Maruti Suzuki brought out its first car in December 1983 and has been serving the needs of Indian car buyers till date. This article briefly describes the Maruti Suzuki cars available in our country as of now.
The new emission norms just pushed the Maruti Suzuki 800 from 13 cities. But that doesn’t change the fact this car is India’s iconic car that actually put India on wheels. I first came in 1980 and today, the 800 stands as status symbol for the Maruti brand. It is available as 4 variants: Standard MPI BS III, AC MPI BS III, DUO Standard BS III and DUO AC BS III.
The A-Star is Maruti’s first car to come with the latest engine technology, the KB Series engine. The car comes as LXi, VXi, and ZXi variants in India. The Penta Drive, great engine ventilation and the amazing fuel efficiency in the A-Star add more value to this made-in-India car.
The Alto comes with BS III and BS IV compliant engines. The 796cc engine stirs up 46 bhp and 62 Nm of torque and the stiff suspension takes care that the bumpy roads don’t send a harsh message to the occupants in the Alto. With great fuel economy and chic interiors, this car deserves to be at the top in the small car segment.
The Eeco is one car that perfectly suits the Indian families and Indian roads. The five door car has a superior suspension, encouraging smooth drives on the humpy bumpy roads. It comes with a BS IV compliant engine that churns out 73 bhp of power at 6000 rpm. Available in three variants, 5STR STD, 5STR A/C and 7STR STD, this petrol engine sure gives full value for money.
Pushing the Zen name into history, Maruti Suzuki has come up with the futuristic and stylish Estilo. The acceleration, gorgeous styling, spacious interiors and powerful engine put together in this cost-effective car, put it on top of the charts.
The Grand Vitara, an SUV loaded with power and style. The vehicle gets its power from a 163-bhp 2.4-liter VVT petrol engine. The Grand Vitara comes with an all-time four-mode 4WD system and is packed with a whole lot of safety features. The roomy vehicle with McPherson strut front suspension and multi-link rear suspension sure offers a smooth ride.
India’s first off-road vehicle, the Maruti Suzuki Gypsy has a simple yet very powerful structure. The interiors of this light-weight SUV have just the right amount of features to make off-road drives truly enjoyable. The MPFI petrol engine is mated to a 5-speed all synchromesh manual transmission that offers almost seamless shifts.
The Maruti Omni is a multi-purpose vehicle that offers value for money. It comes in an array of variants: Cargo MPI, LPG Cargo, Ambulance MPI, Std LPG 5-str, Std MPI 5-str and Std E MPI 8-str. These include BS IV compliant engines. It’s over two decades now and Indians are still not tired of having the Omni on the road. The affordable car with 800 cc MPFi engine provides great mileage.
The Ritz comes in four petrol and three diesel variants. The revolutionary car comes with a K12M engine. The Ritz, the fifth global car from Maruti, is India’s first BS IV compliant passenger car. It is indeed a smart car with a lot of space and the fuel efficiency is quite impressive too.
A perfect mid-sized sedan that is stylish, possesses loads of luxury and is a high performer is the best way one can describe the Maruti Suzuki SX4. It comes in VXi and ZXi variants with a 5-speed manual and 4-speed automatic transmission. This A3 premium segment sedan is powered by a 1.6-litre In-line 4 VVT petrol engine delivering 103 bhp at 5,600 rpm.
The Swift comes with the latest diesel technology with CRDi fuel injection system and the car also has six on-board computers. The car gets its innovative and sporty looks from European styling and Japanese technology. The 5-speed manual transmission sees to it that the ride quality is superb.
The Swift hatchback is reborn as the Swift DZire, a sedan loaded with best-in-class features. The spacious trunk, climate control features, smooth handling, all add up to make the car lovable amongst Indians. The price is low and the 1298 cc petrol engine delivers 87 bhp at 6000 rpm.
The Maruti Suzuki WagonR has seen great sales in India and was supposed to come out with the Duo variant, a car with both petrol and LPG mode. However, for now, Maruti has stopped production of the Duo and will instead come with a new WagonR with a BS IV compliant K10B engine.
