The long awaited refresh for the Maruti flagship launch announced, likely to resemble the global update.

The S-Cross has been at the forefront of Maruti Suzuki’s charge in the country since its launch in mid-2015. Having served its purpose as the flagship, the time has come for it to get it’s scheduled nip and tuck. At the launch of the new 2017 Dzire, Maruti's Executive Director C.V. Raman confirmed that a refreshed version of the S-Cross should hit the sub-continent before Diwali.

Suzuki showcased an S-Cross intended for international markets at the Paris Motor Show in 2016. We expect that the refreshed version launching in India, will get similar styling updates. However it may retain the original underpinnings. The S-Cross refresh will get an all new up-right grille with vertical slats, paired with a redesigned bumper and a larger radiator grille, and new projector headlamps.

On the inside the S-cross is set to get a considerable number of changes including an updated instrument cluster, a new MID, additional interior themes, upholstery with contrast stitching and new optional extras on the dashboard.

It might be wishful thinking, to expect the 1.4 booster jet petrol engine -- which is what the global updated S-Cross will get -- we expect that the S-cross will be sold with the same 1.3 litre and 1.6 litre diesels that are currently on offer.

The refresh will be sold out of Nexa Showrooms alongside the Ciaz, Baleno, Ignis and the Baleno RS.
