The 2017 Maruti S-Cross will be launching very soon. This is another Crossover from Maruti, which was launched before the popular Vitara Brezza. The S-Cross is a premium vehicle as compared to the Brezza and offers best of both worlds, which is a car like feel with a high ground clearance and good utility. The 2017 Maruti S-Cross is a facelift so the changes of this vehicle will be minimal. We were the first to bring you the news about the 1.6-litre engine being discontinued in the S-Cross facelift. This vehicle will only come with the 1.3-litre diesel engine.

There are afew changes that S-Cross will be getting, howvwer, they are purely cosmetic in nature. The exteriors are upgraded mainly. This includes a new front fascia. The changes on the inside are not too many. Performance lover will now be a bit disappointed as the more powerful 1.6-litre version will not make it in the facelift.

The Maruti S-Cross had earned itself an expensive car tag due the high price of the 1.6-litre version. This was one of the reasons for the vehicle to clock luke warm sales numbers. This was the first vehicle to be sold from the Nexa showrooms. Now with Nexa getting more popular and spreading wide, there is a chance that the S-Cross facelift will do better than before.

2017 Maruti S-Cross Facelift Launch Date 

The 2017 Maruti S-Cross Facelift will be launched by this month end, which is very soon. The S-Cross is relatively a new product in India and hence there will not be many changes on this vehicle. The launch is on 27th September.

2017 Maruti S-Cross Facelift Price in India

Maruti S-Cross facelift Price

Variant Price (on-road, Delhi)
Base petrol ₹ 9.5 lakhs
Top diesel ₹ 13.5 lakhs

The  2017 S-Cross facelift will not see any major change in its pricing. In fact, the price will see a reduction as a new 1.5-litre petrol engine is likely to be introduced. This will be more powerful than the existing 1.3-litre diesel engine.


2017 Maruti S-Cross Specifications

Engine 1.3-litre diesel
Power 90bhp
Torque 200Nm
Transmission 5-speed manual
Drivetrain Front-wheel drive

The specs of the S-Cross will see a change here this time. The  2017 Maruti S-Cross will get a 1.3-litre diesel engine only. The engines develops 90bhp of power and 200Nm of maximum torque. A five-speed manual transmission does duty alongwith. The 1.6-litre diesel engine will be discontinued. Reason for that being, high price tag and low penetration amongst buyers. Maruti had been importing this engine directly from Fiat in Europe, hence it was expensive. So those looking at performance will miss out on this engine. Maruti wants to focus more on mass buyers rather than enthusiasts. The single engine option will help the company curtail costs too.

2017 Maruti S-Cross facelift side

The 1.5-litre petrol engine, which was rumoured to come is also out of the race. This engine will not be launched anytime soon. The 1.3-litre engine will be the only engine for the S-Cross. This is more of a cruiser engine and is ideal for decent performance and good driveability. for spirited driving, however, one has to make constant gearshifts.

2017 Maruti S-Cross Mileage

1.3-litre diesel Mileage
City 14-15km/l
Highway 19km/l
ARAI (expected) 21km/l

 

The 1.3-litre diesel engine returns about 13km/l in the city and about 17km/l on the highway. As per the ARAI figures, the S-Cross returns 25km/l. Howver, in real driving conditions that is hard to achieve.This Fiat sourced engine is very frugal and Maruti has mastered how to extract the best possible performance and mileage from this engine. An SHVS on this engine is not likely to come, as the new tax regulations would make it unviable now.

2017 Maruti S-Cross facelift

The new Maruti S-Cross 2017 gets a new front look . The new front grille looks premium, and resembles the BMW X1 to an extent. The S-Cross does look good and it has a lot of bits that do stand out. With the new fascia, it looks more attractive now. The new hood design makes it look bigger. The headlamps also get a change and there are projectors this time. This is one of the fastest facelift Maruti has ever given to any of its products and we reckon this should help. The global S-Cross got its update and it was due for India anyways.

The side remains unchanged. However, the alloy wheels are new this time. The rear is simlar to what it was earlier. Its is mostly the front end that looks different now. The projector headlamps get daytime running LEDs on this new version too. The headlamps look more exquisite. There shall be some new colours also on offer. The new hood makes it look somewhat different and more appealing, we have to wait and watch how it seems in the real world.

    Maruti and Suzuki should by now know that this face-lift will not sale; a) it is highly priced in comparison to creta, brezza, eco-sport, duster and new coming nexon, b) It looks like hatchback not SUV/cross and looks similar to I20 active. Maruti/Suzuki should launch this in different category targeting different group of audience – They should make and lunch S-CROSS following BMW X6, Marcedes GLE and Mahindra XUV AERO remaining under same price point and take the lead in Indian market. Maruti’s please leave your borrowing and adapting stg. rather spend more in R&D.

    Electric operated vehicles are about to pop up and stay in the market…..De regulation of oil prices will sky rocket the fuel price…..global agenda on pro electrification of transport through out the world will be completed by 2030, but before that the strategies of govt will be to adapt ourself to and electric market and travel by mass transit systems in city limits…….So such a premium vehicle or a cross over will not find a good market……Maruti still sailing in dream pond…

    Is it worth to invest 11.5 Lac amount to get just good style, as the engine is same as that of other Maruti Model 1.3l.

    I am just confused to select best out of below options :
    01. S CROSS 2017
    02. WRV
    03. NEXON
    04. ECO SPORT

    BUDGET : 10LAC.

Honda WRV crosses 50,000 sales mark

Honda WR-V seems to be the next big thing for the brand. We share a detailed review

Published

on

Honda WRV front angle

The Honda WRV has been one of the best sellers from the Japanese manufacturer. The crossover has sold more than 50,000 units, thereby becoming one of the most important products for the company. Honda WRV clocked 37,031 units last financial year and the company says that the crossover accounts for 28% of its sales. Honda WRV was conceived in India and is the first Honda product to have extensive R&D work carried out in India. This is therefore an important milestone for the company. As per Honda, 80% of the sales come for the top-of the line VX variant and only 20% were in the entry-level S variant. We have in past also pointed out that surprisingly, one of the key factors for high sales of WRV in its category has been the offering of a sunroof.

The Honda Jazz was not as big a hit as the WRV. Clearly the WRV has bettered its competition on many counts. Honda WRV is one of the best sellers in its segment which comprises of the Ford Ecosport, Maruti Vitara Brezza and the Tata Nexon. This is a compact SUV that is based on the Jazz and has a lot of similarity to the hatchback.

The exterior might not say that, and it looks like a totally different vehicle. The interiors are where there is a lot of similarity. This SUV is under 4 metres too. There are more features on offer too. The engines available are the 1.2-litre petrol with a five-speed manual and a 1.5-litre diesel with a six-speed manual. The Honda WRV offers a lot more features. In terms of space it is the same like the Jazz. There is no differentiating factor there. Should you consider buying this new compact SUV? Or look at something else?
