Maruti Suzuki has launched the Fronx Turbo Velocity Edition in India to make the sub-4m crossover look sportier than before. It is essentially an accessory kit to sweeten the deal on the existing model. It will be available in three variants – Delta+, Zeta and Alpha, with an additional price of Rs 43,000.
The Maruti Suzuki Fronx Turbo Velocity Edition accessory package adds a grey & black exterior styling kit, headlamp garnish, front grille garnish, and OVRM covers. It also adds door visors and body side moulding, along with wheel arch garnish and spoiler extender. Inside, it receives an illuminated door sill guard, an interior styling kit in a carbon finish, a red dash-designed mat, a NeXCross Bordeaux sleeve seat covers, and a 3D boot mat.
These accessories are expected to be fitted at the Nexa dealerships, so you can drive off with a sportier-looking Fronx Turbo without having to visit aftermarket shops.
