Maruti’s premium crossover is all set to receive a facelift in the coming months. The facelift was unveiled last year and features a new nose and other exterior updates. The S-Cross was the first model to go on sale through Nexa dealerships in India. It does not possess the typical SUV appearance the Indian audience craves. Which means sales have been relatively low (by Maruti Suzuki standards). Will the facelift help push sales? We will have to wait and see.
