Maruti’s Three-row WagonR

Car India - - BULLETIN -

Maruti Suzuki are re­port­edly closer to anounc­ing a thre-row WagonR. The pop­u­lar “tall-boy” hatch­back has gar­nered many a fan and a home ow­ing to its af­ford­able cost of ac­qui­si­tion and own­er­ship as well as its prac­ti­cal­ity and fru­gal petrol en­gine.

A three-row, seven-seater, sub-four-me­tre WagonR would see the introduction of a bud­get peo­ple-car­rier in a mar­ket where af­ford­able seven-seaters are few and far be­tween; on a car plat­form, any­way. The present WagonR mea­sures 3,599 mm long on a 2,400-mm wheel­base. Even with a stretch, the WagonR would fit well into the sub-four-me­tre bracket. Ex­pect it to con­tinue with the pop­u­lar K10B 1.0-litre three-cylin­der petrol en­gine mak­ing 68 PS and 90 Nm. A choice of a five-speed man­ual or an au­to­mated man­ual trans­mis­sion should be of­fered as well.
