Maruti Vitara might launch in India. Next Premium SUV in making?
India’s largest auto-maker Maruti Suzuki is planning something big on its CUV/SUV (compact utility vehicle / sports utility vehicle) offerings in India. There are also reports from many automotive portals that the car has patented the New Maruti Vitara drawings in India. In some international markets, the new Suzuki Vitara falls below the range of Maruti S Cross, but in India they might offer the New Vitara as premium class car like S Cross. The car will include premium features like AWD, Panoramic roof and more…
The all new Maruti Vitara could hit Indian roads during late 2016 or early 2017.
The new Vitara could straight away take on the likings of Mahindra XUV500 and Skoda Yeti. There are 2 primary reasons why Vitara could make a comeback in India:
- Maruti’s premium Nexa Showrooms currently features only S-Cross as of now. Vitara could be exclusively made available at Nexa showrooms in India there by increasing the size of premium car portfolio.
- Just like Maruti S-Cross, the new Vitara would be powered by 1.6L Diesel engine.
The upcoming Vitara from Maruti Suzuki is based on the iV-4 concept and is expected to be made available in 5 seater option that could accommodate 7 passengers at once. The previous generation Maruti Vitara bombed in the market, primarily because of its very high pricing. This time, Maruti Suzuki might locally assemble the new Vitara to reach much wider audience.
