The S-Cross gets front and rear disc brakes for added safety.
The Maruti SX4 S-Cross was caught testing once again, and seen here are spyshots of the diesel model (identified by the tachometer).
First up, the interior of the crossover is finished in an all-black shade, which could be altered to a dual-tone black-and-beige theme given Indian tastes and preferences. The test mule here sports at least one airbag (on the driver side), but lacks features like keyless entry with push button start and automatic climate control.
The rear seat sports adjustable headrests but does without a center armrest, which again could be seen on the Indian model. The doors get silver inserts and added fabrics on the armrests for a more premium feel.
Maruti is testing out the S-Cross with JK Tyres mounted on 16-inch alloy wheels with a 205 section as seen in these images, indicating that the same could be offered on the production version. Disc brakes are seen at the front and rear as well.
The S-Cross in India will be offered with a petrol and a diesel engine, though it remains to be seen if Maruti uses Fiat's 1.6-liter MultiJet diesel unit, or a an equally comparable engine from another manufacturer.
