Maruti Suzuki also unveiled a few more cards with a few of them being the upgraded versions of their predecessors.
The Swift Sport is equipped with a Monroe suspension system¸, sports seats, and bigger brakes. It also features a large grille in the redesigned front, 17-inch alloy rims on the side profile, and restyled two-tone rear bumper with twin exhaust pipes. The vehicle will be locally manufactured in India to get the price down to INR 9.5 lakh.
The Vitara Brezza is in dire need of a facelift, especially now that the competition has grown better looking. With the approaching BS6 deadline, Maruti is already working on a petrol-hybrid powerplant for the Brezza, which will replace the current diesel one. It is speculated that the new powerplant will debut on the facelifted car, so we are expecting it to be the centre of attraction at the Maruti Suzuki section of the Auto Expo 2020.
