New Delhi, June 29: During the 2012 Auto Expo, Maruti Suzuki's XA-Alpha caught the fancy of many viewers. Reports suggest the new crossover version of the SX4 will go on sale by 2015.
The company expects the sub-10 lakh rupee SUV market to explode and sees lots of hatchback buyers upgrading to compact SUVs (instead of a sedan).
Maruti is likely to position XA-Alpha above the hugely successful Ertiga MPV. The entry-level XA-Alpha is expected to cost Rs 7 lakh for the base model while while the top-spec model could probably come at Rs 10 lakh mark.
