You must be noticing that every second four-wheeler on the Indian tarmac is a Maruti Suzuki. That said, the indigenous carmaker holds a 41% market share in the four-wheeler segment.
Yes, you read that right! That’s because they are affordable and high in fuel efficiency. Several Maruti Suzuki cars in the country come in different shapes and sizes, catering to different types of buyers.
However, choosing a car nowadays is a tad too tiring and time-consuming, as there are several options on the market. So, if you are also a potential buyer of the indigenous carmaker, check out a curated list of the top five Maruti Suzuki cars.
Let’s read on.
1) Maruti Suzuki Alto 800: This hatchback is still available on the Indian market and is an entry-level model in the carmaker’s lineup. It has an old look and has less power than the new Alto K10. Moreover, if someone wants a factory-fitted CNG kit on this small vehicle, the buyer will have to buy the Alto 800.
The suffix “800” indicates the capacity of the engine. Under the hood, it has a 0.8-litre petrol engine, which produces 46bhp and 69Nm of torque. The CNG variant, on the other hand, has a lower state of tune with an output of 39bhp and 60Nm of torque. Further, the Maruti Suzuki Alto 800’s mileage ranges between 22kmpl and 31.4km/kg.
As far as the Maruti Suzuki Alto 800’s price is concerned, it starts from Rs 3.39 lakh onwards, ex-showroom New Delhi, as of November 2022.
2) Maruti Suzuki Alto K10: This is the all-new iteration of the Alto. It carries a complete makeover with a revised K10B engine, making it the K10C mill. That said, it comes with a different state of tune, making it reasonably more powerful than the Alto 800’s engine. The naturally aspirated 1.0-litre K10C petrol engine produces 66bhp and 89Nm of torque. It is available in both manual and automatic transmissions.
But this vehicle misses out on the factory-fitted CNG kit. The manual variant returns a mileage of 24.39kmpl, while the automatic variant has 24.9kmpl. All are ARAI-claimed figures. The Maruti Suzuki Alto K10’s on-road price is marginally higher than the Alto 800 because the Alto K10 has a starting ex-showroom price of Rs 3.99 lakh.
3) Maruti Suzuki S-Presso: In terms of best mileage cars in India, the Maruti Suzuki Celerio takes the first position, followed by the Maruti Suzuki S-Presso. Even though the S-Presso also has the same K10C petrol engine as the Celerio, WagonR, and Alto K10. The S-Presso positions itself above the latter. Moreover, the CNG variant is also available on this vehicle. This vehicle returns a mileage of 24.4kmpl to 32.73km/kg (ARAI-claimed).
But if you are a buyer who wants safety, you shouldn’t compromise your or your loved one’s life over mileage. Unfortunately, this car has a zero safety rating. However, the Maruti Suzuki S-Presso’s price starts at Rs 4.25 lakh for the base model, the STD Petrol MT, and goes up to Rs 6.10 lakh for the top model, the VXi S-CNG.
4) Maruti Suzuki Eeco: This minivan is among the bestselling Maruti cars in the country because it serves every purpose. From people carriers to goods carriers, the Maruti Suzuki Eeco does everything.
Moreover, if you want an RWD vehicle at an affordable price, then this minivan is the car you can consider.
Apart from that, this vehicle comes in five- and seven-seat configurations.
As for the powertrain, the Eeco gets a 1.2-litre four-cylinder naturally aspirated petrol engine that produces 72.4bhp and 98Nm of torque. The CNG variant, on the other hand, has a lower state of tune of 61.6bhp and 85Nm of torque. Both engines get a standard five-speed manual transmission. As for the fuel economy, the Maruti Eeco’s mileage ranges between 16.1kmpl and 20.8 kph/kg.
In terms of pricing, the Maruti Suzuki Eeco’s on-road price (approximately) begins at Rs 5.21 lakh. It slots above the S-Presso.
However, it is worth noting that the ex-showroom price and on-road figures can vary across dealerships from state to state.
5) Maruti Suzuki Celerio: As mentioned earlier, the Maruti Suzuki Celerio is the most fuel-efficient car in the country. It has an ARAI-certified mileage range of 25.12 kmpl to 35.6 km/kg.
Like other Maruti Suzuki cars, this vehicle is also available in petrol and CNG. Under the hood, it has the same K10C naturally aspirated petrol mill that generates 66bhp and 89Nm of torque. And, once switched to CNG, the engine has a lower output of 56bhp and 82Nm of torque. Furthermore, the petrol variants have both five-speed manual and AGS (AMT) gearboxes.
Moreover, the Maruti Suzuki Celerio also disappoints, like the S-Presso, in safety. To improve fuel efficiency, it appears that the indigenous carmaker sacrifices build quality.
Besides that, the Maruti Suzuki Celerio’s price starts at Rs 5.25 lakh for the base model, the LXI, and goes up to Rs 7.0 lakh for the top-of-the-line, the XZI Plus AMT.
All are ex-showroom prices, New Delhi, as of November 2022. That said, the carmaker is offering attractive discounts on selected models.
These are the vehicles that are among the five bestselling cars in the indigenous carmaker’s portfolio.
