Maruti Suzuki will launch two new SUVs at the 2023 Auto Expo in Delhi next month. Both these SUVs will join the new Grand Vitara-like range. One of these two will be a crossover and a proper 4×4 vehicle.
Both these SUVs are SUV Jimny and Baleno Cross. The Jimny will be the first SUV from Maruti to be a hard-core off-roader, and its 5-door version has been prepared for the Indian market. The new Jimny will also get hard-core off-road capability along with more space.
The other SUV, on the other hand, will be a crossover based on the Baleno hatchback but will get a facelift with new styling and cladding all around. Despite being based on the Baleno, it will have higher ground clearance and will sit below the Brezza in the portfolio. Besides getting the turbo petrol unit in Baleno Cross, many other changes are expected.
Maruti Suzuki is looking to increase its SUV portfolio, and with these two new launches, the space of SUVs in the company’s portfolio will be filled. Both the Jimny and Baleno Cross will be lifestyle SUVs and will be sold through Nexa sales outlets.
Apart from launching these two new SUVs, Maruti will also showcase a concept electric SUV on the first day of the 2023 Auto Expo. The company has established several cars like Baleno, Grand Vitara and the new Brezza in 2022, which will continue in 2023 with the launch of models like the Jimny and Baleno Cross.
