Interiors – The S-Cross is a flagship car for Maruti, and it’s interior shows. The all-black dashboard with satin chrome accents and the hexagonal shaped centre console are all similar to the pre-facelifted model. The leather-wrapped steering wheel features buttons for audio and cruise control. The use of soft-touch plastics adds to the premium feel in the cabin. The SmartPlay touchscreen infotainment system takes care of music needs and gets Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity. The instrument cluster dials get minor tweaks. The crossover comes with features like automatic climate control, automatic headlamps, rain-sensing wipers, reverse parking camera and gear shift indicator.
The cabin of the S-Cross feels better than before and has plenty of space too
The switches carried over from the Swift and Dzire still continue to feature in the facelifted S-Cross. The instrument cluster is easy to read. The large door pockets, magazine pockets and other utility spaces add to better ergonomics of the cabin. Maruti is offering leather seats on the facelifted S-Cross which offer very good support. However, where the S-Cross surprises us is in the rear seat space. There is enough legroom, headroom and the under-thigh support is good too. Surprisingly there are still no rear AC vents being offered.
The boot space remains identical to the pre-facelifted car at 375-litres and is very usable and taking luggage in and out is very easy thanks to the low loading bay. The rear seats spilt fold in 60:40 ratio, in case, you need additional cargo space.
