    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.
