Baleno is quite a light car and based on an unsafe heartect platform. It will be a shame if the compact crossover is based on Baleno! Maruti should wake up at least now and focus on safety.

Rather they should give a good set of engine and transmission options for the S-Cross and the Brezza.

Maruti Suzuki YTB sub-4m SUV to rival the Tata Punch

Earlier this month, Tata Motors took the wraps off the Punch sub-4m SUV. While we await the price announcement, there are rumours of a Maruti Baleno-based model that could rival the Tata Punch.

There have been reports of Maruti Suzuki working on a new crossover (codenamed YTB) since December 2020. The car will be positioned between the S-Presso and Vitara Brezza and is expected to compete directly with the Tata Punch.

The YTB is likely to be based on the Heartect platform, and it could be offered with a 1.2-litre petrol engine. The revised engine is rumoured to be slightly more powerful than the one currently offered in the Baleno.

The report states that the Baleno-based YTB could be unveiled in 2022.

The biggest negative and biggest positive summed up in one sentence. And it won't/ will sell for the same too.

Another Maruti on the Heartattack platform. Will be light, nimble and the 1.2L engine, as we all know, is a proven gem. But the platform ? No, I will stay away until they get it tested and prove themselves. It is time to make the move, Maruti. You can't sit back and relax expecting it to sell. The new generation customers have already started talking about how your cars are "not safe". Either take notice right now or I see another Nokia in the making. You could be crushed from being the market leader to a "we are here too" company. Either get rid of that platform and make a new low cost platform that is safe, or start selling Heartattack cars with the same level of safety that you have in EU.

I think Maruti is getting alarmed by the impending success of Tata Punch. The Punch is likely to "punch" multiple micros segments in the 5-9 L range across manufacturers. The article quoted has lots of ifs and buts and no concrete info.

Not just the article, even in this thread there is no intent announcement via Auto expo etc. No design sketches, forget going afar spy shots. This makes me think if these model is only a paper tiger. I think Maruti just wants to float some news to keep its existing and prospective customers hooked towards itself.

Maruti Suzuki's upcoming Crossover could be a Strong/Full Hybrid Vehicle.

- Will be a segment above Brezza
- Will be a Nexa Offering

Is this crossover still on cards?. Given the pricing of the new Brezza, I hope we get something that's between the Ignis and the new Brezza.

Yes! The YTB is still pretty much in development and will most likely launch early next year. Since Brezza is now pretty much the Ecosport of the segment (price wise), they definitely need their own Freestyle (Punch rival i.e.) to keep the lower price range buyers happy.

› To be based on Maruti’s Heartect platform.

› To be powered by a Boosterjet turbo-petrol engine.

› It will sit above the Baleno hatchback in Nexa lineup.

› The Baleno Cross is essentially the production version of the Futuro-e concept.

› It will be unveiled at the Delhi Auto Expo in January next year with the launch scheduled in February 2023.

Baleno Cross or Baleno XL is probably what it is. This in no way resembles the futuro-e concept.

This looks good and very proportionate but if that comes with 1L boosterjet then is it going to be enough?

While the front stance looks cool, isn't the Baleno being too obvious out of this?? I mean just look at the car! Everything from the A pillar to the boot lid scream Baleno!

Sure the new Baleno is sturdy so it isn't a bad thing to develop an SUV on that. But I seriously hope for more differentiation!

Umm.... how about no?! This looks nowhere close to what the Futuro-E was

Looks like this will be what the XL6 is to the Ertiga. What we thought Baleno Based crossover meant was that the new car would have its platform and dimensions close to the Baleno, while looking different inside and out. But in Maruti Terms, "Based Off" literally means taking the base car and adding cladding and changing plastic bits to make it look different. Even the alloys are the same as the Baleno.


I don't know why anyone would prefer this over the Brezza, except maybe for that Turbocharged engine will re-debut with this car.

The next SUV from Suzuki ( in India) is the next big launch next year, apart from Jimny.

- The 1.0 booster jet engine is to make a comeback in this Coupe styled SUV.
- The roof line does not taper steeply towards the rear like on the Futuro-e but it rather has a resemblance to the Baleno hatchback.
-The front fascia with chrome-lined trapezoidal grille, low-set headlamps and high-mounted narrow LED DRLs embraces the new family identity debuted by the Grand Vitara.
- Rumoured to have a strong Hybrid variant and likely to slot below the Grand Vitara in Maruti's product ine-up.

Would Maruti Suzuki's upcoming 'YTB' get the ZEN Moniker or will it be 'Baleno Cross'?

- Likely to have a Toyota sibling including a Strong Hybrid Version.
- The model will be positioned at the premium end of the compact SUV market and will take on more expensive versions of the Hyundai Venue and Kia Sonet.
- Will be a NEXA Product

Quote:
it looks much taller than the hatch it is based on. The car gets squared-off wheel arches with plastic body cladding. The alloy wheel design is also new, but we expect it to measure the same in size, i.e., 16-inches. The coupe SUV prototype features a sloping rear windscreen, which is connected to a rather flat tailgate.
The car also gets a chunky spoiler, and a shark fin antenna.
