Maruti Suzuki S-Cross is 4300mm long, 1785mm wide, 1595mm tall and has a wheelbase of 2600mm. A wider body normally results in better shoulder room and a higher roof makes ingress & egress easier. A longer wheelbase usually results in more cabin space. It has a boot space of 375 litres. A larger boot allows you to carry more luggage. SCross has a 180mm ground clearance, it rides on 215/60 R16 tyres size and has 48 litres fuel tank capacity.

  • Nissan Kicks is the longest car in the segment. It is 84mm longer than S-Cross.
  • The S-Cross is the shortest car in this segment and on par with the Creta.
  • Renault Duster is the widest car in the segment. It is 37mm wider than S-Cross.
  • The S Cross is the narrowest car in this segment.
  • Renault Duster is the tallest car in the segment. It is 100mm taller than S-Cross.
  • Nissan Kicks has the longest wheelbase in the segment. Its wheelbase is longer than the S-Cross’s by 73mm.
  • The SCross has the shortest wheelbase in the segment.
  • Renault Duster has the biggest boot space in the segment. It has 100-lt more boot space than the S-Cross.
  • The S-Cross’ boot is the smallest in the segment and stands at 375 litres with the rear seatback upright and at 353 litres in the reclined position.
  • Nissan Kickss ground clearance of 210mm is the best in the segment.
  • Although the S-Cross has the smallest fuel tank in this comparison, it will have the longest driving range per full tank of petrol. The theoretical range of the Maruti SCross petrol is 888km.

Amongst all the C-segment SUVs, Nissan Kicks has the best ground clearance, so it is the best car to drive on uneven roads. While the S-Cross doesn’t impress with its dimensions or engine performance, they’re satisfactory and even great considering its lower price tag.

Renault Duster has the biggest boot in the segment, so it can carry maximum luggage. Despite its age, the Duster comes across as a competent car, at least in terms of dimensions. It can still hold its own against the rivals with its widest body, longest wheelbase and the biggest boot space. Its normal petrol engine also has respectable torque output compared to the similar engines among C segment SUVs - same as the Kicks.

All things considered, the Duster may not deter a Seltos or Creta buyer with its old styling. However, it comes across as a potent rival for the S-Cross as it has a competent engine, better ground clearance, phenomenal road presence and a bigger cabin and boot. The Duster is worth a look if you’re not too bothered by its poor fuel efficiency, which is the worst in this segment.
