Maruti Suzuki's upcoming compact SUV YBA aka XA Alpha has been caught on camera once again, this time in its completely undisguised avatar, giving auto lovers in India an early glimpse at the model.
YBA compact SUV, Maruti's answer to Ford's EcoSport, is believed to be in its final stages of testing in the country. Snapped by the motor buffs at GaadiWaadi, the latest spy shots show the YBA SUV in its production guise. Seen in the picture is a black prototype of YBA.
Likely to be offered in petrol and diesel engine options, the engine line-up of Maruti YBA SUV is speculated to include 1.2-litre K-Series or 1.3-litre diesel engines. The model is expected to house features like keyless entry, push start/stop button and touchscreen infotainment system and is likely to fall in the price range of ₹5.5 lakh to ₹8.2lakh.
If rumours are to be believed, the model will be launched in India by March 2016. Earlier reports had said that Maruti has registered the name of YBA compact SUV as Vitara Brezza, however nothing has been made official yet. As for styling, the upcoming YBA SUV aka XA Alpha is likely to borrow design cues from Suzuki iV-4 concept SUV, which was seen at the 2013 Frankfurt motor show.
