Hold onto your seats, folks, because Suzuki is on a roll, expanding their SUV lineup for the thriving markets. Just when you thought the Fronx urban SUV and the mighty Grand Vitara had stolen the show, here comes a new 7-seater off-roader, ready to join the party. The juicy details spilled out courtesy of the Indian press.
Codenamed Y17, this upcoming masterpiece is set to make its debut in early 2025, likely around January or February. Picture this: a global architecture called Suzuki C will serve as the platform, the same one that breathed life into the reborn Grand Vitara. It’s like they’re building an SUV empire, one platform at a time.
Now, let’s talk power. This seven-seater urban SUV will be equipped with a spanking new 1.5-liter mild-hybrid powerplant, where the internal combustion engine dances to the Atkinson cycle rhythm. It’s a move straight out of the Grand Vitara’s playbook, churning out a respectable 103 horsepower.
As for the nitty-gritty details of what to expect from Suzuki’s latest SUV for the competitive SUV segment, well, the crystal ball is a bit foggy at the moment. No leaks, no sneak peeks – it’s all under wraps. But fear not, we do have a sneak peek at the expected price tag. Insiders are whispering that this beast could set you back anywhere from 1.5 to 2.5 million rupees, depending on the bells and whistles you opt for (that’s roughly 18 to 30 grand in greenbacks). Time to start saving, my friends!
