Maruti Suzuki is in the process of bringing the new diesel variant of Maruti SX4 to India. The first spy images of the model have been leaked on the internet showing details on the exterior only. There is no information available about the changes in the interiors from the spy shots captured. Maruti will introduce the new SX4 by mid-2011 and the model will be powered by 1.3L T-multi-jet diesel engine. It will be powered with a DDiS engine after enjoying the huge success of Swift and Dzire in diesel engine options. The multi-jet engine may be sourced from Fiat as the company recently got license from Fiat to develop the engine.

On the exteriors, the car reveals new headlamps that are less curvy along with a new rear bumper and tail lights, which make its rear look on the lines of their Kizashi sedan. The Maruti Suzuki SX4 car is sold as a crossover in North American and some of the European markets although it was initially launched as a 5-door hatchback. SX4 in diesel version will be pitted against other players in the same segment namely, Honda City, Ford Fiesta, Fiat Linea and Hyundai Verna.

With the launch of diesel SX4, Maruti anticipates to increase the sales for SX4 which is not doing so well in the market given the fierce competition from Honda City that sells twice as much as the SX4.
