A few examples of Maruti S-Cross facelift have been clicked up close in Europe, indicating that the world premiere is not far away. The European version of the S-Cross is being made at Suzuki’s Hungarian plant.
Like to be unveiled ahead of its public appearance at the Paris Motor Show in October, the mid-life refresh aims to do way with the car’s understated and sober attitude.
The car gets a refreshed front fascia.
The most notable changes are concentrated on the front fascia which gets new headlamps that extend deeper into the fenders, a bold chrome grille with aggressive vertical slats and a sportier bumper with silver skid plate and wider secondary air dam.
The S-Cross facelift retains its profile without any noteworthy enhancement, save for new alloy wheel design. The spy shots don’t show the rear fascia but we can expect spruced up combination lights and reprofiled bumper. Going by a leaked image, the interior design has been retained.
The S-Cross facelift is expected to be launched in India sometime in 2017 (image: pre-facelift S-Cross).
The European S-Cross is expected to receive a new turbo petrol engine option (could be the 1.4-litre BoosterJet) in addition to its existing 1.6-litre naturally aspirated petrol and 1.6-litre turbo diesel. India-spec model is likely to retain its two diesel motors.
