Maruti Suzuki is the biggest car maker in India, both in terms of sales and market share. It has been able to retain this position for long due to its offerings under Rs 10 lakh, most of which are hatchbacks.

Entering its third generation, the new Maruti Swift is perhaps the most-awaited car in this list of upcoming new Maruti cars in India. In its third generation, the Swift is based on a lighter, more rigid platform than before. This will help it in the areas of mileage and driving dynamics. Another highlight of the new Swift is its design. The all-new Swift will be showcased at Auto Expo 2018 and will likely be launched soon thereafter. Its engine lineup of 1.2-litre petrol and 1.3-litre turbo diesel will, in all likelihood, remain the same.

Maruti Celerio X (Cross)

Launch Date October 2017
Price ₹ 4.10 lakh – 5.30 lakh
Specifications 1.0-litre petrol

Upcoming New Maruti Cars - Maruti Celerio

The Celerio has had its share of ups and downs. While this car was launched in India with a petrol engine, even a diesel engine was made available later. But the sales were quite dismal (by Maruti standards). Hence, Maruti pulled the plug on the diesel model and continues to sell the Celerio with a petrol engine only. It has been on sale for quite some time now and will soon get a new version in the form of a pseudo-crossover. Expect the new look Celerio X (Cross) to come out this festive season with a petrol engine only.

New Maruti Small Car

Price ₹ 2.70 lakh – 4.50 lakh
Specifications 0.8-litre petrol/1.0-litre petrol

Upcoming New Maruti Cars - Maruti Small Car

The Kwid has been roaring success for Renault India. Maruti does not have an answer to that car yet. However, it will likely have an answer to the Kwid in 2018. This car is also expected to show up at Auto Expo 2018. This car will likely sport the same engine lineup as the Alto range. This means 0.8-litre petrol and 1.0-litre petrol engines are what you will likely find under the hood of this car. Expect Maruti to draw inspiration from the Crosshiker concept for this car.

New Maruti WagonR 2018

Launch Date November 2018
Price ₹ 4.50 lakh – 6.00 lakh
Specifications 1.0-K10 Petrol

Maruti will now showcase the 2018 model, which will be all-new generation, at the Auto Expo 2018. The new generation will have more features, more space and higher safety. It will be built on company’s lightweight platform that will decrease the weight and increase the rididity of the structure. Launch will take place in next year’s festive season.

The Alto is Maruti’s most popular car in India. After all, it replaced the Maruti 800, which itself was immensely popular in the country too. The Maruti Alto, over the years, has not changed much. However, that is likely to not be the case soon. Reports suggest that a next-gen Alto is in works and we can expect it here by festive season of 2019 with a 660cc turbocharged engine that will have higher mileage and more power than the current 0.8-litre petrol engine.

Maruti Alto 800 Diesel

Launch Date July 2018
Price ₹ 3.50 lakh – 4.40 lakh
Specifications 0.8-litre turbo diesel

Upcoming New Maruti Cars - Maruti Alto 800 Diesel

This is another significant entry on this list of upcoming new Maruti cars in India. Why? Have you ever heard of the Alto with a diesel engine? No, right? Well, that’s because since the beginning, Maruti never offered the Alto with a diesel engine. However, mid 2018 may see this change. We are likely to see the Maruti Alto with a 0.8-litre turbo diesel engine in July 2018.

Maruti WagonR MPV

Launch Date December 2017
Price ₹ 4.50 lakh
Specifications 1.0-litre petrol

Upcoming New Maruti Cars - Maruti WagonR MPV

Maruti is likely to roll out an MPV based on the WagonR hatchback. This MPV will likely retain the WagonR’s tall-boy design and will be elongated to accommodate a third row of seats. The car is expected to slot below the Ertiga MPV and will likely have a 1.0-litre petrol engine under its hood. Expect the MPV to be out by December 2017.

Upcoming New Maruti Cars in India – Under 10 Lakhs

Maruti Vitara Brezza Petrol

Launch Date November 2017
Price ₹ 7.07 lakh – 9.81 lakh
Specifications 1.0-litre turbo petrol

Upcoming New Maruti Cars - Maruti Vitara Brezza petrol

The Vitara Brezza is the current leader in the compact SUV segment, in terms of sales. However, one big omission, when comparing it with its rivals, is that this car does not have a petrol engine. However, expect the Vitara Brezza to soon get a petrol engine. It will likely get the 1.0-litre turbo petrol BoosterJet engine from the Baleno RS. As to why the price will be as high as that in the table, we have one reason for that. The BoosterJet engine, this car will likely come with, may be imported to India, pushing the car’s cost up.

