It does slide but I felt that to be obstructing a little bit. I could get used to using it if I choose to buy.

Regarding ac, I was at the rear seat for a while and only I was commenting it to be warm but my family was comfortable. Again, not a deal-breaker.

Folks, I found this video on Youtube uploaded by an Italian Channel showing 0-100 kph achieved in 9.31 seconds as opposed to the 11.3 second time claimed by Maruti (for the 1.6).
Gauging from the rpm limit as seen in the tachometer, I'm most certain it is a diesel unit and most likely a 1.6. The video's description even suggests that they used a stock car.

Would any of you like to comment or share about your variant's dash time from 0-100 kph?

Suzuki sells both 1.6 NA Petrol and 1.6 diesel versions of S-Cross here. It could be the 1.6 petrol here.

Goto S-Cross Italia site > Cerca un allestimento.

Open the hyperlink of the variant and it'll take you to the variant's microsite.

Italian S-Cross wears the SX4 badge as well, which is absent in the Indian S-Cross.

In India, the SX4 sedan was not a very successful model. So, Maruti did not want SX4 as a part of the S-Cross and dropped that badge.

If you watch the video properly, it is clearly the diesel no doubt. One look at the redline on the tachometer and that is evident. Besides, the 1.6 NA petrol would find it a little too difficult to manage a sub 10 second nought to hundred time in a car of this weight.

I keep visiting this thread now and then just because I really appreciate the S Cross as a vehicle, as I have repeatedly and vehemently pointed out to a number of people who were teetering on the brink of making their decisions to buy or not.

I am really glad to see that so many people have appreciated this initially under-celebrated vehicle and are realising that it is such a first class package overall.

It also signifies a maturing market where a largish hatchback crossover vehicle is making waves rather than the more typical silly "status symbol sedan".

Compared with the Brezza, I mean, frankly there is no comparo - they are both from different planets.
Compared with the Creta - while the Creta is in itself quite competent, it doesn't come anywhere near the S Cross, especially in the 1.6 320Nm Avatar like I ve always said.

Good for you folks who've gone with your hearts and bought this vehicle.

When the time comes to sell it, the market anyway would have matured well. And there will be a bunch of enthusiasts sitting out there and waiting to buy it at a fair price, provided you've looked after it.

Good job done and Good luck in your driving adventures with the 1.6 S Cross!

I lost my left ORVM today, thanks to a moron tata ace driver. Called SA to enquire about the price. The ORVM cost is Rs. 4700 and a labour cost of Rs. 400 additional.

Production version of S-Cross Facelift has been spied. Changes include a re-designed Front fascia with a grill resembling BMW, larger air dam and re-designed headlamps.
Side profile remains nearly same with the exception of addition of new design Alloys. The car seems to be an LHD version.

The facelift will attract more buyers as I feel the current exterior design did not excite the Indian market.

BTW, with so much speculation on facelift, feature updates to the current S-Cross, should a potential buyer (like me, but not in a rush to book) wait till this festive season?

This looks more like Jeep Cherokee front than BMW front. The alloys look a little better than the current ones. However, besides that what is speculated to be changed?

Honestly, I would not wait that long, based on just speculations. If you are in absolutely no hurry, then wait as long as you can, but otherwise, forget all this spy pictures, speculations and rumors. Also, there is a possibility that after the facelift is launched, you may not get discounts or offers.

I booked my car on the 26th of May (1.3 Zeta) and due to the compressor factory fire and the scheduled maintenance, the car is yet to leave the factory. Hoping to get the vehicle within the next 20 days at least. The SA has told me that the car will be shipped in another 5 days. I guess the demand for Baleno and Brezza is really hitting my timelines. Anyone else with the same dilemma here?

Is there any offer going on other than corporate discount in Bngalore? My colleague is planning to book Zeta 1.3 on Monday.
