Maruti S-Cross could pack a 1.6-liter diesel motor only – Report
Aravind Jayachandran, It goes without saying that I'm a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.
Will be offered with one diesel engine at launch, reportedly.
According to Motor Trend India, the upcoming Maruti-Suzuki S-Cross will only offer a 1.6 diesel motor when launched. This contradicts earlier reports that the pseudo-crossover will be offered with a choice between a 1.3-liter and the said 1.6-liter DDiS diesel motors, as well as a 1.4-liter K-Series petrol from the Maruti Ciaz.
In the Euro-spec Suzuki SX4 S-Cross, the 1.6-liter Fiat-sourced motor produces 120 PS and 320 Nm of torque, paired to a 6-speed manual transmission. The Indian-spec model will not be equipped with the AllGrip AWD system offered in the international model.
The Maruti S-Cross is expected to pack features such as projector headlights with LED DRLs, alloy wheels, power folding wing mirrors, dual-zone HVAC control, cruise control, rear HVAC vents, Maruti’s SmartPlay touchscreen infotainment system, and skid guards all over the vehicle.
The Indian-spec Maruti S-Cross was unveiled at the IIFA 2015, followed by the dedicated site going online. Reports suggest that the Maruti S-Cross will be launched in the end of July, or in early-August. Alongside the Ciaz, the Maruti S-Cross will be sold exclusively at the company’s newly introduced premium NEXA range of dealerships.
