It is a subsidiary of Japanese automobile and motorcycle manufacturer Suzuki. As of November 2012, it had a market share of 37% of the Indian passenger car markets.

Among the handful of upcoming Maruti cars in 2015 is the highly anticipated S-Cross crossover, which has been already spied a gazillion times on our country’s public roads. The Maruti S-Cross is largely based on the now defunct SX4 and will soon lock horns with some highly successful compact SUVs in India. A new report that surfaced on the cyber space earlier today states that the Maruti S-Cross launch could take place next month and that the new model will go on sale under the ‘Across’ moniker. Here, in this post, we have compiled all the details on the upcoming Maruti crossover.
