Launched a few days ago, the 2020 Maruti S-Cross (BS6 model) has been off to a pretty decent start with the company claiming registration of over 2,500 bookings. While nowhere near the really strong, record-breaking show by the Kia Sonet recently, these are still respectable numbers if you take into account the general lack of popularity of the Maruti S-Cross and the tough business conditions that the market has been facing. It must be noted here that the Maruti S-Cross BS6 was originally scheduled to launch many months ago but the lockdown and the tough market conditions led to a delay in the launch of the petrol-only, BS6 Maruti S-Cross.
As before, the Maruti S-Cross is being sold through the NEXA retail chain and is available in four trims – Sigma, Delta, Zeta, and Alpha trims. Also, like before, the new model takes on the likes of the new Hyundai Creta and Kia Seltos. While these Korean models are the top-sellers in the segment, the S-Cross will even have to take on less popular models like the Renault Duster and the Nissan Kicks. The petrol-only S-Cross is available in both manual and automatic variants. Prices of the former range from Rs 8.4 lakh to Rs 11.15 lakh (ex-showroom), while the automatic variants cost Rs 10.83 lakh to Rs 12.39 lakh (ex-showroom).

Visually, the Maruti S-Cross has remained absolutely unchanged. The crossover was first introduced many years ago in 2015 and got a mid-life facelift in early 2017. With the launch of the facelift, the S-Cross received a new grille, updated bumper, and some minor visual tweaks. However, in the transition to the facelift, the crossover, which was initially available with 1.3-litre and 1.6-litre Diesel engine options, lost the latter.
|Engine||1.5-litre, 4-cylinder, K-series motor|
|Transmission||5-speed automatic, 4-speed automatic|
|Maximum Power||105 PS|
|Peak Torque||138 Nm|
The latest model, however, comes with a 1.5-litre petrol engine that is available with two transmission options – 5-speed manual and 4-speed automatic. Unlike the Vitara Brezza, which gets SHVS mild-hybrid technology only on the automatic models, the new S-Cross is on sale with the fuel-saving and performance-boosting technology on both the transmission variants. Also, it may be noted here that the S-Cross is powered by the same petrol engine as the Brezza. It offers a maximum power of 105 PS along with a peak torque of 138 Nm. It must be mentioned here that it will be the first time that the S-cross will be available with an automatic transmission option.
