Maruti Suzuki, the largest car manufacturer in India has launched quite a few models in this year. The arrival of all-new Swift, new Ciaz and all-new Ertiga have kept the manufacturer busy and the model line-up fresh. In 2019, Maruti Suzuki is planning to launch as many as six new models in India! Here are all the upcoming cars.

Maruti Suzuki WagonR

Expected launch: First quarter 2019

The Maruti Suzuki WagonR is due for a full model change in the Indian market. One of the best selling hatchbacks in the Indian market, the WagonR has aged quite a lot and soon an all-new version would be launched to take its place. The all-new model would be heavily inspired by the WagonR sold in the Japanese market but the vehicle has been developed specifically for the Indian market. The all-new WagonR would look completely different from the current model and will get upgraded interiors too. However, it will retain its 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol engine from the current model.

Maruti Suzuki S-Cross petrol

Expected launch: Mid 2019

Maruti S Cross

Maruti Suzuki S-Cross was launched in a facelifted version with an only 1.3-litre diesel engine with SHVS mild hybrid system. Maruti is working on to use the 1.5-litre petrol engine that debuted with the Maruti Ciaz in the Maruti S-Cross. The all-new petrol engine has been internally developed by Maruti and produces a maximum of 104 PS of power and 138 Nm of peak torque. The engine is mated to a 5-speed manual transmission in the Ciaz and the same is expected in the S-Cross too. Maruti may also offer the 4-speed automatic transmission with the introduction of the petrol engine in the S-Cross. Just like the Ciaz petrol, the S-Cross petrol would get the SHVS mild hybrid system.

Maruti Suzuki Ertiga Cross

Expected launch: Festive season 2019

Maruti Suzuki introduced the all-new Ertiga in the Indian market this year. The seven-seater MUV is extremely popular in the Indian market and was launched with an all-new platform. Maruti will now expand the portfolio by launching a cross-version of the Ertiga in the Indian market. The cross-version of the Ertiga was showcased at an International motor show and gets thick cladding all around the body. It also gets raised ground clearance and would be perfect for the customers who often take on the highways on the weekends.

Maruti Toyota Corolla

Expected launch: Mid 2019

Maruti and Toyota joined hands in the Indian market to bring in the rebadged version of the cars. Toyota will supply their D-Segment sedan – Corolla Altis to Maruti Suzuki in the Indian market. Maruti will do a lot of changes to the vehicle to ensure that it looks substantially different from Toyota’s version. Maruti is also expected to do changes to the interiors and make the product look and feel like a true Maruti Suzuki.

Maruti Suzuki Swift RS

Expected launch: First half 2019

Maruti Suzuki launched the all-new Swift and it has become a major hit in the Indian market. At the time of the launch of the all-new Swift, Maruti was expected to bring in the performance version of the Swift too. However, the performance version of the Swift in the Indian market would be quite different from the version that is on sale in the international markets. The Indian version of the performance Swift would be known as the Swift RS and it would be powered by the same 1.0-litre turbocharged engine that powers the Baleno RS too.

Maruti Suzuki Y1K

Expected launch: Festive season 2019

Maruti is currently working on to bring in an all-new micro SUV that would be positioned below the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza. The vehicle has been codenamed as the Y1K and it would take a lot of design cues from the Concept Future S. The vehicle will be Maruti’s challenger to the likes of the Mahindra KUV 100.  With the rising popularity of the SUVs in India, the Y1K is expected to make a lot of waves in the market. The engine details are not known yet but Maruti is expected to use a 660cc, turbocharged petrol engine that generates a maximum of 51 PS and a peak torque of 63 Nm. It would get a 5-speed manual transmission and an AMT automatic transmission.
