Maruti Suzuki will launch the new S-Cross in India on September 28, 2017. Bookings for the Maruti S-Cross facelift have already begun at the 280+ Nexa dealerships in India for a booking amount of Rs 11,000. Maruti Suzuki has now started teasing the S-Cross facelift on its website. Along with teasing the Maruti Suzuki S-Cross facelift on its website, Maruti also has an image of the SHVS 200 DDiS engine. The new Maruti Suzuki S-Cross facelift will be available with the lone 90PS 1.3-litre diesel engine coupled with the Smart Hybrid Vehicle System that's already in use on the Maruti Ciaz and Ertiga. Maruti Suzuki has discontinued the 1.6-litre Multijet diesel engine as buyers were not really keen on paying extra for that particular trim. There will also be no petrol engine available with the Maruti S-Cross facelift. Given that the government of India has increased the cess on electric and hybrid vehicles, it remains to be seen how Maruti Suzuki prices the new S-Cross facelift. We expect the Maruti S-Cross to be priced starting at around Rs 8.6 lakh with the current model being priced at Rs 8.20 lakh ex-Mumbai.

Changes to the new Maruti Suzuki S-Cross facelift includea busier looking front with aggressive bits. This can be seen with the new headlights and the larger chrome treated grille. Even the bumper has got more contours, giving a stronger profile. The side and the rear do look reminiscent of what we have seen in the existing S-Cross. Inside, the cabin is expected to get premium additions in the form of new trims and an updated layout. Similar to the new age Maruti Suzuki cars, the 2017 S-Cross facelift too will come equipped with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity options.
We will have the launch, drive and full image gallery of the new S-Cross right here on September 28. Stay tuned
