Maruti is ruling the hearts of people in the Indian market not only today but for many years. Let us tell you that due to the rising prices of petrol and diesel, people are making CNG their alternative. Because the cost of CNG is less than petrol and diesel. Maruti is going to launch Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara CNG this month. The Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara will become the first and only Maruti car to be offered in petrol, hybrid and CNG configurations.
