Maruti Suzuki India will launch the all-new WagonR in the Indian market on 23rd January. The upcoming tall boy hatchback has been revealed completely through pictures. Just weeks before the launch, the official brochure of the upcoming Maruti Suzuki brochure has come out and all the details have been revealed.
The all-new WagonR will be available in three trim options – LXi, VXi and ZXi. The AMT automatic transmission would only be available with the mid-level trim VXi and the top level trim ZXi. Rest of the variants would offer a manual transmission as standard. The brochure also confirms that the lower and the higher variants of the hatchback would get two different engine options.
The lower LXi variants would get the 1.0-litre engine that is available with the current version of the car while the top-end ZXi variants would come with the 1.2-litre engine, which also powers the likes of Maruti Suzuki Ignis and the Swift. The mid variant VXi would be offered with both the engine options. It is for the first time that the WagonR is available with the more powerful 1.2-litre engine. The 1.2-litre four-cylinder petrol engine produces a maximum power of 82 Bhp at 6,000 rpm and a peak torque of 113 Nm at 4,200 rpm. The 1.0-litre, three-cylinder petrol engine produces a maximum power of 67 Bhp at 5,500 rpm and a 90 Nm of peak torque at 3,500 rpm.
The all-new WagonR will come in 6 colour options, namely Superior White, Silky Silver, Magna Grey, Autumn Orange, Nutmeg Brown and Poolside Blue. The car measures 3,655mm, Width 1,620mm, Height 1,675mm, Wheelbase 2,435mm. It gets a short turning radius of 4.7 metres. The all-new WagonR gets disc brakes in the front wheels and drum brakes in the rear wheels.
The Indian version of the all-new WagonR looks quite different from the international version, which is available in the Japanese Domestic Market. The Indian version of the WagonR gets a simple looking front-end with a slim looking chrome strip and Suzuki logo in the middle. It gets a thick C-Pillar with a black insert that gives a floating effect to the roof of the all-new WagonR. At the rear, it gets tall tail lamps that make it look like Volvo cars.
The dashboard of the all-new WagonR is dual-tone. It gets black and beige finish with a touchscreen infotainment system. The steering also gets chrome inserts and mounted controls for the infotainment system and the Bluetooth telephony. Apart from that, the driver-side airbag is expected to be standard across the variants to meet the upcoming safety regulations. It will also get ABS and EBD as standard alongside rear parking sensors, seatbelt reminder and speed warning. The all-new WagonR would take on the Hyundai Santro directly.
