With a very positive response to both the Ignis and the Baleno, the Nexa dealerships seem to have quite a lot on their hands. But the car that kick started these dealerships - the S-Cross has seen a slump in demand which is why the company has quietly discontinued the lower variants of the S-Cross with the 1.6-litre engine. The company has discontinued the Delta and Zeta variants of the S-Cross and now the more powerful 1.6-litre engine will be available in only the top Alpha variant.

The 1.3-litre diesel engine will continue to be sold in all four variants - Sigma, Delta, Zeta and Alpha. Priced between Rs 8.78 lakh and Rs 10.63 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi), the S-Cross has already seen a price revision last year, with prices being cut by over ₹ 2 lakh. And now the company has plans to bring out a facelift of the car (which has already been revealed) soon.

A Maruti Suzuki spokesperson told PTI that, "It is business prudence to keep the number of variants at an optimum level in line with customer's requirements. We started a new segment called premium crossover with S Cross. Volume-wise, S-Cross continues to do an average of 2,000-2,100 units monthly,"

There was also a reduction in price of the 1.3 litre variant which ranged from ₹ 40,000 to ₹ 66,000. The S-Cross has been a slow starter for the company and Maruti Suzuki has pulled out all stops to make it work and it says that the S-Cross contributes to the overall brand objectives of the company for the medium and long term.
