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

The Maruti Suzuki YTB will be positioned between the S-Presso and Vitara Brezza.

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.
