Maruti Suzuki has revealed the stunning Concept Future-S at the Auto Expo 2018 in Greater Noida. Suzuki said that the concept personifies their philosophy of “Compact is beautiful” and previews their new design language in terms of proportions, body sculpting and bold patterns and accent colors.
The upright stance, commanding higher seating and ground clearance, along with the horizontal hood give ConceptFutureS an aggressive stance and posture. The urban SUV image is strengthened by the bold and upright front with narrow headlamps, contrasting white accents on the A-pillar and the side sill, strong shoulders and a raised rear volume. This impression is further enhanced by the bright orange body on ConceptFutureS which exudes the bold SUV characters of the concept.
Interiors The defining words adopted while designing interiors were `bold and exciting’. Strong structural elements in the interior provide the impression of strength while the layered wrap around design add a youthful charm. The centre mounted infotainment system, which Maruti refers to as the Human Machine Interface (HMI) has a spherical design. The colour scheme is smartly carried into the interiors with ivory as the main interior colour to give a spacious and futuristic look. An orange accent used aesthetically on Instrument Panel, Door trim and the seats goes well with exterior sheen and lustre.
Unveiling the ConceptFutureS, Mr Kenichi Ayukawa, Managing Director & CEO, Maruti Suzuki, said, “Compact is the natural choice of India’s car customers. Compact needs a fresh design language, one that is bold, confident and dynamic. Our designers have created this brand new design, aggressive on the outside, and bold and inviting interiors. Nothing like this has ever been attempted before on a vehicle this size. ConceptFutureS will define the next generation of design for compact vehicles in India”
