Here is a list of all the five cars that will be launched by the market leader in the coming few months.
Maruti Suzuki Vitara

Maruti Suzuki Vitara was spotted testing in India for the first time. The all-new SUV will take on the likes of Hyundai Creta and Tata Harrier in the Indian market and will be positioned as the most expensive car from the manufacturer. The engine option of the upcoming Vitara is not known but we may get to see the 1.5-litre petrol engine doing the duty on it when it launches.
Maruti Suzuki Ertiga Cross

Maruti Suzuki will launch a premium version of the Ertiga in the Indian market in the coming days. Based on the all-new Ertiga, the Cross will get thick body cladding all around. It will be a more premium version of the current model and will get captain seats in the second-row. Apart from the visual changes on the outside and a plusher cabin, the new Ertiga Cross will carry the same 1.5-litre petrol engine with a mild-hybrid set-up. It generates a maximum power of 104 Bhp and 138 Nm. Maruti is expected to launch the car with both manual and automatic transmission options.

The Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza is currently the best-selling Utility Vehicle in the Indian market and is extremely popular in the market.
