Maruti S Cross to sport diesel engine only, Ciaz production begins
Maruti S Cross compact crossover has been spied testing again and along with sharing of pictures, sources claim that an insider in Maruti Suzuki India Limited has revealed engine spec of same vehicle.
Said engines to run Maruti S Cross are a 1.6 litre engine (possibly Peugeot DV6 HDi engine with Variable Geometry Turbocharger (VGT)) producing 110 hp maximum power and a 1.3 litre MultiJet oil burner in 90 HP tune.

Meanwhile, production of Maruti Ciaz petrol version has commenced, as per source; diesel model to enter production shortly. Maruti Ciaz, the SX4 sedan replacement is also believed to share same diesel engine options from S Cross crossover mentioned above. Petrol trim will host 1.4 litre K Series engine doing duty in maruti Ertiga, producing 95 PS max. power and 130 Nm peak torque.
