Maruti Suzuki had launched S-Cross crossover in August via newly-set up Nexa premium dealership. The car has been fetching healthy volumes for the company and to boost it further, the company reportedly launched a special edition christened as Premia in tier 1 cities.

An IndianAutosBlog report says the Premia is based on the DDiS 200 engine Delta mid-variant with added features such as alloy wheels, foglamps, reverse parking assist with a camera and a Garmin 5-inch display navigation system. The special edition has been priced at Rs 8.99 lakh (ex-showroom).

The rest of the features are identical to the regular Delta variant that comes with reverse parking sensors with display, Audio system with CD player, Bluetooth, auxiliary port and USB port, steering mounted audio controls.

The S-Cross is the maiden product from Nexa dealerships of India's largest car manufacturer. The S-Cross was launched at a price ranging from Rs 8.34 lakh to Rs 13.74 lakh with the option of two diesel engines. The 1.3-litre diesel motor churns out 89bhp power and 200Nm torque, and 1.6-litre diesel that is tuned to pump out 118bhp and 320Nm. The former engine is mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox, while the latter gets six-speed manual transmission.

Currently, Maruti has over 32 Nexa premium showrooms operational in the country and the number is expected to go beyond 100 in the near future. This will also boost the sales of the S-Cross.
