List of upcoming new Maruti cars at Auto Expo 2018 Delhi
Maruti Suzuki, India’s largest carmaker is always known to unveil its future products at the popular Delhi Auto Expo event. At the 2016 Auto Show, the Indo-Japanese automaker had showcased the Ignis, Vitara Brezza and some of its future cars. While the next edition of this biennial event is still 7 months away, carmakers have already started their preparation to make it a remarkable one. Maruti is also planning to launch a range of new cars at the show, which will be launched in the country by the end of 2019. The company is aiming to enter into different segments, especially in the premium car segment. Here is a list of upcoming Maruti cars at Auto Expo 2018, and their prices.
The first model in our list of upcoming Maruti cars at Auto Expo 2018 is the highly-awaited new Maruti Suzuki Swift. Already on sale in select international markets, the new Swift will officially launch in India at this event. Based on Suzuki’s new HEARTECT platform, the new model is claimed to be over 100kgs lighter than the outgoing model. Keeping new Dzire’s fuel efficiency in mind, we believe that the new model will be the most fuel efficient car in its league. Unlike Baleno, the new Swift will be sold through regular Maruti dealerships. The new model is also likely to get a Sport variant, which is rumoured to be powered by a 1.4-litre turbo diesel engine.
We believe that the Swift RS version will be more feasible for the Indian market. It will be powered by a 1.0-litre Boosterjet petrol engine that is good for 100.5bhp and 150Nm of torque. Besides this, the vehicle will get the existing 1.2-litre petrol and 1.3L MJD diesel engine. Transmission options will include a 5-speed manual and an AMT unit. Read More

India’s largest carmaker is working on all-new cross-hatchback, which is likely to be based on Suzuki Crosshiker concept. If reports are to be believed, the pre-production version of the car will be unveiled at the Auto Expo 2018. It is also one of the most awaited Maruti cars at Auto Expo 2018. The new Maruti small car will rival against the Renault Kwid that has affected the sales of Alto since its launch in 2015.
Maruti is yet to reveal anything on this new product, but it is likely to have SUV-like upright design and a high ground clearance. The small car is expected to be powered by a 1.0-litre K-Series petrol engine that also powers the Alto K10. Both manual and AMT versions are likely on offer. Read More

Buoyed by excellent response for Vitara Brezza, Maruti Suzuki is now planning to launch a 7-seater SUV for Indian market. The seven-seater model will be positioned against the likes of Mahindra XUV500 and Tata Hexa. This SUV will be the most exciting product among all Maruti cars at Auto Expo 2018. It is expected to be called Grand Vitara, which will be based on global Suzuki Vitara SUV. This SUV will be sold through Maruti’s premium dealership network – NEXA – alongside S-Cross, Baleno and Ciaz. Maruti will first showcase this product in its pre-production avatar, while the production car is expected to go on sale towards the end of 2018 or early 2019.
The new Maruti 7-seater SUV is expected to be powered by a 2.0-litre Multijet diesel engine that also powers the Jeep Compass & upcoming Tata Q501. This engine is capable of producing 170bhp and 350Nm of torque. The company might also use the 1.6L MJD unit that also powers the S-Cross. This engine is likely to be paired to a 6-speed manual gearbox. The vehicle could also get Suzuki’s All-Grip 4-wheel drive system. Read More
|Expected Price||Rs 12 – Rs 16 lakh|
|Engine||2.0L Diesel or 1.6L Diesel|
Next model to join the list of upcoming Maruti cars at Auto Expo 2018 is the new generation Wagon R, which is likely to be launched in 2018. Suzuki had launched the new generation Suzuki Wagon R and Stingray in the Japanese market in early 2017. The India-spec model will have different design and completely new interior. The new hatchback is likely to be based on Suzuki’s new generation platform that also underpins the new Swift. However, the company could also use the Celerio platform to keep its cost down. The vehicle will continue to feature the same tall-boy design. It will continue to feature the same 1.2-litre K Series petrol engine that also powers the outgoing model. Read More
|Expected Price||Rs 4 lakh – Rs 6 lakh|

The updated model will get slightly revised exterior and interior. Besides cosmetic changes, the new Ciaz is expected to get new powertrains. Instead of 1.4L petrol engine, the sedan is likely to get a more powerful 1.5-litre engine that is likely to debut with S-Cross facelift.
