The Maruti S-Cross India spec model has gone on sale with a choice of two engines-

As per the latest nomenclature from Maruti Suzuki, the 1.3-litre and the 1.6-litre motors is being called as 200 DDiS and 320 DDiS respectively. While the smaller of these motors churns out a peak power-torque output of 88 bhp-200 Nm, the bigger motor packs in a maximum power of 118 bhp and a peak torque of 320 Nm!
