Upcoming Maruti Cars in India – Under 5 Lakh
New Maruti Small Car (Crosshiker)
|Price||₹ 2.70 lakh – 4.50 lakh|
|Specifications||0.8-litre petrol/1.0-litre petrol|
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.
|Price||₹ 4.50 lakh – 6.00 lakh|
The WagonR is one of the most popular nameplates of Maruti Suzuki. A tallboy hatchback, it is praised for its headroom and small dimensions. 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 rigidity of the structure. The launch will take place in next year’s festive season. The New Maruti WagonR will likely sport a 1.0-litre petrol engine under the hood. Also, do expect an AMT gearbox to be on offer on the car.
|Launch Date||October 2019|
|Price||₹ 2.60 lakh – 4.00 lakh|
|Specifications||0.66-litre turbo petrol|
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.
|Price||₹ 4.50 lakh|
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 Maruti Cars in India – Under 10 Lakh
|Launch Date||Second Half 2018|
|Price||₹ 7.07 lakh – 9.81 lakh|
|Specifications||1.0-litre turbo 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.
|Launch Date||First Half 2018|
|Price||₹ 7.50 lakh – 10.50 lakh|
|Specifications||1.4-litre petrol/1.3-litre turbo diesel|
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.
|Price||₹ 6.50 lakh – 8.50 lakh|
|Specifications||1.0-litre petrol/1.3-litre turbo diesel|
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.
|Launch Date||August 2018|
|Price||₹ 6.75 lakh – 11.00 lakh|
|Specifications||1.4-litre petrol/1.0-litre turbo petrol/1.5-litre petrol/1.5-litre turbo diesel|
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. The all-new Ertiga is likely to launch in India this year itself. 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.
|Launch Date||March 2018|
|Price||₹ 12.30 lakh – 12.70 lakh|
|Specifications||1.6-litre turbo 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. This engine will make its way into 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 Maruti Cars in India – Under 15 Lakh
|Launch Date||April 2018|
|Price||₹ 12.00 lakh – 16.00 lakh|
|Specifications||1.6-litre turbo diesel|
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. 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.
|Launch Date||October 2018|
|Price||₹ 10.00 lakh – 12.00 lakh|
|Specifications||1.4-litre turbo petrol/1.0-litre turbo petrol|
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. This car will likely be showcased at Auto Expo 2018, where you can get to see it too.
So, these are all the upcoming new Maruti cars you will likely see in future. We hope you liked our list. Please let us know your thoughts on the story in the comments below. For more such stories, stay tuned to Car Blog India.
