Maruti Suzuki has teased a compact car with SUV like traits which will slot in below the Vitara Brezza. The #ConceptFutureS, as it is officially called, will debut at upcoming Auto Expo 2018 in February. The high rider crossover concept appears to be shorter than the sub-4m SUV, the Vitara Brezza.
So, we can expect the Future-S to sit alongside the Ignis crossover. However, a more conventional SUV like stance might give the Future-S a far higher appeal. The concept looks curvaceous yet it has an SUV-like upright A-pillar, flat bonnet, and a slightly swooping roofline. The rear profile appears bulky with heavy haunches. It will also feature wraparound head and tail lamps. Expect the concept to be based on Suzuki’s lightweight Heart platform that underpins the Baleno, Ignis, and the Dzire.
CV Raman, senior executive director (engineering) at Maruti Suzuki India Limited, said, “The increasing preference for UVs and their bold architecture inspired our design team to study a new character for compact cars. ConceptFutureS could mark a distinctive shift in how compact cars are shaped and designed in India in the future.”
