Maruti Suzuki has quietly discontinued the S-Cross in India. The flagship SUV offering was replaced by the Grand Vitara in the brand’s NEXA portfolio.

It was introduced here in 2015 and has received many updates over the years to compete with the Hyundai VENUE and Kia Sonet.

However, with the drop in demand, the company eventually went out of business.

Why is this story important?

  • The S-Cross was introduced by Maruti Suzuki as a crossover SUV version of the aging SX4 sedan in the Indian market.
  • It was warmly received by reviewers and customers and was one of two models that launched the NEXA wallet in 2015 on our shores.
  • The car was initially fitted with a diesel engine, which was later discontinued due to stricter BS6 emission standards.

The Maruti Suzuki S-Cross has an aggressive design language and flaunts a muscular bonnet, projector LED headlights, large chrome slatted grille, wide air dam and silver skid plates.

The SUV is flanked on the sides by roof rails, indicator-mounted ORVMs, flared wheel arches with black cladding and 16-inch two-tone alloy wheels.

Wraparound LED taillights and a shark fin antenna adorn the rear.

It draws its power from a 1.5-liter inline four-cylinder engine

The S-Cross is powered by a 1.5-litre K15B inline-four petrol engine mated to a 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic gearbox. The mill generates a maximum power of 103.2 hp and a maximum torque of 138 Nm.

The car is equipped with reclining rear seats, a semi-digital dashboard

Inside, the S-Cross has a spacious five-seat cabin with a two-tone instrument panel, keyless entry, on/off button, automatic climate control, reclining rear seats and a multi-function steering wheel.

The SUV packs a semi-digital instrument cluster and a 7.0-inch infotainment panel with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support.

Passenger safety is ensured by two airbags, ABS, EBD and a reversing camera.

Maruti Suzuki S-Cross: price

Before being discontinued, the Maruti Suzuki S-Cross retailed at Rs. 8.95 lakh for the base Sigma variant and Rs. 12.92 lakh for the top-end Alpha AT trim (all prices ex -showroom) in India.
