The S-cross AllGrip was first spotted last year at the Raid de Himalaya and quite recently at the Desert Storm.

Autocar's claim of S-cross allgrip seems to be doubtful.

Reasons :
1. Why would maruti upsize to 17" for rally purpose?
2. To my knowledge, there is only one S-cross all grip in the country and that is black in color : Imported by Maruti for R&D and now running around in rallies.

http://www.moneycontrol.com/news/bus...8_6790401.html

I guess this may be due to the production halt in Maruti plants. But a car manufactured in one day will leave to the dealer in the same / next day?

Maruti Suzuki loses 10k ( minimum)production units due to its closure, would definitely reflect in its May figures.

The total loss may be more than that, because even though they are restarting the Gurgaon plant today second shift, only "certain" operations in Manesar plant will be restarting today.

Not sure about other OEMs, but trust me, happens at MSIL - especially for hot selling models.

Assemblyof vehicles will start as shortage was due to the AC units, Vitara Brezza and Baleno volumes of May likely to be affected.

Another reason could be the launch of BR-V and Crysta. Ertiga might be the most affected here, as Brezza has a huge waiting list and Scross "has not much" to be "affected". In that case, May 2016 sales would be something like below:

Ertiga - 3000
Gypsy - 200
S-Cross - 2500
Brezza - 7800

Also, Maruti is going to discontinue 1.6 once they plonk all the imported engines.

Maruti had no serious plans to sell 1.6. When service personnel went for training, Maruti gave importance only on 1.3 and step motherly treatment to 1.6. Service guys who had been to training at factory told me about this.
Called a few dealers in Bangalore and all confirmed exactly the same. They were unanimous- 1.6 Alpha was getting more sales compared to zeta and delta, hence the omission of the other 2 variants.

One interesting titbit they shared was Maruti is coming out with another s-cross special/limited edition(maybe during the festive season). They could not offer any further details about it though.

Default Re: Maruti S-Cross : Official Review

I've booked S-cross 1.3 Zeta Limited Edition in white color to replace my 2008 SX4.

Will be taking delivery on Saturday. Today I did the PDI in the yard and manufacturing date as per the VIN is EG which means May 2016.

In the Tyres I checked and it is H rated. In the SX4, the JK vectras are V rated. Does this mean Scross tyres speed rating is less than SX4? Should I consider exchanging this with Michellin 3ST?

Following are the additional accessories coming as part of the limited edition:
1. Art leather seat covers
2. Illuminated door plates
3. Black mirrors
4. Black painted spoiler
5. Chrome bumper guards (4 corners)
6. door hand rest and center console has some different material instead of the silver.

The limited edition, I'll not be getting the touchscreen audio and instead it is the cd player that comes similar to delta version.

Congrats buddy!!

Zeta limited edition is a very good package and priced brilliantly too. For 30K less than Zeta variant, you get many accessories and miss out only on touch screen system and reverse camera.

Yes, H rated tyres can handle lesser speeds than V rated tyres.

According to the link mentioned below, H rated tyres can tolerate upto 210 kmph while V rated ones are good upto 240 kmph.

http://www.blackcircles.com/general/speedrating

Unless you carry out major modifications on the 1.3 engine of your S Cross, I think H rated tyres would suffice. C'mon we hardly cross 120 kmph in the Indian scenario, so don't worry.

OTOH if you want to swap due to other factors like noise, (lack of) grip, size, comfort and so on, then you can go ahead!

BR-V is struggling at 2344 at its first month after launch. Could be a one time effect on Ertiga? Toyota's Crysta gets a good response and dispatches 6694 units!

Depends on ones needs. The accessories offered are only aesthetic improvements while touchscreen unit is very useful thing alongwith the camera. I gave up SCross because we didn't get a Zeta car available as only two limited editions were there, just one week before the price hike.

Another question I have is regarding insurance amounts quoted at NEXA. Huge amounts. Myy friend's Baleno has around 44k worth insurance for a delta petrol. Our Brezza ZDi costed 24k although its more than 3 lakhs costlier.

The quoted accessories are not more than 15k where as the infotainment system costs around 80k+. So, I think its not that good bargain.
You can get almost all of them as accessories, but can not upgrade the infotainment even if you are ready to spend the money.

cheers,
