Maruti Suzuki has revealed their 2022 S-Cross; key details & pictures have been revealed along. With the generation change, there is significant work seen on the exterior with slight updates on the interior. However, the engine & platform remains unchanged; let’s see what the new S-Cross offers:
The new generation S-Cross has a more boxy SUV appeal as compared to its older version. The curves have been sharpened to cuts with sleek lamps and cladding around. The front features a piano-black grille with a honeycomb pattern. The chrome strip on the grille connects the sleekly styled headlamps with tri-beam LED aspects featuring the Suzuki logo in the middle. The dimensions(mm) are as follows:
- Length: 4300
- Width: 1785
The front bumper is well cut and supported by silver skid plates, and the bonnet has also been flattened to add to the SUV appeal. Overall, the front contrasts with the chrome & silver, but the new design is significantly better.
The side profile reveals the added boxy appeal along with a more robust shoulder line. The windows have a bottom chrome garnish, a gentle inclination, and solid cladding at the lower ends gives a stern look. It also stands on new 17-inch 5-spoke alloys.
The rear features a black strip connecting the wraparound taillights, and it gets a straightly cut boot with an integrated spoiler at the top. The newly designed bumper fits well with the silver skid plate similar to the front—overall, the rear sleek dark appeal with some reflective elements. It will be offered in the following colors:
- Silky Silver
- Metallic Titan Dark Grey,
- Sphere Blue
- Solid White
- Energetic Red
- Cosmic Black
The updated interior features a new dashboard with a free-standing 9-inch touchscreen infotainment system as the center point. The aircon vents are sleeker than before and positioned below the bigger screen. The gear lever and steering have not received any changes, and lower trims still get the 7-inch infotainment system.
A similar interior is expected to be seen on the upcoming Brezza and Baleno next year.

Engine & Platform
The new S-Cross is based on the same Global C platform but an updated version now. It is powered by a 1.4L Boosterjet engine making 127hp & 235Nm of torque. This new version gets a 48V mild-hybrid tech to improve fuel efficiency and acceleration.
It will be mated to a 6-speed manual/ automatic transmission. Suzuki claims the 0-100kph time to be 9.5 seconds and 10.2 seconds for the four-wheel-drive variants. The European version is offered with the Allgrip AWD with four driving modes.
The top variants will feature a fresh load of features such as a panoramic sunroof, 360-degree camera, heated seats & dual-zone climate control. The updated S-Cross will also get leather upholstery, keyless entry, and ADAS features.

The driver assistance features would include AEM braking, adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, traffic sign recognition & lane departure prevention.
This version will be available in the European markets only, but Maruti Suzuki could surely do well by introducing the same in India. The competition is tough now, and the current S-Cross here needs this update to survive. However, we might not get any mechanical changes and might miss on some features too.
