The 2017 Maruti Suzuki S-Cross has been launched in India at a price of Rs 8.49 lakh ex-showroom Delhi. The heavily facelifted S-Cross will be available in three variant trims in the Nexa themed Sigma, Delta, Zeta and Alpha. The most expensive being the Alpha variant, dropping feature right up to the base-sigma variant. These are the variant wise prices for the 2017 Maruti Suzuki S-Cross.

Variant
Ex-showroom price in Delhi (Rs.)
Sigma 849,000
Delta 939,000
Zeta 998,000
Alpha 1,129,000

 

The new S-Cross will no longer be available with the 1.6-litre  DDiS 20 turbo diesel engine, but will now get its power from the only the 1.3-litre engine DDiS200 but will get Maruti's Smart Hybrid technology as on the Ciaz. The 1.3 litre powerplant is likely to make 88 hp and 200 Nm of torque.  This means the new S-Cross will get features like idle-stop-start, torque assist, brake energy regeneration system and a gearshift indicator. Which will probably result in a higher fuel economy. The new S-Cross will also be available in a new colour which is Nexa Blue, replacing the Urban blue on the outgoing model.

The interiors on the new 2017 Maruti Suzuki S-Cross also gets a touch up with the major addition being the introduction of Apple Car play and Android Auto the interface. Making the recently launched Captur the only car in the segment to miss out on this feature. Tested at the company’s world-class Rohtak R&D facility, the all-new S-Cross is among the six models already compliant with advanced upcoming new safety norms - frontal offset crash, side impact and pedestrian safety. It comes with rear seat ISO-FIX child seat safety mount. These features are standard across all variants of S-Cross.
