The Maruti Suzuki S-Cross received a brand new lease of life with its facelift in 2017 and as we reported earlier, the S-Cross is likely to get Suzuki’s new 1.5-litre diesel engine within the coming months (though the S-Cross 1.5 diesel won't be on sale for too long). What’s at all times been lacking from the S-Cross' line-up, is a petroleum engine. Going by data we’ve received from our sources, Maruti is lastly seeking to plug the hole within the S-Cross line-up with a brand new petrol-powered model.
The petrol engine will probably be Suzuki’s new Okay15B unit that already powers the updated Ciaz and second-gen Ertiga. This naturally aspirated 1.5-litre engine makes 105hp and 138Nm of torque. Additionally on board will probably be Suzuki’s Good Hybrid system with a dual-battery setup, as seen on the Ciaz petrol. The hybrid tech might assist the petrol S-Cross ship some spectacular gasoline financial system numbers. A 5-speed handbook gearbox will probably be customary and there’s buzz of a Four-speed automated as effectively – the identical tried-and-tested unit that’s seen on many different Maruti fashions.
This S-Cross is internationally accessible with a selection of petrol and diesel engines that embrace a 1.Zero-litre turbo-petrol, a 1.Four-litre turbo-petrol and a 1.6-litre diesel; the latter was accessible in India on the pre-facelift mannequin. That is the primary time the S-Cross will include a naturally aspirated petrol engine.
In India, the S-Cross 1.5 petrol will rival the petrol variations of the Hyundai Creta, Nissan Kicks and Renault Captur. Count on the Maruti S-Cross petrol to launch within the latter a part of the 12 months.