Maruti S-Cross Facelift

Launch Date October 2017
Price ₹ 8.00 lakh – 12.00 lakh
Specifications 1.5-litre petrol/1.3-litre turbo diesel/1.6-litre turbo diesel

Upcoming New Maruti Cars - Maruti S-Cross Facelift

The S-Cross was the car that kicked off the Nexa retail network of Maruti Suzuki. However, it never quite set the sales charts on fire. Its pricing, apart from its looks, was perhaps not to everyone’s liking. However, the facelifted S-Cross is India-bound has been shown to the world. Maruti is bringing it to India too, festive season being the time when it will likely be here. The engine lineup will remain the same. This means a 1.3-litre turbo diesel DDiS 200 and a 1.6-litre turbo diesel DDiS 320 will be the engines for you to choose from. additionally, a petrol engine, displacing 1.5 litres, will likely be on offer on the S-Cross facelift.

Maruti Ciaz Facelift

Launch Date August 2017
Price ₹ 7.50 lakh – 10.50 lakh
Specifications 1.4-litre petrol/1.3-litre turbo diesel

Upcoming New Maruti Cars - Maruti Ciaz Facelift

The Ciaz is the sales leader in its segment, which has big hitters such as Honda City and Hyundai Verna as well. With the City getting a facelift earlier this year (along with new features), the next-gen Verna is about to enter this space too. This will render the Ciaz as somewhat dated. Hence, a facelift of the car will likely be here in some time, replete with new features too. Expect the engine lineup of the car to remain the same – a 1.4-litre petrol and a 1.3-litre turbo diesel.

Maruti Jimny

Launch Date October 2018
Price ₹ 6.50 lakh – 8.50 lakh
Specifications 1.0-litre petrol/1.3-litre turbo diesel

Upcoming New Maruti Cars - Maruti Jimny

Maruti has not had a proper replacement for the Gypsy. The Gypsy is the true-blue off-roader in Maruti’s lineup. Enthusiasts have been pining for a return of the brand, which may soon be the case. Maruti is likely to bring the Jimny, which will be the replacement for Gypsy, to India in 2018. This car will likely be showcased at the Auto Expo 2018. Expect to find 1.0-litre petrol and 1.3-litre turbo diesel engines powering the car.

Specifications 1.4-litre petrol/1.0-litre turbo petrol/1.5-litre petrol/1.5-litre turbo diesel

Upcoming New Maruti Cars - Maruti Ertiga

The Ertiga is Maruti’s mainstay in the MPV market. It has been the go-to car for folks who find the Toyota Innova Crysta out of their hands but need an MPV nevertheless. Also, it is the only hybrid MPV on sale in India today. An all-new Ertiga is expected to come to India sometime in 2018. This car will likely have either a 1.4-litre petrol engine, a 1.5-litre petrol engine or a 1.0-litre turbo petrol motor. It is expected to come with a 1.5-litre turbo diesel engine too.

Maruti Ciaz 1.6 Diesel

Launch Date March 2018
Price ₹ 12.30 lakh – 12.70 lakh
Specifications 1.6-litre turbo diesel

Upcoming New Maruti Cars - Maruti Ciaz 1.6 Diesel

If there is one engine from Maruti that has seen the least action since launch, it is the 1.6-litre turbo diesel engine. The engine has seen action only in the S-Cross crossover till date. However, this engine is expected to find its way into the engine bay of the Ciaz. This car will likely come out in the early part of 2018. Perhaps, Maruti will bring back the Ciaz RS nameplate with this car. Expect this car to carry a premium of Rs 50,000 over the top-trim Ciaz Alpha Diesel.

Upcoming New Maruti Cars - Maruti Grand Vitara

The Grand Vitara will likely be Maruti’s most premium offering in India. It certainly is the costliest entry on this list of upcoming new Maruti cars in India. Maruti has not had much success in the past in the segments above Rs 10 lakh. However, with Nexa dealerships in place and people warming up to premium products from the carmaker, the company has a chance to rewrite history. The Grand Vitara will likely be showcased at Auto Expo 2018 with launch taking place a few months later. Expect the car to have a 1.6-litre turbo diesel engine under the bonnet. Also, Maruti will likely retail this car from its Nexa dealership network.

New Maruti Swift Sport

Launch Date October 2018

Upcoming New Maruti Cars - Maruti Swift Sport

The Swift Sport is the performance-oriented version of the third generation Swift hatchback. This car sports a number of styling changes over the Swift, including new alloy wheels and a different grille. This car will command quite a bit of price premium over the regular Swift. You will likely find a 1.4-litre turbo Petrol BoosterJet engine in the India-bound Swift Sport. However, don’t be surprised if Maruti plonks the 1.0-litre turbo Petrol BoosterJet engine in this car’s engine bay.
