Maruti Suzuki launched the S-Cross premium crossover back in 2015. Initially, it was launched with a 1.6-litre diesel engine or DDIS 320, which was later discontinued after 2017. It was also available with a 1.3-litre diesel engine, popularly known as DDIS 200. This Fiat Chrysler-sourced engine was so common in several cars across the country that this motor earned the nickname ‘the national engine of India.’ Until recently, Maruti Suzuki S-Cross was being sold with a 1.5-litre mild-hybrid powertrain.

Despite being projected as a premium model and as a crossover variant of the SX4 sedan, the S-Cross fell out of favour for customers within a few years after its launch. Its sales have been declining ever since then. Hence, it was about to discontinue. In fact, Maruti Suzuki didn't produce a single unit of the S-Cross in July and August this year.

The disappearance of the Maruti Suzuki S-Cross from the official website of Nexa premium retail network doesn't come as a surprise. It was already announced that the Grand Vitara would come to replace the S-Cross. With the inclusion of the Grand Vitara, the crossover was bound to discontinue.

Speaking about the Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara, it comes as a premium mid-size SUV offering from the brand. It is available in two different powertrain options. One is a 1.5-litre mild-hybrid petrol engine, while the other engine option is a 1.5-litre strong hybrid unit.
