An Indian Autos Blog report claimed the company has confirmed the launch of the S-Cross for early August, but did not divulge the exact date. 

The S-Cross crossover from Maruti Suzuki will take on the likes of Renault Duster and Ford EcoSport in India.

Maruti S-Cross, the first crossover of the company, will include a 200 DDiS 1.3-litre diesel motor, which can churn out 89bhp of power and 200Nm of torque, and a 320 DDiS 1.6-litre diesel that is tuned to pump out 118bhp and 320Nm of torque in the engine line-up.

To be available in eight variants and five body paints, S-Cross will house features such as smartplay infotainment system, rear centre armrest, LED positioning lamps, driver airbag, keyless entry, electrically adjustable ORVMs, tilt-adjustable steering and reverse parking sensor.

Bookings for the new S-Cross are on. When launched, the model will be sold through the company's Nexa premium dealerships.
