MSIL has revealed the details of the soon to be launched 2017 Maruti S-Cross facelift. The updated model gets styling updates and gains Smart Hybrid tech. Prices of the facelift will be revealed in the coming days.
For the 2017 model, Maruti has decided to give the 1.6 L DDiS320 diesel engine a miss. So, the only engine option on offer is the 1.3 L DDiS200, which now benefits from mild hybrid technology. It has a maximum power output of 66 kW and a peak torque output of 200 Nm. The engine comes mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. While official fuel efficiency figures are yet to be revealed, expect the 2017 Maruti S-Cross to be more frugal thanks to the inclusion of mild hybrid tech.
With the 1.6 L variant now gone, there are only four trims to choose from - Alpha, Zeta, Delta, and Sigma. In terms of features, the list is identical to the model it replaces. However, the 7-inch touchscreen SmartPlay infotainment system now gets Android Auto as well. The nose features a new chrome grille, a layered dual tone front bumper, and a new set of headlamps with LED projector units and LED DRLs. At the back, the only noticeable change is a set of reprofiled tail lamps with LED graphics.
It continues to be offered in five exterior colour options. However, the Urban Blue shade has been replaced by a darker Nexa Blue.
