We are almost at the end 2022 and the year has passed by us was filled with new launches, and unveils. 2023 is going to be a busy year too. India’s biggest manufacturer Maruti had a blockbuster 2022, and 2023 is going to be the same. So what cars can Maruti launch in 2023? In today’s article, let’s find out.
One of the most hotly anticipated Maruti products in India is the Jimny. As we all know, Maruti is working on a 5-door version of the Jimny for the Indian market. The 5-door 2023 Maruti Jimny has been regularly spotted testing in India. What has Maruti changed? Maruti has retained the overall silhouette, but there are some subtle changes like new bumpers etc. In terms of specifications, it could get a 1.5-litre engine on the lower variants and a 1.4-litre turbo or 1.5-litre turbo on the higher variants. Maruti is expected to unveil the Jimny 5-door at the Auto Expo of 2023.
Maruti gave the Brezza a major update in 2022. The new Maruti Brezza got changes like a new design and several new features and segment firsts as well. However, one thing the Brezza didn’t get in this update was a CNG setup. There has been want for more CNG products in India and regarding the Brezza CNG, the car was leaked on Maruti’s official site. This leak showed CNG on all variants, even on the automatic variants. If it does get an automatic CNG option, it will be the first CNG car to do so in India. We do think it would be unlikely.
Maruti cars 2023 – Baleno Cross
Another upcoming product from Maruti is the Baleno Cross. It will be quite a unique SUV due to its coupe-like characteristics. For now, the car is codenamed the YTB, and its production version could be called – ‘Baleno Cross’. The car has been spotted testing several times revealing its tapering roofline and higher ground clearance. Other than that, we can expect several features on the Baleno Cross. What about its launch? Maruti could unveil the Baleno Cross at the Auto Expo of 2023, and the launch may happen a few months after the unveiling.
Yes, you have read that right, Maruti will soon be launching its own Innova. How will Maruti do it? Toyota will be giving the new Innova HyCross to Maruti. Like other badge-engineered products, it will get a different design. Other than that, we could expect new interior colours. Specification-wise, we could see a 2.0-litre naturally aspirated engine and a 2.0-litre hybrid setup. Maruti might focus more on the pure petrol model, while Toyota prioritises the hybrid variant. What about its launch? Maruti will launch its iteration six months after the Toyota Innova HyCross.
Maruti cars 2023 – New Swift
The last car on the list is the new Maruti Swift. The Swift continues to go strong being one of the best-selling hatchbacks in India, but Maruti is planning on giving the Swift a major update. Suzuki is testing the new-generation Swift in Europe. From the spy shots, the new Swift seems to be getting a revamped design and new features. According to reports, Maruti could launch the new Swift by the end of 2023 in India.
All these products are just speculations from recent spy shots and rumours. However, a thing to note is that Maruti had a stellar 2022. It brought several new products like the Alto, Brezza & Baleno and updated its existing models like S-Presso and WagonR. So Maruti would want to continue the momentum in 2023, and these products will help Maruti exactly do that.
