The sportiest crossover in India? (video)
Earlier this year, Maruti Suzuki India Limited launched its one-of-its-kind offering: the Frontix crossover SUV in India. This model is based on the brand’s premium hatchback, the Baleno, but it does not resemble it at all. Because of this and its new turbocharged engine, it has become one of the most popular premium products from Maruti Suzuki in India. Recently, a video was shared online showcasing the sporting capabilities of this new crossover SUV. The new Veronica is pushed to its limits on winding mountain roads.
The video of the sporty side of the Maruti Suzuki Bronx Turbo was shared on YouTube by Bunny Punia on their channel. The video begins with an introduction to the Fronx Turbo where the presenter gives an overview of this crossover. It is reported that it is currently the most sports car Maruti on sale in India, and in this video, he will drive this crossover on twisty mountain roads to explore its fun driving characteristics.

It is noteworthy that the Fronex’s stance is also very low, and it rides on 16-inch diamond wheels, which look beautiful. Next, he adds, the crossover gets LED lights everywhere. The front features a split headlamp design with the upper lights acting as LEDs and turn indicators.
