Top 5 Upcoming Cars From Maruti Suzuki In 2021: Alto, Swift, Ertiga & More!
The arrival of 2021 will also bring some fresh launches which Maruti Suzuki is planning to launch in the Indian market next year.
So far, the largest carmaker of India has an extensive product portfolio from entry-level hatchbacks to SUVs and MPVs.
Let’s go through the list of the top five vehicles that Maruti is planning to launch in the coming future.
1. Maruti Swift Facelift
Earlier this year, the Suzuki Swift facelift was launched in Japan and its Indian counterpart is expected to arrive in the Indian market next year.
Mostly, the changes to the vehicle will be aesthetic in nature as the hatchback will continue to be powered by the 1.2-liter petrol engine, with 83 PS and 113 Nm on tap.
2. New-generation Maruti Alto
The carmaker has been road-testing the next-gen model of the Alto for a while and prototype vehicles have been spotted multiple times on the streets of India.
Compared to the current one, the new model is expected to be larger in size to offer more interior space and will be underpinned by the Heartect K platform, which is also present on the S-Presso.
The powertrain is expected to be the 1.0-litre ‘K10’ motor (67 PS and 90 Nm) to return.
3. New-generation Maruti Celerio
The upcoming next-gen Maruti Suzuki Celerio Spy pictures have also been floating around the internet for quite some time.
Like Alto, the new Celerio will be expected to grow in dimensions compared to the current version.
So the improvement in the interior space, as well as boot space, is expected too.
The one thing which wont change is that the next-gen Maruti Celerio will continue to be powered by the 1.0L K-series engine (67 PS and 90 Nm).
Although, a 1.2-liter engine (83 PS and 113 Nm) may be available on the higher variants.
With the transmission options of a 5-speed manual and a 5-speed AMT, it is expected to launch during the first quarter of 2021.
4. Maruti Wagon-R EV
In the coming year, Maruti Suzuki is also expected to take its first step with the Wagon-R EV into the fast-growing electric car market.
The vehicle has already been spied on countless times in India and speculations also have been floating around the internet for more than a year.
According to the manufacturer, they were not sure about the viability of an EV as a personal mobility vehicle.
That is why the launch has been delayed multiple times.
Although, the carmaker has recently stated that they are planning to launch the Wagon-R EV as a commercial vehicle, targeting fleet operators.
5. Maruti Ertiga Diesel
A test mule of the Maruti Suzuki Tour M (a commercial variant of the Ertiga) was spied on during testing, just a few months ago.
Interestingly, the vehicle wasn’t wearing any camouflage and didn’t have visual changes.
So, we can say that the changes it sported were of a mechanical nature as the prototype was testing a new diesel engine and gearbox.
It is expected to be powered by either a 1.3-litre unit or a 1.5-litre unit and will also come mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox.
