It feels like i am at the Las Ventas where the most famous bull fights take place. Only that the arena is bigger and called INDIA. And the bulls here are the Suzuki S-Cross and the Hyundai Creta. The first competitor to enter the ring was the Creta last month. And today we have the opponent enter the ring. Suzuki S-Cross.
Never before two biggest competitors have launched models in the same segment in such a short span of time. The S-Cross launch for Suzuki is huge considering the effort put in to shed the small car manufacturer tag.
