Maruti has updated us with a new image of the SUV concept set to debut at Pragati Maidan next week. Designers have cut out holes on the radiator grille leading to speculations of the concept previewing the next generation Jimny.
Maruti is a master of the small car game and it was only a matter of time before Maruti joined the bandwagon. The next step will be seeing it off to a production line and we're sure by late 2013, this must take place. We expect the car to sit on an existing platform and make complete use of Swift parts.
Maruti had provided a glance of other angles of the SUV concept through tightly cropped pictures on its webpage. This is the first time a high resolution image is being circulated.
The 1.3-liter Fiat Multi-jet diesel engine is at their disposal and in the next couple of years the K Series engine range will spawn a wider number of spin-offs. Maruti can position the SUV between the new Dzire and the SX4.
