Maruti Suzuki India that recorded an impressive 13.9 per cent growth till December 2014, aims to do even better in 2015 riding on some new car launches. Maruti Suzuki India is planning to launch as many as 8 new cars, including facelifts and all new models, in 2015.
The company will enter some fast growing segments in India including the compact SUV, crossover and premium hatchback. Maruti Suzuki SX4 S-Cross will be the first all new product that the company will roll out in India. It was earlier expected to be launched in the first quarter of this calendar year, but its launch has now been pushed to the second quarter starting from April 2015.
Here’s a list of 5 things that you should know about the SX4 S-Cross.
1. The SX4 S-Cross will be the first ever crossover from Maruti Suzuki India.
2. The S-Cross is based on the SX4 hatchback, that never came to India. However, in some European markets, the hatchback was replaced by the crossover. That said, India will only get the crossover but with some design and mechanical changes.
4. Since the S-Cross will share its cabin with the Swift, expect a similar looking dashboard but in dual-shade.
5. The Indian version of the crossover is likely to be powered by a different set of engines when compared to its European counterpart. While the European version is available with 1.6-litre petrol and diesel motors, the Indian version might get a 1.3-litre, 92bhp, multijet diesel and a 1.4-litre petrol unit.
