The BS6 Maruti S-Cross petrol will launch by next month. Earlier, the crossover was scheduled to launch this month but its introduction has got delayed due to the ongoing situation
India’s biggest car manufacturer Maruti Suzuki is on top if we talk about updating the BS4 models to meet the new BS6 emission norms. The carmaker has completely discarded their diesel motors, and now, the vehicles are only offered with petrol and CNG powertrains. Maruti recently launched the 2020 Vitara Brezza with BS6 petrol motor as the automaker discontinued the BS4 diesel engine sold earlier. The upcoming S-Cross wil get the same BS6 petrol powerplant.
Earlier this year, it was rumoured that the S-Cross petrol would debut at the 2020 Auto Expo but the carmaker instead presented the outgoing version. Next, reports emerged that the new model would launch this month, but, again, that isn't the case owing to the ongoing unfavourable circumstances. However, it's now likely that the new model will launch next month.
Once launched, it’ll compete with the likes of Renault Duster, Hyundai Creta and Kia Seltos. The new Maruti S-Cross will get propelled by a 1.5-litre four-cylinder petrol engine, which churns out 105bhp of max. power and 138 Nm of peak torque. Transmission duties will be done by a 5-speed manual or a 4-speed torque converter automatic gearbox. The same motor does duties in Maruti Ciaz, Ertiga and XL6. Earlier, the crossover was offered with a 1.3-litre oil-burner paired with a manual gearbox. The updated model will also be offered with Maruti’s Smart Hybrid Technology for better fuel efficiency. Styling of the 2020 Maruti S-Cross will remain intact.
Maruti will launch the new BS6 S-Cross petrol as soonas the lcokdown lifts
The crossover will feature the same 10-slat chrome grille, projector headlamps with elegant looking LED DRLs, faux skid plate, two-tone alloy wheels and much more. Inside, the car will come loaded with features like a touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, cruise control, steering mounted controls and leather upholstery. The updated BS6 petrol S-Cross is expected to be more affordable than the diesel model.
