Maruti is known for their efficient and low maintenance cars that are simple yet very up to date in terms of features. Some of the most popular cars from the lot are Maruti Swift, Maruti Ertiga, Maruti Ritz, Maruti Dzire etc. The new 800cc model that was to replace Maruti Alto might face a delay along with a few other models due to the incident that happened at the MSIL factory last week.
