While I agree with you, that for the 1.3 engine stock size is quite fine, could you please let us know if the following sizes are available in India?

205/55R17
215/50R17

Cheers!

However, there are other opinions stating that 1.6 engine production is likely to be localised in the near future, and therefore no question of the engine being discontinued.

Im confused between the conflicting views, can members please clarify what is the correct position, i.e.
(1) Is 1.6 likely to be discontinued?
(2) Is localisation a reality?
(3) How many 1.6 engines have been imported- any news on this?
There is no official confirmation by Maruti about 1.6 engine. Maruti has not imported a single engine in 2016. Around 4500 units were imported in 2015. I got my 1.6 last month. But engine is produced atleast 1 year before (confirmed this by looking at various tags on engine parts). Maruti has not yet started localisation of 1.6 engine. I have good rapport with service guys and got information that Maruti is going to discontinue 1.6 and that's the reason for not importing any new engines. There should be no problem even if 1.6 is discontinued. Maruti will provide the spares. Since you are planning to buy after few months, I too don't know if 1.6 would be available then.

In some Maruti vehicles fitted with VGT, the VGT Solenoid Valve malfunction is the cause for black smoke during acceleration. IMHO, when you press the A pedal, the ECM instructs the injectors to provide increased injection of fuel and simultaneously instructs the VGT Solenoid Valve to actuate the Turbo Charger. This will give you acceleration on demand without making the fuel mix rich or lean.

However, if the solenoid valve causes a lag in physical actuation of the VGT, the fuel mix becomes rich for a few seconds because the injectors are actuated before the VGT. This leads to black some being emitted for a few seconds during acceleration. Once, the turbo kicks in, the black smoke disappears. This happened in some Ertigas fitted with VGT.

This can only be diagnosed during a road test while the vehicle is attached to the Suzuki Diagnostic Tool (SDT). Various snapshots of the SDT have to be taken as and when the symptom is observed during road test. The snapshots can then be compared to the readings of a non-symptomatic vehicle to diagnose the root cause.

Please see if this helps in your case. There may be other causes but this one seems more plausible in your case.

Happy driving!

The bumper was white. I am aware of the black bumper being there but this was white. Maybe an aftermarket paint/vinyl job not sure, but it was there. Quite frankly I'd love to wrap that black cladding with another colour myself, actually looked pretty good

I will let this know to my service advisors before i leave my car with them.i am just not quite comfortable to leave my car again and again for same issue in service centres as my parents may be getting worried about our Scross inside but they are not saying anything yet though.hope this turns out to be last trip for black smoke. Thank you for inputs.

Something like this
I liked it at first for a change but after sometime i guess black looks good to me atleast .in real life scross may be looking quite bigger with same color bumper.

W.r.t the 1.3, my swift used to emit black smoke, blame it to the city running on weekdays. During my weekend drive to Mumbai, some high speed / rev sessions to clear off the exhaust and bob's your uncle . At one instance it was a clogged Intercooler and a messy EGR valve. Both were cleaned and the issue vanished.

Girish
I got a good discount on the speakers+twitters+subwoofer+amp as I had purchased the alloy and other stuff for this single shop.
1. 2 component speakers (Velocity)- 7.8K
2. Amp- 7.8K
3. Subwoofer- 4.7K
4. Cables and fitting- 3K

Below are the pictures:
The tweeters are mounted on the existing twitter bay. I think its screwed from the bottom but will need to check.

The amp getting installed below the front seat. The seat was removed.

The speaker was mounted in this bracket. Prevents speakers touching the metal directly and reduces vibrations. Behind you can see the Dynamat applied.

Checked the stock pictures. They are not the same. Now need to look at where these alloys are available? IMHO Maruti will not bring them here for a very long time, like never.

I would like to know how many people are using cruise control in the S Cross. My drives have taken me mostly through the north Indian roads where i am constantly weaving in and out of cars, trucks and buses. Very rarely have I been able to keep a fixed speed for more than two minutes. I considered cruise control but felt that there would be less need so dropped down to a delta. So the question. and the follow up, if you all say that it is extensively used is 'can I get it as an add on?'

I use it very frequently to the extent of using it in the city for short distances as much as 500mtrs. It's sufficient time to relax your leg muscle s after driving thru traffic.

S Cross 1.6 users, is there any estimate of the typical service charges for the 1.6 engine post the three free services? Any kind of ball park figure? I was told that the service costs are similar to the 1.3 engine by the Nexa people, though I have my doubts.

The charges may vary when it comes to replacements. For eg-
1- The 1.3 needs 3.2l of engine oil whereas the 1.6 needs 5.25l
2-The 1.3 needs 6l of coolant as compared to 5.5 L for the 1.6
3-Air filter should be different for both
4-Diesel filter (should be expensive for the 1.6 since the engine is imported)
5-The GB oil of the 1.6 needs to be replaced after 1.5 lac KM.

I use the cruise control every weekend when I travel to Mumbai on the expressway.

This will surely be the extended version of the Brezza. During the launch of Brezza, Maruti officials had mentioned, that based on the response, they will come up with such an option.

May be a 7-seater?
With 4500mm in length?
With a 1.6L Fiat Diesel engine / 1.5L Suzuki Diesel engine, and a 1.5/1.6L Petrol engine?

If it is aimed to undercut Creta, they have to launch the Petrol base version at 8L and Diesel base version at 9L ex-showroom Delhi, which is possible if we consider the following:

Brezza Diesel base: 7L
Additional tax: 50K
Add for a bigger engine: 1L
Add for the bigger body: 50K

So, a 9L ex-showroom price for Diesel is definitely possible, provided, they manufacture the engine in India.

Minus 1L for a Petrol model, and you can price the Petrol base at 8L.

Hello. I am looking to buy S Cross 1.3 Zeta at Kolkata.

Any suggestions on which of the 3 NEXA dealerships in Kolkata would be recommended?
And if anyone has recently purchased in Kolkata, can you please share some information regarding prices to expect? The On-Road price quoted is 10.83 L.

Noticed one issue while accelerating. If I'm accelerating in 2nd / 3rd, the rpm increases gradually till 2200-2300 and it suddenly spikes to 2900-3000 momentarily and then comes down to 2400-2500 as I'm still accelerating in the same gradual input on the accelerator pedal.

Is this some thing normal? or I need to take this up with the service. My car 1.3 Zeta.

I'm no expert, but this seems like the clutch is slipping? How many kms has your car clocked? Do you usually drive in heavy traffic? In my opinion, tell them about the unusual revs at the earliest. To me it's the clutch that is riding.
