Maruti YTB SUV Cross: Spied Again!


New Delhi: Maruti Suzuki is all set to launch the new Grand Vitara SUV in the Indian market during the festive season ahead of Diwali. MSIL is also preparing several new SUVs including the 5-door Jimny, an SUV based on the Baleno and a new 3-row SUV.

The new Baleno-based SUV, internally named Maruti YTB, will make its global debut at the Auto Expo 2023. It is expected to be introduced in February 2023.

The new Maruti YTB SUV has been tested several times. This time, the spy shots reveal new details like LED DRLs, front fascia design and silhouette.

The Maruti Baleno YTB SUV will be sold through the NEXA dealership network and will be positioned alongside the Brezza. It competes with Nissan Magnite, Renault Kiger, Hyundai Venue and others.

Designed and developed on the Suzuki Heartect platform, the new Maruti YTB SUV shares its style with the Futuro e concept presented at the Auto Expo 2020.

The latest spy shots reveal that the YTB SUV will feature a chrome trapezoidal front fascia that looks similar to the Grand Vitara. Additionally, the SUV features split headlights with 3 LED DRLs on top and projector headlights on the lower bumper. It has a coupe-style sloping roofline.

The YTB SUV features a cut windshield, roof rails, angled wheel arches, black plastic trim around the body and an integrated spoiler on the trunk lid. It will likely get new 16-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels.

The interior of the SUV is shared with the Baleno. It has a 9-inch touchscreen infotainment system with wireless connectivity, a host of connected car features, a semi-digital instrument cluster, a wireless charger, a head-up display and ventilated front seats. It will probably also get an electric sunroof.

The new Maruti YTB SUV is likely to be powered by a new 1.0-litre Boosterjet petrol engine which is likely to produce around 100bhp and 150Nm of torque.

The engine is likely to get a 48V mild hybrid SHVS system with an integrated starter generator. Both manual and automatic transmissions are available. The base variants are also likely to get the 1.2-litre NA petrol engine with manual and AMT transmissions.
