The Maruti YRA gets a clutter free interior done up in black with chrome accents and will come feature loaded to take on the Hyundai Elite i20 and Honda Jazz.
Maruti Suzuki’s third premium product after the Ciaz and S-Cross, the automaker will roll out the YRA (codename) hatchback around this festive season. Likely to be christened as the ‘Fronx’, these new spy pictures show the premium offering completely undisguised, revealing the front fascia with a wide V-shaped honeycomb mesh grille, Y shaped chrome strip and the sweptback headlight cluster with projector lamps and LED daytime running lights. The bumper gets a large trapezoidal air intake with integrated fog lamps positioned at either corners.
The ORVMs are door mounted and get integrated turn indicators, while the window line and door handles get chromed up for a premium appeal. The spied mule was riding on 16-inch 12-spoke alloys. At the rear, the YRA gets a rather stout looking LED tail light cluster and a chunky chrome bar between the boot-lid and windscreen. There is also roof mounted spoiler and a short antenna, while the bumper sports reflectors and houses the registration plate enclosure. On the inside, the Maruti YRA gets clutter free dashboard done up in black with silver accents visible on the centre console and around the gearbox.
The Maruti YRA (iK-2) gets a touchscreen infotainment unit, multi-function steering wheel and a twin pod instrument cluster with an MID unit in the centre. Features include start-stop button, climate control, keyless entry, navigation, Bluetooth telephony, cruise control, fabric seats, rain sensing wipers and rear seat power socket. You also get a reverse camera with parking sensors, a dead pedal, dual front airbags, ABS with EBD and some more will be on offer. There were no rear AC vents or armrests seen on the model.
Powering the Maruti YRA will be a 1.3-litre DDiS diesel as well as a 1.0-litre BoosterJet and 1.2-litre K-Series petrol engines. All versions will come paired to a 5-speed manual gearbox. The premium hatchback will be sold through Maruti’s new Nexa dealerships that are designed to offer a customized and premium purchase experience, and the automaker is currently allocating these new showrooms in Tier II markets. With Hyundai setting the benchmark very high with its Elite i20, Maruti will have to work really hard to break the Korean’s reign in the segment.
