Maruti Suzuki, India’s largest car manufacturer currently has a wide portfolio in the Indian market. The manufacturer offers almost all segment of vehicles including SUVs, hatchbacks, sedans and crossover. However, since the SUVs are gaining popularity in the Indian market, the manufacturer currently plans to launch more SUVs or SUV inspired designs in the market. As a part of the future growth strategy, the manufacturer plans to bring six new cars to the market including hatchbacks inspired by SUV design. Here are six upcoming cars from Maruti Suzuki according to a LiveMint report.
Maruti Suzuki Vitara
Maruti started testing a model of Vitara in the Indian market last year. The all-new mid-size SUV will be positioned above the Vitara Brezza and will rival the likes of Jeep Compass and Hyundai Tucson. The Grand Vitara is already on sale in the international markets and will be launched in an Indian-spec version in the market. Since Maruti Suzuki has already announced that there will no petrol engine in the market after the BS6 implementation, the upcoming Vitara may only get the 1.5-litre naturally aspired petrol engine that is already available with the Ciaz and the Ertiga. Also, a 1.4-litre turbocharged or a 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine can be launched with the car.
Maruti Suzuki and Toyota will develop an all-new compact SUV under the new global partnership. The car will take on the likes of Kia Seltos and upcoming Hyundai Creta. The all-new car is expected to get two different designs that will be utilised by Toyota and Maruti Suzuki through their respective showroom network. The all-new SUV will get only a petrol engine option and in all possibilities will be powered by the 1.5-litre petrol engine option.
Maruti Suzuki Jimny
The production of the Maruti Suzuki Gypsy came to an end after decades. The extremely popular vehicle, which is sold primarily to the armed forces and cops was discontinued in the market due to the newer rule. However, Maruti Suzuki is expected to bring the replacement of Gypsy, which was launched last year globally. The Jimny will be a lightweight off-roader that will get the 4X4 system. It will be powered by the 1.5-litre petrol engine of the manufacturer.
Maruti Suzuki Ignis
Maruti Suzuki launched the Ignis to attract young car buyers. The hatchback is inspired by the SUV design but it is not as sharp as the rivals like Renault Kwid. Maruti Suzuki will launch a redesigned version of the Ignis that will offer a more aggressive styling to take on the rivals. The Ignis will continue to offer the BS6 compliant petrol engine in the market.
Maruti Suzuki S-Cross petrol
Currently, only the S-Cross and the Vitara Brezza are the two models from the manufacturer that offer petrol engine option. The manufacturer will soon launch the Vitara Brezza facelift powered by the petrol engine options. The manufacturer will also bring in the petrol-powered S-Cross possibly with a mild facelift. The S-Cross will use the 1.5-litre petrol engine of the brand.
Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza
The upcoming Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza will be launched at the 2020 Auto Expo. The facelifted vehicle will get a new face because of a new grille, new bumper, and new foglamps. However, the overall design of the vehicle will remain the same. The Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza facelift will be launched with a 1.5-litre petrol engine that will offer a 4-speed automatic transmission as an option.
