Maruti Suzuki is hitting hard in almost every segment in the auto industry, and now, they have announced to completely revamp their used car division. The brand has announced that their ‘True Value’ outlets will offer a completely new used car buying experience.

Maruti Suzuki will set up a new network of independent True Value outlets across the country. These new outlets will have a larger display area for the pre-owned Maruti Suzuki vehicles. All outlets will have digital integration via a portal so customers can browse through the available cars at True Value outlets online.
