Maruti Suzuki brought out its first car in December 1983 and has been serving the needs of Indian car buyers till date. This article briefly describes the Maruti Suzuki cars available in our country as of now.
The new emission norms just pushed the Maruti Suzuki 800 from 13 cities. But that doesn't change the fact this car is India's iconic car that actually put India on wheels. I first came in 1980 and today, the 800 stands as status symbol for the Maruti brand. It is available as 4 variants: Standard MPI BS III, AC MPI BS III, DUO Standard BS III and DUO AC BS III.
The A-Star is Maruti's first car to come with the latest engine technology, the KB Series engine. The car comes as LXi, VXi, and ZXi variants in India. The Penta Drive, great engine ventilation and the amazing fuel efficiency in the A-Star add more value to this made-in-India car.
The Alto comes with BS III and BS IV compliant engines. The 796cc engine stirs up 46 bhp and 62 Nm of torque and the stiff suspension takes care that the bumpy roads don't send a harsh message to the occupants in the Alto. With great fuel economy and chic interiors, this car deserves to be at the top in the small car segment.
The Eeco is one car that perfectly suits the Indian families and Indian roads. The five door car has a superior suspension, encouraging smooth drives on the humpy bumpy roads. It comes with a BS IV compliant engine that churns out 73 bhp of power at 6000 rpm. Available in three variants, 5STR STD, 5STR A/C and 7STR STD, this petrol engine sure gives full value for money.
Pushing the Zen name into history, Maruti Suzuki has come up with the futuristic and stylish Estilo. The acceleration, gorgeous styling, spacious interiors and powerful engine put together in this cost-effective car, put it on top of the charts.
The Grand Vitara, an SUV loaded with power and style. The vehicle gets its power from a 163-bhp 2.4-liter VVT petrol engine. The Grand Vitara comes with an all-time four-mode 4WD system and is packed with a whole lot of safety features. The roomy vehicle with McPherson strut front suspension and multi-link rear suspension sure offers a smooth ride.
India's first off-road vehicle, the Maruti Suzuki Gypsy has a simple yet very powerful structure. The interiors of this light-weight SUV have just the right amount of features to make off-road drives truly enjoyable. The MPFI petrol engine is mated to a 5-speed all synchromesh manual transmission that offers almost seamless shifts.
