Maruti Suzuki is all set to launch the BS6 S-Cross petrol in India. It was earlier showcased at the Auto Expo 2020. The Indo-Japanese carmaker recently teased the arrival of the Maruit S-Cross petrol on its Nexa website ahead of its official launch. With the introduction of BS6 emission norms, Maruti will be phasing out its diesel engine. It has no plans of upgrading it to meet the BS6 standards. The automaker is all set to fill up the gap with the launch of the petrol version. The Maruti S-Cross Petrol is expected to retain its overall design with upgraded mechanicals and some feature additions.

Under the skin, the petrol version of Maruti S-Cross will be powered by a BS6 compliant 1.5-litre K15B petrol mill with SHVS mild-hybrid technology. It is the same powerhouse that is offered on Maruti Ertiga, XL6, and Ciaz. The engine here produces 105 bhp power @ 6000 rpm and 138 Nm torque @ 4400 rpm. The engine will come mated to a 5-speed manual transmission along with a 4-speed torque converter automatic transmission as an option. 

Talking about the outgoing model, it was powered by a 1.3-litre diesel mill that churned out 90 bhp power output with 200 Nm peak torque. The engine was mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. Not many details have been revealed yet. Apart from discontinuing its diesel engine, BS6 Maruti S-Cross petrol is expected to get an updated Smartplay Studio infotainment system.
