S-Cross, a crossover manufactured by Maruti Suzuki is no longer listed on the official website of the company’s Nexa dealership, indicating that the automobile giant has pulled the plug on the car in India. Launched here in 2015, S-Cross was the first model to be retailed by Maruti Suzuki under the Nexa dealership.
Why has S-Cross been delisted?
As per HT Auto, Maruti Suzuki had already announced that Grand Vitara will replace S-Cross; the SUV arrived on September 26. And indeed, the Nexa line-up now features Ignis, Baleno, Ciaz, XL6, as well as Grand Vitara.
In recent months, sales of this crossover declined significantly, the same HT Auto report further state, adding that not a single unit of this car was produced in July, August and September.
