Maruti Suzuki is working on launching at least 5 new cars in India in the next 7-8 months, know more about them:
Ever since its debut in India at the 2020 Auto Expo, the Jimny created a lot of buzz in the country.In Nepal, Suzuki Jimny has always been captured as a brown vehicle that serves the country. However, this Auto Expo 2020season, things are getting exciting. Maruti Suzuki has showcased the Jimny for the Indian accessibility. They are taking Auto Expo 2020 as an opportunity to observe the public’s reaction to Suzuki Jimny.
Maruti Suzuki confirmed that it will be bringing the SUV to India. However, unlike the foreign-spec 3-door SUV, India will be getting an exclusive 5-door version of the car, and a launch is expected in the next 6 to 8 months. The Jimny is expected to be offered with the same 1.5-litre 4-cylinder petrol engine as the Vitara Brezza, which is rated at 105 PS/138 Nm. The engine is expected to be paired to a 5-speed MT along with a low-range gearbox for off-roading. An optional automatic gearbox could also be offered with the SUV.
New Gen Celerio
New Gen Celerio It’s been about 7 years since the Celerio first came out in the market, and to be fair, the car has started to an age now. Its rivals have started catching up, and Maruti Suzuki has certainly realised that. Hence, the carmaker is currently working on launching a new-gen model for the hatchback which could possibly be launched this year itself.
The new-gen Celerio is expected to be offered with the same BS6-compliant 1.0-litre naturally aspirated 3-cylinder K10B petrol engine that performs duties on the current-gen Celerio. However, tons of visual enhancements, as well as new features, will likely be seen.
Swift DualJet 1.2L
The India-spec Swift is set to be facelifted soon, and the mid-life refresh will bring some minor cosmetic updates and a few new features to the table. However, the most noteworthy change will be made under the hood of the hatch. As of now, the Swift is offered with a sole 1.2-litre petrol engine that generates 83 PS power and 113 Nm torque.
The Swift facelift, on the other hand, will be plonked with Maruti’s 1.2-litre DualJet engine that is offered with Dzire facelift, as well as the Baleno. The said engine belts out 90 PS of power and 113 Nm torque, and comes with mild-hybrid tech. This means that both performance and fuel efficiency will be improved.
New 800 cc hatch
The Alto 800 is expected to be replaced by a new 800 cc car soon since the former has become outdated now, while rivals have become much more modern. The new 800 cc car will be based on the same Heartect K platform used by the S-Presso.
The new car will come equipped with a 796 cc, 3-cylinder naturally-aspirated petrol engine that makes 48 PS of max power and 69 Nm of max torque. The transmission duties will be handled by a 5-speed manual gearbox as standard, along with an optional automatic.
Wagon R EV (XL5)
Maruti Suzuki is in the process of launching a fully-electric version of the Wagon R in India, which will go on to become its first EV. The carmaker has confirmed its plans of doing so and even sent 50 Japanese-spec Wagon R EVs for tests in different weathers and terrains across the country in 2018.
However, it should be known that the Wagon R EV sold in India will likely share its design with the regular Wagon R. While details are yet to be revealed, a price of under INR 10 lakh is expected. It will go on to become one of the most affordable electric cars in India and will go on to rival the Mahindra e-KUV100.
