Maruti Suzuki to discontinue diesel engines by 2020

Maruti Suzuki to discontinue diesel engines by 2020

-Maruti Suzuki to phase out all diesel by April 2020,

-Might continue with the 1.5-litre engine if there is enough demand, but smaller engines will cease to exist.

Maruti Suzuki is ready to kick the bucket on small diesel engines come April 2020. The carmaker might discontinue selling diesel engines altogether, even for SUVs, but might bring back the 1.5-litre unit if there is demand for it. 

With the BS-VI emission norms kicking in next year, the fate of Maruti’s trusted old 1.3-litre DDiS has been sealed. It won’t be renewed to comply with the stringent emission norms and this will pave an opportunity for the carmaker to work on the petrol, CNG, hybrid and EV powertrains. We already saw the introduction of the Dualjet petrol motor with Smart Hybrid technology in the Baleno. So we can expect that in coming years, the gasoline engine might become equally efficient and thereby, end the need of an oil burner. 

However, what remains to be seen is what will happen with the segment leader Vitara Brezza which is only available with the diesel engine that is about to go obsolete. We assume that Maruti Suzuki might plonk the newly developed 225DDiS diesel in the compact SUV besides the introduction of a petrol motor.
