Maruti Suzuki is gearing up to launch the YRA hatchback in the Indian market as early as possible. Spyshots emerging on the internet reveal the car with all the badges in place, in production ready avatar.

The YRA is set to make an international debut at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, but chances are that the car is revealed to the Indian customers before.

Key elements on the YRA:

  • Noticeably different from all Maruti products currently on sale, fresh design
  • Honeycomb mesh front grille extending towards the headlamps
  • Headlamps look slightly similar to those on the Swift, but have their share of differences
  • LED tail lamp
  • Round fog lamps in a plastic housing
  • Regular, horizontal air dams
  • Turn indicator mounted on power folding ORVM
  • Side body moulding
  • Chrome door handles
  • Gloss black B & C pillar
  • Noticeable rear quarter glass
  • 16″ rim size
  • Rear wash and wipe
  • Spoiler on the rear windscreen
  • Small tail lamp unit, doesn’t look like an LED unit
  • Reflectors on the rear bumper
  • Much bigger boot space than the Swift

What’s inside:

  • Flat dashboard top
  • Big infotainment screen in the centre
  • Centre console in silver shade
  • Automatic climate control
  • Blue and white backlit instrument cluster
  • MID in the instrument cluster
  • Steering wheel with audio and telephone controls, probably cruise control as well
  • Automatic climate control
  • Dual din stereo head unit
  • Vertical AC vents in the centre
  • Engine start / stop button
  • 2-pot instrument cluster

Powering the hatchback will be the familiar 1.2L K-series petrol and the 1.3L DDiS diesel motor. Expect best-in-class fuel efficiency numbers from the YRA.

Pricing is expected to undercut the likes of Hyundai Elite i20 and Volkswagen Polo.
