I’m still going to make a booking come September 1st, but I’ll have to cancel it if Maruti Suzuki does not offer an automatic transmission. I cannot imagine that it would make such a boneheaded decision though.

It's a high-time Maruti Suzuki realizes that automatics(AMT & Conventional) are the next growth area.

Off-late all the metros are burgeoning with traffic, people, while the infrastructure is not being improved resulting in long traffic jams. For example, in Hyderabad (Dare not to talk about Bengaluru) I guess nobody would imagine a Traffic Jam on ORR but now a days during peak hours, ORR Gachibowli exit and the whole area has become a terrific traffic nightmare & when it rains the situation is more worse. Office goers who have to chug in these kind of traffic, day in day out are bound to get back, knee, toe, & ankle problems in the long run.

I don't understand why Maruti doesn't give automatic option in brezza, s-cross which happen to be the most sought after cars now a days. I waited like crazy for an automatic in Brezza, S-Corss and had to go for Dzire AMT. Looks like Maruti is only interested in only manufacturing what sells in large volumes. Completely unhappy with Maruti's attitude!!!!

I'm hoping that Maruti will bring in Petrol and Automatic variants considering that they responded to demands for Automatics in the Alpha trims. Can't imagine that someone like Maruti who knows the pulse of the Indian customer miss such variants.

As a side note, would the current automatic gearboxes from the Maruti stable handle the 320 NM torque of the DDiS 320 ? I'm assuming the DDiS 320 may not come with the automatic

The drivers high channel released this video today for the 2017/18 sx4 scross facelift interior and exterior walkaround -





What i think -

1. Not a top end model, but a middle variant.
2. Dual zone climate control A/C for driver and passenger.
3. ACC information , i think is integrated to information cluster. (You can see AUTO written there)
4. Nice floor mats!
5. Rear middle passenger seat belt integration is just fabulous.

Please like their video, they make some good videos.

Not the best angle shot for the headlight & grille. Vertical slats should have had a slight incline. Evidently, the facelift isn't as aerodynamic as the current generation. Road tests will tell the complete story. Dealers have started unofficially confirming Sept booking openings with a mid Oct launch.

The nexa guys in couple of showrooms, mentioned
just last month that the new s-cross would commence delivery in October and would most certainly have a Auto option, I intend to book one and left my name and number with them ( -nexa south Mumbai), absolutely ridiculous decision of maruti if they drop the auto option.

Wish the S-Cross petrol version will be launched with the new K14C engine (which is the updated version of the K14B engine fitted in Ertiga) rather than the old M15A engine.

This is an understatement actually. Looks brilliant IMHO.

Those braces need to go then it'll look better.

I think the lower variants might not have that gaudy looking chrome lipstick , so Maruti would have you covered. If not, 3M tape would be the savior.

OT - The front grill chrome lip on the new Dzire was borderline acceptable, but that along with the toothy grill in the S-Cross is way beyond that. And if this is where Maruti is heading with their signature grill pattern, then they need to tone it down quite a few notches. (Opinions entirely my own, no offense meant to anyone)

I for one actually like the new design. It is quite a looker in my opinion and leaps and bounds better than the earlier model judging by the European model. I'll reserve my final verdict once I see it in the flesh.

On a side note, can someone please throw some light on the tentative pricing of Top End Petrol variant i.e., how much lower will it be than the top trim 1.3 Diesel variant.

I am considering buying the new S-Cross so visited a Nexa showroom in Mumbai yesterday to check the current model. There is a 20k customer discount and an additional 20k bonus discount for exchange on the current model. Did not bargain yet so these were direct offers on the table.

Few quick points on the existing model:
* No 1.6 Alpha model available. It is discontinued and all stock sold out
* Zeta stock readily available in limited colors - Granite Grey, Pearl Arctic White and Premium Silver
* For Urban Blue and Caffeine Brown will have to place new order
* 1.3 Alpha not readily available

About facelift:
* Mentioned that it is due but no concrete timelines shared by Maruti yet
* Will be cosmetic changes on the exterior with interiors and feature list remaining largely unchanged from the existing model
* Petrol variant expected in the facelift but no information on which engine and whether automatic will be available
* Not accepting bookings for facelift model yet. Will reach out to me as soon as they open up

SCross is brilliantly packaged with all bells and whistles. I hope Maruti does not cut down on any of the existing features to make it price competitive. If anything, I hope they add side curtain airbags to the Alpha variant.

Currently the price difference between Alpha and Zeta is 1.7 lacs for which one gets LED position lamps, Leather package (Seats and sterring cover), HID projector auto headlamps, Auto wipers and Auto dimming IRVM. The price difference I feel is a bit too much for these features. Addition of side curtain airbags at this price difference will be wonderful with 75k additional for panoramic sunroof option.

The facelift variant looks muscular and grown up as compared to the current model and looks fab in blue.



Interestingly, as per following review, the facelift model in UK has 440L boot space and 870L when seats are folded. In the current model it is 375L and 810L respectively.

Also I noticed following difference in dimensions
Current model in India
Length: 4300mm
Width: 1765mm
Height: 1590mm

Facelift model in UK
Length: 4300mm
Width: 1785mm (This is 20mm more)
Height: 1585mm (5mm less because in India car heights are raised for pot holes and speed breakers)

Yes. I've been waiting from serious long for SCross and see no similar options currently or in near future within the same budget. I dont see why MSIL is making the delay, unless they want to wait till they are capable of producing the SCross amidst the Brezza load. But waiting till the brezza dust settles is I think a move towards loss.

The Maruti S-Cross has been spied testing with a new engine, probably a 1.5 diesel or could it be the 1.5 (P)?

IMO - it is the 1.5 petrol variant in the old configuration as seen in the Indonesian unit.

Quote:
Recently, the Maruti S-Cross had been spotted testing in Mumbai and the test mule wasn’t the facelifted version. Hence, it is likely that the crossover was powered by the new 1.5-litre diesel engine
Quote:
This 1.5-litre diesel engine is being developed within the country itself by Maruti Suzuki itself and will also satisfy the conventional BS6 emission norms.
