Got my first service done today. The bill was actually zero for the service! Oil top ups etc covered as part of free service. I'd opted for an anti rust underbody coating and that's the only thing I had to pay for. The Pratham centre on ORR seems to have a separate Nexa service advisor.

Nothing significant is generally done on the first service (or the second). All they do is a checkup if everything is alright and a wash. It is only to give us (customer) peace of mind that everything is alright with the brand new car that we bought, and that factory guys did not mess up anything during yjr manufacturing process!

Do you think that tail lights could have been designed better?

The only portion that glows red is the one on the right - this means your actual tail light glow is smaller than a swift!

The hatch portion on the left is reverse light only, unnecessarily large, this should have had built in brake light at least.

If it is either the tailgate portion or the portion on the rear wing, the stock tail-lamp position makes far more sense as it indicates the probably width of the car highlighting its outer edges I would agree if it could be extended to the tailgate to add aesthetic appeal though

One Question, with software upgrade, will it be possible to get same system as we have in baleno with Car Apple Play? I think hardware is same here and only software upgrade is required.

Hi volkman10,

Can one keep the standard tires and replace only the alloys with better looking ones?

I was zeroing in on 1.6 Zeta.

Thanks,

Any idea how many litres of fuel would be left in the car post the fuel warning light comes on?

Sure you can as the Stock tire size( 205 /16 R16) is apt for the Crossover and change the alloys based on your preference.

Thank you volkman10.

Can you please share any inputs on what to bear in mind while choosing alloys? For example, enough gap between spokes to ensure brakes get enough air? Or the weights of the alloys to be close to 'official' alloys?

Regards,

srideep233.

The maximum I have dared is around 60 kms. So thats a testmark. Anything beyond that, at your own risk . I am assuming anywhere between 5-7 litres.

Thanks, The range is down to ~64 now but the warning light is not yet on. Did not find the information about the reserve fuel either in the manual or the Web.

On my ciaz I notice that the range is only until the warning level comes on .post that the range is blank. Not sure if that is the case with s cross as well.

As soon as the warning light comes up, range becomes blank, literally meaning, you are on your own. I dared to go 60 kms after that .

Posting the updated on Steering wheel leather wrap( already posted in the ownership thread though)

Karlsson charges 3.5K for Nappa leather on the steering wheel.

Maruti S-Cross : Official Review-20151017_135227.jpg

- On hand brake -INR 300
- the wheel will not be removed as it houses the airbag.
- will take ~ 4 hours


If you are going for leather seats (Nappa) it will cost ~ 46K (includes arm rests and on doors). Will take 2 days as pattern of the seat has to be taken first( they have not done it yet for S cross)
If the pattern is available it will take a day for leather seat installation
