Maruti Suzuki, the country’s largest automobile manufacturer has been the first choice of the country men for the choice of the company whose car will be adorning their driveway. But that has been the case only if they’ve wanted to buy a hatchback across any segment. The company has pretty much been a failure in the sedan and SUV segments. We brought to you the company’s plans for its SUVs some days ago and today we have for you the pictures and details about the company’s upcoming C-segment sedan which will be taking charge from the present SX4. The new sedan codenamed YL1 or 2014 Maruti SX4 is expected to go on sale sometime next year and will be gunning for the throats of Verna, City, Vento and the likes.

The sedan will borrow the good bits from the SX4 and bring a host of new things to the table. The car will bring the high ground clearance of the SX4 to the table to make it taller than the rest. The car will bring class leading rear seat comfort as well with it which will rival the likes of the Sunny and Scala. The interiors are expected to be based on the Swift and Ertiga and the same will hold true for the switches inside the car.
Under the hood of 2014 Maruti SX4 be a 1.4 litre petrol motor that is present in the Ertiga and joining it will be a 1.3 litre Fiat Multijet turbo diesel engine that powers the current generation SX4. The variants of offer will be LXi, LDi, VXi, VDi, ZXi and ZDi which is the traditional nomenclature for Maruti cars. Hydraulic engine mounts alongside heavy damping are expected to be ones taking charge of NVH control levels.
The ones dealing with the tarmac will be 16 inchers on 195 section rubber in the top end variants while the base variants will do away with 15 inchers. It will follow a dual-tone scheme on the inside with beige and black being the two colours. The car is expected to come with quite an attractive designing up front as well as on the rear. Maruti might just bring in this car as its flagship C segment sedan and reposition the SX4 as a sedan between Dzire and YL1.
