New year is just few days ahead, car makers have already lined-up their launches for 2011. Maruti which is under attack by european and amercial car majors, plans three major launches in 2011. As we reported you earlier, first one of this is Kizashi which will followd by SX4 diesel and Swift. Kizashi would be the Maruti big leap (in terms of segment) in the passenger car market. Maruti traditionally¬† a small car maker has often tried for an image makeover with the likes of esteem, SX4 and Grand Vitara, Kizashi is Maruti’s yet another bid in that direction. Kizashi is expected to be priced upwards of Rs15 lakhs and likely to positioned against the likes of Skoda Laura and Honda Accord.

The second big launch is the SX4 diesel which is longgg awaited. Maruti will use the same 1.3L multijet diesel engine that is already being used in Swift and dzire. Maruti is expected to employ turbo charged diesel engine in SX4. Maruti SX4 diesel will take on Volkswagen Vento.

The real big news is the next generation Swift. The 2011 swift will make it to India by the festive season in India. 2011 Swift will strengthen the Maruti arms in its fight to defend its market share against Ford Figo,Volkswagen Polo and Hyundai i20. The existing swift may be stripped and priced lower. We expect the current swift to sell along with new swift. Is it right? let us know what do you think

Here multi jet engine is all ready turbo changed and 1.3 plant from swift would be underpowered . i would be better if something lifted from fiat liena or fiat Punto 90bhp diesel engine . because i guess the body is heavy for small 1.3 engine

    1.3 Multijet diesel with even 90 bhp wont suffice for SX4. It will difficult to match to 105 bhp of Verna & Ventro. Maruti need to relook at this as in mid segment there will surely be demand for diesel car as even Honda too are thinking of diesel car diverting from their petrol strong hold.

    If it is 1.3l fiat engine. Then it is going to be a puny engine, like what Toyota has done to Altis diesel. Then competing with the likes of vento, verna diesel 2011, Chevy Aveo diesel (future), ford fiesta will be really difficult.

    all of the readers and writers are bull-shitting here. firstly swift wont be continue as old and new, it will be all new swift from 2011 secondly, sx4 diesel 1.3 multijet will be producing 90bhp using the same engine used as in swift,dzire,ritz,punto,punto90bhp, indica multijet,indica 90 , indigo multijet,linea (and it is originally a FIAT engine which has been awarded engine of the year internationally ) which is definitely terrific. and that diesel engine is already turbo-ed (ever heard of naturally aspirated diesel engine at 21st century) whoa….they say silence is better thn crapping !!
