Default New Vitara this summer through the CBU route..

"it will launch the new Vitara this summer as a completely built unit"
This was part of the announcement on SX4.. CBU route for the new Vitara means another one fighting for a few hundred units - god the D (in terms of price) segment of SUV's is getting crowded..


Maruti lines up SX4 to take on City

TIMES NEWS NETWORK[ MONDAY, APRIL 23, 2007 03:30:00 AM]


NEW DELHI: A new model, new platforms and a new engine strategy for the future. Car market leader Maruti is readying for some top-gear action with the May launch of its new mid-size car SX4.

The new car, which debuted globally at the Geneva motor show, will replace Baleno which was phased out a couple of months ago but will be likely positioned higher in the mid-size market to take on market leader Honda City which also does not have a diesel variant.

The other two top players, Ford and Hyundai both sell more diesel versions of the Fiesta and Verna. To be launched in two trims, the SX4 will come with 79% local content and is a brand new platform for Maruti. Speaking at the event which showcased the model, Maruti MD Jagdish Khattar said, “This is the third platform in the Maruti stable and we may bring a fourth one in the future above the SX4.”

Currently Maruti has two platforms spanning it’s A and B segment models. The SX4, Mr Khattar said, would help Maruti get back customers who upgraded out of its stable. “There are many customers who would like to continue with Maruti but we didn’t have products for them because we weren’t present in those segments,” he said.

“Now that we are with a product like SX4 they will return.” Between the Esteem and the SX4 Maruti expects to cover the entire range of the mid-size market. The new platform will also tie in with an engine strategy to cover both Euro4 and Euro5 compatibility.

Already the company is carrying out phase localisation of the MSeries engine of the SX4 and the first phase is complete. As for future engines, not only will all future models have new engines but also existing ones. And the new avatars would also have different engine displacement capacity.

Although Maruti is not planning to introduce a hatch version of the SX4, available globally, it will launch the new Vitara this summer as a completely built unit. The new SX4 sedan is the third platform added to the stable of Maruti, with one for cars like for Alto and Zen Estillo and WagonR, and another for Swift.

Putting at rest speculations that the Swift’s diesel variant will eat into the sales of its petrol variant , Mr Khattar said,“ Before the launch of the diesel variant, Swift was selling about 3,000 units a month. Currently, we are selling about 4,500 units of the petrol variant and 2,500 units of Swift diesel,” he said, adding that in March, Swift’s total retail sales stood at 9,000 units.

He attributed the petrol sales to fixed number of engines allocated by Suzuki Powertrain India (SPIL), which has led to long waiting periods for the diesel variant.

Exactly! and we were discussing a price range of 10-12L and how that would be a great C segment SUV that was missing.. This quote is from today's ET.. Are they trying to confuse us or the competition?
