Last evening i was comparing the side and front profile of both models to check the feasibility of swapping front bumper and grill. From the looks it seems it can be done. Not sure about the frame behind bumper though.

Is anyone aware of this kind of possibility?

Be it changing of headlights or grill, don't think that would be so easy unless someone is ready to change the bonnet itself. Honestly, have no idea about the bumpers.

PS : I was just comparing the side profile as how much of difference it makes with custom alloys and tyres in the facelift vs the current version.

Coming to the engine, if Maruti is going to discontinue the Fiat sourced 1.6L then there must be plans to use the suzuki developed 1.5L, which is currently being tested in Ciaz.

This looks significantly better than the chrome grill from the photographs. If the car appears too gaudy in real life, I would love to get it painted like in these shots. Can chrome be painted over for a stock finish?

Big news is, there will be a CVT variant too! ( 6AT)
I hope not. A CVT transmission does not work with the character of this car. I was really impressed with the AGS transmission in the new Dzire and I hope Suzuki brings that to the table with the updated S-Cross. I don't understand why it is regarded as the inferior option. It is easily superior to the CVT setup in the Baleno.

Absolutely. We are in the market for a second car and I'd almost finalised the Dzire in my excitement at being able to buy a very drivable ASG equipped car in the top spec trim. That is a rare sight in India. But I have my sights set on the S-Cross now and I'm waiting for Maruti to launch a petrol AGS variant of it with all the bells and whistles money can buy, including 6 airbags, AWD, ESP, HLA and TCS. If Maruti offers an automatic gearbox only on the second best trim, I don't know what I'll do.

The just released option for S Cross in Japan is with AT and not CVT configured. This will likely be offered in India too.

I am still curiously waiting for the Diesel engine options. Hope it is the 1.6L DDiS and not their own 1.5L DDiS

Any update on that part buddy?

I absolutely agree!! It looks gorgeous in that black grill! I so hope Maruti would bring that to India. But looks extremely doubtful considering the chrome fever in India. If chrome could be painted over with stock finish, I would consider that for the new Dzire as well.

I am heading the same way with the absence of top spec trim on the Baleno and the fun to drive element of the AGS.

Looks extremely doubtful as I remember reading Mr. C.V.Raman announcing that models upto Dzire will have AGS and from Baleno onwards will have CVT/AT. Personally I think they would launch the facelift with AT.

As per a source of mine, the 1.5L will come in Ciaz first followed by S-Cross and Brezza but that's towards the end of 2018, most probably with the Ciaz facelift. As far as the S-Cross facelift is concerned, it's going to be with current engine options. I'm somewhat skeptical about 1.6 but he says it'll be there. The petrol also may debut this time and same engine will be there for Brezza also.

Reading through this thread, some members expressed reservations about the potential longevity of the S-Cross based on its sales figures. Granted, the S-Cross is the least popular member of Maruti Suzukiís lineup by number of sales per month, but a little perspective is in order. I looked at the sales figures of all the cars in India for the past five months and it turns out that are only four cars in the country that are more expensive than the S-Cross and sell more units. Here they are (from most to least popular):
  1. Hyundai Creta
  2. Toyota Innova
  3. Honda City
  4. Mahindra Scorpio

Thereís nothing wrong with being fifth behind contenders like those (except for the Scorpio, maybe). In MSís own lineup, S-Cross is obviously the most expensive model, so itís not very shocking for it to be the lowest selling. It is worth noting, however, that it still sells more than the cumulative numbers for the entire lineup of several companies, so I donít think it is in danger of being discontinued anytime soon, as long as owner satisfaction for the car continues to be as high as it is.

In fact, that it is the rarest Maruti Suzuki car on the road is a significant thing it has going for it. I, for one, wish that it continues to sell at this pace, so that the company has enough incentive to keep it going and ability to offer decent service for it, while still maintaining some of the uniqueness that it exudes by virtue of being MSís slowest seller.

Note for the mods: Sorry for the double post. I accidentally hit the Post Quick Reply button before it was done cooking, and I saw no other way out.

If Suzuki is moving away from 1.6MJD it is not without a reason.

FCA is embroiled in speculation of emission in US and Europe, but now Dutch authorities are looking at [b]Suzuki Vitara suspected to have unacceptably high levels of toxic emissions during road tests.

Suzuki Vitara and S Cross uses the 1,6MJD in the global offerings,

Quote:
Dutch prosecutors said on Monday they will investigate possible misuse of vehicle emissions software by Suzuki and Fiat Chrysler's (FCHA.MI) Jeep.

They were responding after the Dutch road authority (RDW) found that the Jeep Grand Cherokee and Suzuki Vitara models produced unacceptably high levels of toxic emissions during road tests
Quote:
The RDW said Suzuki Vitaras appeared to emit much more nitrogen oxide after a short time on the road. The company has offered a fix and is currently rolling it out for the roughly 8,000 Vitara models on Dutch roads.

Not many S-cross spotted testing on the roads. Surprised since if they are bringing new engine options as widely expected and availed through insider info, they should be testing the facelifted S-cross a lot more

Not necessary to spot too many test mules. Remember Honda city face lift?

No new engines are widely expected. I just wish they retain the 1.6 DDIS. 1.0 booster jet / 1.5 NA petrol may be the only other options.

It's all speculations by certain individuals / websites etc. No solid evidence or confirmation.

Are they getting sunroof in the top model? I read somewhere that they might be. But visited a because showroom today and the RM told me that the facelift will have only cosmetic changes with no engine refresh or sunroof. For all the effort Maruti spent in moving the premium vehicles to Nexa, none of them have a sunroof!!

Mod Note: Please avoid typing like.... this.....

I doubt they will, but I sent an email to Suzuki (most likely) in vain requesting just that a few weeks ago. Here's what it said:

Quote:
Hi. I’m in the market for a compact SUV or crossover within a loosely defined budget of about ₹12.5 lac on-road and have shortlisted the S-Cross and Vitara Brezza as potential buys. Having never owned a Maruti (or Suzuki) before, I look forward to buying my first one.

However, both these cars, in their current form, are not a great fit for me. I need a petrol automatic with all the bells, whistles and creature comforts you can offer, but neither of these come with a petrol burner. I know you have plans to launch petrol automatics for both within a span of three months, and I'm holding up the decision until you do.

Please, for the love of all that is holy, give us powerful petrol motors mated to a smooth AGS transmission in both cars, like you did with the DZire! Don’t throw in the CVT transmission of the Baleno and ruin the drivability of the cars. And, like with the DZire, give it on the topmost trim, not the second one from the top. If I have the cash for a premium crossover automatic, I want one with leather upholstery and a swanky touchscreen and the latest wiz bang gadgetry.

While we are at it, if you can add more features like a sunroof, all wheel drive, ESP, HSA and TCS, more airbags, cornering lights, etc. I would be happy to pay a premium for their inclusion. If you are going to make a premium crossover or SUV, why not go all out and make it something no quality seeking customer can turn down?

Thanks for your time. I am really glad to see absolutely classy vehicles on the road carrying Maruti Suzuki badges of late.
