Thanks. But there is nothing new in the pricing Quoted. Nexa personnel have the same figures of estimates too, in fact they were having the approximate Creta prices too ( OTR - Delhi) which is close enough to those revealed yesterday

Expecting S Cross 1.3 Alpha to fall in ~ 9.5L ex showroom as 'introductory pricing'.

The Creta top end comes at 17L OTR and if the S-Cross is at 14L OTR, how did you come to the conclusion that Maruti shot themselves in the foot?

Barring the ESP, 4 extra airbags what are the additional technical features that the S-Cross misses out to be priced even less that the price quoted?

Seems like Maruti will have to hand out the car free for a few to accept that the price is good.

The engine is imported and car exudes premium feel that wasn't seen on any Maruti product until now. 14L for the top end 1.6 seems reasonable considering the things on offer.

Now that Creta fever is waning and the reality slowly dawns in and some people like me have postponed their purchase decision till the reviews of Creta and pricing of S Cross is made public.
Can someone tell me the exact date when Maruti will be launching the vehicle and pricing known.
Sorry if i have missed this out in earlier posts

Unimaginable/Creta Case:

You've hit it spot on with what I was estimating too. I was hoping the S-Cross 1.6 Alpha will be 11.5L - 11.7L ex-showroom. But considering the excise duties on the large hatch, imported engine, ground clearance at 180mm and features matching a class higher, I am doubtful the pricing is going to toe the line with our wishes. There are chances NEXA could also go the Hyundai way and price it at a premium.

If we sit back and analyze carefully, we will realise that the market is constantly pushing the prices up a notch every 2-3 years (approx, huh). Excellent hatches which were not even considered 6 years ago at 7.9L on-road (Skoda Fabia 1.4), have been replaced by very successfully selling Elite i20s at 10.03L on-road (petrol vs diesel comparison I know, but just to illustrate the point). Similarly the market that accepted EcoSport pricing also accepted steeply overpriced Duster and to some extent, the Terrano as well. Market pushes and buying public have no choice but to evolve with the market offerings.

Only challenge for MS is to make the premium car buyers who normally go the Honda/Hyundai/Toyota way, to consider a good crossover which essentially will only be viewed as an overgrown hatch (won't be wrong either) at prices that may just go Uber premium.

After Creta pricing strategy yesterday, I'm not going to set myself up for disappointment again by going with wishful prices. Better to curb the expectations and simply go buy the car one likes and/or can afford.

The exact date is not yet known as no RM of NEXA is able to reveal the exact date. It is also possible that they're not aware. What I've heard so far was that 25th July would be the most likely launch date for NEXA S-Cross. Yesterday I got to know that the launch is likely postponed to 5th August, as MS are revisiting the pricing and it will be revealed on the 5th August. So assumption is the launch date and price reveal date will be the same.

Going by Creta pricing, my advise to folks is not to get your hopes up.

The S-cross has an imported 1.6L engine hence no cost saving on localisation. Hyundai has probably localised the 1.6L CRDI unit a lot more since it's the same as Verna and Elantra.

Secondly, Maruti has gone all out in terms of features which is rare. Maruti is not known to offer a lot of kit. Even with the lesser kit, the Maruti's are not priced much lower than competition.

The S-cross has soft touch plastics on the dash, HID xenon's and a host of other small features. Basically it's almost euro spec rather than trimming down which usually happens for India.

To top it off, Maruti is trying very hard to differentiate the S-cross vs the other Maruti products. Setting up a new NEXA dealership channel is a big thing and needs a lot of investment. This means they really want to try to show a premium image.

All this points to a price point which will be higher. My guess is the S-cross will be close to Creta pricing. Forget the Ciaz, Ecosport and even Duster which is lesser than Creta.

According to the Nexa guy I met, 24/25th July is the offical NEXA showrooms launch and 5/6th August is the S-Cross launch.

One advantage is that Maruti doesn't have an i20 Active in its lineup and hence can use that space to price the S-Cross.

The SX version of it is priced at 9.05L ex in Chennai and carries Projector headlamps as well. But the Sigma (O) has got the safety features covered with respect to the i20 Active but loses out on other features.

Hence even though it falls outside the 4M bracket, this will be an ideal point for the S-Cross Sigma (O) to begin with.

Also I have a feeling that the price difference between variants won't be as large as the other cars from Maruti since most carry the safety features in them and only lose out on the interiors.

Have not reviewed the spec sheet of late and hence I could have erred in the above statement.

I think the pricing of s cross is not going to be so simple. Expect it to overlap with ertiga and ciaz especially with 1.3 engine. The i20 active space is not exactly empty for maruti... Remember YBA. There is YRA also & it cant be too close to creta which is anyways high. Wonder how maruti is going to make it happen. It has no click by all means for maruti if this is going to be their first strike at Nexa. Else the whole concept of Nexa might just fail. As some folks have said Ciaz would have been a better candidate... May be they should move ciaz to Nexa as well simultaneously... May be lauch a very limited range (100 units) of 1.6 ciaz along with scross.

IMO, it is a mistake by Maruti to bring SCross first and then fill the gaps with YBA and YRA. They should immediately launch YRA and YBA, then bring SCross on top of that, so that it will just have the "50 paise per month fuel price hike policy" effect by the clever UPA think tanks.

Or, is Maruti making SCross the victim for the success of YR and YBA?

I cannot see how Maruti can price the 1.3 MJD on the S-cross over the 1.3 MJD on the CIAZ. The only great selling point, IMHO, for the S-Cross is the 1.6 MJD. I am struggling to see as to how/why the common man will prefer the S-Cross over any other vehicle. I mean why would somebody choose the 1.3 MJD S-Cross over the 1.4 CRDi i20 Active. What's the great selling point? I just hope Maruti prices the S-Cross sensibly.

Here we can only speculate, YRA is rumored to have 3 petrol variants and a single diesel option for India.
YBA now is speculated to be launched only in Diesel- 1.3 DDIS.
S Cross will be available in only diesel - 1.3/1.6.
New Vitara ? - Premium over S Cross

So YRA with its petrol offering will have space to be priced - targeting its near competition.

There will be a bit of overlap in some but they will be taken care by the segment that is targeted.
