The Maruti Suzuki S-Cross has been around for a while now is all set to get its first comprehensive upgrade in the market. Ahead of its launch tomorrow, the Indian car-maker has released details of the S-Cross facelift unveiling all the big changes that were probable on the model. Unlike the outgoing model which was reworked when it was introduced in India, the face lifted version carries over several details from the Euro-spec model and gets a host of aesthetic changes. In addition, the new S-Cross gets changes under the hood, missing one of its diesel engine. Here are all the changes on the new S-Cross facelift. The Maruti Suzuki S-Cross facelift gets a bold new design language intended for a brawnier look on the crossover. The two-slat grille has been substituted by the upright stacked chrome induced version, flanked by the reworked headlamps. The revised headlights also carry new signature LED daytime running lights with projector lamps, which will be reserved to the top Alpha variants. There is also a burly looking bumper with sharp lines, while the bumper is all new and gets a brushed silver done faux diffuser and black plastic cladding.
Like the current version, the black cladding runs across the lower belt-line that extends to the rear bumper as well. Changes to the side aren’t extensive, but you do get wider 215/60 R16 tyres and new alloy wheel design too with a dual-tone finish. At the rear, the Maruti Suzuki S-Cross facelift sports minimal changes including revised LED taillights with re-arranged brake lights. The Maruti Suzuki S-Cross facelift gets basic fluctuations to the cabin for an upmarket finish. There is a new satin chrome finish and soft touch materials used on the dashboard, while the center console gets a piano black finish. The design for the seats is new as well and you get a leather finished support on the updated model. On the feature front, the touchscreen infotainment system has been retained on the model and comes with Apple Car Play as well as Android Auto. Under the hood, the new S-Cross facelift is now accessible only with the 1.3-litre diesel engine. The Fiat-sourced 1.6-litre has been stopped from the line-up, which is just sad. Instead, the 1.3-litre engine badged as the DDiS 200 now comes with smart hybrid technology, which includes idle-stop start, torque assist, brake energy regeneration system and a gearshift indicator.
