Maruti decided to go premium with separate Nexa dealerships for models like the Baleno, S-Cross, Ignis and the Ciaz, which helped it position the brand as an upmarket carmaker, but there was a concern that required to be addressed. Following the digitalisation trend and upgrading its showrooms to suit the liking of new age customers, the rationale behind Arena was also to make sure that its existing and small car customers don't feel left out.

The two-year milestone is a marquee statement to showcase our commitment towards customer satisfaction. We are delighted to celebrate over 450 Arena showrooms and we look forward to offering experiences with revolutionary design and innovative technology that are at par with global benchmarks."
Arena showrooms are equipped with touchscreens to give every detail to the customers before they approach towards the car to get hands on experience. Specifications, features, colour options, EMI options, Accessories, etc information are available on the touchscreen panel and customers even get the option of online and offline purchase.
