The expansion of the Nexa dealer network has also helped boost sales.

The company managed to sell 30,923 units of the S-Cross in FY 2017-18, which is a solid 44.3 percent growth in sales over FY 2016-17. In FY 2015-16, the company sold 24,077 to buyers. “The new S-Cross that was launched last October looks bold upfront which is being admired by our customers. We have also used a smart hybrid technology (SHVS) in the new model which has bettered the efficiency,” a spokesperson from Maruti said. Before the facelift made its way here, the car was available with a Rs 75,000 discount.

Maruti also expanded its premium Nexa showroom network to Tier 2 towns to help widen its reach. The total number of Nexa showrooms is now 316, and they are spread across. As far as the competition is concerned, Hyundai managed to sell 107,136 units, up 10.53 percent, of the Creta in the small SUV/crossover segment.

The S-cross outsold the Renault Duster (14,112 units, down 25.52 percent), Honda BR-V (11,563 units, down 43.37 percent) and Nissan’s Terrano (2872 units, down 17.19 percent). Renault sold only 2,357 units of the Captur at the end of the financial year.
