    Its does not look like a proper crossover like Duster but looks like a big hatchback like Jazz. I think this segment would like looks of Duster than this kind of design. But people will buy for the company’s reputation for reliability and low cost maintenance (real or perceived as few Maruti owners are complaining that they are no longer cheap to service).

  2. Chiragh says:

    To me it seems a pretty meaningless launch for MSIL. The Ciaz was a very good move but this one is already insignificant. The erstwhile SX4 looked much more muscular than this and could make for a nice CUV. This one’s neither here nor there…

  3. adi says:

    This fails to impress in the looks department. But 120hp/320 nm should be way may fun that any in the segment… sure will be another good seller….

  4. Jishnu Sasidharan says:

    It doesn’t look promising for Maruti. It doesn’t look great, doesn’t have enough space or doesn’t look premium and is not value for money compared to Creta if it is priced on par with Creta or even Terrano or Duster. Ground clearance is low and no all wheel drive. The only things working in its favour are Maruti’s brand image for good service and low maintenance and the 1.6 DDiS engine’s performance & hopefully better on road dynamics compared to Creta.
