Images of the Japan-spec 2017 Suzuki Wagon R have surfaced online. These leaked images completely reveal the new Wagon R and Stingray models. While the pictures you see here are of the car for the Japanese market, the next Maruti Wagon R for India could borrow heavily from this model in terms of design. There have been multiple reports suggesting the new 2017 Maruti Wagon R is scheduled to arrive in India by the end of this year or early 2018. These images of the 2017 Wagon R give us a glimpse of what the next generation 2017 Maruti Suzuki Wagon R might look like.
2017 Maruti Suzuki Wagon R – Design
Akin to the current model, the new 2017 Wagon R for India will not be exactly identical to the one that will be sold in Japan. However, it will borrow heavily from the Japanese model in terms of design. While the front end might feature a slightly different look, the side profiles of both cars could be identical.
The rear end styling of the Wagon R for India will surely be different. The one seen in images here boasts low mounted stop lamps. However, this will not go down well with Indian tastes, so expect the India-bound Wagon R to feature a more conventional setup.
2017 Maruti Suzuki Wagon R Launch
|Model||Expected Launch Date|
|2017 Maruti Suzuki Wagon R||End 2017|
Maruti could unveil the production spec Wagon R by the end of this year. But, for now, Maruti will be focussing on the new Swift and Dzire models for the Indian market. The new model Wagon R will come after those two.
2017 Maruti Suzuki Wagon R Price
|Model||Estimated Ex-Showroom Price|
|2017 Maruti Suzuki Wagon R Base Model||Rs. 4 lakh|
|2017 Maruti Suzuki Wagon R Top Model||Rs. 5.5 lakh|
Prices will fall in the same bracket as the current model. Expect the base LXi trim to cost around Rs. 4 lakh and the top end VXi AMT to cost around 5.5 lakhs.
2017 Maruti Suzuki Wagon R Specifications
In all probability, the 1.0 L Petrol engine will continue to power the Maruti Wagon R. Apart from a 5-speed manual transmission option, a 5-speed AMT will also be on offer. Here’s what the current WagonR’s spec sheet looks like
|Engine||1.0 L Petrol|
|Transmission||5-speed Manual/5-speed AMT|
Aside from the launch of the new 2017 Maruti Wagon R, there have also be rumours suggesting MSIL will bring the Wagon R MPV to India. However, with MPVs fast losing popularity, those planes could have already been shelved.
