Maruti Suzuki adds more features to the WagonR with the Krest Edition

Maruti Suzuki has added more features to India’s best selling tall-boy hatchback, the WagonR. The fully loaded WagonR is dubbed the Krest edition, and has been launched in time to capitalize on the increased car demand during this year’s festive season. The Krest edtion of the WagonR gets 10 new features at an additional cost of 22,500 rupees. Maruti Suzuki adds that the feature set is worth 32,500 rupees and that the customer stands to gain about 10,000 rupees by opting for the WagonR Krest Edition. Prices of the WagonR start at 3.49 lakh rupees, ex-showroom Delhi.

The 10 additional features on the Krest Edition consists of the following,

  • Revised front grille
  • Double Din Stereo with Bluetooth function
  • Reverse parking sensors with digital display
  • Keyless central locking
  • Seat covers
  • Body graphics
  • Wheel covers
  • Mud flaps
  • Floor mats
  • Steering wheel cover

The WagonR Krest Edition retains its rev-happy 1 liter-3 cylinder K-Series petrol motor that outputs 67 Bhp-90 Nm. This engine can also be specified in LPG-Petrol and CNG-Petrol dual fuel guises. The K-Series motor is likely to gain an automated manual transmission on the 2015 WagonR, a-la-Celerio AMT. At present though, a 5 speed manual gearbox is offered as standard on the WagonR. The tall boy hatchback is one of the few cars in India that get three fuel options, petrol, CNG and LPG.

Maruti Suzuki may also add a diesel option to the WagonR in the coming year or so. The automaker is readying up a diesel variant of the Celerio, which will use the 792 cc twin cylinder turbo diesel engine borrowed from the Y9T pick up truck. The WagonR is likely to share its diesel engine with the Celerio, with which the car already shares its 1 liter K-Series petrol motor. If the WagonR gains a turbo diesel motor as anticipated, the hatchback will be one of the most rounded cars in the Indian car market when it comes to the sheer number of fuel options on offer.
