Going by online buzz, the India bound YRA is likely to get power from 1.2 litre petrol and 1.3 litre diesel engines and in Europe, the car is likely to get 1.4 litre petrol motor.
The car is expected to pack features like chrome door handles, five-spoke alloy wheels, rear wiper and de-fogger. Other features expected include Steering mounted controls, new music system with touchscreen, Engine start stop button, electrically adjustable OVRMs and reverse parking sensors.
In India, Maruti YRA will challenge Honda's upcoming Jazz and Hyundai Elite i20 when launched.
