Expectedly the car will fall under the 4-meter category with enormous cabin space when compared to a mid-sized sedan. It is also said to be sporting a 3-cylinder CRDI heart with a displacement of 1500CC. The reason for this smaller version is to fill the space in the small car band which should have got filled earlier and we could also see a dual cab pickup model of the same soon after its official launch.
