Over the next few months, we will see plenty of action in the SUV segment while an all-new EV will also be launched in the form of MG Comet

Maruti Suzuki is preparing to launch two all-new SUVs back to back in April and May while Kia’s much-awaited Seltos facelift is also expected to arrive in the coming months. In the luxury space, the new Lexus RX will step in and here we have covered all the key details about them:

1. Maruti Suzuki Fronx:

The Compact SUV coupe known as Fronx made its debut alongside the Jimny in January at the 2023 Auto Expo. The five-seater is based on the Baleno and it derives power from a 1.2L NA petrol and a 1.0L three-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine with manual and automatic transmission choices. It draws design cues from the Grand Vitara and the features list will be more or less similar to the Baleno.

2. Maruti Suzuki Jimny:

The lifestyle off-roader, Maruti Suzuki Jimny, will be launched in India in May 2023 – a month following the launch of the Fronx. The five-door SUV has larger proportions than the global three-door model as it is more practical with a roomier cabin. The Jimny is powered by a 1.5L four-cylinder K15B petrol engine, paired with a five-speed MT or a four-speed AT with a standard 4WD system.

The tiny electric hatchback will be available with a 20-25 kWh battery with a claimed driving range of around 300 km and its starting price could be from Rs. 10 lakh (ex-showroom).
