Maruti's upcoming SX4 S-Cross has been spotted on test once again, this time revealing the interiors of the new crossover.

Maruti's new crossover SX4 S-Cross has been undergoing testing in the country for a while now and the auto-enthusiasts in India surely will have a clear picture of what to expect on the arrival of this new vehicle.

The latest spy shots of Maruti SX4 S-Cross come from a member of automotive forum Team-BHP and this time the spy shots have something more to tell the auto lovers in the country who have been wanting to see the interior of the crossover.

The test mule seen here sports a similar interior styling, which we saw at Delhi Auto Expo. The dashboard of the SX4 S-Cross is seen donned in all black colour with silver linings around the AC vents, centre console and audio system.

The steering wheel of the vehicle looks normal like any other Maruti car and what is interesting is that the test mule missed out on the features like steering-mounted controls, climate control and start/stop button.

It is not sure if the prototype photographed here is a base variant of the Maruti's new crossover, however, it is expected that the top-end model of the SX4 S-Cross will house these features.

SX4 S-Cross, the crossover, which is already on sales in a few of the international market is likely to reach Indian shores in 2015. In Europe, the car is sold with 1.6 litre petrol engine, which can churn out 120PS peak power and 156Nm peak torque and 1.6 litre MultiJet engine, capable of generating 120PS and 320Nm torque.

But in India, the power is expected to come from 1.6-litre diesel engine, which can churn out a power of 118bhp with a peak torque of 32kgm. As for the transmission, expect the six-speed manual gearbox to do the work in the Indian model. The global model of the crossover is offered with Suzuki's AllGrip all-wheel-drive system, but the same is unlikely to make it to India as the cost is a serious concern.

From the visual stand-point, the Maruti Suzuki SX4 S-Cross is likely to get features like LED daytime-running lights, 16-inch alloy wheels, scuff plates and black-cladding. Once it's in the sub-continent market, SX4 S-Cross will fight out with Renault Duster, Ford EcoSport and Nissan Terrano and the chances are that Maruti will price its new offering at ₹13 lakh.
