The new Vitara was spotted on Indian soil in November, generating rumors of its introduction at the Auto Expo 2016. There is no definitive confirmation from Maruti Suzuki on the launch of the Suzuki Vitara, but given the soaring demand for compact, locally manufactured, SUVs in the market, it would be surprising if Maruti gave the segment a miss.
