Maruti Suzuki India, country’s largest car manufacturer volume wise is betting big on the affordable SUV segment in India. Maruti Suzuki first tasted the success in the SUV segment with the Vitara Brezza compact SUV by selling more than 2 Lakh units in 2 years. They also had S-Cross, which failed to catch the fancy of the Indian buyers. However, Maruti didn’t give away the hope and relaunched the crossover with a complete makeover.

It seems like the gamble has paid off for the company as the new Maruti Suzuki S-Cross is doing fairly good as compared to the previous generation model. While it has failed to reach the territory of the Vitara Brezza, the S-Cross, when compared to the pre-facelift model, as surpassed the expectations of the trade pundits.
