Maruti�s new mid-size SUV to replace S-Cross in India

Maruti’s mid-size SUV will be unveiled later this month. Prices could be announced in August.

Maruti Suzuki is gearing up to launch a new mid-size SUV in the Indian market. It will be replacing the S-Cross in the brand’s model line-up.

Maruti’s mid-size SUV shares its underpinnings with the Toyota Urban Cruiser Hyryder. The car will be unveiled later this month.

Maruti’s version of the Urban Cruiser Hyryder will also be offered with two engine options, including a 1.5-litre mild-hybrid petrol and a 1.5-litre strong-hybrid. The latter uses a 1.5-litre petrol engine that makes 91 BHP and 122 Nm and an electric motor with an output of 78 BHP and 141 Nm.

The Maruti Suzuki S-Cross was introduced in 2015. Back then, the 1.6-litre diesel quickly became the engine of choice for enthusiasts. In 2017, the car received an update and the 1.6-litre engine was discontinued. At present, the S-Cross is offered with a 1.5-litre mild-hybrid petrol engine.
