Maruti S-Cross facelift or Maruti S-Cross 2017 is one of the upcoming refreshes in the Maruti line-up. This became the first product to be sold through the Nexa Range of dealerships. The S-Cross was launched in India in 2015. We expect the S-Cross facelift to make its entry into the Indian car market by late 2017. The Maruti S-Cross 2017 will be coming with some cosmetic changes and some additional features too. There should be a new additional engine on offer too? What does the Maruti S-Cross facelift have on offer? Read further to know more.
Maruti S-Cross Facelift Price in India
Maruti S-Cross facelift Price
|Variant||Price (on-road, Delhi)|

There won’t be a major change in the pricing. In fact, the price will see a reduction as a new 1.5-litre petrol engine shall be introduced. This will be more powerful than the existing 1.3-litre diesel engine.
Maruti S-Cross 2017 Launch Date in India
We expect the new S-Cross 2017 to be launched by late 2017. This could even be pushed to early 2018. The S-Cross isn’t very old product in India yet and Maruti will not want to make changes so early on it.

Maruti S-Cross 2017 will get a minor upgrade of interiors. There be a minor change in the interior colours. 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.

Maruti S-Cross Facelift Engines
The Maruti S-Cross facelift will have the same 1.6-litre and 1.3-litre diesel engine options. This time it seems that Maruti Suzuki will be 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.
Maruti S-Cross facelift Mileage
Maruti S-Cross facelift mileage
|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 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.
