    Exclusive Leak: Maruti Suzuki S-Cross Petrol Variants Explained

    by Mahesh Yadav on Wednesday, Jul 15 2020

    Read on to find out the features of each variant of the 2020 Maruti Suzuki S-Cross petrol hybrid. Here we compare the prices of the 2020 S-Cross's petrol variants based on our exclusive leaked information. Then we will compare the engine specs, dimensions and fuel efficiency of the 2020 Maruti Suzuki S-Cross with its competitors and other petrol C-segment SUVs.

    Maruti Suzuki S-Cross Petrol Variants Explained

    What Are The Pros And Cons Of 2020 Maruti Suzuki S-Cross Petrol?

    The pros or advantages of S-Cross petrol 2020 are:

    • Hybrid technology does help with the fuel efficiency, adds some off-peak torque and works well with the auto-start-stop system
    • It carries an under-the-radar profile with SUV-like ground clearance and practicality
    • So far it has been cheaper than the primary rivals - Creta and Seltos and we expect that trend to continue in 2020 as well

    The Maruti Suzuki S-Cross petrol 2020 will have the following shortcomings or problems:

    • No turbo diesel or turbo petrol engine option
    • It gets an old-school, gas guzzler, torque converter automatic and a 4-speed at that
    • Not SUV-ish enough to challenge the Duster, Seltos or Creta in a road presence contest - smallest in the segment in every dimension specification

    What Are The Features Of 2020 Maruti Suzuki S-Cross Petrol Sigma Variant?

    The most notable features of the Sigma variant are:

    • Standard safety features - 2 airbags, ABS, parking sensors
    • All power windows
    • Remote central locking
    • Halogen projector headlamps
    • Front and rear disc brakes
    • 60-40 split rear seatback
    • Auto start/stop
    • Body-colour mirrors and handles
    • Full wheel covers
    • Power mirrors
    • Tilt steering

    The base variant of the S-Cross petrol will barely cover the basic must-have features. The lack of a music system, steering-mounted controls and a rear defogger keeps us from recommending this variant unless Maruti Suzuki prices it too aggressively.

    What Are The Features Of 2020 Maruti Suzuki S-Cross Petrol Delta Variant?

    The Delta will get the features:

    • Rear defogger
    • Rear washer and wiper
    • Music system
    • Steering-mounted controls
    • Cruise control
    • 16-inch alloy wheels
    • Push-button start/stop and keyless entry
    • Power folding mirrors
    • Telescopic steering
    • Auto AC
    • Hill-start and ESC (Automatic only)

    The Delta variant looks like a well-loaded package with plenty of functional bits and pieces. In 2019, the Zeta variant had but the Delta variant didn’t have the following features:

    • Cruise control
    • Power folding mirrors
    • Keyless entry with push-button start/stop
    • Auto AC
    • Alloy wheels

    Now that so many features have spilt over to the Delta variant, it becomes very difficult to ignore. This is going to be a variant worth taking a good look at.

    What Are The Features Of 2020 Maruti Suzuki S-Cross Petrol Zeta Variant?

    The major features of the S-Cross 2020 petrol Zeta variant are:

    • Front fog lamps
    • Touchscreen infotainment
    • Android Auto and Apple Carplay
    • Height-adjustable driver seat
    • Reclining rear seat
    • Rear armrest
    • Parking camera

    While the Zeta variant is adding a few important features for a more luxurious experience, it’s not adding enough to take the prime spot away from the Delta. It’ll depend on the pricing. If it’s not too expensive over the S-Cross petrol Delta, then this can be a good option to consider.

    What Are The Features Of 2020 Maruti Suzuki S-Cross Petrol Alpha Variant?

    The Alpha variant adds even more good-to-have features like:

    • LED projector headlamps
    • LED DRLs
    • LED tail lamps
    • Auto wipers
    • Auto headlamps
    • Auto-dimming inside mirror
    • Faux leather upholstery

    Barely any of these features is a must-have but they may have high sentimental value for some buyers. So, we’d suggest you decide based on the price difference between the Zeta and the Alpha variants to see if it justifies its incremental cost.

    Which Variant Of The 2020 Maruti Suzuki S-Cross Petrol Offers The Most Value For Money?

    In our opinion, the Zeta variant seems like a good option but for value-conscious buyers, the Delta could turn out to be the star of the show. It has mostly functional features, which were earlier reserved for the Zeta variant.

    The Alpha and the Sigma are at the two ends of the spectrums - not just in terms of price, but also usability. The Sigma doesn’t get enough to warrant a serious consideration while the Alpha packs mostly good-to-have features over the Delta trim.

    What Are The Engine Specifications Of The 2020 Maruti Suzuki S-Cross Petrol?

    The S-Cross petrol will get a 1.5-litre hybrid engine with a 5-speed manual and a 4-speed torque converter automatic transmission. Unlike the Brezza, the S-Cross will get the hybrid technology with both, the manual and the automatic transmission. The Ertiga, XL6 and Ciaz also get the same engine and they don’t discriminate based on the transmission type.

    This engine is good for 105PS of power and 138Nm of torque. This is the least powerful and least torquey engine in this class. However, it redeems itself with great petrol mileage of 18.55kmpl and 18.43kmpl with manual and automatic transmissions, respectively. In the real world, the off-peak torque from the electric motor may mask its low torque output.

    What Are The Dimensions Of The 2020 Maruti Suzuki S-Cross?

    The S-Cross is not undergoing any major changes in 2020 save for a powertrain transplant. So, the dimensions of this crossover will remain unchanged. Considering the 2019 model’s dimensions, we can say that it will have the smallest boot, shortest and narrowest body, lowest roofline and the lowest ground clearance. That’s not all. It’s last in the wheelbase length as well. Clearly, the S-Cross is not for those who like to announce their arrival.
