My favourite Maruti
Central locking problem with key remote
I have been facing problems with my car key remote for a few days now. Even after replacing the battery, the unlock button either does not work or it unlocks only one door after multiple presses. Workshop says it will diagnose to see if the problem
is with the signal sender in the remote or the receiver in the car.
Android Auto is horrible to use
Every time I connect my phone to the car via Android Auto, the system ends up hanging. When it does not hang, it works incredibly slow. I have tried connecting other phones as well and the problem remains the same. So, my phone seems to be fine and
the internal software of the car seems to be at fault.
Ground clearance helpful but no AWD option
I drive through some pretty bad roads daily on my way to work and the ground clearance of the S-Cross helps a lot. Rarely do the bumpers of the car scrape the road on speed breakers. However, would have loved to see an AWD option as it makes driving
in the rainy season much more assuring.
Clutch is heavy compared to other Maruti cars
Car is slow to respond
Unfortunately, the S-Cross is not the kind of car which accelerates at a touch of the accelerator, despite 118 bhp which is not less! The engine has a narrow range in which it responds effectively, at all other times it behaves like any other badly
tuned diesel car in the Indian market.
Boot release mechanism too sensitive
If anything like a bag strap accidentally gets squeezed between the boot lid when it is being closed, then the boot release stops working. The boot release button then either needs to be pressed multiple times or it has to be opened manually. Wish
there was a possible solution to this, but unfortunately, the release system can’t be readjusted or recalibrated.
Fuel efficiency on point!
Storage in the cabin is decent
Quite happy with the position and capacity of all the storage areas provided in the S-Cross. I agree this point is not very relevant to write a whole review on but for someone like me who travels with their entire world wherever they go, this point
becomes very crucial as the car needs a lot of usable storage capacity.
CarPlay system is the best!
The music system and menu browsing on the S-Cross are by far the best on any car I have come across yet. It is just so quick to respond and effortless to use. Though the system is more or less the same on all Maruti cars, it just functions on a
completely different level in the S-Cross. Hats off!
Comfortable, supportive seats
Not happy with the 2016 recall
I have always had a lot of faith in Maruti as a brand but unfortunately, the recall of the S-Cross in 2016 was a big blow, mainly because the car had been launched not too long ago. My S-Cross was also among the affected pieces which made me feel as
though the build quality and consistency from Maruti is slowly dipping. Not happy with this feeling.
Rear AC vents important but missing
The S-Cross is quite a big car. It needs rear AC vents because the back seat can’t be sufficiently cooled by the front vents, especially on extreme summer days. As a result, I have to sit on the front seat with my driver since the back seat is no
good without its own vents.
Decent performance in the city
The S-Cross certainly does not bring out the enthusiast but it certainly provides enough power and performance to manage daily city driving with ease. Overtaking moves, when timed correctly, are easy and effective. It is also easy to park in most
places as it does not occupy much space. A well-rounded car from Maruti yet again.
Cabin remains quiet at all times
Irrespective of the roads, traffic noise or bad weather, the cabin of the S-Cross is one place where I can spend all day without breaking a sweat. It is very effective in filtering out all noises and therefore, driving it is a very peaceful
No automatic gear option
When Maruti can offer the Celerio with an AMT option which is not even a premium segment car, why have they left out the S-Cross? Their strategy on this seems a bit silly to me. However, the car is otherwise very refined and smooth, it would have
only become better with the automatic gear option.
Quite noisy when pushed hard
The engine on the S-Cross is just not meant for aggressive drivers who often change gears at the redline. It gets very noisy when pushed hard and if driven in the same manner, I have a feeling the engine will become quite rough overtime since it
does not seem rugged enough to support this style of driving.
Diesel engine is slow, lazy
Maruti usually makes decent diesel-powered cars which share the same engine. So, I guess the tuning on the S-Cross has been a miss for me. Constant gear changing is the only way to extract the most out of the car. Since the car is lazy, therefore,
you can’t be lazy with it.
Most cars come with disc brakes only at the front but all four-disc brakes are certainly a good move in the premium direction. Naturally then, the braking power of the S-Cross is unlike any other Maruti car that I have come across. It is very strong
Rock solid at high speed
Good suspension setup
Plastic quality is a letdown
If this model is being sold at NEXA dealerships, then it is a premium segment car. However, despite the effort, Maruti has not gone into that segment successfully as the interiors of the S-Cross are like any other Maruti car till now. Neither are
they different nor are they made of premium materials. Plastic quality is pretty bad too.
