Maruti New Wagon R review

New Maruti Suzuki Wagon R launched!

 

 

 

Maruti Suzuki will launch its all-new Wagon R, come April 23rd. This all-new Wagon R is based on a new platform that currently underpins the Wagon R in the Japanese market. The Wagon R is taller, wider and longer than before and sports new suspension componentry at both the front and the rear.

Power for the new Wagon R will come via the 1.0-litre K Series engine from the A-Star/Estilo with the same 67 bhp of peak power and nearly 10 kgm of peak torque. What Maruti Suzuki have done is altered the gear ratios to make this three-cylinder engine more driveable in the heavier Wagon R. A new dashboard with more features and an integrated audio system are also part of the car in the higher VXi version as well as rear wash-wiper which makes a come back. The larger dimensions also means there is more space on the inside while the seats have gotten wider and more comfortable.

Maruti Suzuki has invested close to Rs 600 crore in this project – around Rs 350 crore at the R&D and assembly line level and Rs 250 crore at the supplier level. Maruti Suzuki will launch the car in three trims - LX, LXi and VXi, but won't be launching a Duo version initially. The Duo LPG version currently constitues about 22-25 per cent of the total sale basket of all Wagon Rs sold. The Wagon R is currently the second best selling model in Maruti's stable and over 800,000 Wagon Rs have been sold since it was first launched in late-1999.

Watch out for a comprehensive drive story on April 23.

Suzuki will have tough time ahead. They have only one petrol engine (k-series) and no diesel engine. They should spend more money on R&D to compete with other global players in India. Old days of monopoly is over.

How much the cost of Wagon R increase approximatly after it comes with k series engine
  Posted by M L Yadav at 15th April,2010
I think Wagon R will come with the 1200 CC Eeco engine. So that they can compete with Ford Figo and Chverolet Beat.
  Posted by M L Yadav at 15th April,2010
Hi Prashant, The LXI model would cost b/w Rs 3.45 Lacs to Rs 3.52 Lacs (ex showrooom Delhi)

i AM EAGERLY WAITING FOR THE LAUNCH OF THIS CAR. GET THE PRICES ON ROAD AT BANGALORE
  Posted by Rohit at 15th April,2010
The new Wagon R seems to be stirring a lot of suspense. Hope the car also delivers. The launch is at the rite time. My father wa planning for a new Automatic car and found that only Wagon R and I10 are available in the small car segment. Considering the old Wagon, we all suggested the I10. Now that the new one Wagon R which is feature loaded is coming, we will definitely go for it. Hope Maruti brings the Automatic for the Wagon R immediately. We already had a Wagon R as Family car. I too own a Wagon R. But always felt why there is no rear wipe, rear power windows, etc when the Zen had all these even in the LXi version. Hope this car will be considered a premium hatchback and they can classify this as a Mini SUV with alloy wheels as SPECIAL EDITION

  Posted by G-Raj at 13th April,2010
Don't we have any clear photos of the new WR? There are a few I've seen on some other autoblogs but not really good enough. Looks like Maruti is keeping the secret and suspense quite well.
