The upcoming Maruti Splash has been spotted quite a few times. Its been under test for some time now and Maruti plans to launch it next year. It will be priced similar to the Swift and will be targeted at the younger audience. The Splash is based on the Swift platform with 30mm excised from the wheelbase. The interior is little Swift like and gets a neat pod mounted rev counter.
The Splash is expected to come with two engine options, petrol 1.2 K Series engine and the famous Fiat Multijet engine which does duty in the Swift. The car under test above is the ZXi version with the same tires (185/70/14 JK Vectra) and alloys which the Swift ZXi comes with. The car is taller then the Swift and has a higher seating position then the Swift, giving a good view of the road. The Splash has the gear lever located near the center console just like the i10. The Splash may not look appealing to all but surely is a car which will help Maruti to take sales back from Hyundai.
