Maruti Suzuki India, the country's largest car manufacturer is aiming to launch an-all new mid-size sedan, which will replace the current generation SX4. The SX4 sedan has never been a top-selling sedan for the company, and it requires a makeover to create some enthusiasm among the car buyers. The new sedan (codenamed YL1) has been spotted testing quite a number of time in India, and our close sources suggest that the vehicle will be unveiled at the 2014 Indian Auto Expo. Moreover, the company will launch the new sedan soon after the Expo or by the end of the first quarter of 2014.
Based on the Maruti Ertiga platform, it is expected that the vehicle will share its interior design, engines and features with the Swift and Ertiga. The company had previewed the Suzuki Authentics Concept at the 2013 Shanghai Motor Show, and the SX4 replacement is likely to take its design inspirations from the same concept.
The YL1 sedan will be made available in both petrol and diesel engine options. While the petrol model will get the same Ertiga's 1.4-litre K2 petrol engine, the diesel version is expected to be powered by the current 1.3-litre DDiS mill.
