The upcoming Maruti YRA hatchback for has been spotted inside out. That’s good then, and shows us an early peek at what could be Maruti’s next bestseller in India. The YRA is looking to make headway in the European market as well. Straightaway, the car looks bigger than the Swift/Ritz- of course, it’s pegged as a premium hatchback.
The car gets completely new styling all around, with the front getting a grille unlike any other Maruti we’ve ever seen. The head-lamps have integrated DRLs and bear a striking resemblance to the ones on the Swift though. The rest of the car looks very grown-up and European- as it has to impress the boys from across the sea as well. The waistline is high-set, while the rear windscreen is quite raked and swooping, and the whole posterior of the YRA somehow reminds one of the Chevrolet Cruze hatchback.
The interiors have been party spied too and this is where Maruti has become a little adventurous, with all the funky looking elements and the touch-screen infotainment system. The instrumentation looks cool, with blue lighting and a driver information display nestled between the dials. Expect this one to be moderately loaded with features and safer as well, because of its European intents.
To be positioned above the Swift and built to take on the new Hyundai Elite i20, the Maruti Suzuki YRA should finish under 4 metres and get the same 1.2-liter petrol and 1.3-liter diesel engines from the Swift. The European versions should get a 1.4 liter petrol motor. Stay tuned to Motoroids for more information on the new Maruti YRA.
