The Maruti Suzuki S-Cross will be offered with two diesel powerplants. The first of these will be the familiar 1.3-litre (called DDiS 200), 90 PS motor that offers 200 Nm of torque and will come mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. This engine is credited with an ARAI-rated fuel economy figure of 23.65 km/l. Customers who like more performance from their S-Cross, can opt for the 1.6-litre (called DDiS 320) unit. This engine develops 120 PS of power and 320 Nm of twist, and it comes paired to a 6-speed manual transmission. This one gets an ARAI-rated fuel consumption figure of 22.7 km for every litre of diesel. Unlike the DDiS 200 motor, the DDiS 320 isn’t manufactured in India.
