Along with the Ignis, Maruti Suzuki also announced the Baleno RS for the Indian market. Scheduled to be launched in the first quarter of 2017, the Baleno RS is a more powerful version of the successful Baleno hatchback. This increase in power can be attributed to the all new 1.0 L Boosterjet engine, which produces around 110 bhp of peak power. Competition: Volkswagen Polo GT, Ford Figo 1.5, Fiat Punto Abarth

The popularity of the compact SUV segment in the country is growing by the day attracting some of the biggest manufacturers to try their hand at developing one. The segment, earlier ruled by the Ford EcoSport, is now led by the Vitara Brezza. First showcased as the XA-Alpha in 2012, the Vitara Brezza is currently on sale with only a Diesel heart. Powering the Vitara Brezza is a 1.3 L Multijet diesel engine, borrowed from the Ciaz/S-Cross, mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. Now, it is being said that the Brezza will soon get the 1.0 L Boosterjet turbocharged Petrol engine that will power the Baleno RS. This engine has a max. power of 110 BHP and a peak torque of 170Nm.

The 7 Seater Wagon R MPV is definitely taking a long time coming but is an important Maruti Suzuki new car launch. Showcased several years ago, the Wagon R 7 Seater model could finally be inching closer to its launch. Compared to the regular model, the Maruti Wagon R MPV will come with a higher ground clearance, a more feature-laden interior and a seating capacity of seven. Maruti is known to price its cars ultra competitively and the Wagon R MPV should be no different. It will rival the likes of Datsun Go+ and even the Eeco from Maruti’s own stable. This car is likely to go on sale with the 1.0 L K10 petrol (from the regular Wagon R).

The Diesel-powered Swift comes equipped with a 1.3 L DDiS motor that churns out a max. power of 74bhp and a peak torque of 190Nm.
