Must Read Questions & Answers Before Buying S-Cross 2017-2020

Q. I have purchased S cross petrol manual high-end version. It has done 4000 kms (city) so far and it's mileage is 11.8 kmpl. Does it increase in mileage?
  • Maruti Suzuki S-Cross has an ARAI claimed mileage of 18.43 kmpl. In order to get better fuel efficiency returns from your car, there are some points that you can keep in mind while riding such as keeping a check on tyre air pressure, timely service your car, maintain proper gear to RPM ratio, do not accelerate the car unnecessarily, ride your car at economical speeds, etc.
Q. Is S-Cross going to be discontinued by Maruti?
  • As of now, there is no such update available from the brand's end. Stay tuned with ZigWheels for further updates.
Q. Is it worth to buy S Cross Zeta now?
  • S-Cross is powered by 1.5-litre, four-cylinder engine assisted by the Smart Hybrid tech that makes 105PS at 6000rpm and 138Nm of torque at 4400rpm. The strength of this engine is its refinement and ability to pick up speeds in a linear manner. It even sounds just the way a petrol engine should: smooth and refined. Until you reach 3000rpm, you can barely hear it inside the cabin. Vibrations too are kept well under control and this motor is as smooth as you’d want your daily driver petrol to be. Brakes of the S-Cross are impressive in the city and offer a good bite and feel from the paddle. Another big strength of this engine is its ability to pick up speeds from a low rpm. When you go for a smooth overtake, the engine with its 138Nm of torque and mild electric assist lets you surf that wave and make for swift acceleration. While this engine is relatively new, this transmission has been around for ages. That is one of the major reasons why the S-Cross’s drive lacks excitement. Summing up the S-Cross is simple. It’s a good looking car, with great practicality, available at a price which does make it bang for the buck. For a better understanding of compatibility and driving comfort, we would suggest you to take a test drive. Follow the link and select your desired city for dealership.
More Questions
Q. Eco sport or S-Cross which is a good buy as my preferances are mileage, build quality & features - EcoSport?
  • S-Cross provides more mileage than Ecosport. Even though the mileage of Ecosport is rather good. On highway I usually achieve a mileage of 21+ kmpl and in city - 17kmpl minimum. The USP's of ecosport over S-cross is it's shere build quality, toughness, features and driving experience. The driving experience is dull when compared to Ecosport which is best in the segment. I have driven both the cars side by side , and if a minimum mileage difference is not a very major concern then go for Ecosport. Otherwise space is what you wish for in the backseat go for S-Cross.
  • Please go for Ecosport. On Cost and Safety, it's is much better than S-Cross. Ecosport Diesel has 1498cc engine with power of 98.96bhp@3750rpm while S-Cross Diesel has only 1248cc with power of 88.5bhp@4000rpm Ground clearance of Ecosport is 200mm which is better than S-Cross with 180mm. Driving experience of Ecosport is better than S-Cross. And Ecosport is slightly cheaper than S-Cross.
  • See zigwheels comment on ecosport...its worth ..petrol has 3 cylinder engine with amt too..diesel powerful ..ambient variant is too good compared to s cross...abs ..ebd..curtain airbags ..so its 2020 bs6 ecosport.

Q. Is it worth buying a s cross - S-Cross?
  • Having driven the S Cross diesel 1.3L mild hybrid for 30k kms, I can say it's got superior ride quality, Suzuki reliability, decent mileage of 19-21 kmpl with a mix of city and highway driving (depends on h/w - City ratio, gives more on highways with sensible driving) and low maintenance costs when you compare it to a similar category vehicle. You can't race in it but it still gives decent performance once the engine is set and it opens up. The smaller engine does strain when on a full load (5 ppl + luggage+ AC) but it can handle it. Newer versions (BS6) should now be even better to drive.
  • If you are looking for a good ride quality, space for 5, a good mileage and low cost of maintenance in a car, S-cross is definitely the choice to go for. creta on that price point is not a value for money car compared to the S-cross. again Xuv 300 on the other other hand is sub 4m compact SUV while S-cross is a larger car with larger seating space and boot size.
  • Sure you can opt for s cross since it's from Maruti stable pretty good with performance style and substance. I stay and drive in the hills and the car is pretty good in plains it will be a breeze

