Maruti Suzuki 800 facelift spotted

Our friends at have managed to get some test mule camouflaged images of the new Maruti Suzuki 800, which is all set to replace the existing one this December 2012.

Maruti Suzuki has been quite clear on the fact that the Maruti 800 replacement will offer more space while retaining the Alto’s F8D petrol engine. However, this engine will come with some more technology to make it more peppy and frugal while also serving to match the competition(Read Hyundai Eon), which has forged ahead on the engine technology front. The purported Maruti 800 replacement’s design is muscular and chunky, quite unlike the old Maruti 800′s plain-jane breadbox looks. The car comes with headlamps that look to be inspired by the Ford Figo while the air dam has the Renault Pulse written all over it.

The headlamps and the front bumper seem to be inspired from the Ford Figo. The huge hexagonal grill is reminiscent of the A- Star. The grill has a small horizontal chrome slat with a Suzuki logo embedded in it. The hood features an extremely sharp crease sweeping to the A-Pillar.

The rear almost seems like it was designed by Hyundai designers. The overall shape resembles of the i10 but with i20 inspired tail lamps at both ends. The rear image also reveals that this is an LXI variant (essentially a base variant with less frills).
