Maruti Suzuki to have XUV 500, Hexa rival by 2020

The D-segment has been a hard target for India’s biggest automaker to aim at. They have struggled with making a presence here for a long time. However, now with the Nexa premium brand under their belt, the company is expected to take a different approach with regard to bringing in an SUV rival to the XUV500 and the Tata Hexa.

Currently, they have the S-Cross crossover in this part of the market, but are tasting major success a rung below with the Vitara Brezza compact SUV. They have been able to shift over 9000 units consistently making it one of their biggest sellers in the higher segments. However, they have no SUV presence below the Brezza or as mentioned earlier, above the S-Cross. It is here that Tata and Mahindra have been able to corner a large share of the market with the Hexa and XUV500 respectively.

Maruti Suzuki did try to break into this part of the market and twice to be precise. First with the Grand Vitara and then with the Kizashi sedan, both of which failed to make any heads turn. But this time around, their approach is expected to be with their Nexa premium brand which has already done the job of expanding the image of Maruti Suzuki and moving it beyond its budget manufacturer origins.

On the other hand, there will also be an SUV-styled vehicle, that will come in below the Brezza and is expected to be a cross version of the next generation Alto hatchback. It will take on the likes of the Renault Kwid and Datsun Redigo in the A-segment of the Indian car market. This will be a volumes heavy model and probably sell alongside the Alto range.
