Maruti Suzuki launched the S-Cross a while ago, however, the sales have been dwindling in recent times. Now the Japanese-based automobile manufacturer has commenced testing of the All-Wheel Drive (AWD) S-Cross variant.
S-Cross AllGrip variant made its Indian debut at the Raid de Himalaya and Desert Storm events. Both events are extremely challenging on the driver and well as the vehicle. Maruti Suzuki was perhaps testing the model for Indian use.
Apparently, Maruti Suzuki will not be launching the S-Cross AllGrip variant in India. The Japanese-based manufacturer could explore options of exporting the S-Cross from India. Currently, the Suzuki S-Cross AllGrip is on sale in the European market.
Under the hood of Indian S-Cross is an optional 1.6-litre and 1.3-litre diesel engine. Both engines are mated to manual transmissions. Unfortunately, Maruti Suzuki does not offer an automatic transmission in the S-Cross, which has affected overall sales a bit.
