Hey, can you please give the source for this news?! I am not sure if Maruti Suzuki would do that.

- Launch may be in April/May

This is part of my own post on 17/12/2014.
First two points are valid even Today. However there is a small correction to third point: In addition to 1.6L Diesel motor, there is 1.3L Multijet also on offer.
As we all know the Maruti target customers, in order keep the price in check they may not launch "AllGrip" 4WD in India. It seems their memory is very fresh with what happened to their flagship model Kizashi. They may see the initial response after the launch and then will decide on future line-up like offerings in Petrol, 4WD etc.

1.6L engine will come with 6 speed gearbox for sure.

Yes Anurag it is hard to believe, that there is no Petrol motor from Maruti.
They might have decided this based on the target competition/customers. I think Duster/Terrano/Ecosport Diesels are doing well than their petrol counterparts. Other reason may be that they want to minimize the loss if the Kizashi story repeats with S-Cross.

Thanks for the info.
From your 'pals at MSIL' will the 1.6L diesel be from Peugeot or Fiat? or will there be the 1.5 MJD in S cross?

To be frank I don't know but will try if I can get answer for your question, i.e Peugoet or FIAT engine.
At least launch will not be with 1.5 MJD because it is still under development phase.

If this turns out to be the case, as it increasingly looks like it will, then it's a bit disappointing. It's true that the diesel engines on the Duster/Terrano and EcoSport outsell the petrol ones by a large margin, but at least they provide the option. The EcoSport even offers two petrol motors with a dual clutch autobox option on the 1.5 TiVCT engine. On the other hand, this would turn out to be the first product from Maruti Suzuki without a petrol option!

The fuel price difference has considerably narrowed down now. For those with a low average daily/monthly usage, it makes little economic sense to pay upwards of 1 to 1.5 lac rupees extra (on-road prices) upfront on a diesel motor.

Another plus of having a petrol engine in the line up is that it gives them the advantage of being able to attract more customers to the showroom by advertising a much lower starting price.

Here are excerpts from the interview ( Aug -2014)of the chairman of MSIL on the SUV/CUV's launch.

Quote:
"We will be present in SUV segment in few months from now, a model which will be competing with Duster in that size. It has to be something which can compete with the Duster, and in 2016 we will have a compact SUV under 4 meter, so that it gets benefit of lower excise duty and which will be in the same segment as Ford EcoSport," Bhargava said.

Both the SUVs will be available in petrol, diesel and CNG options
IMO, Maruti will launch the S Cross in both petrol and diesel varaints more so now considering the gap between the two is narrowing!

In May 2014, I was told by a knowledgeable source who had just test-driven the S-Cross in Europe that the diesel is 1.6 MJD from Fiat. The same source was emphatic at that time that the Ciaz would only come with the 1.3 MJD, and that turned out to be correct.

I should not be revealing the exact source on a public forum. However, suppliers of Maruti do know a lot about the car. My guess is a petrol version, if made, would only be export oriented, at least initially. If petrol prices hold at current level, maybe they will rethink.
Additionally, there was never a Peugeot engine in consideration. It was always Fiat 1.6 MJD / 1.3 MJD alike Duster.

In fact S Cross was the car and the 1.6 MJD was the engine which led to the Suzuki- VW split.

Ah, thanks for the clarity. Had you mentioned that the news you posted was from secret sources, I wouldn't have asked you the source.

Hopefully the S-Cross comes soon and comes with a 1.6L engine.

Suzuki SX4 S-Cross Automatic diesel due later this year in Europe.

Is the extensive testing seen in India is due to this variant? Time frame speculated shows we could get the Diesel automatic in India too.

It’s likely to adopt a new automated manual system rather than a conventional torque converter.

If the AGS ‘box in the new Celerio city car is anything to go by, we can expect little to no fuel economy penalties

Maruti is not going to launch diesel AMT in India immediately. This is the info i am getting from reliable sources. Suzuki Allgrip 4WD is also doubtful for India due to price constraints.

It looks like Kizashi memories are still hunting Maruti, hence want to test the waters before going out with all guns (multiple variants with petrol & diesel). May be because of this they are only launching Diesel MT and based on the response they may add more variants.
I still hope S cross comes with 4WD, because prime competitors like Duster/ix25 are already having/coming with 4WD.

S Cross in China to get 1.4 turbocharged Petrol engine.

It is likely that the 1.4-liter turbocharged engine on the S-Cross will be the 1.4-liter K14B engine with a turbocharger that currently powers Ertiga/Ciaz.

It would be great if this engine will come to India and Maruti could have the next product upgrades?

According to the latest news, Changan Suzuki soon as the car is powered by a 1.4T engine. But now a new car manufacturers still have not released information on specific power, domestic media have speculated that this 1.4T engine's maximum power or will reach 136 hp and peak torque of 220 Nm. Transmission, the engine will match or CVT gearbox. In addition, the new car will be powered by a four-wheel drive system.

Maruti may not be able to use the name 'S Cross' tag as an objection has been raised by the registration department mentioning that a similar name has been registered by an auto ancillary.

Maruti may consider to ' Across' or 'Crossa', both of which have been registered by Suzuki.

After so much hype etc generated by the yet to come 'S-Cross', the registration department is asking for a name change!

Why didn't Maruti come across this issue initially when they were trying to name this car something?! Hopefully they name it sensibly now.
