Two car models are currently being produced by Maruti Suzuki at prices below Rs 5 lakh and expanded in their portfolio of entry-level services where the emergence of appropriate safety and emissions regulations would ease competitiveness. The local Suzuki Motor unit from Japan currently provides an 800cc motor and a 1 liter choice on the Alto and Celerio.
The existing on market Alto hatchback, introduced back in 2012 is expected to be replaced by the latest 800cc entry-level model. The upcoming hatchback is presumably powered by the Suzuki HEARTECT-K structure that is also shared by the S-Presso and the latest WagonR. It includes the BSVI compatible 800cc engine which generates a torque of 47bhp and 69Nm. Both manual and AMT models may be available.
Maruti Suzuki operates to arm the new 800cc hatchback with several innovative characteristics to perform so well against Renault Kwid. Suzuki’s intelligent storage infotainment system is expected to be powered by Android CarPlay and Apple CarPlay. The main features include double front airbags, EBD ABS, reverse parking alarms, seating belt reminders, and speed alerts.
There is still to be released the exact launch information on the next Alto genre, but it is possibly expected in 2022. An electric hatchback on the updated WagonR hatchback is also being planned by Maruti Suzuki. The design will possibly be available in 2021-22. An executive of the industry claimed that Maruti Suzuki tries to ensure that their models are affordable even under the new regulatory scheme and that it retains more than 50% market share.
Kenichi Ayukawa, managing director of Maruti Suzuki stated there would be an 800cc car among several models, but he did not explicitly speak about the 2nd model work. As Hyundai Motor India and Tata Motors have had their pass at the entry-level area, the country’s largest auto manufacturer develops the newest car models.
