As of now, the brand has not given any confirmation on the launch of S-Cross but it is expected that soon the brand will reveal S-Cross in petrol. However, we would suggest you to wait for the official announcement.
It would be too early to give any verdict here before the launch of its petrol version. Since Maruti is set to ditch diesel engines altogether in the BS6 era, the 1.3-litre DDiS unit in the S-Cross has been replaced by the BS6 1.5-litre petrol engine with mild-hybrid tech. It is the same engine that powers larger Maruti Suzuki cars like the Ciaz, Ertiga, XL6 and the recently unveiled Vitara Brezza facelift. In the S-Cross, it makes 105PS and 138Nm mated to a 5-speed manual as standard. Maruti is expected to offer the mild-hybrid tech with a 4-speed AT as seen on the facelifted Vitara Brezza. It may also offer its inhouse-developed 1.5-litre diesel engine in BS6 guise if there is enough demand for it. Expect the S-Cross to get a CNG variant as well.
