Cost of Ownership

Buy it, run it or sell it, a Maruti Suzuki car gives you an unmatched value.

The price of high mileage petrol cars in India is just a third of what you will pay for over its lifetime. The balance two-thirds include, maintenance, cost of spares and service, and resale. Together, they make up what is called the cost of ownership. It's where nothing can beat a Maruti Suzuki car.

India, we know, is driven by a deep value consciousness. Every year on an average, our manufacturing units churn out around 1.2 million petrol cars and diesel cars. Economies of scale help us in keeping our manufacturing cost low. The continued VA-VE initiatives (Value Analysis & Value Engineering) pursued aggressively in partnership with vendors also help reduce the cost of making Maruti Suzuki cars without compromising on quality

Maruti Suzuki models are designed with superior specifications to last longer. This gives you a high resale value and demands less service over its lifetime.

At the heart of Maruti Suzuki cars are the advanced K-series petrol and DDiS engines, built on the Suzuki belief of delivering 'more for less'. You get more power and more driving, for lesser fuel consumption and lower CO2 emission. This is how we make the most fuel efficient petrol car in India and get a mileage-obsessed nation to ask, "Kitna deti hai?"

Service and spares are other critical components of the cost of ownership story. The widest network of Maruti Suzuki service centres, known for an unmatched 'first-time right' score, also ensures maintenance costs are the lowest. Add to this readily available spares, with a high degree of indigenization. It's what has won us the No.1 in Customer Satisfaction in the J D Power Asia Pacific Survey for 14 years in a row.

That's why you don't just buy a Maruti Suzuki. You invest in it.
