There are manufacturers who make cars for speed, for luxury, for the wild, for the desert and then they build some which evoke lust and exhibit throat parching desirability. Then there’s Maruti, which has strived hard for years to give us cars that promise to sip fuel through a strangled straw, and surprisingly in the process, some of them turned out to be fun to drive robust products.
A champion of sorts in making ultra-popular hatchbacks, Maruti Suzuki had to bank on the Italians to propel their diesel-powered vehicles. Even till date, their cars continue to live a borrowed life, being propelled by the extremely popular, punchy, yet frugal 1.3-litre Fiat Multijet engine.
