The S-Cross from Maruti Suzuki was first introduced way back in August 2015. However, owing to high pricing, in fact the highest in the automaker’s line-up, its sales did not hit that high note which we have come to expect from Maruti Suzuki’s cars. This time though, the S-Cross has finally achieved a milestone by selling over 50,000 units.
In terms of numbers, Maruti Suzuki’s first-ever crossover, the S-Cross has sold over 46,000 units in the country since launch, while more than 4,000 units were exported overseas. At the time of its launch, the 1.6-litre S-Cross in base, mid and top-spec trim was priced at Rs 11.99 lakh, Rs 12.99 lakh and Rs 13.74 lakh (Ex-showroom, Delhi). This failed to offer that value-for-money preposition which the automaker was always known for. Currently, the 1.6-litre variant is only available in top-spec Alpha trim.
In efforts to revive customer interest in the product, Maruti Suzuki revised the S-Cross prices in the country. Currently, the 1.3-litre version is available in Sigma, Delta, Zeta and Alpha variants which are priced at Rs 8.07 lakh, Rs 8.79 lakh, Rs 9.92 lakh and Rs 10.64 lakh (All prices, ex-Delhi), respectively. The 1.6-litre S-Cross is available in Alpha variant which is priced at Rs 12.04 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). Available only in diesel engine option, the DDiS 200 engine is mated to a five-speed manual transmission generates 88bhp of power at 4000rpm and 200Nm of torque at 1750rpm. The bigger DDiS 320 is mated to a six-speed manual generates 116bhp of power at 3750rpm and 320Nm of torque.
