There are some spy pictures of Maruti Suzuki’s upcoming MPV, the Maruti R3 which will make its debut in India soon. One of these pictures seem to have been clicked inside some room and other one has been clicked on road during the road tests at Rajasthan roads in India. In a fresh news that have come out via reputed automobile publication Autocar India suggest that Maruti R3 MPV may feature a 1.4 Liter K MPFI Petrol series engine, the K14 from Suzuki rather than the 1.2 Liter K series engine.
This makes sense for an MPV since an MPV is usually larger and in more heavy, so a more powerful engine is preferable to maintain good performance level of the cars on full load. The performance of an MPV is critical as people usually take their MPVs on long vacations on hilly roads, slopes and high altitudes where good pulling power and torque is all the more important.
The 1.4 Liter MPFI K14 engine delivers around 95 BHP of power and about 130 Nm of torque. This means better performance and better acceleration when compared with a 1.2 Liter K12 engine with max power close to 80 BHP.
The Diesel engine variant of the Maruti R3 will be powered by a 1.3 Liter CRDI Multi-jet Diesel engine with a variable geometry turbocharger which does its duty diligently in the Diesel version of the Maruti SX4 sedan. The powerful and peppy diesel engine will be a great match for the MPV with a power rating of about 90 BHP and a wonderful torque of 200 Nm. In India, buyers prefer Diesel over Petrol MPVs because of their low running cost and better torque to handle more loads on uneven terrains. So providing its most tried and tested diesel which does its duty in SX4 diesel is a wise thing.
