2020 S-Cross is the first major launch from Maruti Suzuki since the lockdown was enforced in the country to check the spread of Covid-19. While it was showcased at Auto Expo 2020, the launch was delayed due to the prevailing conditions.

There are enough reasons on paper that seek to make a case for the new S-Cross. Petrol engine was a long-standing demand from customers and while it took several years, the requests have now been addressed as the car gets a 1.5 liter K Series petrol engine which is the same unit that does duty inside the Ciaz, Ertiga, XL6 and Brezza. It also comes with Smart Hybrid technology. The engine has fared well in the Maruti product portfolio and marries performance and mileage well. The claimed mileage figure stands at 18.55 kilometres per litre. There's max power of 104 bhp for the taking while max torque figure stands at 138Nm.

Another major development is that Maruti has finally equipped the S-Cross with an automatic transmission. With automatics gathering momentum in India and with several Maruti products offering some form of auto transmission or the other, it adds to the new S-Cross' light of highlights.
