Maruti Suzuki has three new car launches planned for the Indian market for the year 2020. Check these out here.
Even though the Indian car market is going through a sales slump, worsened by the pandemic outbreak, auto manufacturers are hoping to revive profits in the coming months and preparing accordingly. According to top officials at Maruti Suzuki India Limited, car sales are expected to rise exponentially once the lockdown completely ends. The company has already lined up multiple car launches for this year.
Here, we shall list the three new Maruti cars that have been confirmed for a launch in 2020.
Maruti Suzuki S-Cross Petrol Unveiled | Mileage & Specs | Auto Expo 2020
Maruti S-Cross is one of the least popular Maruti cars in India. Its relatively premium price tag means that Maruti’s biggest USP, affordability, is low on the priority list. Still, the vehicle was actually quite nice, and Maruti has decided to reintroduce the S-Cross in the BS6 with a 1.5-litre petrol engine, the same as the Brezza. A 5-speed manual and a 4-speed torque converter will be the two transmission options on offer. Previously, the S-Cross was available with a 1.3-litre diesel engine, which was also the same as Brezza. This engine was discontinued when Maruti decided to discontinue diesel engines altogether.
Maruti Swift facelift
Maruti Swift Petrol-AMT Mileage Test | India Ki Favourite Hatchback Kitna Deti Hai?
Earlier this year, Maruti Dzire was given a midlife refresh in the form of a minor facelift. Of course, we expected the same for the Swift as well. It has been confirmed that Maruti will be launching a facelift model of the Swift in India soon. The 1.2-litre petrol engine will be upgraded as well, and will offer slightly more power (90 PS and 113 Nm) than before. There’s could be a mild-hybrid option as well, which could help increase fuel economy. Gearbox options will remain the same as before- a 5-speed manual and a 5-speed AMT.
With its SUV-inspired styling and tiny dimensions, the Maruti S-Presso is one of the most unique-looking cars in the company’s range. Other than its design, the car is known for its brilliant fuel economy. For people looking to reduce their running costs even further, Maruti will be introducing its CNG variant as well. It will have the same 1.0-litre, 3-cylinder engine as the regular, petrol-powered S-Presso, but with a factory-fitted CNG kit added on. Transmission options include a 5-speed manual and a 5-speed AMT.
