So the Auto Expo 2018 has started and with that Maruti has taken the wraps off its much awaited Future S Concept. This is the start of something new for Maruti Suzuki. A new segment and a new design language. It is designed completely in-house and will be slotted below the Brezza when it lands in India next year. The Future S previews a new type of crossover for Maruti and will sort of replace the Ignis.

Design wise the Future S is aggressive and unlike any other Maruti Suzuki you have seen. Shorter than the Brezza, the Future S is upright, bold and edgy. We love the slit eye headlamps and the way they join with the grille.

The side view is again unlike any other and the shape is more crossover like with bold lines and a BMW X6 like shape. The rear also is muscular and eye catching. Of course the massive concept like wheels, suicide doors and the colour is something you cannot miss.

The Future S will be built on the lightweight ‘Heartect’ platform with the 1.2 petrol and all new diesel that Maruti is working. The interiors would be watered down from what you see here but would be funky and have cool touches. It would be more spacious than comparable hatches at its expected price point also. Overall a really impressive design that has set the tone for Maruti at the Auto Expo and will further increase its domination at the below Rs 10 lakh space.
