Maruti Suzuki is all set to launch their new WagonR hatchback in the Indian market on the 23rd of January. Ahead of its launch, a video has surfaced, revealing the interiors of the new WagonR with the Auto Gear Shift (AGS) transmission unit.
The video showcases the new Maruti WagonR with a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system and the electrically adjustable ORVMs with integrated turn indicators. As seen from the leaked brochure recently, the AMT is available on the mid and top-spec trims of the new WagonR - VXi (1.2-litre), ZXi (1.0-litre) and ZXi (1.2-litre).
Powering the new WagonR is a choice of two petrol engines: 1.0-litre and 1.2-litre. The smaller 1.0-litre petrol unit is the same as seen on all previous generation models while the 1.2-litre engine has been borrowed from the Ignis and the Swift hatchbacks.
The 1.0-litre petrol engine continues to produce 67bhp and 90Nm of peak torque. This engine will be available for all three trims of the new WagonR (LXi, VXi and ZXi). The larger 1.2-litre four-cylinder power unit produces 89bhp and 113Nm of torque. This engine will be available only on the mid and top-spec variants (VXi and ZXi).
Both engines will further come mated to a five-speed manual gearbox as standard. The mid and top-spec variants will further come with the option of the AGS transmission. Maruti Suzuki is also said to offer a CNG variant of the new WagonR, however, this will be available only with the smaller 1.0-litre engine.
The video showcases the new WagonR in the Nutmeg Brown colour option — one among the six choices available. The remaining five paint schemes include Superior white, Silky Silver, Magnum Grey, Autumn Orange & Poolside Blue.
Apart from the new WagonR, Maruti Suzuki is also said to be planning to introduce a brand new SUV (above 4 metres) to take on the Hyundai Creta in the Indian market. The new Maruti SUV if launched will make use of the newly developed 1.5-litre DDiS225 diesel engine. The in-house developed 1.5-litre diesel unit will debut on the Ciaz sedan sometime next year.
