Maruti Suzuki XA Alpha • Price, Variants & Specifications
Maruti Suzuki XA Alpha was unveiled at 2012 New Delhi Auto Expo and is expected to reach Indian markets by end of 2015.
Though Maruti hasn’t revealed details on the engine, it is speculated that the car will be armed with K-series for petrol and DDiS 1.3-liter for diesel units. The mileage is expected to be in the range 8 to 10 km/liter and the top speed near about 180 km/hr for highways.
The car would be available as two-wheel and four-wheel drive. The exterior has been made very appealing with well designed bonnet and aggressive looking five apex grille. It comes with several features that guarantee the comfort of occupants – sun roof, remote boot, steering mounting controls, foldable rear seats, leather seats, electric door mirror, fog lamp and rear defogger. Maruti has incorporated a variety of features to ensure the safety of customers - 2 airbags, 3 rear seatbelts, parking sensors, Anti-lock Braking System and Electronic Brakeforce Distribution. The wide alloy wheels make the car suitable for driving on Indian highways.
Upon launching, it is expected that Maruti Suzuki XA Alpha would give a tough competition to the popular Renault Duster. The Renault model may have a good powertrain of 105 bhp and 148 Nm, but Suzuki XA Alpha has a very luxurious interior to offer. The cabin has leather cushions, cup holders on armrests, music system that is best-in-class, back foldable cushions, climate control and a steering featuring audio control. Moreover, XA Alpha would challenge the dynamic looks of Duster.
