India’s largest automobile manufacturer, Maruti, will be launching its new small car, Maruti Suzuki Cervo in India in the month of July 2011. The new Maruti Cervo, an A-Segment hatchback, is a bundle of elegant features, cheap pricing and an all new sporty look. According to IndiaOnCars, the small car will sit between the 800cc Maruti Suzuki Alto and the Maruti Suzuki A-Star.
Even though the Maruti Cervo is a family car, it carries the charm to entice the younger breed of car owners as well. Features on board the Maruti Cervo include power steering, air conditioner and the higher variant of the Cervo will also sport additional features like fog lights, power windows and a central locking system. Depending on the launch price of the Cervo, the basic variant may or may not feature colored bumpers and body colored door handles but expect the higher end variants to sport these features.
The exterior body line of the Maruti Cervo is well designed sporting neat and classy lines and cuts. Up front is an impressive line-up of an arching roof-line and sporty headlamps and fog lamps. On the rear-end of the Maruti Cervo is a set of rather large tail-lamps, which frankly speaking don’t quite seem to go with the overall design of the Cervo.
The Maruti Cervo will be powered by a 658cc MPFi Petrol engine capable of delivering a maximum power of about 54 BHP @ 6500 rpm and maximum torque of about 64 Nm @ 3500 rpm. A city mileage of 17 KMPL and a highway mileage of 21 KMPL is that the Cervo is expected to deliver and those figures will make the small car a very hot seller.
The expected price for the Maruti Cervo is in the range of Rs. 2.25 – 3.5 lakh. The base price of INR 2.25 Lakhs somehow looks a little unrealistic considering the high tech, latest generation K series 660cc engine and the features the Cervo might bring to the table. However Maruti might also lower the price tag for the base variant a little bit so as to attract potential Nano customers. So, we’re taking it with a pinch of salt. Meanwhile, here are some speculated technical specifications and price points for the 2011 Maruti Suzuki Cervo.
