Mahle is a German automotive parts manufacturer.
It has 170 production units across the globe. There is one in India as well.

But, S-cross 1.6 air filter is not made in India.

I agree with Kpzen Sir.

The part number found on the air filter picture posted by Dr. Naren it reads 13780-62M00

This number isn't for an Indian manufactured or Maruti Suzuki specific part. Reason is parts that are labeled by Maruti Suzuki would be having an 'M' in between like below:

13780M62M00

I may be wrong too but that's what I have observed.

Please find the picture of the air filter on my Swift ZDi (Mahle manufactured but Indian Maruti specific)

S-Cross is back again into it's usual sales numbers in August with 2023 factory dispatches. Ciaz is outselling Honda City by a huge margin.

S Cross is a quality product with bland interiors. I hope they make they bring the refresh model very soon so that the sales numbers pick up.

I've shortlisted 1.6 Alpha variant, but, worried if any refresh is due shortly. Any tentative dates for the refresh/face-lift or not in the next 1 year. Thanks.

Not anytime soon with the capacity and product portfolio they have on hand.( Baleno RS, Ignis, S Cross(P), New Swift, etc.)
First you should see the spy pics of the facelift on test here and take an approx. 1 year from there

Likely a 2018 launch.

Thanks for the information.

Even I have almost shortlisted S-Cross 1.6L Alpha.

Not worried about the facelift as I want the current generation only. Facelift looks bad to my eyes especially the front end.

Could be buying it anytime between December'16 to March'17.

Awesome!!

If you buy 1.6 S-Cross, it would be helpful for others . You will surely come up with few DIY suff

I too like the present model.

My wife's Chevy Spark is near 50k KMs odo reading now. I am so tempted to pass on my 1.3 Zeta to her and get a 1.6 Alpha for myself. Some may say this is over the board fanboyism, but that 1.6 engine is crazy.

The moment I trigger this topic, all hell is going to break loose initially.

Spot on !!

XXXXX (-/X) - XXX XX

Part code : Source : Model : Variant


XXXXX = Part code (5 digit)
( All air filter would start with 13780 number, similarly for other parts )

( - (Dash) / M ) = -(Dash) means Suzuki part & M means Maruti Suzuki part


XXX - Car model -
86J Swift Diesel.
75K Swift petrol.
62M S-cross diesel

XX - Variant

I have been following this thread for quite a while and most probably as a result, my first car is going to be (no points for guessing) S Cross DDiS 320 Alpha.

However, the confusion is here.

Attachment 1476793
As per volkman's post and my own observation at Nexa, it is missing in current car as opposed to the car used in the official review. Is it possible that it was present in the first batch and done away with in the subsequent lots.? I took a look under the engine bay. It does seem like there are bolting points just right for a sump guard.

Early owners, please shed some light.

It is not a deal breaker at all but just increses the peace of mind quotitent. My car shall see moderate to high touring usage and one can never predict the quality of roads. Given the fact that we have already seen a punctured sump on this thread, it not invincicle after all despite the decent GC. As per some other posts, Service centre claims it is left open for air circulation. In that case, a perforated sump guard would do the job just fine. Given its crossover positioning, a sump guard would be basic i guess. Even my dad's 2011 manza gets a solidly built sump guard. So does the avventura t-jet. I haven't inspected the underbody of any other crossover since they weren't shortlisted.

I think the under engine sheet cover was plastic / fibre material. Surely not capable of providing protection from any possible impact. At best it can prevent shrubs etc from engine.

I have an incidence of that kind near my place. About 6 months ago teo brothers of the same house got themselves a white S-Cross Alpha 1.3 each on the same day. If that wasn't a shocker for the colony, their tennaant got a silver Alpha 1.6 a month later. The sight of 3 S-Cross infront of one house is weird-ish. Sales figures apart, the car does seem to have found a place in many enthusiasts hearts majorly due to the DDiS 320 and the suspension-handling departing

Drove 1350 km to my native Palakkad, Kerala. Was a breeze driving the car with zero fatigue, still took a break at Bangalore for the night.
About the car, no regrets spending close to 15 lacs. With 7000 clicks till date on the odo, the engine has started opening up slowly. Managed to do triple digits with ease and the 6th gear and cruise control was a boon.
One observation regarding which Diesel to use. The engine sounded very rough and low on power with Shell Diesel. Switched to BPCL and the engine now sounds smooth and feels more peppy.
During the drive, one of the horns started sounding meek. Installed Roots Windtone Electronic dual tones with proper wiring and Relay. Has that Praap sound similar to the ones in VW.
Now the car sounds more european.
