Maruti Suzuki hints at launching a compact SUV this fiscal year

Maruti Suzuki hints at launching a compact SUV this fiscal year

At the recent launch of their new S-Cross crossover, the top officials at Maruti Suzuki hinted at the introduction of a compact SUV for the Indian market soon. The new product might be showcased at the 2016 Auto Expo.

Kenichi Ayukawa, MSI Managing Director and CEO, said, "Sometime in the future, we will launch a compact SUV which will raise our presence in the UV segment by a quantum leap. The concept of the compact SUV was presented as XA-Alpha. This will help us cater to an emerging class of customers who prefer SUV appeal while staying compact."

The upcoming compact SUV will be a sub four-metre vehicle and will be bulked up thanks to the heavy styling elements. We can also expect a tail-gate mounted spare wheel. Despite the company being tight-lipped about the whole thing, reports suggest that the car will borrow cues from the huge Suzuki Vitara SUV, pitting it as a sporty and rugged vehicle.

The new compact SUV might be sold alongside the S-Cross at the Nexa outlets, unless Maruti Suzuki decides to be competitive with its prices. With the introduction of this vehicle, Maruti Suzuki will venture into the compact SUV segment in India, which has been appreciated in our country. The Ford EcoSport grew popular soon after its launch and is now a successful product in the Indian market. With it topping the sales charts for Ford, different manufacturers are also aiming to launch a similar product.
