(Maruti) Suzuki S-Cross facelift vs Older model – Old vs New
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.
Could be officially unveiled in the coming days.
Last week, Suzuki had showcased the facelifted Suzuki S-Cross at an event in Hungary, revealing all the exterior and interior changes introduced. Here’s a brief pictorial comparison between it and the outgoing model.
Most of the exterior changes of the facelifted Maruti S-Cross are concentrated up front, featuring an upright grille with vertical slats, new projector headlamps with chrome details in the cluster, redesigned bumper with a larger radiator grille and new foglamp enclosures. The facelift adds a slightly tougher look to front fascia of the S-Cross.
From other angles, the new S-Cross looks largely identical to the outgoing model, save for minor changes. Suzuki has updated the alloy wheel design, there is a chrome strip across the window line, while the rear-end gets updated taillamps with a new cluster design and slightly tweaked bumper.
Unlike the exterior,Suzuki hasn’t done much to the interior of the new S-Cross. The all black interior is detailed with plenty of silver, chrome and gloss black details, as seen in the Maruti S-Cross. The facelift could introduce an updated multi-info display and a new touchscreen system.
One of the images photographed at the event confirms that the S-Cross will feature a Boosterjet engine. It’s likely to be the new 1.4-litre, direct-injection, turbocharged Boosterjet petrol engine sourced from the Suzuki Vitara S, reportedly.
A 1.6L diesel engine will continue being offered in the diesel variant of the S-Cross in certain markets. Transmission options include a 6-speed manual or automatic transmissions, while Suzuki’s AllGrip AWD system with various modes is available.
