Rumour: Maruti S-Cross Petrol BS6 launch post lockdown

According to a media report, the Maruti Suzuki S-Cross Petrol BS6 is likely to be launched only after the lockdown is lifted.

Initially, the S-Cross Petrol was scheduled to be launched in March, this year. But, the launch was deferred due to the Covid-19 lockdown. Later, there were rumours suggesting that the car might be launched in the month of May. However, with infections on the rise, it seems unlikely that the government would lift the lockdown completely anytime soon.

The S-Cross is expected to be offered with a 1.5-litre petrol engine with a mild-hybrid system. It produces 103 BHP @ 6,000 rpm and 138 Nm @ 4,400 rpm. Maruti Suzuki might offer a 5-speed manual transmission in the S-Cross as standard, while a 4-speed automatic gearbox could be available as an option.
