This follows the launch of the petrol AT variant (only in SX+), and comes at a time when there is an increasing demand for SUVs equipped with automatic gearbox.

Compared to the SX+ grade, customers will miss out on features such as projector headlamps, dual tone grille, push button start, automatic climate control, and rear wiper in the S+ grade.
