I know price varies for each states but form you city to Bangalore the price difference is too noticeable.
Road tax is 10 percent in kerala for cars above 10 lakhs compared to around 20 percent in karnataka. Price difference was around 1.8 lakhs between 1.3 and 1.6 Alpha

It might be my ignorance but won't the alloys with lesser contact area between rim and spokes lead to a fatigue fracture like it was seen on XUVs with company fitted spare alloys? I know that the original alloys don't look that great but maybe they've been made such keeping in mind the high torque from 1.6 or the Indian road conditions or maybe both?
I am looking to change my delta's wheels to OEM alloys. If any of you still have your original alloys after upgrading, please let me know. I would like to get them fixed on my car for a reasonable price

Should be the most easiest mod for S cross

Almost every 2nd owner of S-cross here is trying to ditch the stock alloys for aesthetic reasons.

Dr. Naren is about to do the same. Drive down to Mangalore and you may get a set.

Below article calls Scross as SUV (which Maruti never did so). But later part of the article goes on to compare to the likes of TUV to Creta to Terrano.

Good to hear that. If you are interested to purchase stock alloys, please let me know. I drive to bangalore at least once a month.

I did see that article, I'm surprised that a magazine of their standing can come up with such errors in their spec sheets.

This being an article about specs, one would expect them to get the specs right.

The S Cross according to them has a Disc/ Drum braking setup like the others .


This is just a glaring omission on the part of whoever did this copy paste job.

1st service completed for my 1.6 in Popular Kochi, was a very simple 2 hrs wait. The service guy said that they have hardly serviced 1.6, was a bit nervous about that. Hope the 1.6 sales take off, otherwise 1.6 owners would be a rare lot in Kochi with little technical knowledge among service guys.

From my experience and as written somewhere in the forum, before the turbo kicks in the car does not move and can easily stall at inclines.
Otherwise it's a gem of a machine.

Yes you are right. I too noticed the same. Without proof reading articles have been published.

Tell you what "All 4 disc breaks " is one of the important safety feature of Scross and this article completely lost it.

even in some of video reviews I have see that they completely change the spec of the car especially the new arrivals as per there knowledge base and not what is there on paper.:

When Fiat is in suspect to its diesel cars having a problem with their exhaust gas recirculation system - how can the DDiS escape the recall in Germany?

So now Suzuki is affected.

Quote:
Because the Fiat-engined models fall short of the nitrous oxide emission requirements during real-world testing, it is believed that Fiat will pay Suzuki for the hassle of the voluntary recall affecting the Vitara and SX4 S-Cross. As is the case with the affected models of German origin, it hasn’t been alleged that Suzuki or any other manufacturer except for the Volkswagen Group has broken the legal requirements for emissions.
Suzuki Recalls 1.6 Diesel-Engined Cars Due to Excessive NOx Emissions!

Quote:
Following the 630,000-unit strong voluntary recalls from Audi, Volkswagen, Opel, Mercedes-Benz, and Porsche, Suzuki jumps on the bandwagon with a yet undisclosed amount of cars. All we know is that Suzuki deemed necessary to do so because the 1.6 DDiS diesel engine is, in fact, a rebadged 1.6 MultiJet from Fiat.

I am getting worried after looking at your post now. I was told a maximum of 4 weeks waiting for my 1.6 Alpha.

Well, it could be due to the Jat stir which affected Maruti's production output. So I've heard.

I am, if the price is right. Please let me know what is the price offered by the alloy dealer and if I can match it, I would love to gift my Blue Mystique a new set of (hi)heels.
Thanks very much for the offer.

May not be true as supply of 1.3 variants which are also fast moving are unaffected. I enquired with 3 NEXA dealers in Haryana, none of them have 1.6 readily available and not even display vehicles of 2016 make. Has it got anything to do with engines/ import issues?
