Maruti XA Alpha has a very boxy design but do not go by the statement. The car is a head-turner with its elegant and simple style along with sleek line. A lot of muscle is thrown around the contour curves which impart solid looks to the four-wheeler. The Maruti XA Alpha pictures of the concept version showcased at the 12th auto expo sports suicide doors which are segment first. Not too sure that the company will keep these in the production version. The coupe like roof-line of the vehicle is reminiscent of the land Rover Evoque and looks breathtaking. The U shaped day time running LED’s will be retained and probably will be the segment first. The large U shaped chrome grill sports the Suzuki logo. The head-lights are very similar to the Audi Q series SUV’s. The rear of the vehicle sports L shaped tail lights. Maruti XA Alpha features are not known as the details and the interiors of the car are not revealed by the auto-maker at the auto expo. The vehicle is expected to have host of features including a four-wheel drive version, hill hold and descend option and various others.
