Maruti Suzuki Splash !! New Arrival !!
« on: July 16, 2008, 05:29:10 pm »
Hi [you],



Maruti Suzuki Splash

Estimated price: 4-6.5 Lakh

Maruti 800 started the bang and the very beloved Zen carried it forward. Wagon-R chipped in well too later on. And now that Zen has already received a make-over in the form of Estilo, it is the turn of her stable-mate, Wagon-R. Suzuki had showcased a concept based on this car in last year’s Paris Motor Show. Since then a lot of surgery has seen the Splash take its final form, the pictured of which we see here.

The styling is bold and is characterised by the massive headlamps at the fron. The rear is a result of some out-of-the-box thinking and has an inward tilt to it, something that the French have always had in their car designs. It does not look very nice, but every person has a right of thinking!

On the inside, you will notice the parts-sharing that Maruti has mastered now. The dash and the centre console shouts SX4 and Swift at its loudest. The rev counter placed on the dashboard is interesting though.

Maruti has ample number of engines to offer this car with. A one-liter, 65bhp motor can be offered while a 1.2L engine developing close to 86PS is also on the cards. The multi-jet diesel engine of the Swift can also be considered.

This car was showcased at the Frankfurt Motor Show and Maruti would be bringing it in India by mid next year. Fireworks in the automotive sector can be guaranteed.
