Maruti Suzuki today launched the new S-Cross and for the very first time, is powered by a Petrol engine – a good one that is. Nearly five years after its debut, the S-Cross now has a refined 1.5L K Series petrol engine under the hood, in BS6 avatar. Prices start from INR 8.39 lakhs (Sigma Variant) and goes all the way to INR 12.39 Lakh (Alpha Variant – Automatic).
Comments from Mr. Kenichi Ayukawa, Managing Director & CEO, Maruti Suzuki India Limited: “S-Cross holds an indispensable position in our NEXA portfolio, appreciated for its striking exteriors, elegant interiors, and strong road presence. Built on NEXA’s values of ‘Create. Inspire.’, the new S-Cross Petrol offers a powerful drive experience with refined performance. This is complemented by a dominating and authoritative design language along with feature-rich interiors. Appealing to the customers who strive for adventure and performance, the launch of the powerful all new S-Cross with 1.5 litre petrol engine and automatic variant will offer customers a delightful experience.”
While Maruti is known for having best in class petrol engines across segments, the S-Cross had to wait for about 5 years to get one. But, the engine promises to be an all rounder – delivering a peppy performance and a good efficiency. The 1.5L K Series engine develops a 103 bhp (77Kw) at 6000 rpm and 138 Nm at 4400 rpm. While the 5-Speed Manual transmission is a standard, we also have for the first time a 4-Speed automatic gearbox for those effortless city drives. There is not much of a difference in terms of fuel efficiency between the manual (18.55 Km/L) and the automatic gearbox(18.43 Km/L).
S-Cross petrol is equipped with the next generation Smart Hybrid system with li-ion dual battery system offering improved fuel efficiency, idle start-stop, torque assists functions and brake energy regeneration, in addition to providing optimal acceleration and performance.
