The S-Cross offers immense practicality and space along with Maruti’s outstanding reliability

As of now, I’m very happy with the S-Cross. The crossover has some irritants like the turbo lag but otherwise, it is a very good car. The facelifted model comes with some cosmetic changes that really uplift the appeal of the car and some non-petrolhead friends of mine even commented that the front now looks a wee bit similar to the new BMW X1. I plan to keep the S-Cross to myself and not share it with any of my colleagues because I know all of them like it, but let’s see, we also have a Honda WR-V long termer now, which is essentially in the same segment as the S-Cross.

The S-Cross doesn’t get the 1.6-litre engine anymore

What’s Cool

* Excellent ride quality and suspension setup for Indian roads
* Fuel efficient engine
* Spacious and feature-loaded interiors
* Maruti’s reliability and wide service network
What’s Not So Cool

* Turbo lag below 2000 RPM
* Infotainment system has some niggles
