Maruti Suzuki India Limited, the king of small cars in our car market, plans to launch a new hatchback which will be positioned somewhere in between the slow selling A-Star and the Estilo.

The car will be launched only with the K10 three cylinder petrol engine. However, rumours are that the carmaker will also launch a diesel variant by mid 2014. Not much is known about the upcoming car but it is being expected that it would be the downsized, 1.0 litre, version of the Fiat 1.3 Multijet that will power the diesel variant. This is the same engine that is also likely to power the diesel variant of the very popular WagonR.

The new car will go on sale for around INR 3.25 lakhs and will come with optional driver’s side airbag and engine immobilizer among other features.
