Spied – Interiors of the Maruti YL1 Sedan (SX4 replacement) snapped
Anjan Ravi, I'm a true-blooded petrolhead. Hope you enjoy our news stories, launch coverages, motorshow coverages and test drive reports.
After seeing the exterior of the Maruti YL1 Sedan (the Maruti SX4 successor), Team BHP today gives us the interiors of the upcoming C-Segment sedan.
We’ll first talk about this exterior image which shows us a possible alloy wheel design. If you’re an avid car buff, you can easily relate this design to that of the Kizashi’s (16-spoke design) and Team BHP reports of a 16-inch rim size with 195 section tires on the top-end variants.
Moving on to the steering wheel, it seems to be lifted from the Maruti Ertiga/Swift with the same steering mounted audio controls. What seems to be surprising is that even though the rest of the car sports a dual-tone beige interior, the steering wheel is all black, unlike the Ertiga’s beige-black interplay. However, there are a secondary set of buttons which look like the Bluetooth controls for the mobile phone.
You can also notice the door handles and the power window switches, which surprise-surprise, is also lifted from lower models in the lineup. Coming to the center console, there seems to be some sort of a wood finish on the upper half of the dash. A music system and automatic climate AC (with a digital display, the current SX4 does not have a display) can also be seen.
Thanks to the rev-counter which ends at 6,000rpm, we can assert that this is a diesel model, presumably using the Fiat 1.3-liter MultiJet and producing 90PS. The petrol is expected to be the 1.4-liter K-Series which also does duty on the Ertiga.
We expect to see the Maruti YL1 at the 2014 Auto Expo in February.
