Maruti Suzuki unveiled the Fronx back at the Auto Expo 2023. Now, the manufacturer has announced that the crossover has hit a 1 lakh milestone in less than a year. The Fronx shares its underpinnings with the Baleno which has led the premium-hatchback segment quite a few times.

The Fronx achieved 1 lakh sales in just 10 months of launching in the Indian market. The automatic variants of the Fronx contributed to 24 per cent of sales. Maruti Suzuki is also exporting the Fronx to Latin America, the Middle East, and South-East Asian markets. So far, the company has exported over 9000 units of the Fronx.

There are several reasons behind the success of the Fronx. The first one is the way it looks, the Fronx feels up-market when compared to its rivals. There is chunky body cladding and 16-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels on the sides to enhance the ruggedness. At the rear, there is a set of LED tail lamps that are connected via a lightbar.

The cabin also gets a dual-tone theme of black and brown and is quite loaded with features. There is a 360-degree camera, a heads-up display, a wireless charger, a 9-inch SmartPlay Pro+ infotainment system and a multi-function steering wheel among others.
