Maruti S-Cross discontinued, removed from the website
Maruti has removed the S-Cross from the official website of Nexa which means it has been discontinued from the market. It was first launched in 2015 as Nexa’s first and flagship product.
Initially the car was available with Fiat sourced 1.3-lite and 1.6-litre diesel engine options. Before the BS6 emission norms got implemented in India, it got a new 1.5-litre K-Series mild-hybrid petrol engine. Back then it competed with the Renault Duster, Hyundai Creta and the likes.
Both the diesel engine options came with manual transmission only. The petrol engine was offered with both manual and automatic. Since launch, it sold 1.69 lakh units in India.
It has now transferred the flagship crown to the newly launched Maruti Grand Vitara. It gets a completely new design language and a long list of features on offer. Available in two engine options – 1.5-litre K-Series NA petrol and 1.5-litre strong hybrid engine.
The Grand Vitara has already received over 60,000 bookings. It has a waiting period of over 28 weeks. Last month, Maruti sold around 4770 units of the car.
