the car.
        Like the car in the pic, the hood bulges are not any particular features. http://www.kia-world.net/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/Sedona-Spy-Shots.jpg
