Maruti Suzuki S-Cross SUV
It’s difficult to keep a Maruti car off the top lists, given that it’s the country’s largest car manufacturer. S-Cross automatic is very capable and it’s smooth and fast on the draw. As you step on and off the gas, there are no hesitations or jerks, and the S-Cross also scoots through traffic gaps with ease. The torque convertor gearbox firms up low-speed responses and works nicely with the 1.5 K-series engine. The Maruti Suzuki S-Cross is a sort of halfway house between an SUV and a large hatch.
