2023 Maruti Suzuki Fronx
The front end of the all-new Fronx looks heavily inspired by the all-new Grand Vitara in the Indian market. However, the Baleno silhouette is clearly visible on the vehicle. The front end gets a wide chrome strip cutting across the large grille. Maruti Suzuki says that the Fronx is aerodynamically designed with an upright front and rear facia.
The wheel arches are squared off, which ensures a muscular and strong appeal. The Fronx offers a much larger ground clearance than the Baleno. However, the brand is yet to reveal the official ground clearance of the Fronx. It makes sure that the Fronx can go anywhere.
The rear of the all-new Fronx gets LED tail lamps with a connected lightbar. There are faux bumper guards at the front and rear. Maruti Suzuki has worked to make the Fronx look as muscular as possible and it has done the job well. The car will sell only through the Nexa premium dealerships.
The cabin of the all-new Fronx gets a dual-tone theme with steering, an infotainment system and an instrument cluster similar to the Baleno. You also get features like a wireless car charger and faux leather. The 9.0-inch free floating SmartPlay infotainment system also gets connectivity options like Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
