New upcoming Maruti Suzuki YRA gets spied revealing details

Maruti YRA 2015

The YRA will be Maurti`s contender in the premium hatchback segment

Indian car market leader, Maruti Suzuki is back in news with several new car models. While the Celerio and Ciaz had been in the limelight for this year, a slew of other vehicles from Maruti are ready to launch next year as well. However, the latest buzz around Maruti Suzuki is the all new hatchback that is still codenamed as the YRA. The Maruti Suzuki YRA will be an all new premium hatchback model that will be placed above the current B-segment leader Maruti Swift. The new YRA is expected to be more up-market from all the aspects and will pack in a long feature list to beat the market competition from the very popular Hyundai Elite i20.

According to sources, Japanese car maker Suzuki is very serious and is very aggressive about the development of the YRA which is a global premium hatchback. The car is expected to launch sometime in 2015. The YRA hatchback has been in news for quite some time having been spotted several times in Europe while the car was testing. More recently, the hatchback’s test prototypes have come to the Indian roads, and seem to be closer to its production ready version.

Now, the recent spy pictures of the upcoming Maruti Suzuki YRA have gone viral on the internet revealing many crucial details about this entirely new global car that is ready to be placed above the extremely popular Swift. The upcoming Maruti Suzuki YRA premium hatchback model that was spied was wearing light camouflage. The spotted model was also thought to be the top of the range variant. It was caught featuring LED tail lamps and 5 spoke alloy wheels. It also gets chrome finished door handles and chrome finished lip spoiler on the boot-lid. The car comes with a broad boot-lid which has a distant similarity with the previous generation Fiat Palio. The front fascia of the YRA was seen featuring a very individually styled U-shaped chrome grille, while its headlights are styled similar to that of the Swift.

The YRA is expected to come with an up-class cabin featuring dual-dial instrument cluster with blue backlight and a touchscreen display for the infotainment system. It is also expected to offer automatic climate control, parking sensors, dual front airbags and ABS with ESP as standard on higher trims. The Ciaz’s Smart Play infotainment system could be featured on the YRA.

The Maruti YRA is expected to be powered by 1.2 litre K-Series petrol motor tweaked to offer better power figures. An all new 1 litre turbocharged petrol mill could also be offered. The diesel YRA is again going to be equipped with the acclaimed Fiat 1.3 litre DDiS diesel mill offering a max power of 90 PS. The engines are going to be coupled to a 5 speed manual gearbox, while Maruti will most probably also offer an automatic transmission for the YRA’s petrol variants. On the whole, the YRA seems to be yet another upcoming blockbuster from Maruti Suzuki.
