However there is no account regarding the derivatives of the car so far, but a number of variants are expected within the brand segment.

As it can be clearly foresaid, with a price tag this low, the company once again aims at the common man’s pocket giving tough competition to the already existing Tata Nano.

Maruti Cervo is expected to come well equipped of advanced modern day common features but so far, there is not much revealed about the same. The Company has kept it one of the top secret projects that they have been working on to create anticipation and prepare the market to get set for some 4- seaters as well. However other countries have already witnessed their version of Cervo and it has seemed to have worked well for them.

Here, the news is spreading that after the successful launch of Maruti Cervo petrol model, a diesel powered version is also in the pipeline that will deliver anything above 25 kmpl.


Maruti Cervo Engine, Power and Performance

Maruti Cervo Petrol 660 cc 54/6500 64/3500


Maruti Cervo is powered by a VVT petrol Engine. As known, the Engine is based on the Variable Valve Timing Technology that is famous for delivering high mileage efficiencies with proper combustion. The Engine is well capable of holding a displacement capacity of about 660 cc which is quite fair for a low budget car like Cervo. Moreover with the VVT engine, the car would not feel very delicate in power since the engine itself has been designed to provide optimum power and torque. The new Maruti Cervo is expected to deliver a significant power performance generating around 54 bhp at 6500 rpm and a torque of about 64 Nm at 3500. The engine may not have a very good hold on power but still matches up to the price tag the company has put forth. Moreover, there are speculations hovering in the market that this petrol powered small car will be followed by Maruti Cervo diesel run engine, after its launch in the country.

Hence it will easily surpass all the figures of acceleration being a competitive Maruti product. The small 660cc engine will be capable enough to outpour a straight maximum power of nearly 54 PS at 6500 rpm. Here with this power it will acquire the 100 kph mark from stationary in mere span of 25 seconds. Though this number might look yawning, but is far better than that of Tata Nano and considerable with engine of this minor displacement. On the other hand, this mini motor will generate 64 Nm of peak torque at 3500 rpm that will assist Maruti Cervo in achieving a top speed of approximately 120 kmph. Here, in the Maruti Cervo pickup and acceleration the 5-speed Manual Transmission (MT) will also play a crucial role.

But please note, it is not going to be an Alto at all since at the estimated price range, you can not expect solid body built, exceptional braking or car lock related features. Apart from this, we need to also keep in mind that all the Suzuki cars which directly come from Japan are trimmed versions to have the cost low. But yes, if the company starts its production in India, it will be a cheaper car in comparison to that which is being produced in Japan.

Maruti Cervo Conclusion

After going through the energetic Maruti Cervo review one desperately feels that this impending small is the need of the hour in the current automotive scenario. Especially, when talked about efficient diesel engine the car buyers are bound to get attracted apart from a bit less worthy petrol engine, because of the towering petrol prices.       

As per the latest update, Tata Motors are coming up with Tata Nano Diesel that has nearly 800cc engine under its mini-hood. Tata claims giving out a mileage of 40 kmpl with its refined diesel power train. Here, Maruti should introduce Maruti Cervo Diesel in order to provide some stiff threat to the Nano small car. Also competition will be seen among the Datsun small cars when they debut in 2014.

It will be interesting to see how Maruti positions this modern hatch, will it act as replacement for Maruti 800 or it will possess a separate identity in the stable. Meanwhile, the anticipation touched new heights when the company officially reported that Maruti 800 production is to be shut down soon and this indicates the Maruti Cervo launch much nearer than the expected.
