The introduction of a petrol powertrain has made the S-Cross cheaper by up to Rs 50,000 as compared to the BS4 version

  • The S-Cross gets a petrol engine and an automatic option for the first time.

  • Maruti offers the S-Cross petrol in four variants: Sigma, Delta, Zeta and Alpha.

  • It comes with a 1.5-litre petrol motor (105PS/138Nm) with mild-hybrid tech as seen on the Vitara Brezza.

  • The only feature addition is Maruti’s latest 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system.

  • Key rivals include the Renault Duster, Nissan Kicks, Kia Seltos and Hyundai Creta.

After being delayed by almost half a year due to the ongoing pandemic, the Maruti S-Cross petrol has finally been launched today. It is available in the same variant lineup as its BS4 version: Sigma, Delta, Zeta and Alpha. Here’s a look at the revised price list:

The introduction of a petrol engine means that the Maruti crossover costs Rs 42,000 less than the earlier base-spec diesel variant. As evident from the above table, the automatic gearbox is available on all variants except for the base-spec Sigma.

Here are the performance details of the new petrol powertrain compared to the earlier diesel powertrain:

Maruti had ditched the 1.3-litre diesel motor for the BS6 era and has fitted the 2020 S-Cross with the same 1.5-litre petrol engine (with mild-hybrid tech) offered on the facelifted Vitara Brezza. However, unlike the Brezza, the S-Cross features the mild-hybrid tech with both the manual and automatic transmission options. This tech also adds auto start-stop, helping the S-Cross deliver a claimed fuel efficiency of 18.55kmpl (manual) and 18.43kmpl (automatic).

In terms of features and comforts, it comes with the same equipment list as the BS4 version. This includes rain-sensing wipers, cruise control, LED projector headlamps and 16-inch alloy wheels. The only change is the introduction of Maruti’s latest 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. It also gets Suzuki Connect for vehicle telematics but it continues to miss out on connected car tech that’s offered in rivals like the Hyundai Creta and Kia Seltos. The colour options remain the same as before too: blue, grey, silver, white, and brown.

The S-Cross continues to go up against the Kia Seltos, Hyundai Creta, Nissan Kicks, Renault Duster, and Mahindra Scorpio. It will also compete with the Skoda VISION IN and Volkswagen Taigun SUVs once they arrive in early-2021.
