New models are speculated to be the GEN Next Dzire and Swift while the 2 upgrades could be Ciaz and S Cross!

Maruti Suzuki plans a slew of crossovers/ SUV's. Will take on XUV and also plans a cuv below Vitara Brezza.

The automaker is developing a large SUV, positioned above the compact Vitara Brezza to take on the likes of the Tata Hexa and Mahindra XUV 500, five people aware of the plans told ET. The vehicle is being developed on Suzuki’s Fifth Generation C Platform and is scheduled to go into production in 2020.

Part of it is an SUV-styled hatchback, codenamed Y1K, which maymake the entry in 2019 to take on the Renault Kwid. The company is also studying a separate architecture that could spawn out a small SUV and a hatchback.

It is high time for players like Mahindra to wake up and smell the coffee, or in keeping with the times, should I say "Covfefe"?

If we look at this article from last September's Financial Express, The Vitara Brezza sold an impressive 31,930 units in April-July versus 17,832 units of the Bolero, 15,436 units of the Scorpio, 16,050 units of the KUV100.

And this is with the Vitara Brezza as a diesel-only model. With petrol cars seeing an increasing amount of acceptance in the market, I can only imagine the volumes that the Brezza will swell to with the addition of a petrol powerplant.

Time for Mahindra to bring out, compact, modern, urbane SUVs. Can't wait for Hyundai's response - maybe we'll see the Carlino concept and the Kona on Indian roads sooner.

More on the SUV from Maruti Suzuki.

Maruti Suzuki is likely to add an extra row of seats( 7 seat) to the current Global Vitara for a launch in late 2019/2020. To go on sale at its premium outlet NEXA.

It is believed that Maruti could add a third row to the global Vitara and launch it in India to compete with larger SUVs including Mahindra XUV500 and Tata Hexa.

Highly unlikely with the current global Vitara which measures 4175 mm in length. Suzuki has to extend the Vitara's length to do that. And that may be the reason they are taking this much time (2020 launch!) to launch it.

Was waiting for this query and here is my reply.

The new 7 seat SUV will be the next Gen Grand Vitara and will be a Global product ( see link) with most of the design cues retained from the smaller Vitara.
As of the current trend of recycling names, Suzuki is likely to call this as Grand Vitara.
