While the former will come into effect from October 2019, the latter one will be enforced from April 2020.
This year, the company will give a generation change to its two popular hatchbacks – Maruti Suzuki Alto and Celerio. Prior to that, Maruti Suzuki will bring in the facelifted version of the Ignis along with introduction of its in-house developed 1.5L diesel engine to Ciaz sedan, S-Cross crossover and Ertiga MPV model lineups.
The production version of the Maruti Suzuki Future S Concept will also hit showrooms during 2019 festive season. The Indo-Japanese carmaker plans to introduce its first electric vehicle – WagonR EV – sometime in 2020.
Next year, the company will also bring in its most expensive car – the rebadged Toyota Corolla Altis – under Suzuki-Toyota partnership. The rebadged Corolla might come with BS6-ready 1.5L petrol and diesel powertrains. It will be retailed via Maruti Suzuki’s premium NEXA dealerships.
