If the report turns out to be true, a number of vehicles from Maruti Suzuki’s stable will come equipped with a Harman Kardon, probably only in the top-end variants. Products such as the S-Cross, Baleno, Vitara Brezza, Ciaz and the likes could feature the audio system while products such as the Alto Wagon-R and the Celerio are likely to be given a miss. Once confirmed, the audio equipment company will provide their products to Maruti Suzuki from their manufacturing plant in Pune, Maharashtra.
