Maruti Suzuki working on a new 1-litre turbocharged engine

Snapshot: Maruti Suzuki is developing a new 1.0 litre Turbocharged engine, powering its upcoming YRA premium hatchback

Ford with its EcoBoost engines, Volkswagen with the EA211, GM with their Ecotec family and Tata with the recently launched Revotron engine. These are the names of the manufacturers which have already left their mark in the turbocharged petrol engine segment. And now India's largest car manufacturer Maruti Suzuki is all set to join the gang of leading carmakers, who have been developing versatile small capacity turbocharged engines. The manufacturer is developing a new turbocharged engine to power its upcoming hatchback. 

Codenamed as K10C, the new engine will produce around 90 bhp and is most likely to be used in the company’s upcoming YRA premium hatchback. This car will be placed above the Swift and is expected to hit Indian roads by end of 2015. This new turbocharged mill belongs to the under-development family of petrol turbocharged engines, on which Maruti Suzuki India (MSI) is currently working. Named- Direct Injection Turbo Charged (DiCT), this new engine family will primarily include 1.0l, 1.2l and 1.5l engines, powering the future offerings from the company.

Recently Maruti Suzuki has halted the export of its car to European market for the next 18 months, due to slowing sales. This YRA hatchback will be a global car for Suzuki and hopefully it will bring the sales as-well-as smiles back!
