UPCOMING MARUTI SUZUKI FRONX IN INDIA.
The all-new Maruti Suzuki FRONX first debuted at the Auto Expo 2023, with an all-new Boosterjet engine which is now indigenously manufactured in the Gujrat facility. It will be launched in mid-April and the expected price is around 9 lakhs (ex-showroom). It would probably rival the Hyundai I20, Tata Altroz, Toyota Glanza, and the Maruti Baleno itself. Let us now look at the other features and see what it offers.
DESIGN LANGUAGE :
The all-new Fronx shares the same platform on which the Baleno is based, but gets an all-new design language. The front gets an all-LED setup and the LED DRLs as well. The hexagonal-shaped grill with the Suzuki logo in it looks quite good on the vehicle. It might get a front camera as well including a 360-degree camera.
From the side, it gets a new design for the alloy wheels. It will get a 16-inch alloy on the top alpha variant and will get a steel wheel in the lower variants. There is black body cladding at the lower side of the car, making it look more rugged. The C-pillar gets a sloping roofline treatment which gives it a coupe-style design language.
From the rear, it is different. As showcased at the Auto Expo 2023, It gets sharp cuts and creases. The loading lib seems to be quite high and the boot carrying capacity will get to know once we will drive the car. The tail lamps get the connected treatment and it is the same in design as the front LED DRLs.
When we step inside, the dashboard gets the same touchscreen infotainment that we have seen on other Maruti cars. The layout is kind of similar and the use of dark grey looks quite premium. The comfort and the ride quality will be judged once we drive it.
