Rumour: Maruti S-Cross could be discontinued this year

Maruti's new SUV (codenamed: YFG) could replace the S-Cross in the Indian market.

Maruti Suzuki and Toyota are jointly developing two new SUVs to take on the likes of the Hyundai Creta and Kia Seltos. Maruti's version codenamed: YFG, will be positioned above the Brezza and could replace the S-Cross.

According to a new report, Maruti's new SUV could debut this festive season. It would be manufactured at Toyota's Bidadi plant, alongside the D22, which is rumoured to be called the Hyryder.

Both SUVs are said to be based on the localized version of Toyota's TNGA-B platform. It is also said that the biggest differentiating factor between these SUVs and the Hyundai Creta would be their self-charging hybrid powertrain.

That being said, there has been no official word from Maruti Suzuki regarding its plans for the S-Cross.
