If emerging reports on the web hold any truth, Maruti Suzuki's upcoming SX4 S-Cross -- supposedly called 'Across' -- will make an appearance at the International Indian Film Academy Awards (IIFA), which is scheduled to kick-start in the first week of June at Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
A report in Indian Autos Blog says that the India specific S-Cross aka Across will be shown at the IIFA on 7 June. Maruti S-Cross is expected to mark the company's entry into the crossover market and was first seen at Delhi Auto Expo, 2014. The S-Cross from Maruti's stable is likely to be launched officially in India by mid-2015.
Under the hood, Maruti S-Cross is expected to get 1.3-litre diesel and 1.6-litre diesel engines. The 1.6-litre diesel engine will have the capacity to churn out a power of 118bhp with a peak torque of 32kgm and the transmission is likely to come from a six-speed manual gearbox.
The expected features include projector headlamps and Daytime Running LEDs, 16-inch alloy wheels, scuff plates, black-cladding, multi-function steering wheel, SmartPlay infotainment and keyless entry.
Expected to be priced around ₹8 lakh, Maruti SX4 S- Cross will be competing against the likes of Renault Duster, Ford EcoSport and Nissan Terrano when launched in India.
