After the success of the new Brezza and Grand Vitara, 2022 has been a wonderful year for Maruti Suzuki. However, despite the success, Maruti still couldn’t regain its 50% market share. And now, in a bid to tackle this situation, Hisashi Takeuchi, Managing Director of Maruti Suzuki, revealed that the company is ready to showcase two new SUVs at the upcoming Auto Expo 2023. One of these would be the much-awaited 5-door Jimny, while the other would most likely be the Baleno-based coupe SUV. Other than these, the MD has also confirmed that the brand will showcase one electric concept SUV (Codenamed YY8), which will be a Creta-sized SUV that might go on sale by 2025.

What to Expect

Other than Maruti Suzuki is all geared up to showcase 16 vehicles at the Auto Expo 2023, will include:
