Thanks Longdrive !

The rear height looks similar, or maybe just a bit taller than the Ritz.

Wish they had put the Christmas tree tail lights of the Ritz as well, though

Though all the test mules have a tacky look, when the car really launches, I hope Maruti renders R3 in a futuristic design. Otherwise imo R3 will have a tough time competing with Xylo mini in the mini (M)UV segment playing to M&M's strengths.

I hope Maruti do justice to the concept car that they unveiled as R3 at 2010 auto expo.

This looks good. Conservative, but then that is what one expects of MPVs anyway. The design seems to borrow quite a lot from the Swift, which is a good thing. I hope Maruti equips and prices it properly - it can potentially create an all new market below the Innova. I dont think the Xylo would be a direct competitor since its a truck based platform rather than a car based one and many folks (including myself) prefer a car based MPV

Nice scoop. Looks real good. First clear view of the side profile and it doesnt dissapoint. Third row seating is a big question though.

Good pics, finally. But, this looks more like a Jazz competitor than an Innova competitor.

Competitor in what sense? After all Jazz hardly sells. We need to watch out whether Jazz improves post its face lift though. I did not quite like the picture, maybe the bland wheels make this a dull MPV. This is nowhere near the concept RIII seen in Auto Expo 2010.

Is there any chance for this vehicle to challenge Aria. Although I guess Maruti will be pricing the car way lower than Aria and try to take on Innova. But what they need is a good powerful diesel. If they are thinking of plonking the same 1.3MJD here, the Innova would remain by far the better vehicle to own.

It has a 'VVT' badge! So, either the 1.2L VVT K-series engine from new Swift, or 1.6L SX4 VVT engine will come in the petrol version.

I dont think Maruti has any other diesel engine in its range. They have acquired the license for 1.6L MJD and I guess we will start seeing it from 2013 when they will plonk it into SX4 facelift / upgrade then.

There are speculations that this car will get a new 1.4L K-Series engine. Not sure of the power figures though.

Direct ingress to third row seats without folding of seats seems to be on offer in this MPV, going by the side pic, which shows overlap of the rear door length into the third row legspace zone.

A very useful feature indeed, if offered, even if it's for kids
