Re: Maruti's SUV & Crossover plans : New launch every 6 months till 2023

Maruti Suzuki's upcoming S/CUV's to get hybrid powertrains:

- Codenamed 'YFG' will be built on DNGA platform (Daihatsu New Global Architecture), which is a low-cost version of TNGA platform (Toyota New Global Architecture).

The YFG’s styling might draw some inspiration from the Suzuki Vitara, while the Toyota's version could be on the design cues of the Corolla Cross.
These SUV's will be built at the TKM plant in Karnataka.

- Maruti 'YTB' will be a sub-4-metre crossover, which will be based on the Baleno. Priced at a segment below the Vitara Brezza it will be a more affordable alternative to it.
YTB is expected to have a coupe-inspired design, perhaps along the lines of Futuro-e concept that was showcased at 2020 Auto Expo

- Next Gen Vitara Brezza will be launched in late 2021/ early 2022 and will be the first of the SUV's to launch while the other two will come in later part of 2022.


Quote:
Details about the hybrid powertrain are under wraps at the moment, although speculations suggest that it could be Suzuki’s 48V mild-hybrid system and will follow the technology offered in the global Vitara due later this year

So, is the new Brezza going to move up a segment to rival the Creta/Seltos? The Brezza itself is sub 4m car, and if the new YTB is going to be based on the Baleno then it can’t be much smaller.

Personally feel that such a strategy can work as the Brezza is an established nameplate now which can compete in the Creta segment if Maruti Suzuki provides decent powertrains and loads it with features. The following strategy could complete Maruti Suzuki/Toyota’s crossover lineup in India:

1. YTB to compete with the Nexon/Sonet in the sub 4m segment.

2. New Brezza to compete with the Creta/Seltos/Kushaq in the 4.2m-4.3m segment.

3. YFG to compete with the Harrier/Hector

The Brezza's desirability status is nowhere close to the Creta/Seltos. Neither does Suzuki (even with Toyota's backing) have the design/quality nous of the Koreans. Brezza is a VFM reliable option in the city pseudo SUV game, the Creta/Seltos on the other hand is aspirational for most Indian car buyers.

Let's not forget the first gen Creta was launched before the current Brezza, yet Hyundai was already ahead as a better premium offering. With the second gen Creta and its sibling Seltos, they have moved the benchmark leagues out of Brezza's reach.

The car from Maruti stable that can compete with Creta is not Brezza but the SCross. It only needs a more powerful engine, better transmission, more premium interiors and a top of the line infotainment system with connected car tech. Am I wishing too much?

Re: Maruti's SUV & Crossover plans : New launch every 6 months till 2023

The YTB project. Based on the Baleno platform, it will be the cheaper, coupeish counterpart of the Brezza. Cool.

The next gen Brezza is coming, but will be more expensive. Expensive as in next generation expensive? Or so expensive they have to launch the YTB to fill the void? Not sure if they can make it more expensive without going >4m or without any diesels/strong hybrids.

YFG - Based on the DNGA platform to rival Creta/Seltos. Cool. But it was said that the next gen Scross will remain the soft crossover, while the YFG will be the boxier counterpart. Now the YFG will replace the Scross completely?

Maruti Suzuki will be launching an all-new sports utility vehicle next year to expand its footprint in the fast-growing segment in the mainstream market.

Is it the 3 door Jinmy?

Quote:
The development work on the vehicle is underway, which will be introduced shortly

Re: Maruti's SUV & Crossover plans : New launch every 6 months till 2023

So from what I see, the new CSUV from Maruti is going to based on the Daihatsu Rocky/Toyota Raize?

Among other countries, it is already being produced in Indonesia where they are able to sell a rather well loaded example for around Rs 11 lakh with prices starting from around Rs 9 lakh.

Not a bad-looking car and interestingly even in Indonesia it's length is below 4-m - it is 3995mm with a wheelbase of 2525mm.

Powertrain options in Indonesia are a 1.0-litre turbo producing 98 PS and 1.2-litre NA engine producing 86 PS. Transmission options include a manual and a CVT. As an optional package it comes with forward collision and automatic braking, lane-keeping assist etc.

In India of course we will might see it with Maruti's K15 petrol and the new 1.5-litre diesel since those engines are underpowered for the segment.

