As seen in revealing spyshots, the new S-Cross sports a dual-slat chrome grille, 16-inch alloy wheels, black plastic body cladding, faux skid plates at the front and rear bumpers, raised ground clearance, and large projector headlamps with daytime running lights.

The interior follows an all-black theme with contrasting silver accents, and comes equipped with automatic climate control, rear HVAC vents, a multi-function leather-wrapped steering wheel and a Maruti SmartPlay touch-screen infotainment system from the Ciaz ZXi+.

The S-Cross is powered by a Fiat-sourced 1.6-litre diesel engine with 118bhp and 314 Nm of torque. Power is sent to the front wheels via a six-speed manual gearbox. Its unclear if Maruti will introduce a petrol-powered variant, automatic transmission or AWD capability, despite these features being offered for international variants.

    what is premium in s-cross

  2. Jishnu Sasidharan says:

    From the photo, it doesn’t look like an alloy wheel. The car may be good but time will only tell whether customers will over look its styling (especially its ugly front) over its engineering and brand.

  3. hi2aravind says:

    Doesn’t look muscular/rugged like Duster (I know this is crossover segment but still it matters).. but will sell well if priced just below Duster 110.

    another boring design
