Maruti Suzuki is all gearing up to compete against the recently refreshed Hyundai Elite i20 with the introduction of its premium hatchback codenamed the YRA. The test mule of this upcoming Maruti Suzuki premium hatchback has been spotted doing the runs by AutoCar India. The YRA will be placed above the Swift in the Maruti Suzuki food chain and will be based on the Ciaz sedan.
In terms of the design, the Maruti Suzuki YRA looks quite similar to the Swift. The headlights and the front grille look identical to the Swift except for the addition of chrome line that borders the sides and bottom of the car. The bumper now gets a wider air-intake and a pair of vertically placed daytime running lights which are placed next to the fog lamps. The mirrors, instead of being placed on the A-pillar, are now mounted on the door. In terms of dimensions, the YRA is expected to be wider and longer than the Swift.
The firepower is expected to be carried from the same powermill that is found on the Swift. So, in terms of performance, the YRA will be quite similar to the Swift.
We hope that Maruti Suzuki doesn’t skimp out on the safety measures like the Swift fiasco and manages to get a better NCAP rating. Do you agree with us? Let us know your thoughts and opinions through comments below. Stay tuned to Motoroids for more updates from motoring industry.
