Maruti Suzuki is all set to launch its much-anticipated Fronx coupe SUV in India in early April 2023. This vehicle is based on the Baleno but features unique front and rear fascia, offering more ground clearance and rugged bits to give it an SUV look. The Fronx is expected to compete against models such as the Tata Punch and Nissan Magnite and will come with a range of engine and transmission options to choose from. Let’s take a closer look at its dimensions, engine specs, expected price, launch date, and booking details.
The Maruti Fronx measures 3995 mm in length, 1765 mm in width, and 1550 mm in height, with a wheelbase of 2520 mm. It has a ground clearance of 190 mm, which is higher than the Baleno.
Engine and Transmission:
The Fronx is likely to come with two engine options – a 1.0-litre turbo-petrol engine and a 1.2-litre petrol engine. The 1.0-litre turbo-petrol engine comes with Progressive Smart Hybrid technology and delivers an impressive driving experience. Drivers can choose between a five-speed manual transmission or a six-speed automatic transmission, both equipped with paddle shifters. The 1.2-litre petrol engine, on the other hand, comes with Idle Start Stop technology to maximize fuel efficiency and can be paired with a 5-speed manual transmission or an AGS gearbox.
