6 Upcoming Maruti Suzuki cars to India in 2017/2018
Maruti Suzuki is having one of their best runs in the Indian market. Not only is their Vitara Brezza selling exceptionally well, the manufacture has also tasted success with other premium offerings like the Ignis, Baleno and even its recently launched RS variant. This is apart from their strong hold in the entry level space. With production up to the brim, Maruti’s work load will only increase with the launch of even better cars that are lined up for late 2017 and early 2018.
Here are some of them:
Maruti Suzuki Swift facelift
The Swift is Maruti’s biggest cash cow in India and even though it has been around for quite some time, the car hasn’t shown any signs of weakness yet. The Swift will see its biggest update since launch on the 2017 model.
The Swift facelift has been thoroughly restyled and gets a new front fascia, interior and rear. Changes are evolutionary and not a complete overhaul.
The swift will continue to be positioned below the Baleno and prices should start at Rs. 5 lakhs.

|Price||Rs. 5 lakhs|
|Launch date||Q3 2017|
Maruti Suzuki Swift dZire facelift
Unlike previous generation, the 2017 Swift and Swift dZire will be less similar. However, the dZire too gets its own share of changes and has become better looking as a compact sedan.
Interior has been updated as well and is very likely to be shared with the Indian-spec 2017 Swift.

Maruti Wagon R
Suzuki had recently updated their Japanese-spec Wagon R and a new version of the popular car is expected to reach India by 2018. While the Japanese model came with evolutionary design changes, it is still unclear how the Indian spec model will look like.

|Price||Rs. 4.25 lakhs|

Within a short span of time, the Maruti Vitara Brezza has become the most selling compact SUV in India. Since it already has a 5-6 month waiting period, launch of its petrol variant has been delayed so as accommodate demand.
Power for the Brezza petrol comes from a 1.0-litre BoosterJet petrol engine producing 100.5 BHP and 150 Nm of peak torque
|Price||Rs. 6.5 lakhs|
|Launch date||Late 2017|
Though a solid car, the Maruti Suzuki S-Cross didn’t fare so well in the India market. The new generation S-Cross however, addresses many shortcomings of the current model. It gets a SUV-like exterior and more premium interior.

This is pretty much a rumour at the moment but it is heard that the 4th generation Jimny might be produced and launched in India (possibly as a Gypsy).
