Wow !! The most underrated car is the new best VFM. Guess what? This is scramble time to buy S-Cross 1.6, such a fabulous car! Honestly this car raises adrenaline every time I accelerate it beyond 80 kmph even after driving 17000 kms. May be its never before opportunity for s-cross 1.6 aspirants. May be I would like to even buy it for 15 lacs also.

Recently many 1.6 owners have remapped it from Wolf. Performance including 0-100 dash has increased considerably besides reduced lag and linear power delivery with reduced turbo kick. But believe me turbo kick in stock 1.6 is such that I would rather manage with exaggerated issue of lag than live without the typical 1.6 turbo kick.

Haha!! I had paid ~45K more around a year back. Anyways, there is some credible information that 1.6 S-Cross is not manufactured since few months. Those who are considering 1.6 S-Cross, please rush to nearest Nexa dealer and grab the car if available.

The new updated by Wolf Moto has improved the low end by big margin. When the lag is cut down, the perception of turbo kick would be reduced with linear power delivery.

Interesting! Madras Ex showroom prices are a touch higher than Bangalore's.

It looks like S-Cross 1.6 is the biggest beneficiary of the post-GST prices. Here's how the pre-GST and post-GST prices stack up ex-Madras

1.3 Zeta - (pre-GST) 992865 - (post-GST) 974228
1.3 Alpha - (pre-GST) 1113680 - (post-GST) 1093259
1.6 Alpha - (pre-GST) 1255743 - (post-GST) 1204154

The on-paper OTR for 1.6 Alpha was 15.35L, now should be around 14.80-14.85L.

On related note, Ciaz ex-showroom jumps almost on par with S-Cross 1.6 Alpha at 1182978 (from 1075650).

Took the car for its 3rd paid service today. Squeaking noise from the brake pedal was provided as complaint apart from usual service. The total bill was 7060/- I was expecting it to reach five figures and I was surprised.

Air filter is to be changes at only 40k intervals, I did not know this, else would have proactively asked them to change it. I would now buy it from an MGP and then change it as a DIY. I cannot imagine this lasting 40k in Indian conditions.

Bill below:

Guess who is back? That is right, I got the mirror!

The price of 7059 was including this mirror. (350 for the mirror)

Here is a picture of the car at the service station. Look at the amount dirt and grime the car accumulated during the last 3 weeks.

After the service, I took it to fuel pump to give it a belly full of fuel. Here is a pic at the service station.

Just look at that difference.

Absolutely agree!! The ex-showroom price of the 1.6 Alpha in Pune has come down to 11.8 lakhs which is an absolute steal in my opinion. Wish I would've been the market now than 1.5 years back when the 1.6 was almost 4 lakhs costlier and had to settle for the 1.3 (which I still absolutely love )

People....S-Cross 1.6 Alpha is the car to buy. Go grab one soon till stocks last!!

Oh! I almost forgot! I took the car for wheel alignment / balancing / rotation.

Maruti S-Cross : Official Review-img_20170701_171042.jpg

While I was there, I inquired about the tires that the horrible JKs can be swapped with.

Michelin P3ST at 7700
Turanza T0001 at 7300
Conti MC5 at 7100

and you get something for your JKs, more like 1000/tire. Being in the middle of GST implementation, they are not stocking P3STs or T0001 Stock expected by 7th.

He told me that the turanza should be imported from Japan, while the Conti's are made in India.

Maruti Suzuki sells 13,879 units in the utility segment (Gypsy / Ertiga / Brezza / S-Cross) in the month of June 2017.

May figure was 22,608. So, month on month a drop of ~40%. This purely because of the lesser dispatches on account of GST roll out.

June details below.

There are mouth watering discounts on top of 11.8 Lakhs in the form of corporate discount and exchange discounts. Remember, there was 40K off beginning of the year. As the facelift launch nears, it won't be surprising to see the price go down from 11.8 lakhs ex-showroom to closer to 11 lakhs. Those wanting a good bargain, just wait till Aug middle - Sep end to get a juicier deal

As the facelift nears, this difference is likely to go closer to a lakh. That is always the case with cars, is that not? The newly launched cars won't have discounts and as the facelift arrives, it will get cheaper. The manufacturers will surely skim the early buyers

The 1.4 Boosterjet is likely to replace the 1.6 as the top end S-cross. The 1.6 will likely get re-launched only if local manufacturing starts for the Jeep Renegade by FCA. It makes no economic sense for Maruti Suzuki to import the 1.6 engine and gear box and end up at 66% localization. It is not a 1.5 L engine and so no pricing benefits.

Agree. This is a top notch car. The scramble will probably become a mad rush as the facelift nears and more 40-50K discounts are offered

Am not a big fan of re-map. It renders the warranty void and more importantly is bad for the environment emissions and the engine.

There are definitely discounts available on top of this in the form of exchange discount and corporate discounts.

Would you mind divulging the source of your information / basis of your belief.

Surely 1.4 Boosterjet is very competent motor and would come to India at some point of time. But I am afraid its not feasible as soon as you expect it. Just to speculate, may be GST effect can make Maruti to revive 1.6 DDiS

Yes bang on. That will take the on road price closer to 14 lakhs and will be the car to buy at that price.
Unfortunately I will be in the market to buy a new car only next year and I am sure 1.6 won't be available then

I took a test drive yesterday and it blew me off again!!

Code 6 does a good work of tuning the ddis 200. There will be a better low end and the engine becomes more free revving. 0 to 100 comes in just under 11s. Adding a kn air filter will spice up things a bit more.

The source is the owner of a MS showroom in Karnataka. The S-cross is coming with a 1.4 Boosterjet per him and there are plans to produce both the 1.0 Boosterjet and 1.4 Boosterjet in India bringing down the costs.

The 1.6 does not make sense due to the following reasons:
  • It is > 1.5 and therefore higher duties apply same as the 2.0 Multijet
  • It is imported fully including gearbox resulting in 66% localization. It is not a model that scales for Suzuki in India
  • They have not introduced or planning to introduce 1.6 in Ciaz or any other model. This has no economies of scale
So GST will not make them think differently about 1.6. Only local production of 1.6 for the Jeep Renegade will cause them to change

Definitely 1.6 is the engine to buy. I am in the market for the facelift as well and the 1.6 may not be likely with the facelifted S-cross.
