Maruti Suzuki XA Alpha SUV
Maruti Suzuki XA Alpha is said to be another hot SUV for 2014 end or most probably in 2015. Since the company is busy with the facelift and other new launch works there is no hope for XA Alpha launch in 2014. This is a powerful rival from Maruti to the Renault Duster and Ford Ecosport. The XA Alpha is based on tweaked Ertiga platform. Maruti also planning to launch SX4 Crossover CUV and Larger SUV based on iV4 Concept in coming years. The expecting price of the Maruti Suzuki XA Alpha is around Rs. 7 – 10 Lakh in India.
Look, Style and Dimensions
The car is appealing with its large chunky wheels and a wide stance. With a wider network across the county hope the company can do good from this. The exterior styling features may includes 5 aperture grille, chrome and blue accents decoration, hawk eyed front headlamps, muscular bull-bars etc. In terms of dimensions it measures 4000mm Overall Length, 1900 mm Over Width and 1600mm Height.
The XA Alpha may powered by a 1.3 Litre Multijet engine which is the same one using in Fiat. Another 1.2 Litre K-Series 4-cylinder petrol engine also going to power its variants. With a powerful diesel engine option you can hope for good mileage figure and performance on roads. With a 1.3 Litre Multijet engine engine it can offer 10kmpl mileage in highway and around 8 kmpl in city.
Safety and Comfort Features
The vehicle features new and comfortable interior and exterior. 5 persons can comfortably travel in this vehicle. A larger wheel base of 2500mm and 255/50 R19 tyres assures good stability on ride. We can expect some similarities with the Suzuki SJ (Gypsy in India) series for Maruti Suzuki XA Alpha SUV. The main rivals includes Ford Ecosport and New Honda MPV.
