Aravind Jayachandran, It goes without saying that I'm a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.

Likely to launch in early 2016.

The Maruti YBA (codename) has been spotted relatively undisguised by Gaadwadi, giving us the best look yet at the upcoming sub-4m SUV from Maruti-Suzuki.

Ground clearance appears to be similar to most monocoque SUVs in the sub-compact segment.

The pre-production prototype features a distinct front end that is characterized by small headlamps with LED DRLs, which flow into the vertical slat grille housing the Suzuki badge. The bumper sports a sizable radiator grille, and round fog lamps on either side.

It also gets large ORVMs with turn indicators integrated, and a contrasting black A-pilar (similar to the Maruti Swift). The overall design draws little influence from the Maruti XA Alpha concept, and its dimensions will be under 4 meters. Ground clearance appears to be similar to most monocoque SUVs in the sub-compact segment.

The YBA will, reportedly, ride on the same platform as the current Maruti Swift, and is likely to get a diesel-only engine lineup, which could pack the tried-and-tested 1.3-liter DDiS (Fiat Multijet) engine or Maruti’s own diesel engine based on the new DDiS 125 2-cylinder unit. It is likely to feature the SHVS mild hybrid technology, while an AWD system may not be offered.

The Maruti YBA will enter a growing segment, and is instrumental in the company’s growth (Maruti aims to sell 2 million units/annum in the next few years).
