A segment which also has cars like the KUV100 and the Renault Kwid. In the family garage, the Future S is likely to slot itself below the sub-compact Vitara Brezza. Maruti Suzuki has said in the past, that the Future S concept will define the Maruti Suzuki design language over the next generation,

So far we know that the Future S Concept will be underpinned by the 5th generation HEARTECT platform, which it will share with the Baleno, the Swift and the Dzire. What sets the HEARTECT platform apart is its high-torrision low-weight architecture that allows for rigidity complying with the upcoming BNSVP safety norms. Aside from the Future S will have a design that will resemble a five-door SUV retro-scaled, giving you the advantage of a tall-seating position along with high ground clearance. While the teaser may not reveal a lot it does show, the Maruti Suzuki Future S concept might get LED lamps and an embossed grille. the car might also sport dual-tone diamond-cut alloy wheels and LED tail lamps.
While Maruti Suzuki has kept the mechanicals and the interior spec on the down low, the Future S is likely to get the Maruti Suzuki’s 1.2-litre VVT petrol motor, which is rated to 83 hp and 113 Nm of torque. Alongside the tested Fiat 1.3 litre diesel motor sourced from FIAT could make it on the Future S. However, it is likely that both diesel and petrol models can be had with a 5-speed manual or a 5-speed AMT.
