Well the envelope came through courier directly from Maruti headquarters. As much as I understand it's Maruti's effort to compensate something for those unlucky initial buyers who paid list price. You got a 1.6 from launch time , you might receive a fatter gift.

That's a good gesture. Any idea what all are included in the premium maintenance package?

Not sure, but will find out by Monday. I had requested the illuminated sill guards and will be going to NEXA to check them out.

The s cross is my opinion is a much better can and is also a segment above the brezza.
I ma planning to cancel my brezza booking and go for the s cross. Need to go and figure out if there are any discounts on the s cross.
I too booked a Brezza ZDi. If its not able to provide atleast 90% of S-Cross's ride and handling then will have to rethink. Any predictions for price drops on S-Cross? Back to pre budget maybe?

Doesn't look like there are going to be any price cuts in the near future. I was told there is a 30 day waiting period for a couple of variants as well. Still haven't gone to the showroom and discussed it with the nexa team though.

Anyone knows where is the OBD2 port in S-Cross. I checked it near the steering column and could not find. Help in locating the port will be highly appreciated.

In the SX4, it's on the left. Please check near the glove box!

I am so extremely pleased to hear this!
Amazing Honest Service from a Trusted Brand!

I don't have own an Scross but have heard quite a few things from my friend about Nexa. Not sure if it was the dealer driven or Maruti driven initiatives.

Most of this was business related but it still enhances the car buyer experience. Two such initiatives were

1. There was a full fledged party thrown for all Scross buyers. The business objective was also to get reference.

2. They were giving four passes for Adlab Imagica and personally calling Scross owners. The condition was to come to the dealership and leave together in a convoy. The idea was promotion of Scross

I have never heard other dealers or car manufacturer's doing it.

On a different note, I wish Scross was a 5+2 seater like ertiga. I personally believe the sales figures would have been very different if it indeed was 5+2. The market serious lacks a competent, reliable, feature rich 5+2 crossover this side of 15 lakhs. The 1.6 zeta/alpha 5+2 would have been just perfect.

Do not know any of these kinds of movement from the dealers of Bangalore. If such an initiative is here, most welcome

This special edition is based on the DDiS 200 Zeta variant of the S-Cross. The cosmetic changes on the exterior include chrome accents on the front bumper, a chrome garnish on the rear door, black rear spoiler and ORVMs painted in gloss black finish.

The cabin also gets some new features starting with a new steering wheel cover. The company has also added faux carbon fibre trim around the center console, floor console and door panels. This S-Cross Limited Edition also comes with a sporty pedal pad and foot-well lamps with blue ambient lighting. The seats get new leather covers with a blue contrast stitching.
However, instead of the touchscreen audio system, the car gets a basic monochrome integrated unit.

What a bummer ! 1.3 Zeta was the best variant and they have kind of degraded it, with this limited edition. I really fail to understand why Maruti removed the brilliant touchscreen system and replaced it with the basic system? Quite a silly move IMO.

By the way, one of the most irritating questions that I get asked often is "If S-Cross has same engine as Swift/Ritz/DZire, why does it cost so much?"

Surprisingly, the limited edition has the cruise control.
Correct me if I am wrong.

Hi Vigkey,

Can you please post your pictures of S-Cross with Momo Black Knights - Wanted to see how it looks , did you upsize the tires.
