I am not sure if you might have also seen this as well
Didn't quite get you. Maruti doesn't have anything in store for the RS. Its just a stickered up version of the regular Swift. If you meant the features, its already been discussed here - http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/indian...-launched.html (Maruti Suzuki 'Swift RS' Limited Edition Launched)

Looks awesome. If released in India, it is sure to rake in huge numbers with Suzuki's reliability and low cost of maintenance. But I doubt the interior quality of the Indian version can hold a candle to the European version. We are continued to get serve inferior quality products

Source: http://suzukifan.com/2013/07/06/more...ent-hatchback/

News about the S-Cross sedan which was shown in China earlier this year, and a hatchback version of it:

"Suzuki is developing a model that will replace the Kizashi D-segment
sedan.In this occasion the new car will change position from D-car to C- car inorder to capture more and wider customer group."

"The concept have 4,600mm length,featured a 2,750mm long wheelbase. compare to the Kizashi that measures 4,650mm long and 2,700mm wheelbase.that enables it to offer a decent amount of rear legroom. The sedan version of the car will arrive late 2014."


"According to latest report from just auto,Suzuki will introduce an European ďSmall Family CarĒ that means something like compact hatchback around Volkswagen Goft Ďs size.SuzukiFan is strongly believe that the Authentics concept will also be made in hatchback version.And will share front styling and machanic with the sedan. "


So, the S-Corss is coming in 3 versions - an SUV, a sedan and a hatch back, just like the current SX4 when it was available in US and other international markets.

But sad to hear that Kizashi will be replaced by this car.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
2015…At quarter 2 of this year,There will be the time for Sub compact B-segment SUV develop from XA Alpha concept. The car will be smaller than the S-cross in both 2 wheel and all whell drive.

2015….At late 2015 or early 2016,There’re a report from ASEAN country that Suzuki developing a Sub compact B-segment sedan for the countries that prefer a car with a trunk.The car will be replacement for SX4 sedan and smaller than Authentics.
Expect the car carry 1.2-1.4 liter petrol engine.The car set to under the same platform of B-segment MPV and may be it will share front half styling and mechanic with this car.

2016….Early 2016 It time for the launch of a sub compact B-segment MPV that has apparently been designed for customers who like the dynamics of the Swift but need more boot and rear space for passengers.
The car will share engine,transmission,platform with the B-segment sedan.

2016….Late 2016 is set date of next generation Swift.

Others unconfirmed model is production version of G70 concept - it will be smaller car and lighter car than 2014 Suzuki Alto.This should suit countries that have larger volume and fewer competitor like in the developing counties.

Maruti wake up. Launch this and can compete head on with the Ecosport. If needed mount the spare wheel in the hatch door.

That is almost RS 1.5L more than the current pricing of SX4 SUV in UK! So, if this S-Cross comes to India, it will be priced around 9L.

My guess is Maruti will pitch XA Alpha against the EcoSport and obviously price it a 50K-1L below Ecosport.

S-Cross will most likely come as a sedan only avatar !! Even if it does come in SUV style it will be oddly placed above 10L (Looking at the current SX4 pricing !!)

Any idea which is the 1.6 Diesel engine used, does Suzuki have license to use 1.6 Fiat Diesel in European markets ?

This car does look to be near the Ertiga. Some design cues have been borrowed. Though the Kizashi replacement look like the Chevrolet Cruze. The Indian division at Suzuki is not much bothered and is happy selling Estilo's, A-Star's hat give no number to the company rather dump these and concentrate on the model that sell. Refine them and pimp them up (Not with Chrome )

Like the interiors of the SX4 Crossover. Below is the picture from the link in the above post.

But YES MARUTI, get this car on the Indian shores with the new Swift Sport with the regular engines and a 1.6L petrol as a limited edition. Lets see how the sales chart read.

Cheers,
Anurag.

Lovely car.
I saw a lot of the current gen SX4 Hatchback cars on a recent visit to S E Asia.
Great lookers and highly functional too.

Wish they would launch the SX4 crossover hatch with 4x4, all safety kit and ESP etc in India - it is a highly buy-able car!
