For AOP (Adult Occupant Protection), the S-Cross scored 15.48/16, resulting in a 5/5 star rating. It is to be noted that the S-Cross scored higher than the Honda CR-V (which got 15.46/16), and is now the “leading scorer for the SUV category under ASEAN NCAP”. The frontal off-set crash test was carried out at a speed of 63 km/h.

Maruti-Suzuki is expected to launch the S-Cross towards the end of July or in early-August. For the Indian market, the S-Cross will be manufactured at the Manesar plant with Indian specifications in mind.

    Not sure if the Indian model uses the sheet metal and the steel bars of similar specifications used in EU model. This could result in totally different test results as happened before for Maruti products.

    It had Curtain Airbags too, there’s no way this is exact spec would ever come to India, not even as an option. Please take out India-bound from the headline. Misguiding!!!
