Suzuki SX4 S-Cross (Maruti S-Cross) facelift starts testing in Europe

It’s hardly a month since Maruti S-Cross went on sale in India but Suzuki has already started testing its facelift in Europe. The compact crossover which made its international debut at Geneva Motor Show 2013 is due for a facelift next year in the old continent.

Interestingly, Suzuki has dressed its prototype with decoy kidney grille to make it look like a BMW. However, anything more than a quick first glance would reveal its true identity. From what can be seen, front and rear fascias would undergo minor cosmetic revisions while the rest of the car remains untouched.

Maruti S-Cross has just been launched in India and is not likely to get a facelift next year.

A mildly revised front grille, new taillight detailing, and reprofiled front and rear bumpers are expected to be on offer. Interior too expected to undergo subtle enhancements based on customer feedback.

Details on mechanical changes are scare as of now. The current model is powered by 1.6-litre 120 PS petrol and diesel engines in international markets. The India-spec Maruti S-Cross offers 1.3-litre (DDiS200) and 1.6-litre (DDiS320) diesel engines.

Facelift for the India-spec model is still sometime away since it was launched just a few weeks ago but its international sibling would be updated sometime next year. When it’s time, Maruti S-Cross facelift would feature enhancements that are inline with Suzuki SX4 S-Cross facelift.
