The S-Cross couldn’t shake up the compact SUV segment the way Maruti would have liked it too, and still would like it to (Auto Expo 2016 : Maruti Suzuki S-Cross Limited Edition tries its best to look good), but a face-lift is on its way internationally.
Snapped during a product presentation in France, the S-Cross face-lift shows its new face. The S-Cross’s entire front fascia has been reworked upon in the face-lifted model, and in the process, the crossover gets a much needed ‘SUV-like’ appearance. The face-lift includes new headlamps with projectors, a new, more upright grille grille with vertical chrome slats, along with a redesigned bumper with chrome trims, and a bigger air dam. The bonnet is also new, and gets twin bulges. Changes to the rear end have’t been unearthed yet.
The interiors get a new infotainment system, an updated instrument cluster dials with new MID, new trim options for the dashboard, and new seat upholstery with contrast stitching. Mechanically, the S-Cross face-lift is expected to be powered by new range of Boosterjet petrol and diesel engines strapped to new a six-speed automatic transmission, while channelling power through Suzuki’s optional AllGrip all-wheel drive system.