    I am a professional driver and having total car driving experience of 13 years in my life. I am writing this review about my S-Cross (Delta) by Maruti Suzuki at 24000 km (2 years and 5 months)First of all, I would suggest not to waste your valuable money in this car. If your budget is around 10 lacks, in the market there are few cars which you have to find out and make your car experience worth. Coming to the point : Cons : 1. According to body, the 1.3 ltr engine is not capable. But you know that Maruti has (EK hi Khet ki Muli) only n only 1.3 lts diesel engine whether it is any diesel car. When car is fully loaded with 5 person and luggage at backside, the power and pickup is really very weak. 2. The body : This car's body is like a PAPER. That mean not safe at all on highway, after all it is all about our life safety and if the car has a body like a PAPER, you can think about. The iron material which company has used in this car is worst. The Fiber material is like a scrap which they have used in a new condition. Car Jack kit is not user friendly at all. 3. All glasses (Front, rear and all other windows) are also very slim. 4. The horn is very very very light. According to body and price, company should have given a good quality horn which can be used on highway and everywhere.5. Handbrake is just like a toy. Not useful at all on slope. 6. Dashboard material also very weak compared to other companies. Not safe at all. 7. The material is very light weight and cheap so that overall car weight is also lowest according to body size. 8. The same KEY for all maruti cars. If you buy alto in 3 lacks then also the same key will be given. Not giving that personality (Seems DESI). 9. For better driving, steering grip with horn should be more comfortable for drivers. Here it is not. --------------------------------------------------------Pros : 1. Good boot space. Can keep more luggage very easily. 2. Good braking system (All Tyre disk brakes)3. Mileage is OK. 15-16 in city and 20-21 on highway (with AC)4. Very specious from every angle. Space makes journey peaceful.5. Engine is good only after shifting to 5th gear. 6. 50 Ltr Diesel tank which is good for long journey.7. The music system and sound quality is OK. Not bat but NOT BEST also. ---------------------------------------------------------------Overall opinion : Rather than going for S-Cross, I would suggest to go for 1. Hyundai Creta2. Ford Ecosport3. Ford Freestyle4. Skoda Rapid5. Mahindra XUV 3006. Mahindra TUV 3007. Mahindra Thar8. Kia SeltosIn short, I would say that if you see a person, doesn't mean that he/she should be beautiful. He/she should be 'HEALTHY'. Don't judge the car assuming that this car looks very big size and price is Rs. 10 lacks, will definitely a very good car. Sorry if you are a S-Cross owners but I am also the same like you. Thanks.

    Cons: 1.This car as everybody points out need a bigger powerful engine to justify its brilliant chassis. 2.There are quality issues like body rattles, squeezing sounds from driver seat etc. 3. A rear Air-con vent is a big miss although AC is descent. 4. Turning Radius is a big disappointment. Even a bigger car in Scorpio has got a better turning radius.5. engine noise insulation could"ve been better.6. Approach angle is too aggressive and it is the only soar point that is vulnerable from getting hit in deep sharp bumps. A better approach angle will surely do wonders for it though it is city focused.7. I found tyres to wear off very quickly. I had to change them at 20k.Pros.1. Ride quality is brilliant. 2. Once you understand the car as a whole, you can do a lot of stuffs with it. most of the off-roadings other than extreme conditions can be done if you take care of the approach angle.3. Ground clearance is good enough if you drive carefully off tarmac and take care of front skid plate.4. Space is adequate for 5.5. Returns good mileage.6. Maintenance cost is on the lower side.7. It is a VFM car. most people compare it to creta SX(O) which is unfair but when you see it at the price point in which the top trim Alpha comes, it sways away creta in every aspect other than build quality.

    Bought scross diesle 1.3 ltr on 2019-Feb and has been using it since. Estimate for 3rd free service was Rs.5048 (Parts - 3048 and Labor - 2000 ) @ Yelahanka Nexa (Bengaluru). When asked why labor is charged even in free service, I was told that wheel alignment/balancing and tire rotation does not fall in the service labor category. MARUTI/NEXA - Being a reputable company, should not hide these facts during sales, but sadly they do.Performance of the vehicle - averageBengaluru City Mileage - 12 to 15 kmplOutside Mileage (long drives) - 17 - 20 kmplWheel turn radius - Needs improvement (have difficulties while making u-turn)Comfort - 5 people can sit comfortably (3 + 2), makes it a stand out when compared to other cars in this segmentSuspension - Needs improvements - Even going at 5 - 8 kmph speed, car suspension does not do justice, when the tire goes through p*t holesSpecial features - Cruise control, steering based audio controls, instant mileage display, rear parking sensors are good to have in this car7 inch LCD - Needs improvement in the inbuilt map (as no service center performs map updates)

    As it is excellent car.mileage is superb it gives about 18-20 in city and 22-23 on highways.it front chrome grill gives a perfect SUV like experience.when I purchased across it waiting period was about 3 month and the stupid dealership delayed more but not giving sufficient information .nexa service centre has transperancy in their work(when car is service d we can see from the room attached to the car servicing chamber).across has very good leg room,height,shoulder comfort (more than creta,capture,brezza,ecosport).it longer than creta but height is shooter overall is a scoss.its servicing cost is about 5000.scross a/c is very cooling even in hot condition.the main drawback is the engine (sufficient) not have more power.it lacks much but in city scross is a best choice but for highways enthusiastic not a proper choice .scross (I noticed) door are lit bit heavy.shvs technology is very power saving.

    I am using this car since June 2019 . I am a very cautious driver . Almost no scratches on my car . Car has just travelled 9,000 kms from mumbai and I am the only sole driver of this car .The Cluth gear has already been burned out and I had to spend rs 9,500 in just about 18 months . I have Full 3 years warranty but it doesn’t cover these charges ! Super disappointed by this product ! And very speedy response from nexa to even attend my vehicle . A sad buyer .never buy nexa . I have other brand cars as well , all are with me since 10 years and none of them have made us pay for cluth gear before 50,000 kms . This vehicle just got its gear worned our in 18 month s???

All of them get the basics, including beefed up ground clearance, a dollop of swag and a dash of tech, right. Which one scores extra credits?
