Maruti Suzuki, the country's largest car maker's first offering in the crossover segment is here. The premium crossover S-Cross made its India debut on 5 August.
A little About Nexa showrooms
The S- cross is not just the company's first crossover but also the first model the automaker will sell through the recently launched Nexa Premium Showrooms, a revolutionary concept of selling and buying Maruti's top end vehicles.
The latest destination for Maruti's premium offerings heralds the company's transformation from 'a budget car maker' to a key player in the premium car market in the country. The new S-cross will be the first car to be sold through Nexa, although Maruti's hatchback YRA and Ciaz will also be showcased at the Nexa Premium Showrooms.
Currently, 30 Nexa Premium Showrooms are operational and the numbers are expected to go beyond 100 outlets in the near future. Surprisingly, the auto car maker has done away with the nomenclature Maruti, and the models showcased at Nexa only don the Suzuki badge. How this works in repositioning the brand is something only time will tell.
S-Cross, the latest Crossover in the Indian market
S-Cross is offered only in diesel engine options. New S-Cross is available with two diesel engine options -- 200 DDiS 1.3-litre diesel motor that can churn out 89bhp of power and 200Nm of torque, and 320 DDiS 1.6-litre diesel that is tuned to pump out 118bhp and 320Nm of torque.
While the DDiS 200 engine comes paired to a 5-speed manual gearbox, the latter gets six-speed manual transmission
