Maruti Suzuki’s display plans for the 2014 Auto Expo include the Celerio and the iV-4 concept, says Overdrive.

The iV-4 concept was first shown at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show. The grille of the iV-4 comes straight from the XA-Alpha concept that Maruti debuted at the 2012 Auto Expo. The iv4 measures 4,215 mm in length, 1,885 mm in width and 1,665 mm in height with a wheelbase of 2,500 mm.

The iV-4 could compete with the Nissan Juke in Europe. A senior Suzuki official had confirmed earlier production of the iV-4 would begin in its Magyar, Hungary plant in 2015 and subsequently be launched in Europe. At that time, he had stated that the iv4 would not be sold outside Europe.
