Maruti Suzuki has made an announcement about the global preview of an all-new concept car, called the 'Future S' at the Auto Expo 2018. In a report by Autocar India, the company has stated that the Future S is a fresh design language for a new compact car segment and 'represents the next level of design evolution'.
In the teaser sketches which have been revealed, the Future S, with its two-box silhoutte, upright stance and muscular haunches, is a compact SUV. More importantly, the Future S SUV will mark a shift from the conventional and ordinary shapes of Maruti's standard hatchbacks and also a sign that Maruti is finally moving into the lower strata of the SUV segment. The production version of the Future S will be built on Suzuki's lightweight 'Heartect' platform, while engine options are likely to include the K-series 1.2-litre petrol, alongside some form of electric technology powertrain as well, and a future 1.5-litre diesel developed in-house.
