A latest report on the internet suggests that Maruti Suzuki will be reviving the iconic Zen name for an upcoming product based on the indigenous concept showcased at the 2018 Auto Expo in February. It will be a subcompact SUV slotted below the highly successful Vitara Brezza.
The speculation indicates a production version of the Concept Future S, which was developed in India and featured a brand new styling direction. Ever since the cloaks were lifted off the concept, a road-going affordable SUV has been tipped for arrival in the near future.
The concept boasted a bold front end with white accents around headlamps and grille while the aggressive front bumper had silver scuff plate. The overall design theme was carried to other parts of the study including white surrounds on the windshield as well as futuristic frameless doors.
The tail lamp design had U-shaped lighting with white accents and the rear bumper was prominent with big silver skid plate. The adorable interior gained funky orange accents, along with three-spoke steering wheel, sporty round-shaped infotainment system, orange door trims and dark centre console.
It is reportedly based on the HEARTECT architecture that underpins the latest Maruti Suzuki products including Vitara Brezza and Swift twins. While a 1.2-litre petrol and upcoming 1.5-litre diesel engines are sensible options, hybrid or electric powertrain could be introduced in the new model targetting young buyers. We can expect the production version of the Concept Future S to reach showrooms by the end of this decade.
