Here is an S Cross I saw in Sydney, Australia, day before yesterday going from the Airport into town, somewhere near the big tunnel.
I wasn't able to get the badging picture from behind but it clearly said SX4 S Cross 4x4.

Here are the Australia Specs...

Get that tyre-wheel combo here ASAP Maruti!! It simply transforms the Cross. I kind of like that color too.

Drive on,

1.6 motor's performance seems to be ordinary on paper, but I am sure in real life torque would make this one of the fastest car in its segment(in-gear acceleration), does anyone have data to compare? I could recall swift's 1.3 diesel having something similar.

Got the recall service done today. Really happy with service from Sai Services, Hingewadi, Pune. Reached service station around 2:30 pm and left at around 5:30. The recall service did not take much time. They replaced the bulb in rear tail light which was not lighting up on pressing brakes. Gave a nice wash to the car. They also fixed the rear bumper issue. It was banged by a Nano which was severely dented in front. The bumper cracked in two places but retained it's shape. In the last service they fixed it like new. The only issue was with the bumper locks which were not engaged causing the bumper to protrude out a bit just under the tail light. They fixed it better than the original setting. The bumper is uniformly in line now right below the tail lamp. Most of the cars have the bumper slightly higher in level to the car body where they meet.

Really happy with the experience.

Meeting and interacting with the other Scross owners out there was priceless.

I also got the replacement of brake part done at Bimal Service Centre Mahadevpura (Bangalore) today.

The parts replaced are
1. Cylinder set
2. Brake fluid

It was really nice service experience and the activity took a little over 2 hours. The SA Hemaprasada made it sure that I got preference and work completed to satisfaction. He is really knowledgeable and helpful. Also got a power wash free.

I happened to see in owners manual that air filter change interval is every 40K KM and cleaning at every 10K KM. It also says that change air filter early depending on dust conditions.

Air filter change interval is 20K KM in my SX4 and 10K KM in my Grand i10.

Quit relying on such "news" mate. They also claimed that Maruti would no longer sell the 1.6 DDiS320 version and has that occurred? These are all just speculations, and you should not rely on speculations for launch dates. They can merely try and estimate. Maruti is working on a petrol option for the S-Cross but I doubt it will be launched anytime this year as such things take their own time to optimize and test for our country. Suzuki has already phased out the production of M16 motor (which is the petrol motor currently deployed in the S-Cross in other markets) in the country probably due to efficiency and emission reasons and will soon be phasing it out in other markets as well. They will probably use the 1.4 turbocharged unit derived from the K series line-up currently used in the Suzuki Vitara S and after making it available in the S-Cross in the European market, it will be tested and launched here in India. Right now they have not even launched the 1 liter boosterjet Baleno which is expected only later this year. As you can see, all we can do is to speculate, but even if you are to speculate taking all things into consideration like I have tried to, it indicates a launch atleast a year away.

All this will happen in the 'face lift' S Cross.
S Cross for European Markets will get the 1.4L boosterjet first.

In India the Vitara (international version) will get the boosterjet engine. Rumors are this will be localized fully before launch here.

So I guess there are no timelines as such as to when will this engine be launched in India?

Any idea on the speculated launch date of Vitara S in India?

Reports (ACI) indicate an early 2017 launch. Not sure though, maybe a 2017 launch is possible but will be in a higher segment in terms of pricing.

Clarity on the diesel vehicle policy and by and large unfavorable scenario for diesel vehicles is said to be a reason for slowing down this project. And now that is where the Vitara S (1.4 bosterjet) is being talked of.

Got the recall service done on Saturday. Happy with the experience from Sai Services, Deccan, Pune. Reached there at 9 AM and was done with replacement by 10:15 AM.

Rear brake cylinder set and washers replaced, followed by bleeding in of brakes of all 4 wheels while topping up the brake fluid. This was followed by a test drive.

The bill given to me was around 7k+ including replaced parts (@5k), labor (@1.1k) and rest taxes ; I had to pay nothing out of that.

Got the SmartPlay software upgrade done as well, this was little time consuming. Got the rear number plate stutter sound (while closing the boot) fixed; I was not offered car wash and didn't ask for it as my car was nicely polished.

Mates: Is an online user manual available? I found one for the UK S-Cross, but not any here.
