The Maruti Suzuki is the leading brand in the hatchback and entry level sedan segments of the Indian automobile market. The Maruti Suzuki Alto is the bestselling car in India. But with the entry of the compact SUVs and the Cross-overs the competition is becoming tougher. To counter this competition, Maruti Suzuki India Limited (MSIL) is planning to refresh many of their existing products and also to launch new vehicles in the next couple of years.
Many vehicles are getting ready in the Maruti stable for an early 2015 launch. The sedan Swift Dzire is overdue for a facelift. The main attraction of the new Dzire 2015 will be the improved fuel efficiencies. The freshly tuned engines are expected to improve the fuel efficiency by 10%. The Dzire Facelift will have features like body coloured electrically operated ORVMs with turn indicators, smart-key access and push button start/stop.
The Maruti Suzuki XA Alpha unveiled during the 2012 Indian auto show is yet to be launched. As the model show-cased in 2012 is already outdated the MSIL is reconsidering the design details. The XA Alpha is expected to be launched in 2015 at a price of Rupees 6.5 to 10 lakh.
The MPV Suzuki Ertiga has an automatic variant in Indonesia since 2013. The Indian automatic variants are expected in early 2015. The top variants Ertiga ZXi are expected with automatic transmission at a price of Rupees 8 to 9 lakh.
The Maruti Wagon R is already one of the top ten best selling cars in India. The MSIL feels that addition of diesel variants will make it more competitive. The diesel versions of the Wagon R for prices of Rupees 4.2 to 5.3 lakh are expected in the first half of 2015. The fiat engineers are working on a new 1.0 litre engine to be fitted on the diesel Wagon R.
The S-Cross SX4 unveiled in 2014 Indian auto expo is expected in Indian markets in the first half of 2015. The Cross based on the SX4 sedan will have 1.6 litre petrol and diesel engines and the price tag of the car is expected to be between Rupees 8 to 13 lakh.
The SUV Vitara showcased in the 2014 Paris auto show may be launched in the first half of 2015 at a price of Rupees 20 to 25 lakh. A new hatchback code named YRA is a global car undergoing tests. This premium hatchback is expected to be priced Rupees 6 to 10 lakh and may be on the roads in 2015. The off-roader SUV Jimny, the compact SUV coded YBA, the small car Cervo and the mini MPV MR Wagon are also expected in the next few years.
