Maruti Suzuki is extensively testing its upcoming MPV (codenamed YL8) and was recently spotted by Rajat Uppal, a fan of the CnB Show. The Maruti Suzuki R3 was seen on the old Delhi Gurgaon national highway. The picture showcases the new MPV from Maruti to be not-so-long. The third row seems just about adequate for children and a far cry from the segment leader, the Toyota Innova. Based on the Ritz platform, the Maruti R3 will feature three rows of seats and will be offered as a 7-seater. However it need not match the Innova’s third row space as Maruti Suzuki will undercut the pricing of the Innova by a significant margin.
The Maruti Suzuki R3 will be powered by an all new 1.4-liter K-Series motor (K14) and the tried and tested 1.3-liter, Multijet engine with VGT. The interiors will be quite similar to what we will be seeing on the upcoming new Swift, while the exteriors will borrow heavily from the current crop of Maruti cars, including the Ritz and Swift. The R3 will be available in four variant – VXi, VDi, ZXi and ZDi when it goes on sale later this year.
