Maruti Suzuki India has launched their first compact SUV (crossover) in India - the Maruti XA Alpha . Indian car market will see exponential growth in the SUV demand and all companies are gearing up to grab the big pie . Ford has already launched their compact SUV Ecosport , which is not only reasonably priced but a green SUV (low pollution and high mileage) . Maruti Suzuki's only other SUV in the market is Grand Vitara , which has not been successful because of its price tag
and is quite old to compete in the segment (no upgraded version has been launched since long) . The name of the new compact SUV - Maruti XA Alpha - might be not so brandish (The retail market name of the SUV might be different when it will be available in the showrooms) but Maruti Suzuki will have high hopes from this new vehicle , specially after the failure of their premium sedan Kizashi and their declining market share .
Maruti XA Alpha Price in India : Around Rs.10 Lakh
