The mid-cycle refresh of the Maruti Suzuki S-Cross is here and it is all set to renew its rivalry with its arch-rival, the Hyundai Creta. Renault will also drive in the Captur into this equation, further intensifying this competition.

With the facelift, Maruti has tried to spruce up the S-Cross’ appearance, which was a little bland before, and it now offers more goodies as well. Let us see which variant suits you the best.  

Maruti Suzuki S-Cross Facelift


  • Maruti has ditched the 1.6-litre diesel engine (DDiS 320: 120PS/ 320Nm, 6-speed manual) with the S-Cross facelift and now only offers the relatively underpowered 1.3-litre diesel (DDiS 200: 90PS/ 200Nm, 5-speed manual)

  • The 1.3-litre diesel gets Suzuki’s SHVS mild-hybrid tech, same as the Ciaz and the Ertiga, which comes with engine start-stop system, brake energy regeneration and torque assist function 

  • Courtesy the SHVS system, the overall fuel efficiency of the S-Cross DDiS 200 has gone up from 23.65kmpl to 25.1kmpl

  • Though the international-spec facelift saw the debut of the Boosterjet series – 1.0-litre/ 1.4-litre turbo petrols – there’s no word from Maruti regarding a petrol option in the S-Cross 

  • It is available in four trim levels –  Sigma (base), Delta, Zeta and the Alpha (range-topping) – same as before 

  • Boot space (353-litres) and ground clearance (180mm) remain unaltered

Maruti Suzuki S-Cross Facelift

Overall, Maruti has certainly offered something for everyone in each of the variants, though, going by specs alone, the Zeta comes out to be the most value for money offering. The pre-facelift Maruti Suzuki S-Cross 1.3-litre DDiS 200 was priced in the range of Rs 7.94 - 10.55 lakh (ex-showroom, New Delhi). And since the 1.6-litre DDiS 320 diesel engine (was priced at Rs 11.66 lakh) has been discontinued, the updated S-Cross is expected to be priced more or less in the same range as there aren't many changes except for the mild hybrid tech.
