The European version of the Maruti S-Cross facelift has started reaching the dealerships in Hungary. The compact crossover for the old continent is being made in Hungary.
The vehicle which was recently showcased receives a significantly revised front fascia, replete with new headlamps, grill, and bumper.
While the pre-facelift version had a mundane appearance, the new one has a bolder appeal but the new looks may polarize opinions. Other external changes include new alloy wheels, revised taillight detailing, and a reprofiled rear bumper.
The dashboard design has been retained but Suzuki has introduced an updated infotainment system, improved MID, new trim options, fresh seat fabrics. The equipment level and variant lineup continue more or less unchanged.
The most significant update, however, comes in the form of the 1.4-litre BoosterJet turbocharged petrol engine which is capable of 140 PS. The existing 1.6-litre petrol engine which is good for 120 PS and 156 Nm of torque, and the 1.6-litre diesel motor which produces 120 PS and 320 Nm of torque have been carried forward.

The Maruti S-Cross is expected to receive the facelift sometime in 2017. The Indian S-Cross is currently available with 1.3- and 1.6-litre diesel engines. Now that the trend is shifting towards petrol cars, Maruti is likely to introduce a petrol engine but it remains to be seen which one of the units will be selected.
