Maruti Suzuki India Limited has been the largest car manufacturing company in India since 1982 and is also the company with the highest automobile market share in India. And with its car performing exceptionally well, there is no competition for the carmaker in India as for now. The strongest point for the company has been its hatchback affordable cars since the start and even now after around 4 decades, its hatchbacks are still amongst the top 5 spot holders as the best-selling cars for each month. But now Maruti Suzuki is wanting to widen its range to the SUV segment which hasn’t been performing so good for the company. The current SUV segment is right now ruled by the Korean companies Hyundai and Kia. To give these companies run for their money Maruti Suzuki is planning to launch its SUV cars in the coming years.
Here is the list of Maruti Suzuki upcoming 5 new SUVs in India.
- Baleno inspired Tata Nexon rival
Maruti Suzuki is planning to introduce a new sub-4-meter crossover SUV, which has been codenamed YTB by the company. This upcoming car is meant to be inspired by the ongoing Baleno and will most likely be produced with the same specs with a renew exterior as well as interior and will most likely be placed a bit above the Baleno although currently, the company has Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza in this segment but with the addition of this car, the competition will most likely be heating up.
- Next gen Vitara Brezza
The ongoing Vitara Brezza has already received its facelift last year, but the company doesn’t seem satisfied with its sales, so the carmaker has finial decided to introduce the new generation upgrade for the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza. There was a time the Brezza was the best-selling SUV however due to its every year updating rivals like Creta and Seltos, the Brezza has lost its grip on the market. And it will be interesting to see what the future holds for the car as the car will most likely be launched before the start of the next year.
- S-Cross rebadged
Maruti is also planning to introduce an SUV that will stand just above the Vitara Brezza and can also be named the S-Cross rebadged version. The car has been codenamed D22 and will likely be a competitor to some of the best-selling SUVs. Nothing much has been known about the car yet except the information already told.
- Toyota Maruti Raize rebadged
Toyota and Maruti are working on a project which will be introduced in the market next year, the project will be placed above the current Urban cruiser and will be giving competition to some of the major cars. There is also the chance that the car might be the rebadged version of the recently Indonesia launched Toyota Raize while is a perfect fit for the company.
- 5-Door Jimny
The 5-Door Jimny has been one of the most anticipated cars of the company. The Jimny was first showcased at the 2020 Auto Expo however the car was a 3-door version which later on company confirmed that the upcoming Jimny would be a 5-Door version rather than the 3-Door and will most likely be powered by a 1.5-litre engine as default.
