Can you share your month of manufacturing and purchase? Looking forward to get that feature as well.

October manufactured as per RM. I haven't got time personally to check.

In Cochin they offered 1 lakh cash discount and 40k exchange bonus on delta model 1.3 version (sold all 6 car they had in stock in a day). After this they are giving 40k exchange bonus and free insurance on zeta model.
Around 23 card were there and last I heard 10 card were sold in a day (my friend is getting one today).

There are definitely good deals if dealers are having cars left in stock, please check with your nearest dealers.

This is tricky case for both, manufacturer and the customer.

I doubt if Maruti would have all the collision info from the accident site --> service station to present the data and calculations you have demanded.
Anyways Good luck and hope they (MS) throw up a surprise to you on goodwill basis.

Also, hope you have read about the airbag system in Scross owner manual

Lastly, Please do NOT compare with Ciaz. Overall, Scross is far superior in terms of build quality.

Test Drove S-Cross 1.6 version today. Overall, very impressed with the build quality, ride, Noise, Vibration and Harshness (NVH) and power.

Love the power delivery once the turbo kicks in around 1800, but would have preferred a more linear power delivery for city. If the primary usage is highway, just close your eyes and go for 1.6.

The build quality, ride and handling is unlike other maruti. The NVH is as good as a petrol vehicle.

Found the gear shift a little hard (may be as it is a TD vehicle), and throw is not as short as Swift. Prefer the gear shift on Swift. The clutch seems a little hard, with long travel.

I am 6'2" tall and could easily find a comfortable seating position. The deal pedal is very useful.

The discount is around 2.5 lakhs which makes it a good deal. But, this includes insurance too. They would not allow taking insurance from outside. They seem desperate to sell the 1.6 version.

The NEXA showroom was crowded with a lot of activity around Baleno. I could not believe that it was the same showroom which was deserted earlier. Checked out baleno and impressed with the package, but the build quality is no where compared to S Cross. I would prefer the 1.3 version of S Cross rather than going for Baleno.

Hi,

I remember reading ownership review of Delta version. Can somebody point me towards it?
With a discount of 1Lakh in Bangalore, delta seems to be a VFM. Wanted to check the same

"S-Cross" Emblem may cost you 100 bucks maximum. These don't cost much.

My only worry in such issues are scratches to the body when the person who is stealing users some sharp told to yank it out.

Ouch! Where did this happen? Chances are Te badge will be resold in grey market. This happened with my uncles car and he found his car badge in the grey market on offer 😊 there was an identification mark on his car badge.

I have checked the 1.6L.
Following is the discount.

DDiS 320 Delta 12,03,000 -2,90,000 9,13,000
DDiS 320 Zeta 13,03,000 -2,00,000 11,03,000
DDiS 320 Alpha 13,78,001 -2,00,000 11,78,001

These are Ex Showroom Noida Prices.
I was told that there are some freebees along with the Delta such as Alloy, Gramin etc etc.

These are huge discounts. 24 % upfront and if you count the feebees >25 % and that too for a vehicle launched four months back. Such discounts were generally for stock clearance. If this would have been the price back in August, who knows many of us would have tilted towards the Cross. Missed opportunity SUZUKI!

They have finally understood that pricing of 1.6 was way off and coupled with the pressure of Nexa outlet creation , it seems to have hit hard. Sad to see this for a very very capable vehicle.

Now lets see how fast they get the 1.5 Ltr engine on board.

Which engine is this- the in house Suzuki engine or the 1.5 MJD ( under development) from Fiat?

I am talking of the Suzukiís in-house developed 1.5-litre four-cylinder diesel engine (not FIAT).

There was earlier a talk of this being postponed but last week Autocar reported that Suzuki is very much ON this development.

Must be the 1.6 cost factor effect.
