Maruti Suzuki Announces 5-Year Warranty On Diesel Swift, Dzire, Vitara Brezza, S-Cross

  • Aug 21, 2019

Indo-Japanese automobile manufacturer Maruti Suzuki has announced a free 5-year/1 lakh km warranty on diesel models of the Vitara Brezza compact sports utility vehicle (SUV), S-Cross, Dzire, and the Swift hatchback. The scheme will be available in more than 1,800 towns and cities across India. The company claims to be celebrating the cumulative 2.9 million unit sales of the diesel variants of the four cars. The petrol models of the Dzire and Swift will continue to be available with the standard 2-year/40,000km warranty which can be extended to 5-year/1 lakh km at no extra cost.

Maruti Suzuki executive director (marketing and sales), Shashank Srivastava, said that the new warranty scheme is a small gesture of the company’s gratitude to its patrons. Maruti, he said, wants to ensure a worry-free ownership experience.

All the four diesel models are hauled by a 1.3-litre Fiat-sourced motor. The Dzire and Swift outputs 75bhp and 190Nm peak torque. The S-Cross and Vitara Brezza, on the other hand, produces 90bhp and 200Nm peak torque.

Srivastava said that the Vitara Brezza, S-Cross, Dzire, and the Swift hatchback are the company’s flagship products that played a key role in transforming the Indian automobile industry. The four marquee brands, he said, are hailed for their performance.

The 1.3-litre motor, for long, has been the mainstay of Maruti Suzuki’s diesel cars. The engine will be discontinued once the BS-VI emission norms are implemented from 1 April. The company has already clarified that it won’t make any diesel cars in the BS-VI era. The company also has the in-house developed, 1.5-litre diesel motor which debuted with the Ciaz sedan earlier this year. The engine was later fitted to the Ertiga multipurpose vehicle (MPV).

Industry experts believe that the free 5-year/1 lakh km warranty is being offered to clear the existing stock of BS-IV cars, particularly when the entire Indian automobile industry is witnessing a major slump in sales.
