Maruti Suzuki premium S-Cross vs Hyundai Creta vs Renault Duster, more
Maruti Suzuki S-Cross was launched last week priced at between Rs 8.34 lakh to 13.74 lakh, ex-showroom New Delhi. This is quite competitive when compared to Hyundai Creta, Renault Duster, but seems overpriced when you bring the Ford Ecosport into the picture. In this comparison, apart from Maruti Suzuki S-Cross price, there are other points that we look at to find out how the Maruti crossover fares against the competition.
Maruti Suzuki S-Cross: Size </br><br>
When it is the compact SUV segment, size does matter and S Cross gets plenty of it. The car is bigger than the Creta by 30 mm and shorter than Duster by a mere 15 mm. EcoSport is way behind here with its under 4-meter size, but that is what helps it escape extra duty that the others can’t. Besides, the wheelbase of S-Cross is more than EcoSport and Creta that in turn helps liberate more cabin space. On the downside, despite a large size S Cross doesn’t appeal as the Creta, Ecosport or the Duster do with their SUV looks. (CarDekho) Maruti Suzuki S-Cross: Equipment </br><br>
Maruti Suzuki S-Cross is loaded with plenty of features like the touchscreen multimedia and navigation system, automatic climate control, rear parking camera, engine start/stop button, steering mounted controls, leather seats, all black interiors and cruise control. On the outside, it gets projector headlamps with DRLs as a standard feature. (CarDekho) Maruti Suzuki S-Cross: Engine </br><br>
Under the hood, Maruti Suzuki S-Cross gets a 1.6-litre DDiS320 with 120 PS of power and a best-in-class torque of 320 Nm. Other than this, it gets a 1.3 DDiS200 motor in the modestly priced variants and no petrol engine is offered. (CarDekho) Maruti Suzuki S-Cross: Ground clearance </br><br>
Maruti Suzuki S-Cross does not match up to its rivals in this department. When compared with others, Renault Duster leads with its 210 mm ground clearance and AWD option when the off-road ability is considered. While Hyundai Creta has a style statement of its own with those 17-inch diamond cut alloy wheels. Ecosport is great on options with a plethora of features both on the inside and can be considered as the most value for money product here. (CarDekho)
