Do you really want it? I know you are planning to sell and lay hands on either the XUV 5oo or S-Cross DDiS 320 after another 1.5 Years (50,000 kms). For your regular runs of 100 kms a day on the Office-Home circuit and mostly parking at same locations, I see this as an investment.

@a4anurag - The cost depends on the size of the car as they calculate on the total area to be detailed. For instance, My city costed me about 7,000 INR where as the quote for my S-Cross is 12,000 INR (Ceramic Coating). There is also a super ceramic coating which is about 18,000 INR. I am sure I don't need the super ceramic.

The other option is to get a basic treatment done which includes Claying, Polish and Sealant, costs about 5,000 INR. I would say, if you are not planning to keep your car for over a year, don't get it done. I am in agreement with paragsachania on that. The basic coating will prevent bird drops and other contamination from sinking into the paint and therefore make it easier to restore the shine later.

Keep in mind, regardless of what treatment you do, unless you take care of it well, i.e. not give it to a watchman for washing, none of these protections will last. You need to take care to wash the car only when heavily soiled and gently dust it regularly.

I completely agree Sourab! My BIL drives a Swift and has the same experience. I felt the fabric on the S-Cross to be very decent as well. Will most probably keep them on for some more time

Please note, I am in no way recommending or promoting this, just merely sharing information and sharing my experiences
Thanks for details Sudeep. BTW, I did not notice any hint of marketing in your post, only valuable information .

Here are the ones I got from NEXA. Sorry about the poor shot. Only for you to check the type.

Today I test drove the S Cross DDIS 320. The drive was on the Pune Bypass road for a total of around 15-20 Kms. The DDIS 320 is INSANE!!

The way the car surges forward once turbo spools needs to be experienced. If I am to buy S Cross, it will be the 1.6. NVH is decent considering its a diesel under the hood. Also I did not face any problems whatsoever with respect to the Turbo Lag. There was some traffic on the way back but it was manageable. May be that I am used to driving a diesel.

Seriously Impressed. With the discount currently in offer, I think the base 1.6 model is good value at 13.8 Lakh OTR Pune purely for the torque monster. Specially considering the fact that this is the only car in India running that engine.

Munnar is just 1500-1700m above sealevel. No performance issues here noted. There may be,if you take the car to Ladakh / Leh.
Dreaming about doing that some day.

Next step, considering a tuning box once the car crosses 5000 kms. Have already done 2K, so research starts now. If anyone can guide me to a good place in Delhi NCR for tuning purposes. I have heard good things about Spider and Pete's. Experts need your inputs please.

Getting a race chip is another option. Iam not even sure if one is avaialble for SCross, it being a pretty new entrant.

Thought the car has adequate power ! If you still need more, talk to Speedsport about a remap or tuning box. I think it is at www.speedsport.in

Cheers

The floor mats I got from Nexa are pretty good. They are the rubber type but have Velcro on the bottom, so they stay in place. When I was getting mine, I was shown 2 types of rubber mats, one for ~800 and the other for ~1400. The ones I got were the 1400 ones, the other looked like they would not stay in place.

On a different note, has anybody changed the stock headlights on the zeta? I just got back from my first longish night drive and the light is totally inadequate. Any recommendations for headlights that don't void the warranty?

It seems S-cross has not found enough sales with its exaggerated price. Offers 1-lakh discount

Hey Satish, is this about the mats that you get as part of the optional accessories (Rs 8800)? If that is the case, I would think none of us should go for that accessory pack.

By the way, I noticed that your spare is also a Continental but with steel rims. Looks like you have gone for 5 tires when you replaced them. Any reason why you did not go for the fifth alloy?? Also, I find a lot of us going for 4 tires + alloys instead of 5. I always thought going for a set of 5 makes better sense. Am I missing something here??

personally, 5th alloy makes no sense. If your tyre is damaged, you just install new tyre on that alloy rim. If you have a puncture, you just temporarily use spare tyre.

An update on my S-Cross 1.3 Alpha booking with Varun Nexa.
Booking was done on 5th September. Delivery promised in 3-4 weeks.
Was offered a display car on 21st September which I rejected.
No communication from RM after that.
Complained to Maruti yesterday and called the Customer care manager of Varun Motors today.

Finally got a mail saying they would need another 3 weeks to deliver the car.

Unfortunately, the NEXA experience has been rather ordinary for me ever since I paid the booking amount. I was much more happier with the way I was treated in the normal Maruti showrooms when I bought my previous cars.

Looks like I have to cancel my booking and look elsewhere even though I really liked the S-Cross for its solid build and handling .

The facelifted Ecosport topend diesel model prices are :-

1.5 TDCi Diesel
Titanium - Rs. 9,85,844
Titanium+ - Rs. 10,44,344

Comparing feature to feature, the Titanium would probably be similar to 1.3 Zeta. The difference in price is only 14K whereas the Ford gets the excise benefit also.

Wouldn't this make 1.3 Zeta an excellent VFM vehicle with all the extra headroom/legroom and the better planted road behaviour!!
