Default Re: Maruti S-Cross : Official Review

Hello All,

I've booked the S-Cross 1.3 Zeta for 12,00,500/- (approx) in Bangalore. Was just curious has anybody else got a better deal? Should I negotiate a little more?

Thanks in advance.

Due to heavy rush and festive holiday in RTO, registration is not possible before Dhanteras. The RM is suggesting to take the car with TC no.

Please advice whether I should take the vehicle with TC no out wait for the permanent registration, thanks

To the best of my knowledge, at least in my region, delivery of car is done with temporary number.
RTO formalities are completed later on.
High Security Registration Plates are then installed at RTO.

I used my Grand i10 for quite sometime with temporary number. A colleague of mine drove for over one month with temp plates in my city.
Swift which I acquired at end of July 2015 also was with temporary number. The temporary number was just printed on A4 paper and pasted on the car with tape.

Hope this helps.

The temporary and permanent numbers were different or same?

We are going to the dealers place for PDI in an hour, can not decide between white and brown!

Yes, in my case, and as is the case in my state, its different.
What I have understood :

Once you take delivery of the car, the engine and chassis number allotted to you are sent to RTO. RTO then checks the chassis number ( RTO passing as its known in generic way ) after which your car's registration number is generated which shall be on the High Security plates.

Nothing beats White or Black, but that's a personal thing .

In my personal opinion, the S-Cross actually looks it's size in White. You might think I am biased but this realization came only after buying the White Hippo (terminology courtesy, Sandygordon).

The global S-cross is soon to get mid-life facelift (MMC), mostly front end and the tail section

It is expected that the front will be more agressive

Rightly said sir, we had two colour in our mind brown and white and we were shown 4 colours - brown, white, silver and blue. We liked the silver (this is different silver than we see usually) and the white and ultimately finalised on white. For PDI we have to go to the stockyard, we plan to go for that in 3-4 days.

The RM is asking for full payment before the registration work, is that the usual process? I have applied for overdraft loan from SBI.

Regarding delivery date, I decided not to take delivery on Dhanteras with TC no. (This is not temporary registration) but will take the delivery of the vehicle with permanent registration after the puja holidays.

What are the accessories that should be bought from the showroom? There is no 3 M car care store in Kolkata yet, someone please inform where I should go for underbody coating? The coating for my vista was done at Glix, Alipore.

I had booked the silver at first. I too was inclined to get the white one when I saw it in the yard but decided against it at the last moment when the rest of my family wanted caffeine brown. (Wife and mom had seen the brown one in the mall when it was on display). But I feel the white and the silver looks the most plane Jane from the front. Uncluttered and simple yet plain.
In fact it is the blue that looks the smallest followed by the brown.
Curious about how the s cross would look with the black cladded area painted white in a white car. I think then the size would be obvious. White dusters look cute when the blacks are whitened.

@tOm Have you wrapped the front grille?

I finally changed my booking to white colour. I gave it a long thought, saw thousands of pics online and decided to go for White instead of Brown.

As RTO is off for the entire next week almost, i will get the delivery in the week after Diwali, around 18-20th Nov.

Today i took my parents, 72 and 65, to Nexa to check ingress and egress for them. They were super happy with the ease with which they could enter the car. Score 1 Scross!

Why don't you go in for the original European grill? It's so classy?

Have tried to route it but could not get delivered in India. So the next best alternative is to have the existing one blackened.
