Maruti Suzuki is expected to bring in a host of new offerings over the next year or so and here we have covered you with all the details
Maruti Suzuki is planning to introduce a host of new products over the next year or so. At the 2023 Auto Expo, the largest carmaker in the country will unveil the five-door Jimny and the Baleno-based YTB crossover. The former will go on sale at the beginning of the next financial year while the latter will likely be launched in the second quarter.
1. Maruti Suzuki YTB:
The YTB will be powered by a 1.0-litre three-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine producing around 100 PS maximum power and it will be underpinned by the Heartect platform. The design will take inspiration from the Grand Vitara midsize SUV and it will have a coupe-like roofline. The interior will boast premium elements such as a floating touchscreen infotainment system.
2. Five-Door Maruti Jimny:
The five-door Jimny will take on the upcoming five-door Mahindra Thar and five-door Force Gurkha and it will have a longer wheelbase compared to the global three-door Sierra. It will derive power from a 1.5-litre four-cylinder K15B mild hybrid petrol engine developing around 103 PS and 138 Nm. It is expected to be paired with a five-speed MT or a four-speed AT transferring power to all four wheels via Suzuki’s All Grip Pro 4WD system.
3. Maruti C-MPV:
The Indo-Japanese manufacturer will also reportedly bring in its most expensive offering in the form of a premium C-segment MPV. It will be a badge-engineered version of the Toyota Innova Hycross and will likely draw design cues from the Grand Vitara and the global crop of Suzuki models. It will be powered by a 2.0-litre NA petrol and a 2.0-litre strong hybrid petrol engine. Expect it to go on sale in late 2023.
4. Next-Gen Maruti Suzuki Swift:
The next-generation Suzuki Swift appears to make its world premiere sometime next year and it will likely reach India in the first half of 2024. It will continue to use the existing powertrain while a 1.2-litre strong hybrid petrol unit targeting a claimed fuel economy of 35-40 kmpl is a high possibility. The design will take an evolutionary approach with modern styling elements.
5. Next-Gen Maruti Suzuki Dzire:
Around the same timeframe as its hatchback sibling, the third-generation Maruti Suzuki Dzire will likely be introduced in Q1 or Q2 of 2024 CY. It will share the powertrain options with the next-gen Swift and the frontal design could also be similar. The interior will be more premium than the existing model.
