In the long list of upcoming Maruti Suzuki cars, we have brought you a lowdown of three SUVs, an MPV, a sedan and two hatchbacks
On the back of becoming the best-selling SUV maker this FY, Maruti Suzuki is planning a big product assault over the next three years in the domestic market as it targets new SUV segments and will compete in the burgeoning electric space. Here we have brought you a rundown of the possible upcoming models:
1. Maruti Suzuki Y43 Micro SUV:
An all-new micro SUV to take on Tata Punch and Hyundai Exter is said to arrive by 2026 and it will be positioned below the Brezza and Fronx. It is expected to feature a 1.2L Z series petrol engine with mild hybrid tech and it could be based on the Heartect platform.
2. Maruti Suzuki Y17 Grand Vitara:
The seven-seater version of the Grand Vitara will likely have the same wheelbase as the existing model and it could get minor cosmetic revisions inside and out. It will be launched next year and expect it to use the familiar 1.5L strong hybrid petrol engine.
3. Maruti Suzuki eVX:
The first electric SUV from Maruti Suzuki based on the eVX concept will arrive later this year. The five-seater midsize SUV is based on the YY8 platform derived from Toyota’s 40PL and the claimed range figures could be around 500 km on a single charge. It will spawn a Toyota sibling in early 2025.
4. Maruti Suzuki YDB Compact MPV:
The forthcoming compact MPV is internally codenamed YDB and it will lock horns with Renault Triber. The seven-seater will draw plenty of inspiration from Spacia MPV but it will be longer and more practical. The sliding doors could be ditched too and the 1.2L Z series engine, which will debut in the new-gen Swift, could find its way to the YDB as well.
5. New-Gen Maruti Suzuki Swift & Dzire:
The new generation Maruti Suzuki Swift has been caught testing in India quite a few times and it will go on sale in H1 2024 and will be followed by the new Dzire. Both will boast evolutionary design changes while a new 1.2L Z series mild-hybrid petrol engine could replace the existing K series unit.
6. Maruti Suzuki Compact Electric Hatchback:
The Maruti Suzuki electric hatchback will likely be based on the eWX concept showcased at the Japan Mobility Show 2023. It will be underpinned by a dedicated skateboard EV platform developed from the ground up. The e-hatch will compete with the Tata Tiago EV, Citroen eC3 and MG Comet EV.
