Maruti Suzuki S-Cross is the most premium car from the manufacturer and was the first car to be sold in an exclusive series of dealerships under the brand “Nexa”. While the S-Cross doesn’t sell as well as its competitors, it still manages to return a monthly sales figure of 2,500 units which is good enough for a vehicle at its price point. S-Cross is based on the SX-4 platform that was once sold as a sedan in the Indian market. However, the updated cross body style was more successful for Maruti, as the sedan version hardly made a big impact in its class. Initially. The S-Cross was initially not as well-received as other Maruti models, but the major change in 2018 has already done wonders to improve sales figures. The 2020 S-Cross didn’t receive any kind of update that differentiates it from the 2018 model. All variants are powered by the very dated 1.3-liter Fiat-sourced Multijet engine, which produces 89 bhp of power and 200 nm of torque. As part of the 2020 update, the all-new 2020 S-Cross gets a 1.5-liter BS6 compliant petrol engine with smart hybrid technology. The S-Cross price range in India starts at Rs. 8.8 lakh for the base Sigma variant and goes all the way up to Rs. 11.43 lakhs for the top-end Alpha variant.
