New Maruti S-Cross Vs Old S-Cross – What’s The Difference?

New Maruti S Cross Vs Old S Cross

Here is a spec based comparison between the new Maruti Suzuki S-Cross and the old S-Cross.

In a bid to benefit from the robust demand for compact SUVs in India, Maruti has launched a mid-life facelift of the S-Cross. Changes on the facelift include aesthetic updates, additional kit and Maruti’s mild SHVS technology. While the model still misses out on the petrol unit like its predecessor, the 1.6-litre oil burner has also been dropped. The tried and tested 1.3-litre oil burner, which powers most of Maruti cars, has been bestowed with Maruti’s SHVS technology. With these changes, the new S-Cross seems to have improved, while we still need to see if the facelift could turn out to be a saviour for the compact SUV. To find out how what additional features/changes does the new S-Cross offer over the previous model, we bring you a spec-based comparison between the previous model and new facelift.
