We expect the 2017 Maruti S-Cross Facelift to be launched by the festive season of 2017. This is nor far away now. The S-Cross isn’t a very old product in India yet and hence there will not be many changes on this vehicle
|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.

There is an update in the styling of the 2017 Maruti S-Cross. The front grille is different now. This will differentiate it from other Maruti vehicles. The headlamps have new LED. The front bumper design is new too. Moving to the rear, most of the bits are the same. The side profile remains unchanged. Only change are the new design for the alloy wheels.

The interiors of the 2017 Maruti S-Cross will mostly be the same, with very little changes. There be a minor change in the interior colours also. The instrument cluster is another element that could be replaced. The S-Cross facelift will get some additional features like MirrorLink and Android Auto as well. The S-Cross facelift won’t get any other changes. The space on the inside shall remain the same and even the boot space too. We doubt if seat heating will be introduced for India, though it will get dual airbags and ABS as a standard feature for all the variants.

The 2017 Maruti S-Cross will have the same 1.6-litre and 1.3-litre diesel engine options. This time that Maruti Suzuki is considering a 1.5-litre petrol engine too. The company has already launched it in South-East Asia. It will be coming to the Indian car market too. The S-Cross petrol will be a lot more affordable and a better option for those who do not travel too much. The demand for petrol powered cars are on the rise as well.
The facelift will come to India not before 2017. The S-Cross in India has a lot of chrome on it and the interiors are fairly similar on the car in the images and the Indian S-Cross. A new BoosterJet engine will be made available for the European market, but not for India at the moment.

|1.3-litre diesel||15 km/l|
|1.6-litre diesel||14 km/l|
|1.5-litre petrol||12 km/l|
The diesel engines on the 2017 Maruti S-Cross are highly fuel-efficient. This will mean that the mileage of the 1.3-litre diesel should be about 15 km/l, while the 1.6-litre diesel should return about 14 km/l. On the other hand, the petrol engine being a 1.5-litre should have an efficiency of 11 km/l in the city. We highly doubt if the BoosterJet engine will make it into India anytime soon.
