First unveiled at the Auto Expo 2020, the BS6 Maruti Suzuki S-Cross has been launched in India with a starting price of Rs 8.39 lakh (ex-showroom). Up until now, the S-Cross was sold with the option of only a diesel powertrain, but since Maruti Suzuki are removing most of their diesel engine options with the transition to BS6, the 2020 version is only offered with a BS6 compliant 1.5-litre petrol engine. Not to mention, the car also received some minor updates on the design front too.

Exterior Design: As you can see above, the BS6 Maruti Suzuki S-Cross gets a pair of restyled LED headlamps, bold chrome front grille and a more prominent bumper to give the car an aggressive face. There’s an abundant use of plastic cladding all around to complete the desired crossover/SUV-ish styling, while the brush-metal skid-plates highlight this further. The BS6 Maruti Suzuki S-Cross retains the overall silhouette of the outgoing model, but these minor changes give the crossover a refreshing appeal.

Cabin: The cabin has been given a slightly more premium touch with ample use of leather on the steering wheel, dashboard and the seats. There are a host of convenient features like an updated in-car entertainment with SmartPlay studio packed with a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system that is connected to the cloud. The system brings live traffic updates, voice recognition and access to curated online content through AHA radio via the Smartplay Studio App. Obviously, you get smartphone connectivity for seamless integration with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Features: Since the first S-Cross was introduced in India about five years ago, the mid-sized SUV/crossover segment has transformed drastically as newer players have entered and offered a huge list of safety and convenient features. Not surprisingly, the BS6 Maruti Suzuki S-Cross has also upped its game and now comes with auto-retracting outside rearview mirror (ORVM), auto-dimming and antiglare inside rearview mirror (IRVM), rear parking camera and gear shift indicator. The kit also includes automatic rain-sensing wipers, auto projector LED headlamps and cruise control. And as before, the cabin remains nice and spacious to seat for five occupants in comfort.

Safety: Powered by the NEXA Safety Shield, the BS6 Maruti Suzuki S-Cross Petrol comes with safety features such as dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, driver and co-driver seat belt reminder, rear parking assist, high-speed warning alert, reverse parking sensors and ISOFIX child seat restraint system. Thankfully, these safety features are standard across all variants to ensure complete safety of passengers. In fact, you’ll be happy to note that BS6 Maruti Suzuki S-Cross is compliant with safety norms including frontal offset crash, side-impact and pedestrian safety.

Engine: The BS6 Maruti Suzuki S-Cross uses a new mild-hybrid petrol engine with a next-generation smart hybrid system (SHVS). This is the same engine used in the Vitara Brezza and the Ciaz. The BS6-compliant, 1.5-litre, K15B petrol engine makes 105 hp at 6,000 rpm and a peak torque of 138 Nm at 4,400 rpm. This is expected to be mated to either a five-speed manual gearbox or a four-speed torque-convertor automatic transmission. Maruti Suzuki claim that the BS6 S-Cross manual can return 18.55 km/l, while the automatic offers fuel efficiency of 18.43 km/l.
