Maruti Suzuki reduced the prices of the S-Cross by upto INR 2.05 lakhs in January.

The Maruti S-Cross was launched in August 2015 as the debut model at NEXA outlets. Owing to the less than anticipated sales, the S-Cross was given hefty discounts a few weeks after the launch. In January the company slashed prices of the crossover by INR 2.05 lakhs for all three versions of the 1.6-litre S-Cross DDiS 320 and by INR 40,000 to INR 66,000 for the 1.3-litre S-Cross DDiS 200.

Now it is reported that the company is returning a part of the difference amount to customers who paid the higher price. Maruti Suzuki is also reported to be offering them extended warranty for free and a premium MCP (maintenance cost protect) package.
