Bingo. I have Manza Aura+ in 90bhp state of tune and car is 10kg heavier than S Cross. It is not disappointing in most conditions and works well for kind of roads and traffic we have. Also, my car is over 5 years old now. Am sure, Maruti must be doing better job at making these now compared to Fiat-made Tata one of 5 years back. FE for me has been over 20 on highways and around 15-16 in mixed runs

What is the weight of Manza? I think S-Cross is pretty heavy at 1670 kgs. I wasn't aware that Manza is so heavy too.

It is 1190 for S Cross and 1200 for Manza.

1275 kg & 1205 kg are the kerb weight of the top end 1.6 & 1.3 respectively, pretty comparable to C segment sedans. 1670 kg is way off Sir.

You are confusing the Gross Vehicle Weight with the Kerb Weight. The Gross Weight is always higher.

To quote Wikipedia;

Gross Weight. The gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR), or gross vehicle mass (GVM) is the maximum operating weight/mass of a vehicle as specified by the manufacturer including the vehicle's chassis, body, engine, engine fluids, fuel, accessories, driver, passengers and cargo but excluding that of any trailers.

Kerb Weight. Curb weight (US English) or kerb weight (UK English) is the total weight of a vehicle with standard equipment, all necessary operating consumables such as motor oil, transmission oil, coolant, air conditioning refrigerant, and a full tank of fuel, while not loaded with either passengers or cargo.

1.7 is the discount on Delta 1.3. Are you being offered on other variants too?

I am getting a very good FE since last 2 days, so looks the engine is opening up slowly.

This is the MID reading from today morning. I know MID readings are off by +-2 but it is still commendable IMO. I used to get a miserable 11 kmpl on my petrol Vista, so this is like heaven for me.

Good to know you are pleased with the S Cross. If this is what you mileage are getting now post 2000 km it would average to ~ 20 km/l

The beauty about S cross is, so far no body, not even one person has reported any problems in his car with regards to any aspect. Rather Maruti has surprised with small value additions done to the car, the value of which we only realize with everyday use.
IMO had it been not for critics (who are not owners), person who drives it, is bound to fall in love with this car.

Very true
Too less niggles
My Dzire had started rattling at 4000km.
I have completed 7.5 k km and S cross is going strong. Ride quality, handling and poise of the car are out of this world at this price point. No rattles, squeaks or other niggles. One of my friends who rode with me praised its ride and compared it with one of his relative's B class.

The only niggle or rather irritant is the buggy AVN. But it does its job well once you get used to the bug work abouts.

Ownership thread is getting redundant due to lack of niggles; and there is no point in continuing to praise the product which you have bought (touch wood, let it remain the same way). Auto journalists' response and market response tell a different story, sad to see poor response to an outstanding car.
Comparo shot here with the Q5. - Nothing else as of now

You hijacked the words from my mouth
I have completed 7500 kms in close to 4 months and I echo your observation.
My earlier ride was a ritz diesel which is actually a well build car and had zero mechanical issues during the 3 year ownership although it had the typical maruti niggles. When you buy a bigger car(in this case almost the same engine), you are supposed to get lower mileage and prone to more scratches at least in bangalore traffic. But, surprisingly I am getting more mileage. Special mention has to be made to the build and paint quality. I am getting all these irritant scratches every now and then, but a weekly wax polish is enough to make them invisible.

On a funny note, if the odd-even number plate system come to action I will be sad not to drive it everyday

Most stocks in the inventory are July and August. By far the latest I have seen are the September ones. Apparently the production reduced to give way for more balenos.

Once you have got delivery of your car and you are happy with it, I guess you shouldn't lose sleep over these things. Enjoy your car.
