Some of the newer Maruti Suzuki cars already get Android Auto with CarPlay and MirrorLink. These include the Dzire, Ignis and the S-Cross facelift. The variants of cars which have the previous generation software supporting only Apple CarPlay and MirrorLink include, the pre-facelift Maruti Suzuki S-Cross (Alpha & Zeta), Ciaz (Alpha), Baleno (Alpha), Vitara Brezza (Z+) and the Ertiga (Z+).
Next year seems to be quite action-packed for Maruti Suzuki as the carmaker will be bringing in its third-generation Maruti Suzuki Swift, probably at the Auto Expo 2018. Maruti Suzuki is also working on a new generation of the Ertiga MPV and the Ciaz facelift and we’re expecting the company to showcase at least one of these at the Expo in February, alongside the new Suzuki Jimny, which was recently spied outside India. The Jimny is a rumoured replacement of the Maruti Gypsy in India.
