Upcoming New Maruti Cars in India

2017 Maruti Swift

Maruti will launch the new generation 2017 Swift in India around Early 2018. The new Swift 2017 is larger, more feature-laden and will even have higher fuel mileage. Of course, the design is all new, but it is more of an evolution of the current design. Engines for India could be carried over from the current models but they will definitely get a re-tune. Expect the new Swift to make its India debut at the 2018 Auto Expo.

2017 Maruti Celerio Facelift

The Celerio has been around for more than three years now and could do with a refresh. And that is exactly what Maruti has in store. Before the end of 2017, Maruti will roll out the new Maruti Celerio 2017 facelift. It will get updates to its exterior and minor tweaks in the cabin as well. Engine and transmission options will remain the same.

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 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.

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 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).

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 will be a 5 speed Magnetti Marelli-sourced unit. In all probability, it will be mated to both the Diesel-powered and petrol powered models of the new Swift. 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. MSIL could roll out AMT variants with the launch of the next generation Swift next year.

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. Also, with the Celerio Diesel not finding enough takers, Maruti might not launch the Alto 800 diesel.
