New Maruti S-Cross vs Brezza 2020 Petrol - COMPARISON
New Maruti S-Cross Or Brezza 2020 Petrol - The 1 Lakh Question. Which is Better?
Maruti has recently launched the new S-Cross petrol in India and that means now you can now buy not one but two Maruti SUVs with the same petrol engine. Yes, we are talking about the 1.5l petrol which first came in the Vitara Brezza and now comes in the S-Cross. So which is better? We tell you in this exclusive comparison where we also conduct the S-Cross review 2020 spec.
Engine and Performance
First let us start our Maruti Suzuki S-Cross petrol review 2020 model with talking about the 1.5l petrol engine. The engine is the Maruti's popular 1.5l unit and makes 105 bhp and 138 Nm. Both cars get the same engine and in both, the performance is quite good. The power comes in nice and early with a rev-happy nature which is felt on the manual more as you have more control.
For everyday use the 1.5l petrol is silent and does the job in terms of smoothness or the ease at which you can drive it at low speeds. It is not as powerful as the big turbo motors in the Creta or Seltos but the 1.5l has a good combination of mileage and performance. Now the Brezaa with this engine feels more energetic and faster due to being lighter and more compact. It is more fun over the S-Cross. However in terms of the automatic, both the cars get the same 4-speed gearbox and there we felt that the S-Cross felt smoother.
Ride and Handling
That is also true for the ride and handling of both. The Brezza has a more firm ride but feels more agile while feeling smaller when driven in the city. Plus it has the more SUV like driving position which some might like. The S-Cross driver sits lower but the ride quality is better however it is not as agile as the Brezza due to the larger size.
One big difference between the S-Cross and the Vitara Brezza is that unlike the Brezza, the S-Cross comes with the mild hybrid system in both of the manual and auto variants. The Brezza has this system with the 4-speed auto only.
In terms of efficiency the manual petrol S-Cross delivers more at 18.55 kmpl vs 17.03 kmpl of the Brezza. In terms of automatics, the Brezza has the slight advantage at 18.76 kmpl vs 18.43 kmpl of the S-Cross auto. That said both give more mileage over other petrol SUVs so in our S-Cross mileage review, the car impressed at a regular 13-14 kmpl.
Interiors and Features
Both cars are decently equipped with the latest Maruti infotainment system on offer with all the usual smart-phone functions plus rear camera, cruise control, projector headlamps with DRLs and more. That said the S-Cross interior looks more premium with the black leather than the Brezza. The S-Cross is also more spacious at the rear and also in terms of shoulder-room or legroom.
The Brezza prices start at Rs 7.4 lakh and go till Rs 11.4 lakh for the top-end version. The S-Cross prices start at Rs 8.4 lakh and goes till Rs 12.4 lakh. So there is roughly a lakh difference between the Brezza and the S-Cross. In terms of features it is nearly the same so in the Brezza you get a more fun to drive experience plus a more rugged appeal. The S-Cross though is aimed at those who might be driven around with the better quality interiors and also a better ride. Like driving yourself? Get the Brezza but if you want space and comfort more, then the S-Cross it is.
