Well. In that price range, Mahindra Xylo will seem VFM to a Taxi operator. RIII's diesel engine won't be much suited as a load puller as that of Xylo or Innova's. Also Taxi operators like rear wheel drive vehicles which are less complex and relatively easy to repair.

Maybe as city taxicabs but not as the ordinary tourist taxis which make the bulk of the taxi sales. The engine is suited for a personal use,not load carrying usage, and also the front engine rear wheel drive layout which the RIII lacks may turn down many cab drivers.

Production version of R-III will feature the same set of Headlamps, Grille, Foglamp recesses, Bumpers as shown in these renderings as these are actually based on the design cues taken from the R-III spied by AutocarIndia few weeks back.
Although, both of these are Photoshop edited pics.If you clearly watch them out you can easily know that these are PS edited Ritz pics.

IMHO, Its pricing would be nearly;
-1.4 K-series Petrol: 5.99-7.20 lacs.
-1.3 DDiS VGT Diesel: 6.99-8.25 lacs.

The dark red car is a PS job on the new Swift. The grille, alloys, ORVM, the door lines all are from the new Swift. They have worked on the lower part of the front bumper, head lights and the rear.

The Silver car is based on the Ritz though. The alloys, ORVM, front quater glass all are from the Ritz.

I guess the MPV will be based on the new Swift. Or else, we wouldn't have seen the dash from the new Swift in the spy pics, though in beige. The added width of the new platform will give the car some proportion.

I feel its quite irresponsible for a reputed auto magazine to publish Photoshop edited images unless it is obtained from the manufacturer sources itself.

I think the length will be somewhere around what they have mentioned in the article. It may not be really practical to keep it under 4m, and secondly some kind of price difference with their hatch models (Swift and Ritz) will do no harm (for Suzuki).

As long as they admit it as 'artist's impression', it is fine. ACI has been spot on with some of the earlier renderings (like ANHC for instance)

One thing seems to be forgotten by all.Versa used to come in a 3 row configuration.Hence expect rlll to come with a decent amount of interior space.I would certainly buy it if ZDi is priced <10lacs.

Xylo starts at 7.29 lakhs and is around 200 mm longer than the supposed RIII. I know that may not necessarily translate into spacier interiors vis a vis the RIII which as per autocar is 4275 mm long. Engine is slightly more powerful than the DDIS with vgt. Carwale says xylo has So in my opinion if the RIII gets into the xylo territory and does nt have space to match it may well end up losing on the VFM front unless its loaded to the hoot.

I don't think you should be comparing the RIII with the Xylo which has a body-on-frame construction. R-III will have a monocoque construction leading to better driving dynamics and more car like feel. So, it is aimed at individuals who prefer owning a car which provides an option to seat 7, but is also as stable as a normal sedan/hatch.

Image published in the print version of ACI looks more close to the car in the scoop picture.

Was thinking of replacing my dzire with an innova in 2 years time. But this R3 changes it all! I always felt that an innova or a scorpio would be not be too great for every day personal office commute. You see, 6 seats is not something which you need all the time and even if the r3 is not as comfortable as an innova, it is still a good trade off for the size and every day practicality.
Maruti, please launch the R3 ZDI 90BHP VGT at less than 9-10 lakhs OTR

The all black interiors would look good but the scoop pics in the first page looks like it is dual shade. I hate biege and I dont understand the fascination of some people for entry level cars. Most of them they look and feel cheap

This is the reason why I am saying that the arched roof in the rendering (red image) will not come in RIII. In the scoop picture, the roof is somewhat flat / going down towards the front end - like Wagon-R.

Beige creates an illusion of being more spacious comparitively as it is a lighter colour.This holds true especially for passengers.Having said that personally i like black better as I never give up the steering.
