Rumour: Maruti Suzuki to launch sub-Ertiga MUV in 2016

Maruti Suzuki is rumoured to be working on a new compact MUV for the Indian market. This vehicle is reported to have been codenamed YJC and is expected to be positioned under the Ertiga and above the WagonR. It is likely to be sold in India and South East Asian markets.

Last year, Suzuki had revealed a longer version of the WagonR with seven seats, which was less than 4 metres in length. It is being speculated that this could be the MUV that the company is lining up for production. Since it will be based on the WagonR, it is likely to share many parts with the hatchback, which will allow the company to keep its price low. Its length will make it a rival for the upcoming Datsun GO+.

The YJC is expected to be launched in the festive season of 2016. The company plans to sell about 80,000 units of the car in the first year.
