Maruti Suzuki has commenced exports of its newly launched compact SUV Fronx. The first batch of 556 units was shipped to destinations in Latin America, Middle East and Africa from Mundra, Mumbai and Pipavav Ports. The move is in line with the government's ‘Make in India’ initiative. Maruti Fronx compact SUV comes based on the company's popular premium hatchback, Baleno.

Fronx was first showcased at the Auto Expo 2023 in January and aims to help the company expand its SUV portfolio and capture a larger share of the market. It is offered under the company's Nexa retail chain and is therefore positioned as a premium alternative to Brezza. It sources power from a 1.0-litre Turbo Boosterjet which makes a comeback after it was first offered on the now shelved Baleno RS.
