Maruti Suzuki opens bookings for S-Cross, Celebrates sale of 1Lakh units of Celerio…!!!
India’s largest car-maker Maruti Suzuki has reached an important milestone as its popular model Celerio crossed the sale of 1 lakh units since its launch last year. Celerio was first showcased at the 2014 Auto Expo in Delhi and became the first car to feature an automated manual transmission (AMT) in India. The company also launched the Celerio diesel in June, 2015. Celerio has since become one of top-selling models of Maruti Suzuki and also features among the top 10 selling cars in India. After Celerio’s launch, Maruti Suzuki’s market-share has increased from 61% to 71% in the economical hatchback segment.
S-Cross bookings open in India:
Dealers of Maruti Suzuki have started accepting bookings for the company’s upcoming crossover the Suzuki S-Cross. The company has opened up the pre-launch bookings of S-Cross at a down payment of Rs. 11,000. With the S-Cross, Maruti Suzuki is looking to target two car segments at once – the hatchback-based crossovers such as Hyundai Elite i20 Active and the compact-SUVs such as Ford Ecosport.
Maruti Suzuki will treat the S-Cross as a premium product and will sell it through Maruti’s premium ‘Nexa’ outlets after it is launched. Nexa outlets will only sell Suzuki’s premium cars starting with the S-cross. However, the premium cars sold through NEXA outlets will not feature the ‘Maruti Suzuki’ nameplate but instead will display only Suzuki logo.
The S-Cross is expected to be priced between Rs. 8-11 lakh. The Suzuki S-Cross will get two power options – 1.3-litre turbocharged DDiS engine with 90PS and 1.6-litre turbocharged DDiS engine delivering 120PS. The 1.3-litre version will be mated to a 5-speed manual transmission, whereas the 1.6-litre version will get a 6-speed manual transmission.
