Along with the Ignis, Maruti Suzuki also announced the Baleno RS for the Indian market. Scheduled to be launched during the 2016 festive season, 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

3. Maruti Vitara Brezza Petrol

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-litre 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-litre 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.

4. Maruti Wagon R MPV India Launch

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 is finally 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 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 two engines– 0.8-litre DDiS diesel (from the Celerio) and the 1.0-litre K10 petrol (from the regular Wagon R).

5. Maruti Swift AMT Automatic India Launch

After the launch of the Dzire AMT, it is now the turn of Swift to get an AMT. The AMT variant of the Swift should further increase the popularity of the hatchback. The AMT for Swift is a 4-speed Magnetti Marelli-sourced unit that will be mated to only the Diesel-powered models. The Diesel-powered Swift comes equipped with a 1.3-litre DDiS motor that churns out a max. power of 74bhp and a peak torque of 190Nm.

6. Maruti Alto 800 Diesel India Launch

The Alto 800 could get the 2-cylinder Diesel engine that powers the Celerio. This 793cc, 2-pot motor is Maruti’s first in-house developed Diesel engine. It has a max power of 47bhp and a peak torque of 125Nm. For the Celerio, this engine offers an unbeatable fuel mileage of 27.62 kpl and we expect a slightly higher mileage figure for the Alto 800. Maruti is yet to release an official word on the Maruti Alto 800 Diesel launch in India, but our guess is that this car will hit the showrooms around July 2016.

7. Maruti S-Cross Facelift, Petrol Model

Maruti S-Cross hasn’t really done too well on the sales charts. However, now the manufacturer plans to launch a Petrol variant of this crossover. The petrol variant should have a significant cost advantage over the currently available diesel engine options – a 1.3-litre Multijet and a 1.6-litre Multijet. Also, the manufacturer could launch the Petrol model along with the facelifted version.

Of course, the design will be all new but it will be more of a evolution of the current design.

Based on the new Swift, the 2018 Dzire will also be lightweight and yet have more cabin space than current model. It will also offer a higher fuel mileage and more features

After tasting success with the Vitara Brezza, Maruti is gearing up to launch the bigger sibling- the Grans Vitara in India.

The Grand Vitara boasts of All Grip 4×4 system. Expect a launch around next year’s festive season.

  1. Maruti gypsy nodel should be given new look new features and also mileage should be increased to 30 per litre it will once again will have great competition in market. Kindly do the needful at the earliest and also price margin should be very nominail it will have a great competition in market

  2. Maruti ground clearing of 165 is very less.
    Is Maruti planing to launch Celerio with 180 mm ground clearing with CNG option ???

  3. Vitara Brezza launch in petrrol AMT Variant would be a real good launch. When can we expect AMT variant of Breezaa?

  4. Looking to the road conditions Maruti must think for model with more groud clearance & people more prefer SUV type vehicle.
    Also to improve quality of Body sheet which is very thin compare to old cars.
    Also one model with two many variants cofusing customer like me for finalising the car and needs / choice become variant.
    It is suggested to go for max three variants like Base/ Medium / High level model. Keeping Safety features common in all model.
    This will help Maruti for maintaining Minimum Inventory of Sapares.
    AlsoMaruti should think for hassels free services per year on nominal charge for atleast 5/7/10 years of period. The Option should be made available at the time of purchase of new vehicle or before expiry of standard warranty.
    Hope Management of Maruti will understand the feelings of customer like us and will surely consider the suggestions for improving aquality of Product & Services.
    Look forward to hear a positive response from a branded company like Maruti.
