The BSVI compliant Maruti Suzuki Swift and Wagon R petrol versions have been rolled out well ahead of the April 2020 deadline
Maruti Suzuki India Limited has informed BSE that it has rolled out the BSVI compliant petrol versions of the Wagon R and Swift. The largest automaker in the country is the first responder to the upcoming BSVI emission standards coming into effect from April 2020. It had already introduced the BSVI compliant 796 cc petrol engine in the Alto 800 while the 1.0-litre VVT petrol and the all-new 1.2-litre K12N DualJet petrol in the Baleno adhere to the stringent norms as well.
Understandably, the arrival of the BSVI compliant petrol variant of the Swift will hike price across all variants and it will differ based on the grades chosen by customers. The ex-showroom price in the Delhi and NCR region will range between Rs. 5.14 lakh and Rs. 8.89 lakh.
The Wagon R received a brand new generation earlier this year and it debuted with the regular 1.2-litre petrol engine from Swift. Sticking to the BSVI standards, the third generation Wagon R gets its 1.2-litre four-cylinder petrol engine upgraded and it has resulted in price increase across variants as well.
Based on the features introduced across different grades, the ex-showroom price in Delhi and NCR varies from Rs. 5.10 lakh to Rs. 5.91 lakh and in other parts of India, the BSVI Wagon R costs between Rs. 5.15 lakh and Rs. 5.96 lakh (ex-showroom).
The company is also revising the prices of the smaller and long-existing 1.0-litre petrol engine in the Wagon R as the prices range between Rs. 4.34 lakh and Rs. 5.33 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi and NCR). In other parts of the country, the 1.0-litre Wagon R costs from Rs. 4.39 lakh and Rs. 5.38 lakh (ex-showroom).
The Indo-Japanese manufacturer has also launched the CNG-spec Alto in LXi and LXi (O) grades and they cost Rs. 4.10 lakh and Rs. 4.14 lakh respectively (ex-showroom). Along the course of this year, Maruti Suzuki will introduce BSVI adhering engines across its lineup while a brand new mass market model based on the Concept Future S is also in the pipeline later this year.
