Congratulations Dr.Naren. White 1.6 with the new alloys is just fabulous.
Illuminated door sills are really nice. All the people who got inside my car, appreciated this one and says that it really adds to the beauty of the vehicle.

I just did the second Bangalore - Mumbai round trip and back in Bangalore. While returning yesterday, Had a chance to drive alongside of a white 1.6 S-Cross near the Chitradurga bypass. My 1.3 couldn't catchup that guy for a long time.

Also, I was travelling with my family and my son (He is just 7) gives very stern warnings if I cross 120+ speeds.

Congratulations once again and you have a lot more happy miles with your dream machine.

also my car is September 2015 manufactured and took delivery in February 2016. 5 months idle time is too long according to me.
Hi Sahil,
I have a Sep-15 make too and got it in April-16. But do not have this issue. Try the things Rakesh mentioned. I think post the service, fill fuel at a different station to eliminate inferior diesel quality issue.

If i drive it moderately then no smoke ( 4th gear + turbocharger kicks in= No smoke ) In past maruti have successfully diagnosed black smoke issue for my car.does changing air filter or engine oils will make things better? 2nd free service is due this week and i am in two minded over oil change .
P.s no performance loss is felt.the car just flies when turbo kicks in but i can see black smoke in rear view mirrors which worries me.

Forgot to add.Do you do more of city running. If yes then the excess smoke will subside after some heavy foot driving. This used to happen in my swift due to slow speed city driving.A proper highway runs used to clear off the soot deposits from the exhaust.

I got my 1.6 S-Cross Alpha today. This car has literally spoilt me after 50 KM drive today. Turbo starts kicking in at 1500 rpm followed by mad push. Car does 80 KMPH at around 1500 rpm in 5 th gear (right in turbo zone). I just need to gently tap the pedal and car picks up speeds effortlessly. Totally in love with 1.6

I would suggest to change the pump. Go for Shell if possible. Also, get the car checked.

Congrats Naren.
Enjoy the beast and Happy driving.

I am also contemplating the 1.6.
Need to rethink on boot space and 7 seater requirements are really required for my next purchase. otherwise 1.6 is clearly a winner

Try BRV if you are particular about boot space & 7 seater. If you want a driving machine, 1.6 S-Cross it is!!

I have to finalize either XUV 500 W10 FWD / W8 AWD or S-cross 1.6 + some inline 4 with 2 wheels

No hurry, hence take my own time to plan both mind and finance.

Here's my S-CROSS 1.6

The Car is an Absolute Beast. Especially in Grey. Superbly Understated but the look certainly grows on you.

I haven't driven a lot (only some odd 25-30 km, All thanks to the busy schedule)
But here are some additional points I want to make.

1. Contrary to popular opinion I find the Clutch to be quite decent. Not hard but not light either. Maybe because my previous car is an SX4.

2. The TURBO LAG is absolutely psychological. I found the car quite easy to manage in traffic conditions. I have only driven the car on City Roads of Mumbai and I didn't have the slightest problem in putting my car in every spot whenever and wherever I wanted (Special thanks to the Superb Handrest)

3. The Interiors are Fantastic. I've opted for the Neon Lights and Ambiance is way beyond any car in this segment. In one sentence the Car feels Worth all its Money.

Here's the Most Under-Rated Car of 2016.
(EXTRA : Side by side with its 9 year old brother.)

Just tried hard acceleration in neutral gear and car emmited lots of black smoke.will visit service centre tomorrow (next to my building) for Appointment and will let them know the issue in advance.so on Thursday when i visit service centre they will be prepared for it. To be honest service advisers have very less knowledge about 1.6 engine.
Yes i do almost 90% city driving. I know i should have gone with 1.3 but somehow i only liked 1.6 Occasional Long drives justifies my choice

To all the proud owners of the SCross 1.6-Where is the engine oil filter located?? Is the filter different from the ones used in the 1.3s??

Regards,
Shashi

Congrats on your prized possession

The alloys from Brezza makes the S-Cross look smarter. Good choice.

Wish you a million safe and enjoyable miles

I have decided to go with the Creta SX(O) to replace my brilliant Ford Fiesta.
