The carmaker aims to strengthen its SUV market with a series of new models including the Maruti Baleno Cross (codename – YTB) and the 5-door Jimny. Both the SUVs will make their public debut in January 2023 at the Delhi Auto Expo.

Reports suggest that the Baleno Cross compact SUV will hit the showrooms a month after its official launch – in February 2023. It will essentially be the production version of the Maruti Future-e concept that first broke cover at the 2020 Auto Expo.

Unlike the Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara, which is based on the Suzuki Global C platform, the Maruti Baleno Cross will be designed on the Heartect architecture. The compact SUV will mark the reintroduction of the brand’s Boosterjet turbo petrol engine.
