The price cut greatly helped S-Cross’ case.

Sales of the Maruti S-Cross didn’t really take off as expected in the first few months due to a high price tag. Maruti then came up with a huge price slash which provided a much needed shot in the arm.

The S-Cross became the first car to be retailed through Maruti’s new Nexa range of premium retail network. The premium crossover is available with two diesel engine options in 5 trims.
