Latest reports on the internet suggest that the upcoming Maruti Suzuki SX4 S-Cross will get a 1.6L diesel motor mated to an AMT gearbox. Pricing of this automatic variant is expected to be higher by Rs. 90,000 compared to the manual variant. The AWD AllGrip 4×4 system can be provided in India.

The S-Cross will get a host of India-specific features. These include a dual-slat chrome front grille and chrome accents on the tail lamp to suit the Indian love for chrome on cars.

The S-Cross will be available in only two trim levels, in both petrol and diesel engine options. The base Lxi / Ldi trim level will be dumped and only the Vxi / Vdi and Zxi / Zdi trim levels will be available.

The top end, Zxi / Zdi variants will feature HID projector headlamps, LED DRLs, turn indicators on ORVMs, 14-spoke alloy wheels, side skirt silver garnish, silver garnish on front & rear bumper, silver roof rails, roof mounted antenna, chrome surround for the front fog lamps, etc. The lower Vxi / Vdi variants will get halogen headlamps and 10-spoke alloy wheels.

Inside the SX4-Cross, things are similar to what we saw at the 2014 Indian Auto Expo. All-black dashboard with silver accents around the AC vents and around the centre console. Steering wheel is a three-spoke all-black unit and is similar to some of the Maruti cars available on sale. Instrument cluster had a blue backlit & top section of the dashboard seems to have a glossy finish.
