What’s good about it?

Depending on the variant, the S-Cross is equipped with features such as cruise control, rain sensing wipers, LED DRLs, auto headlamps, auto dimming and antiglare IRVM, auto retracting ORVM and reverse parking sensor with camera. The vehicle gets a seven-inch capacitive touchscreen with navigation system. Moreover, the hill-hold function is standard on all automatic variants. 

What’s not so good?

The Delta MT/AT does not get the seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system and front fog lamps and only gets audio with CD player and a remote control. Amid a list of features from the higher variants, the base Sigma variant also misses out on anti-theft security system, alloy wheels and a music system.
