India's largest carmaker, Maruti Suzuki has opened bookings for the new version of the S-Cross, which is slated for launch later this week.

The facelifted Maruti S-Cross can be booked for an initial amount of Rs 11,000 at any of the 280 plus Nexa showroom across India.

The new version of the Maruti S-Cross is available with a 1.3-litre diesel engine with the Smart Hybrid Vehicle from Suzuki (SHVS) technology, while the 1.6-litre diesel unit has been discontinued from the crossover.

On the top variant of the new Maruti S-Cross, the new headlights feature LED projectors and DRLs. The bonnet and the bumper are now chiselled to give the S-Cross a muscular look.

The central or the driver arm-rest receives a new leather finish. Additionally, the touchscreen infotainment system is now compatible with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

As mentioned earlier, Maruti Suzuki has decided to drop the 1.6-litre diesel unit, and the sole offering now comes with a 1248cc diesel unit with mild-hybrid technology. This unit is already available in Ciaz and the Ertiga, and it churns out 90bhp and 200Nm of torque.

The new Maruti Suzuki S-Cross will rival the likes of Hyundai Creta, Ford EcoSport, and even the newly launched Tata Nexon. With the mild-hybrid technology, the new S-Cross could cut the competition with its pricing, expected to be in the range of Rs 8 lakh to Rs 10 lakh.
