Maruti Suzuki India Limited (MSIL) plans to introduce an all new compact car design language in the form of #ConceptFutureS in February. #ConceptFutureS is being touted by MSIL as a uniquely styled compact car that has SUV like characters aimed to delight customers in the compact car space.
MSIL plans to redefine compact car design language with #ConceptFutureS by creating its own market positioning beyond conventional proportions. A few design cues from the sketch reveal an upright stance, higher seating & ground clearance, and a horizontal hood.
The urban SUV image is accentuated by the bold and upright front, with a distinctive A-pillar treatment, that connects to the accent on the side sill, prominent shoulders and a raised rear volume to provide a dynamic appeal.
Explaining #ConceptFutureS, CV Raman, Senior Executive Director (Engineering), MSIL, said, “The increasing preference for UVs and their bold architecture inspired our design team to study a new character for compact cars. ConceptFutureS could mark a distinctive shift in how compact cars are shaped and designed in India in the future.”
