Why is Maruti Suzuki a household name in India? Let’s find out.
The Name, the legacy
Maruti Suzuki 800, Omni, Alto, Swift, WagonR, Brezza and so on, Maruti Suzuki has dominated almost all the segments. When it comes to a brand that has been consistently on the top, Maruti Suzuki claims it with ease. And everyone remembers India comes home in a Maruti Suzuki. That’s the legacy we are talking about. Maruti Suzuki is surely unbeaten when it comes to the Indian market.
Wide network and availability of spare parts
Maruti Suzuki has the widest network in India. Spread across 33 states and over 280 cities, India’s largest carmaker has over 1000 dealers that are always there to help you out. So, wherever you are, you are never far away from a Maruti dealer. This puts a sense of relief in the car buyers.
Simple to drive, an optimum amount of features, the right amount of punch in the engine, variety of transmission options, what would a normal person ask for?
