Maruti Suzuki Fronx Velocity Edition Added to All Variants, Starts at 7.29 Lakh

Maruti Suzuki has added the Velocity Edition to all 14 variants of the Fronx for a limited time. The starting price of the Velocity Edition is 7.29 lakh (ex-showroom). What does it add to them? It brings a sportier and more confident look thanks to some accessories without changing the core design of the SUV. This comes after the SUV recently broke the record of being the fastest car to hit 1 Lakh sales. What are these changes? Let's find out.

Like the standard trims of the Fronx, customers can choose among two powertrains with the Velocity Edition.

Additionally, the 1.2-litre NA powerhouse gets the option of a 5-speed AMT, while the 1.0-litre turbocharged unit also comes with a 6-speed automatic transmission.

Accessories of Fronx Velocity Edition 

There is a variety of accessories that the Velocity Edition gets over the standard variants. The accessories depend on the engine type chosen.

With the 1.2-litre engine, you get accessories like a red insert on the body side moulding, an illuminated door sill guard, red-coloured designer floor mats, an upper rear spoiler extender, door visors, an ORVM cover, a tailgate garnish, and a red rear bumper garnish.
