New Delhi, August 5, 2015: Car market leader, Maruti Suzuki India Limited presented India its first premium cross-over, S-CROSS here today. Its bold cross-over looks, premium interiors and rich features enable the S-CROSS to stand out. It is offered in two diesel engine options: DDiS 200 and DDiS 320. The combination of massive torque, power and superior ride and handling is bound to delight customers. By offering power and performance, and the comfort and refinement of a sedan, S-CROSS creates the new category of "premium cross-over" in India.

S-CROSS will be the first model to be retailed exclusively through NEXA, the new automotive experience launched recently.

Clearly, S-CROSS is above the ordinary!

Dedicating S-CROSS, India's first premium cross-over, to customers, Mr. Kenichi Ayukawa, Managing Director & CEO, Maruti Suzuki said, "There is a segment of customers in India who want power and performance in their vehicle, but also the comfort and refinement of a sedan. It is in that spirit today, we are launching S-CROSS. Built on a brand new platform, its bold cross-over shape, dynamic character lines and many sophisticated touches contribute to its distinct look and emotional appeal. The interiors are plush, upmarket and spacious with high quality fit and finish and top notch features. Powered by DDiS200 & DDiS320, S-CROSS will delight customers with its massive torque, power and superior ride and handling."

He added: "But words alone do not do justice to the S-CROSS. It has to be experienced. I invite customers to test drive and experience S-CROSS first hand."

Distinctive Cross-Over Contours: S-CROSS comes with unique cross-over poise and design. The S-CROSS design embodies the three key themes of emotion, quality and aerodynamics. A characteristic and bold crossover shape, dynamic and strong character lines, emotionally appealing styling and several sophisticated touches, all combine to create a highly distinctive look for the S-CROSS. The characteristic Suzuki grille with the "S" emblem, with HID (High Intensity Discharge) Projector Headlamps lends a distinctive crossover flavour to the design. The side body side cladding and skid plate garnishes at the frontside and the rear, raised bonnet, premium integrated roof rails accentuate the cross-over looks of the S-Cross. The rear is as impressive as the front with split type tail-lamps and the upright stance.

A Rich, Premium and Quiet Cabin: The rich, premium and spacious cabin makes the S-CROSS distinctive. The plush dark interior colour scheme, design language expressed through flowing surfaces and liberal use of high quality surface finishes like silver ornamentation add to the overall classy fit and finish of the cabin. The equipment list in the interiors comprising multi information display, twin dial instrument cluster features blue lighting, while the rest of the controls sport a soothing amber back-lighting. The navigation system, smart play infotainment system, steering mounted controls and abundant space for all passengers make travelling in the S-CROSS a delight. Above all, several acoustic insulations and absorption materials are effectively positioned around the cabin and engine room to keep it quiet.

Power packed ride & performance: Under the hood are two engine options: DDiS 200 and DDiS 320. Powered with Variable Geometry Turbocharger (VGT) DDiS 200 & DDiS 320 ensures high performance. Besides, VGT gives optimal forced induction by controlling the flow of exhaust gases in accordance with the engine speed, thereby helping to release high torque, low fuel consumption and low emissions. The DDiS 200 generates optimum power of 66 kW@4000rpm and delivers maximum torque of 200 Nm @ 1750 rpm.
