Suzuki Connect enhances the Maruti Suzuki ownership experience
Why are connected technologies important in today’s cars?
For today’s connected generation, having information at their fingertips is not just natural, it’s expected. Staying connected at all times provides reassurance, be it in terms of safety, or just in the power that knowledge brings.
While the world around is connected, when it comes to your car the same was not true. Maruti Suzuki understood this gap and has engineered the perfect solution for the integration of the car and technology, called ‘Suzuki Connect’. This advanced telematics tool uses technology to empower vehicle owners by keeping them connected to their cars even when they’re away from it.
What is Suzuki Connect?
Suzuki Connect is an embedded Telematics Control Unit (TCU) solution developed in India to meet growing customer expectations of a connected lifestyle. Once fitted, Suzuki Connect provides near real time information about the vehicle’s location, driving diagnostics and performance. All this is achievable with a simple smartphone app, available on both Android and iOS.
