Maruti S-Cross Review

05 Aug, 2015 02:00 PM

Synopsis

The premium vehicle segment in India is growing on an alarming rate, with people preferring spending a few more rupees for better, safe and well-equipped cars. The introduction of new technologies into the automobile market has increased the competition between various brands for a better price for a premium feature on their car. Maruti Suzuki has also entered the segment with their premium crossover, the S-Cross. Priced from INR 8,34,000 for the DDiS200 and INR 11,99,000 for the DDiS320, the S-Cross is surely something new from the manufacturer.

The car is said to be an exception of the Maruti Suzuki's traditional point of view for Indian cars which makes it an attractive product with a bunch of new things we never had from the company. The only factor which makes it shine lesser than usual is the launch of Honda Jazz and Hyundai Creta before its entry into the Indian market, which surely will decrease the numbers. Let’s see what is has to offer above all the others present on the battlefield.

Exterior

The design of the S-Cross stays the same as its international version. It clearly shows the evolution from the first generation of SX4 sedan and feels quiet easy on the aggression point of view of the current crossovers. The front houses a not so good and not so bad looking twin lined chrome grill.

Truly saying, the fog lamp outlines are better looking than the headlight's LED light design and the skid plate suits the smooth looking cladding on the front. The headlight seems odd in the current time, with the other brands having much sharp and smart approach to the lights. The hood looks flat and overall looks are just average. Rear lights are impressive when compared to the other designing on the car. If looks are your preference, you won't be satisfied for sure.

Interior

The best part from Maruti Suzuki comes under this section of the car. The best interior which could have been provided by Maruti Suzuki till date comes in the S-Cross. The leather-full approach would be appreciated by most of its customers and the premium word starts fulfilling its definition as soon as you enter the car. From your first look to the last, the car seems to be fully loaded with technology on each phase.

Old Maruti Suzuki fellows may also get mistaken as if it’s really a Maruti, but the Suzuki symbol proudly rests on the center of the leather bathed steering wheel, making us remember that the times have changed. Everything has been automated by the company, defining the premium tag they have given to its car. Black is all around on the highest trim, making it the best looking interior from Maruti Suzuki.

Instrument Console

The console on the new S-Cross features technology loaded analogue and digital cluster. The left side has the tachometer, with a small analog temperature whereas the right comes with a speedometer with the fuel gauge. The needle magic has been improved with the blue lining around the circles, making it much more attractive than before. The center houses a display, which comes with multiple information modes like instant fuel economy, average fuel economy, trip distance, odometer, clock and outside temperature. Both the engines being diesel powered make the console same for both the variants.

Infotainment System

The part where Maruti Suzuki lacked the most seems to be a strong part in their premium S-Cross. The car features a fully touchscreen Smartplay infotainment system which comes with a 6-speaker system on the new S-Cross. The unit features touch sensitive buttons on both of its sides for volume, power, settings and home. The unit also comes with navigation, AUX, USB and smartphone integration. A full utility package is guaranteed by Maruti Suzuki with their premium cars and S-Cross has started a new way of life.

Engine & Performance

The S-Cross is offered in two different engine sizes, named as the DDiS 200 and DDiS 320. Both the numbers denote the torque figure developed by the respective engines. The first one is the 1.3 liter familiar diesel motor found in every Suzuki diesel car in India. The motor produces 88.8 BHP @ 4000 rpm and 200 NM @ 1750 rpm.

The engine is mated to the traditional 5-speed manual gearbox. The second engine is again a Fiat sourced motor, 1.6 L with 118 BHP and 320 NM of torque. This version comes with a six-speed manual gearbox. The AWD and automatic gearbox option has not been mentioned by Maruti Suzuki. Both the engines are trusted units with a lot of practicality as both return a company claimed mileage of above 20 kmpl.

Comfort

The comfort of the passengers has been counted first by the company this time. The car features fully automatic temperature control for better rides in all weather conditions. It comes with a lot of legroom, which has been missing in most of the Maruti Suzuki offerings till date. Ingress and Egress is very easy for the new S-Cross, raising its practical abilities.

The electrically fold-able and adjustable outside mirrors adds to the charm with its all electric windows. The car comes with rear wiper and washer, with defogger for ease in rainy seasons. All the features have been integrated into the steering wheel and the S-Cross also features cruise control for better and comfortable riding. The armrests for both the seats make it feel premium and this time, the list has been improved very effectively by the company.

Safety

The safety factor gets an update too this time. The car comes with front and rear disc brakes for better braking and enhanced safety is added by the provision of ABS to it. S-Cross comes with dual front airbags for improved safety in the times of collision. The parking sensors and reverse parking camera makes it easy to manoeuvre in tight spaces and a better 205/60-16 tyres have been provided for a better grip on road. These features add up to the peace of mind of passengers and the car proves its practicality once again.

Variants and Shades

The car comes with a new naming strategy from Maruti Suzuki, naming the vehicle as Sigma, Delta, Zeta and Alpha instead of the LDi, VDi and ZDi. The new S-Cross comes in 8 variants, with 5 belonging to the DDiS 200 family and 3 to the DDiS 320 family. Sigma model comes with a Sigma (O) model also, both of which are available in the 1.3 L engine variant only. The shades available in the premium crossover are Blue, Grey, Silver, Brown and White. The cladding remains common on all the shades.

Ex-showroom Price

The new S-Cross is starting from INR 8,34,000 and go a long way up to INR 13,74,000 out of which the DDiS320 engine starts at INR 11,99,000. The top variant of the 320 family (Alpha) is the most performance and feature loaded version of the car with the 200 Alpha being the most economical and feature loaded option. The car has made its way on the 5th August 2015. It will be only available through Nexa showrooms, making its availability limited to certain points of sale initially.
