Posted on: Mar 9, 2017 - 11:09am IST
Will likely begin with facelifted Maruti Ciaz.
Maruti Suzuki had announced in 2015 that it will launch 20 new models by 2020. Eight of these 20 new models are already out, while four of the remaining twelve will go on sale in FY2017-18, according to a new report from The Economic Times.
The development was revealed to the business publication by Randhir Singh Kalsi, Executive Director, Maruti Suzuki. These four models include two upgraded and two new models, Mr. Kalsi said. He didn’t disclose specific model details, but the upgraded models are most likely the facelifted Maruti Ciaz and facelifted Maruti S-Cross.
The facelifted Maruti Ciaz is expected to be the next new launch, followed by the facelifted Maruti S-Cross. Both models will get cosmetic updates and possibly some equipment revisions as well. The S-Cross should remain mechanically unchanged, while the Ciaz is expected to offer a new naturally aspirated 1.5-litre M15 engine that will output around 100 hp.
The new models arriving next fiscal are none other than the next-gen Maruti Swift and next-gen Maruti Dzire. The latter has been spotted undergoing road tests in the country. The report says that the next-gen Maruti Swift will arrive in early 2018, while the next-gen Maruti Dzire would go on sale later this year.
