Default New Zen from MARUTI

Hi All
Was watching CNBC-TV18 last night. Suddenly saw a one line at the footer, "Maruti to launch a 1000cc car NEW ZEN in october". Anybody have any idea about this car?

Alll new maybe. I think they might be thinking about new Suzuki Ignis. Pricing would be a challenge. I think any car by Suzuki in this range would hurt Wagon R the most.
