S-Cross Petrol Preview
Maruti’s flagship crossover is set to get a new heart soon to comply with the stricter BS6 emission norms. Other than that, other changes are expected considering that it was given a facelift back in 2017.
As mentioned earlier, the 2020 S-Cross will not be getting any cosmetic updates inside-out. The old-school BMW-esque fascia, the SUV-like black cladding all around and smart looking 16-inch alloy wheels will be offered in the new S-Cross as well. The interior design and all-black theme, which are now over five-years-old, will also remain unchanged.
The big change is the addition of a 1.5-litre, four-cylinder K15B petrol engine with a dual-battery and mild-hybrid system under the expansive hood of the S-Cross. This will be the first time the crossover is being offered with one, previously the car was offered with either a 1.3-litre, turbo-diesel DDiS 200 engine or a 1.6-litre, turbo-diesel DDiS 320 engine.
The new petrol engine is the same as the one powering cars like the Ciaz, XL6, Ertiga and Vitara Brezza. It develops 103bhp and 138Nm and is offered with either a five-speed manual or a four-speed automatic transmission, both of which are expected to be offered on the new S-Cross too.
