Continued: 10 new Maruti cars & SUVs to watch out for

Here are 5 more Maruti cars that will come soon to India.

S-Cross Facelift

S-Cross3

The S-Cross has been a decent car on the sales chart in India. Maruti is launching the facelift version of the vehicle soon. The S-Cross facelift has become bigger in size and has also received a new grille at the front, with vertical slats instead of the current single horizontal grille.

The new S-Cross will also get projector headlamps along with LED daytime runnings lamps. Suzuki has made the cabin of the vehicle more premium. There is a new infotainment system with Android Auto and CarPlay support and new materials that are premium to touch. The engine options will be similar to the current 1.3-litre 89 BHP and 1.6-litre 118 BHP. Marut may launch a petrol engine too to bring down the prices and target a larger group of customers.

Swift Sport

Swift sport

Swift Sport has been anticipated in the Indian market since a long time now. With the new Swift, Maruti will also bring in the Swift Sports in the 5-door avatar. The new Swift is based on the Baleno platform, which itself will get the hot version soon.

The Swift Sport will be powered by 1.4-litre turbo petrol engine that churns out a maximum of 140 BHP. The new Swift has also lost a lot of weight, the addition of extra power will make it even better. The car is also expected to get lower suspension set-up to improve the handling.

All-new Jimny

Suzuki Jimny

 

The new Jimny will replace the current Gypsy in India. The compact SUV will also be based on the Baleno chassis and will be made in India. The Jimny will be similar to the Gypsy with 2-door set-up and will get a 4X4 system with low gear ratio. The short wheelbase of the Jimny makes it a very potent off-roader. Maruti is likely to use the 1 liter BoosterJet turbo petrol engine on the new off roader.

Vitara Brezza petrol

Maruti Vitara Brezza

Maruti launched the Vitara Brezza compact SUV last year, and the car has become a huge hit in the market. The company only offers the Brezza with a diesel engine, though. Maruti is working on the petrol powered Vitara Brezza that should arrive on the market anytime soon. The Vitara Brezza petrol will get 1.0-litre turbo petrol engine that will also power the Baleno RS. The engine may be re-tuned to 108 BHP to take on the weight of the Brezza.

All-new Alto

Alto JDM

Maruti is also working to bring in the replacement model of India’s largest selling car, Alto. The company will bring in the new paradigm to keep up with the India’s new crash test norms. The new Alto will have to be compliant with Bharat New Vehicle Safety Assesment Program (BNVSAP), and for the same reason, Maruti will bring in the JDM version of the vehicle but will modify it to suit the Indian market. The new Alto is expected to launch by early 2018 in India.
