Much anticipated Jimny could also manage 5000 bookings in 5 days. But booking amount for Jimny is much higher at 25K compared to 11K for Fronx. While most are anticipating this car to sell in good numbers, only 1500 in 5 days (if correct figure) is quite low for a Maruti. It can't be only for the name ! Can it be ?

Re: Maruti Fronx @ Auto Expo 2023

I am confused between Brezza Vxi AT and Fronx Zeta AT, any suggestions? Brezza offers better build quality, and Fronx offers better features.
Fronx prices are not out yet but I think it will give better value for money due to the lower cess.

It will be wrong to assume that Fronx offers better features in comparison to Brezza. There is slightly more power of the 1.0 turbo and UV cut glass in fronx. But, Brezza also offers few extra goodies like sun roof and ambient lighting. Boot space is 328 in Brezza vs 308 in Fronx. Cabin in Brezza would be more airy with higher head room due to boxy design.
Brezza does not get tax benefits of under 4m category due to its 1.5 litre engine. In the same note, a turbo engine also costs slightly more than naturally aspirated one. I am expecting the fronx to cost 1.5 lakhs (maximum 2.0 lakhs) less than Brezza.

Re: Maruti Fronx @ Auto Expo 2023

The Fronx also has the 1.5-litre petrol option but only for export as of now.

- The returning 1.0-litre turbo petrol is now fully localised, has been calibrated differently for Fronx, gets gpf (gasoline particulate filter).

- The platform remains unchanged.

- Suspension remains the same but gets different spring rate than Baleno. The fronx is 45kg heavier than the Baleno.

- Tyre profile 5mm higher in alloy versions than Baleno.

Suzuki Australia General Manager – Automobile, Mr. Michael Pachota said the introduction of the Fronx will be another steppingstone for Suzuki in Australia to solidify its presence in the Light SUV Segment.

"With the launch of the all new Fronx, we're combining unique sporty styling with SUV heritage, to deliver an exciting new product to our line-up. Not only solidifying our presence in the Light SUV segment, but this vehicle will also open the doors to younger buyers looking to upgrade from a smaller hatchback to an SUV"

Re: Maruti Fronx @ Auto Expo 2023

When do the test drives start? Any tentative timeline for the launch? I am interested in the base variant of Fronx. Hope MS doesn't get too greedy with the pricing.

Re: Maruti Fronx @ Auto Expo 2023

Fronx is a good package, takes the positives of 2022 Baleno and adds to it a proper 6 speed automatic and a boosterjet engine. The front end looks a bit fussy though and would have preferred clean lines.

I am assuming a premium of 1lakh over the Baleno equivalent models.

Hopefully there will be enough gap in pricing between the Fronx and Brezza

Base variant selection is only for customizing according to personal preferences later?

Let's see if the interest and bookings pick up now.

So far it has been abysmal.

Re: Maruti Fronx @ Auto Expo 2023

I couldn't help myself but book the 1.0 booster jet auto... Don't want to keep waiting if I really like the car which I think I will.

Am a huge fan of the Baleno in terms of space and this one increases the ride height and paired with a petrol turbo and a deal TC auto instead of that dead AMT, it looks like a no brainer to me.

Honestly i never imagined Maruti would make this such a looker. I had thought this would just be a Baleno raised on struts and some shoddy plastic cladding.

Re: Maruti Fronx @ Auto Expo 2023

Few details



1. Same platform as Baleno
2. 30 kg heavier than Baleno
3. Spring rate is different compared to Baleno
4. 190 mm GC
5. 900 crore investment and 3+ years of R & D
6 1.0 boosterjet engine is fully localised now

I think Maruti would launch Fronx at very competitive pricing. 1.0 turbo 6AT is interesting

Does spring rate mean suspension, will this mean suspension will be stiffer with the 1.0 turbo engine to make it sportier? I have 2017 Baleno and I like ride quality of this compared to my other car Grand i10.

Any idea on boot space, I saw a figure of 300L or so, will this be smaller than regular Baleno? Also, how is the quality of sheet materials comparing
to prev gen Baleno? My Baleno has extremely thin materials which cause dents damages if you touch something at even very slow speeds.

I had almost booked the Baleno RS back in 2017, but ended up with regular as I could not afford over 10 L at that time. Now the 1.0 L + 6 AT seems a great proposition. Hopefully it's priced reasonably to give it a shot.

Re: Maruti Fronx @ Auto Expo 2023

What did Maruti Suzuki exactly mean by the name FRONX?

Quote:
This is exactly what Maruti Suzuki is doing by going all out to become the leader in the SUV segment by offering something different and refreshing. The uniqueness starts with the name itself, which is shortened to Frontier Next. What really works for the company is the brand recall it commands and the short catchy nameplate of the Fronx that easily sticks to your mind.
Quote:
The Fronx may be called many different things — a crossover or a compact SUV, but we see it more as a coupe SUV, which is a first of its kind. Maruti Suzuki wanted to design a driver-centric vehicle, which doesn’t compromise on aerodynamics, hence, the swooping roofline.
The Fronx could be priced slightly below the popular Brezza and is expected to crash the sub-4-metre SUV party.
