Maruti Suzuki is all set to launch the all-new Baleno in the Indian market on 23rd January. Maruti has also started bookings officially for the car and the new models have started reaching dealerships too. The all-new WagonR would be offered in three trim levels – LXi, VXi and ZXi. This is what the base model of the WagonR will look like.
The new picture put up by GaadiWaadi shows the base LXi version of the upcoming WagonR at a dealership stockyard. While the higher end ZXi and the VXi have already been spotted before the launch, this is the first time that the base LXi version has been caught on the camera.
The base variant of the Maruti Suzuki WagonR will come with steel rims without any covers and black handles, just as shown in the pictures. It also gets black mirrors. But the bumpers are body coloured. Apart from that, there are no external changes that differentiate the base from the rest in the new WagonR.
The all-new WagonR is based on the new HEARTECT platform. The all-new WagonR has become bigger too. It is now 19mm longer and 125mm wider, which makes it roomier than before. With the new platform, the all-new WagonR will also become lighter than before and is expected to return more fuel efficiency and better performance.
Visually, the all-new WagonR has changed completely. It gets new headlamps with a kink on it while the front-end gets a new bumper. The thick C-Pillar gets a black insert that makes the pillar look thinner and adds a floating roof effect. The rear of the all-new WagonR has transformed completely too and it now gets tall tail lamps. The tall body design of the WagonR is retained even in the all-new model.
The all-new WagonR will be available in 7 variants – LXi, VXi 1.0, VXi 1.0 AGS, VXi 1.2, VXi 1.2 AGS, ZXi and ZXi AGS. For the first time ever, the all-new WagonR will be offered with two engine options. There will be a 1.0-litre three-cylinder engine from the current version and the 1.2-litre four-cylinder engine which powers the Ignis, Swift and even the Baleno in the market. Both the engines types will get the AMT automatic transmission. At the time of the launch, Maruti will not offer a factory-fitted CNG option but that is expected to be launched at a later date.
On the inside, the all-new WagonR has been revamped too. It gets a touchscreen infotainment system on the top-end models. The steering wheel is also new and gets mounted buttons to control the infotainment system and Bluetooth telephony. The all-new WagonR also gets front seat belt reminder, speed alert system, rear parking sensors, driver-side airbag and ABS + EBD as standard across the variants.
