Maruti 800 has been a legend in India for decades before it got finally phased out from the cities with BS4 emission norms implemented last year. With time, it will be phased out completely when BS4 emission norms will be applied nationwide. To make up for the missing candidate in the small car of Maruti 800 portfolio, Maruti Suzuki is working hard with its research and development team and the 100% made in India car, code named Maruti YE3 is in the making. The Maruti YE3, which will be given a name later by Maruti, will debut at the Auto Expo 2012 in Delhi. Maruti will display the Indian engineering product at the expo to gain public reactions and feedbacks. Based on the reactions and feedback, some tweaks and feature changed will be done to the small car before it hits the assembly line for mass production. The car Maruti YE3 will be launched by mid of 2012 if all goes well. Last year, there were some reports about possibility of Maruti Suzuki bringing its Japanese small car to India as Maruti Cervo, which seems quite unlikely as Maruti is now working on an indigenous and new design YE3 which will be more suited for India.

Although Maruti might not bring Cervo car with 660CC, 54 BHP engine to India, yet the possibility of Maruti YE3 using the same engine can not be sidelined. Also there is a possibility to use the existing Maruti Alto's 800 CC engine with some re-tuning which has a good fuel economy. Maruti YE3 will most likely be priced at Rs. 2 Lakh to Rs.2.5 Lakhs to place it aptly below the Alto 800 CC and competitor cars. Its now a wait and watch situation as the development is on but the official information will most likely be announced around January 2012 around the Auto Expo 2012 to be held in Delhi.
The primary competitors of Maruti YE3 will be Hyundai 800, Tata Nano V2, Chevrolet Spark 800, Maruti Alto 800 CC and other small cars which will hit Indian roads by mid of 2012. We are keeping our fingers crossed and eyes open to watch out for any interesting developments in this more than ever intense small car market in India.
