Maruti Suzuki rIII Concept MPV Goes Live in India
text size: A- A+
Among the vehicle's highlights, it's worth mentioning that it comes with a glass roof, rear tail lamps concealed behind the tinted glass of the back door, aluminum accents along the side plus aluminum details for the interior. An interesting innovation is represented by the sliding rear sets which are automatically pushed back once the rear doors are opened, thus offering more room for stepping into the car.
Suzuki says the R III, which was entirely developed by Suzuki Designers, evolved from a simple sketch to a concept in no less than 9 months, hinting that a production model could be rolled out in the next few years. It was especially created as a vehicle that provides a very large interior room but without affecting the exterior compact proportions, the Japanese manufacturer said.
Technical details are, as you can see, still unavailable, but voices familiar with the matter are claiming that a full specifications list will be revealed in early 2012, prior to the first public appearance of the MPV.
Production will be handled by Suzuki's Indian partner, Maruti, but the MPV might be sold in overseas markets as well.

The RIII seems to be a very sleek car in the MPV Segment. But what all are eager to know is the price tag of the car. Can an approximate price be calculated with specifications indicated. Pl?
