The company’s first compact SUV, aimed at the Ford EcoSport will continue their attempt to go premium. It will be drawing some inspiration from the XA Alpha concept showcased during the 2012 Auto Expo. There is still a long time before the YBA hits the roads but it will most probably be armed with the same engines used in most run off the mill Maruti cars.

The 7 seater MPV which the company is going to base most probably on the WagonR is going to be a very interesting product. Placed below the Ertiga, it will have the opportunity to eat into the market of not just the Go+ but also a lot of hatchbacks. Apart from the 1.3 L diesel it is also expected to be powered by the 1.2L K series petrol.
