Maruti Suzuki is gearing up for the launch of BS6 S-Cross petrol version. Ahead of its official launch, the Indo-Japanese carmaker has teased the arrival of the S-Cross petrol on its Nexa website. The BS6 compliant iteration of S-Cross petrol was showcased at this year's Auto Expo in February. With the diesel version of the crossover being discontinued, the carmaker is looking to fill up the gap with the petrol version. Likely to be launched soon, the S-Cross petrol is expected to retain its overall design with upgraded mechanicals and some feature additions.
Transmission duties on the S-Cross petrol are likely to be a 5-speed manual gearbox with an optional 4-speed torque converter automatic option. The 1.3-litre diesel engine, which was offered previously on the S-Cross has been discontinued by the manufacturer. The oil burner produced 89 bhp and 220 Nm of power figures.
The upcoming BS6 Maruti S-Cross petrol is expected to be offered with a coloured multi-information display that is also seen on the recently launched Maruti Dzire, Ertiga, Ciaz and Baleno. Apart from these, the car manufacturer could also offer its latest Infotainment system with smartphone apps on the new S-Cross petrol. The new BS6 Maruti S-Cross petrol will be priced slightly lower than the discontinued diesel version, which was priced at ₹ 8.8 lakh to ₹ 11.4 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). It will compete against the likes of Nissan Kicks & Renault Captur.
