Maruti Suzuki has unveiled the premium Crossover S-Cross at a media drive program and revealed all technical specifications and features offered in each variant. The design and dimensions are same as expected but the big twist came in the form of engines. During the media event only two diesel engines were listed there, surprisingly S-Cross would not come in petrol engine. Also, all grip AWD and automatic will not be the part of S-Cross at least the time of launch.
