Maruti Versa is a Multi Utility Vehicle (MUV) that was launched by Maruti Udyog Ltd in the Indian market, in October 2001. The mini-van that has got the look of a car is simply superb to flaunt on Indian roads. With its luxurious and classy appeal, powerful performance and versatility, Maruti Versa has been a hit amongst the buyers in India since its very launch. The vehicle is a perfect combination of grandeur and utility and is best suited for a long trip with family and friends.

Engine
Maruti Versa is powered by 16-valve, 4-cylinder, 1298 cc petrol engine that generates maximum power of 82 bhp @ 6000 rpm and maximum torque of 102 Nm @ 3000 rpm. Controlled by a 16-bit Engine Management System, the engine is very powerful and responsive. The meta-tech engine is equipped with 1.3-litre MPFI ignition system as well.

Design And Comfort
Maruti Versa is equipped with several innovative features. Trendy body graphics and bumpers, together, make stunning exteriors. Adding to the beauty are its sparkling headlights that artistically merge with the front grill. Apart from this, the MUV is equipped with a cool rear-view mirror. The micro-van is designed to give the appearance of a big, luxurious car. The space between first and middle rows can be adjusted by sliding the front row seats. Bucket type seats, with reclining facility, ensure a comfortable ride for the second row occupants. The bench seat easily folds down into a table. Heavy luggage can be easily accommodated within the Versa by a simple fold down and somersault of the third row seat. This way, a comfortable and pleasurable trip is ensured by Versa.

Interiors
The interiors of Maruti Versa are quiet attractive. Its flexible seating arrangement provides ample legroom. The vehicle is equipped with side pockets on the doors. To ensure a cushioned comfort, there is a molded carpet, with felt under-layer. With a classy instrumental cluster, Versa comes with twin AC (DX2 variant) for uniform all round cooling. Other features of the micro-van include electronic multi trip meter, molded floor, and cabin lamp.

Ride And Handling
Maruti Versa has a higher power-to-weight ratio, as compared to other Multi Utility Vehicles, which facilitates a superior pickup and acceleration. Riding a Versa is a pleasurable experience, thanks to the smooth and quiet petrol engine that makes lesser noise, as compared to the diesel-driven MUVs. Variable power-assist provides great steering control at high speeds. The true-response electronic power steering applies lesser load on the engine.