Re: Maruti's SUV & Crossover plans : New launch every 6 months till 2023

Surprised Maruti hasn't done a substantial facelift of the Brezza in the meantime. Given the Brezza is based on the same platform as the Vitara, they could upgrade it with a new 6 speed AT or CVT and provide 6 airbags along with a significant cabin quality upgrade. Not sure if a sunroof would be possible but if yes they could add that too.

Maruti Suzuki Jimny : Jimny has been finally greenlighted for an India launch.

Quote:
Maruti will position the Jimny as cheekier but practical alternative to the Thar. The company has also begun manufacturing right-hand drive versions of the three-door Jimny for export, and looking at the success of the Thar, itís likely that this model too will be launched alongside the five-door Jimny.

New 2022 Brezza (code: YTA)

Quote:
Slated for a market introduction early 2022, the new Brezza shares it underpinnings with the outgoing car, but gets a new nose section, a new rear and an all new interior. Under the hood, the hybridised version of the 1.5-litre petrol is expected to improve efficiency levels. The new Brezza will be loaded with many upmarket features like a sunroof, larger infotainment screen, wireless charging and even a sim-based connectivity suite. Automatic versions will come with paddle shifters, among other features.
Maruti Compact SUV (code: YTB)

Along with the Brezza, there is another compact SUV in the works. The model will be positioned at the premium end of the compact SUV market and will take on more expensive versions of the Hyundai Venue and Kia Sonet. Expect this SUV to be based on the Balenoís Heartect platform and to have the same 1.5-litre petrol, but with a higher level of hybridisation. This crossover is likely to have a coupe styled roof, a sportier stance and SUV-like cladding. Targeted at a younger audience, it is likely to be the sportiest of Marutiís SUV, and could be the production version of the Futuro-e SUV concept shown at the last Auto Expo in New Delhi.



Maruti Suzuki Creta rivaling SUV (code: YFG)

Quote:
Touted to be the next-gen Vitara, this new SUV expects to be around 4.3 metres in length and based on Toyota and Daihatsuís DNGA modular platform. In fact, the YFG is essentially a Toyota product and both the Toyota and Maruti Suzuki versions of this midsize SUV will be built at Toyotaís Bidadi plant in Karnataka. While the SUVs for each of the brands will share common underpinnings, they will have different top hats with distinctive styling. The mainstay of the range is likely to be a 1.5-litre petrol with a higher degree of electrification. There will be no diesel option.
Maruti Suzuki three-row premium SUV (code: Y17)

An all-new SUV will be Maruti Suzukiís flagship model that will sit right at the top of the SUV line-up. There is little information on this mystery model though.

Rest all are expected models. But which is this one?

And it is not even in Harrier, XUV700, Alcazar segment. They straight plonked it in the Fortuner/Endeavour segment!!! A sticker job on the Fortuner? Or something else? Maybe the return of a Grand Vitara, but this time based on a Toyota platform?

If they are not going to do a Fortuner/Innova sticker job then we have 3 potential suspects here:

1. Stretched version of the International Grand Vitara.

2. Suzuki resurrect the now dead Escudo name on a new platform which was related to the Grand Vitara 2.4 back in the early 2000's. If this is launched Suzuki will likely not call it the Grand Vitara or XL7 as the Grand Vitara name is already taken and the XL7 is what they call the Ertiga in other asian markets

3. Launch a rebadged Nissan Serena called the Suzuki Landy (which the already sell in other markets since 2007). The Serena/Landy looks like a Hybrid between the KIA Carnival and Toyota Vellfire.

Re: Maruti's SUV & Crossover plans : New launch every 6 months till 2023

What a relieving thread for Maruti share holders! Finally some ray of hope for Maruti. Lets wait for more finer details, after seeing new Brezza I have not much hope on this list. Facelift after selling 6-7 lakh units? Come on man!

Interesting thing is that they are going to launch re-badged Fortuner. Its a good move for Maruti, no idea how it will affect Toyota though.

Thanks to Maruti/Autocar for respecting the dead (as of now)- Ford Endeavour.

A pretty mind boggling bit. The international Grand Vitara has been discontinued. But there are plenty of ASEAN websites that mention that the Grand Vitara JT series's platform maybe reused for a bigger vehicle. As delicious as it may sound, highly unlikely to be done.

May work out to be expensive, also I don't know if the Nissan rebadge exercise for the Japan market will find its way to India. Also, the product line clearly mentions it to be arival to the Fortuner/ Endeavour gang rather than Innova/ Carnival.
