Maruti Suzuki YBA to only come with 1.3-litre diesel engine, to follow S-Cross way
SUV is the future despite the fact that they are age-old formulas. Going off the road without any hesitation that something will touch your car and damage and send in massive repair bills.
Our roads, in India once upon time used to be in these conditions. However, roads have surely got better throughout the country and people are still addicted to SUV because of commanding position that it garners only because you sit higher in a car that is a hatchback underneath. A segment that gained popularity with the Ecosport in India.
The upcoming Maruti Suzuki YBA is based on the XA-Alpha concept and basically a Swift on steroids or let’s say it trained with a Austrian-American actor-politician. Jokes apart, Maruti Suzuki YBA is a compact SUV that will come under the sub 4-meter category and will gain the excise benefits as well. It is a soft roader with a front-wheel drive layout with the basic engines.
Our sources inform us that company is planning to put only diesel engine under the Maruti Suzuki YBA bonnet. The diesel engine is none other than the 1.3 Multijet engine which should run on 90 PS tune.
Clearly as we know and so do manufacturers that, SUV are bought because they have diesel engines as they promise higher fuel economy because the car has a higher kerb weight. In our country, diesel fuel is cheaper and being fuel efficient means its way to easy on the pocket. Expect the Maruti Suzuki YBA to debut at the Auto Expo 2016 under the price tag of Rs. 5.9 Lakhs to 9.2 Lakhs.
