As soon as the Fronx SUV was officially unveiled, the company began accepting bookings for a token amount of Rs 11,000. Maruti Suzuki's Nexa dealership will sell the Fronx alongside the Ignis, the Baleno, the Ciaz, the XL6, and the Grand Vitara. The firm has stated that the Fronx, along with the Baleno, will be the Nexa's volume drivers. The carmaker hopes to provide customers with the new Fronx, a sporty vehicle with cutting-edge features and engine options. In India, the new Maruti Suzuki Fronx will face off against models like the Hyundai Venue, the Kia Sonet, as well as the Tata Nexon. Now that the eagerly-awaited Fronx is finally available in the market, let's know more about what it brings to the table.
