the petrol engine specs seems similar to the i20. so i suppose it will undercut the same in pricing the way the SWIFT did to the GETZ..!

so many choices opening up in the hatch segment now

how exactly would this car differentiate itself from the swift. Same engines and similar size too.

Are you sure that the engine will remain 1242cc ?
I think that they will reduce the capacity to less than 1200cc for that tax concession.

Also the car is quite heavy, infact I think its heavier than the Swift.
1045kg being hauled by just 81.7 bhp means it will be slower than i10 1.2.

I think Maruti will be targeting i20 with this. Suzuki should bring in M13 or M15. Yes I know they are not the latest iterations of motors from Suzuki, but this is going to be a bit too heavy a car for that engine. The power to weight ratio comes out to be almost similar to what the 65 bhp esteem had. But Esteem had G13 and this car also has an engine that has power concentrated above the bottom end.
Its a bit exiciting as of now.

EDIT :

First is that this car will be better built than Swift ( if A-star standards are maintained ).
The car is heavier slightly than Swift. Moreover it has a newer generation, but less powerful petrol motor to power it.
I think that new launches like I20 and this car make me believe that probably Swift has best combination of chassis and engine.

This Suzuki hatch is heavier than even Altura which was 1020 kg!
I hope the built is good.

@aaggoswami
I think this will be priced below Swift. If that is the case, it can't be a a competitor to i20. Anyway in terms of space this is not a challenger to i20.

I believe it should give a good competition to the i10 if not the i20.
The pricing should be between the swift and the A-Star i believe.

Nice Scoop Sid.

Damn this has a ZDi !!

How would that solve MUL problems given that the Diesels already have long long waiting times ?

i can still say a 50:50 chance of a zdi varient to be available, so cannot comment on it, same goes for lxi/ ldi varient, as told to me.
SO NO FINAL COMMENTS, JUST PRELIMINARY.

From what i can gather, its more spacious and more importantly has a bigger boot. On the downside it does not handle as well as the Swift. So maybe people looking for more practicality will opt for it rather than Swift. And if Maruti can place Zen Estilo and WagonR side by side, i believe Swift-Ritz portfolio is very much possible.

Length looks good but disappointed at wheelbase dimensions. It would lead to cramped interiors & less legroom for rear passengers.

I have test driven the Splash here in the UK and its a very good car. Just dont expect Swift handling and you'll love it.
