Added in: News

The year 2021 has been difficult to say the least for the market leader of the auto industry. Maruti Suzuki had to also suspend it’s operations for a few weeks due to the infamous semiconductor chip shortage. However, the Indian carmaker is ready to win back the market share that it lost this year with a slew of new launches lined up for the next year. Let’s take a look at it:

New Brezza

The next-gen Brezza gets radical design changes when compared to the current Brezza. The front features an upright bonnet which is similar to the current Brezza. It gets a new grille with chrome detailing inside it. The headlights are all new and they feature two L-shaped strips which double up as the LED DRLs. The headlights are LED projector units as seen in other Maruti cars. Other details include a shark fin antenna and an electric sunroof which is a first for any Maruti. The interior is set to get a major overhaul as well.

The center stage is taken up by a large, free-standing touchscreen infotainment system. This new infotainment system gets touch-sensitive buttons and it will come with all the bells and whistles such as Android Auto, Apple Car Play, a built-in navigation system, and connected car features. The next-gen Vitara Brezza is most likely to carry forward the sole petrol powertrain available in the current Brezza. The 1.5-liter naturally-aspirated K15B petrol engine produces 105 PS and 138 Nm of peak torque. The engine could be mated to an upgraded 48V mild-hybrid system.

Like every new Maruti, the next-gen Alto will be based on the Heartect platform. The overall silhouette of the next-gen Alto is quite similar to the current iteration.

The lower half of the bumper gets fog lamps inserts and a C-shaped design element on each side.

Jimny

The Jimny will most likely be sold via the Nexa outlets. We can expect the 3-door Jimny to be launched first, and then it will be followed by the 5-door version which is already under development. Suzuki terms the Jimny as an ‘authentic off-roader’ and is 3550 mm in length, 1645 mm in width, and has a height of 1730 mm. It also has a wheelbase of 2250 mm. While there are two versions of the Jimny on sale in Japan – the standard model and the Sierra, the European market just had the latter. It will compete against the Mahindra Thar and the Force Gurkha in the segment. In terms of powertrains, it will be offered with the same 1.5-liter K15B petrol engine as the international model. This engine generates about 105 hp of maximum power and 138 Nm of peak torque.
