Good handling and stability on high speed, so good drive quality
Space for 5 people
Good boot space
Comfort on long trip including front & back seat comfort, good ride/suspension quality,
After sale service
Need good ground clearance.
Need a car for both city and highway drive. As I travel to office in city and like to travel with family occasionally to Ghat / hilly areas, other cities on road trip.
Fuel type - Petrol, Automatic preferred
Budget 15 lakhs on road in Bangalore, so safety & premium interior is as much as possible in this budget.

Hi,

Nexon is reasonable impressive choice in Manual Transmission
can well be considered in top of line XZ Plus Petrol

Amaze petrol wont recommend basis mediocre steering feedback on highway.

Thanks a ton for clarifying me with clarity. I understood now why Nexon AMT and Brezza (both MT and AT) to be avoided as per my requirements. I will again do test drive of SCross automatic and let you know.

Just curious to know if I be with manual transmission then how will be Nexon in compared to Scross as per my other requirements ? Or any other better option available as per my requirements. I just want to be sure that manual clutch & gear shift be sleek, smooth and clutch travel also be short.

Hi Kanchan ,

See S Cross comes in 4 speed Automatic
So one need to adjust in driving style to be gentle on accelerator and drive in linear way. If you remain gentle on accelerator then no such noise issues - else will experience same in both S Cross and Brezza too been 4 Speed Automatic.

Infact the same way will experience same in CVT Automatic too where one need to be gentle on acceleratir
Every car has its own driving style - so that needs to be adjusted to get the best out of same.

Nexon AMT is good - but its AMT and AMT although loosely said as Automatic but remains Automated Manual TRansmission and somehow AMT refinement is no match to conventional Automatic

Why Brezza not recommended over S Cross due to very average interiors and rear seats are placed in upright way
I suggest to test drive S Cross Automatic again and be gentle on accelerator to experience the best out of same

Hope should help !!

I test drive Scross AT petrol but I found lot of engine noise while pressing accelerator which i didnt like. On manual the noiseis lesser. Another thing is its black interior claustrophobic.

Dear Kanchan,

Somehow Karnataka has one among highest road tax in zone
So from 15 Lakh Budget perspective - a car whose exshowroom is at best under 12.5 Lakh will what fall in your budget

Maruti S Cross Alpha Automatic is what the best recommended pick basis need as specified
1. Cabin is wide enough to be spacious enough for 5 adults. Recline rear seat ensure best comfort
2. Suspension is on stiffer note, ensure good highway ride experience
3. Maruti proven reliability and after sales service experience
4. Ground clearance is 180mm+
5. Despite of 4 speed automatic - when you drive in real world - theres no lag as such and when drive in gentle way with relaxed foot will find 1.5 Litre engine performance to be complimeting

In terms of safety - well S Cross although based on heartect platform but come with superior build with better sheet metal qua;ity as against other Maruti Suzuki Cars. In safety features
ABS with EBD, Dual Front Airbag, Auto Dimming IRVM Mirror, Immobilizer, Seat Belt Pretensioner with Load Limiter are there
Interiors and design feels good upmarket

Downside
> No ESP
> NCAP Crash test rating not available
> Slight Stiffened suspension - so although highway dynamics are good but may not enjoy comfort as such to a larger extent in city

But basis overall requirements of
> Space
> Reliability
> Features
> Good Interiors
> Highway dynamics

S Cross Alpha is worth a consideration
