Maruti S-Cross price to be over Rs 13 lakhs?
Maruti Suzuki’s new crossover S-Cross is expected to drive to showrooms in early 2015. Based on SX4’s platform, price of S-Cross will be approximately Rs. 13 to 14 lakhs. Originally unveiled at 2013 Geneva Motor Show, Suzuki’s crossover SUV for India was showcased in 2014 Delhi Auto Expo.
In drivetrain department, Maruti’s crossover SUV is slated to host a 1.6 litre diesel engine that produces 118 bhp of max. power and 314 Nm of peak torque. This mill if chosen, will be procured from FIAT, similar to how Maruti gets 1.3 litre Multijet diesel engine to power all diesel variants in its line-up. Power from engine will likely be transmitted via 6-speed manual gearbox.
However, it is hazy if S-Cross will feature Suzuki’s Allgrip 4×4 arrangement, as it does in international markets. Renault on the other hand will be launching a 4×4 variant of Duster in a few months, so in that price range, Maruti ought to provide 4×4 as well in S-Cross.
We expect Maruti to contrive a worthy crossover with as much belts and whistles required to go up against the proven French compact SUV. Given that Maruti has been failing to pull off success stories selling pricey products so far, will S-Cross thrive being a new segment car in their catalogue?
