Maruti to launch Suzuki Cervo in India with bigger engine?
Posted on: Feb 2, 2010 - 12:27am IST
Is Maruti Suzuki seriously planning to launch Cervo in India this year? There is a high possibility given a Cervo was spotted testing in India a few months ago. Maruti has not ruled out the possibility of the Cervo in India. It could introduce it with a locally sourced 1.0-liter K-Series engine. This car could be placed just above the Alto in the Indian stable.
The Suzuki Cervo originally comes with a 660cc engine that outputs 54bhp of power and 64Nm of torque. The vehicle could be a perfect modern-day Suzuki small car. With the same engine tuned in favor of fuel economy, it could be the best replacement for the Maruti 800 in Indian metros. The big question is whether or not Suzuki can price it so aggressively.
The Cervo looks like a smaller Chevrolet Beat with hints of Honda Jazz‘s design. The company has remained mum about the car’s prospects in India. Who knows, an official comment could be awaiting us in the next turn.
