Maruti Suzuki has been on a launch spree this calendar year and more recently the new generation Brezza compact SUV stepped into the market.

Up next, the brand will introduce the Grand Vitara midsize SUV this month and it has several commonalities with the soon-launching Toyota Urban Cruiser Hyryder. In early 2023, Maruti Suzuki will likely debut the Baleno Cross, internally codenamed YTB, ahead of its market launch while the Jimny lifestyle off-road SUV is also bound for next year.
