Maruti Suzuki WagonR will be replaced soon with an all-new model. Before the launch, the car has been caught testing in Delhi completely undisguised. The production version of the vehicle even carried the WagonR badge on the rear.
The car was caught fully camouflaged earlier but it has been revealed in the new set of pictures. Suzuki launched the all-new WagonR on the HEARTECT platform in Japan last year and the Indian version looks quite different from that. The tall boy design of the vehicle has been retained. It gets a new headlamp and new multiple slat chrome grille with the Suzuki moniker on it. The bumper gets a huge air dam too.
At the rear, the vehicle gets all-new LED tail lamps integrated cleanly into the pillar. The boot lid is rather clean without any deep creases on it. Even the body looks quite plain and simple.
The all-new WagonR will also get new seats, new dashboard and possibly a touch-screen infotainment system. The car will also get ABS and driver side airbag as standard with the new model. The car will become a lot safer than the current version as it will have to meet the new safety regulations – Bharat New Vehicle Safety Assesment Program (BNVSAP).
Currently, the WagonR is powered by a 1.0-litre petrol engine with 5-speed manual transmission and AMT option. The same engine is expected to be carried forward in the new model. It will also get the AMT option too. Maruti will also offer CNG and LPG option as the vehicle is very popular among the fleet car owners. As reported earlier, the car will not get any mild-hybrid or turbocharged engines in the Indian market.
The launch of the vehicle is expected to happen later this year. However, Maruti has not officially announced the date of the launch. The prices are expected to be same as the current one with a slight increase due to the additional features.
